This is an open community for Metal-heads in Melbourne. A place to plug gigs, discuss gigs, tours, tour rumours, tour rumours, more tour rumours, reviews, fashion tips (bring back spray on black Fabs!), beer, intelligence, more beer, beer (the vomiting of), CD's, DVD's, demo's, the AC/DC special on Rage, your best mate Wazza's stoner rock cones session last Friday, Australian Metal & basically ...all things metal.

Membership is open, & not precluded to Melbourne locals. The scene here is brutal, but it just doesn't get enough recognition. This community is intended to tilt that balance. If you live anywhere in Australia, or the world, & are interested in what's going on in the hotbed of the Oz metal scene, you're welcome to join, contribute, keep it friendly, & mock us gently.
