Announcing the MAX & IGGOR CAVALERA ‘BENEATH THE REMAINS AND ARISE’ tour – celebrating an incredible selection of the best tracks from the two albums each night!
The legendary brotherly duo of MAX & IGGOR CAVALERA will be once again be looking to their past with an upcoming tour of Australia set for March 2019. The siblings, whose anniversary tour for Sepultura‘s “Roots“ sold out every show in Australia, will now be setting their sights on their earlier efforts, namely 1989’s “Beneath The Remains” and 1991’s “Arise“.
‘Beneath The Remains’ is indisputably a certifiable thrash classic and one of the most brilliant pieces of thrash metal ever produced. To say the record catapulted the Brazilians onto the world stage is an understatement.
‘Arise’, as a standalone slice of artistic fury, remains one of metal’s most complete works—an album that erupted in its own right in regards to creative output, popularity and staying power, standing the test of time and is a relentless assault of speed and thrash metal
This once in a lifetime opportunity to hear an incredible selection of the best tracks from these two classic albums is what metal fans dream of. Tickets go on sale Wednesday 16 January, 9am.
2019 TOUR DATES:
Sunday 17 March Metropolis, Fremantle – 18+
Tuesday 19 March The Gov, Adelaide – 18+
Thursday 21 March 170 Russell, Melbourne – 18+
Friday 22 March Valley Drive In, Brisbane – 18+
Saturday 23 March Metro Theatre, Sydney – 18+
Sunday 24 March The Basement, Canberra – 18+

As a powerful teaser for their new album ‘Black Light White Dark’, due out in early 2019, London’s ethereal alt-rock outfit Evi Vine presents ‘Sabbath’ featuring The Cure’s Simon Gallup on bass and Peter Yates of Fields of the Nephilim on guitar.
They have also unveiled a new video for this track, created by Craig Murray, known for his extensive work with Mogwai. After asking Evi for ten words to describe the video they wanted, Murray took his favourite things, horror, liquids, hair and sealife to create a semi narrative film.
Brisbane’s hard-out and heavy outfit Lavidius are today pushing out to sea with a new frontman in the form of Ben Davis (also of Brissy’s Tria Mera) and brand new cargo on board – a heavy ditty about the tale of Spanish Pirate Captain Benjamin Hornigold. It’s the first taste of what the noted front-man is bringing to Lavidius and it’s a beer-swilling, chugging tune that sets a new standard and vibe to the band.
The new single is available for purchase and streaming at iTunes/Apple Music, Spotify and all good online outlets.
