Malakyte Live Review (Bendigo Hotel) Nov 9

Having been born in 1994 I wouldn’t have had the chance to go to shows held by all the classic thrash bands like Metallica and Megadeth in their prime, at a pub or small venue where the band and the fans were so close you could almost taste each others sweat, sure I could go to a Megadeth show now, but they play in stadiums, there’s some sort of itch that can’t scratch.

I’d just like to say this itch has been scratched by Brisbane thrash band Malakyte, (supporting the release of their kick arse album Human Resonance) and to those astute enough you’d noticed I’d just said that Malakyte is in the same league as Metallica and Megadeth, I have no hesitation in making this claim as these guys left my neck sore for a week.

Pure thrasing goodness was on offer with one of the tightest sounding live shows I’ve been to, and as a nice bonus almost every song played was off Human Resonance, a great first outing for the band with one excellent cover of Peace Sells from Megadeth, personal highlights for myself include Inbetween Terminals and Media Suicide.
The brass balls that these guys bought onto the stage was admirable, these guys know how to put on a damned good show, each and every member was intense, including a hilarious bit where the guitarist formed a mosh pit around him right in the middle of the crowd and riding on the shoulders of one of the attendees.

If these guys are gonna be playing near you make sure to round up all your mates and go to that gig, these guys are damned good and you’ll be having yourself a great neck workout.

METAL WARRIORS!

Welcome to the domain of METAL WARRIORS!
This movement is undoubtedly the undisputed home of all things Heavy Metal in Australia. Music videos, concert and rockumentary film productions, concert and event organization and promotion, artist representation, reviews and interviews and contribution to the Heavy Metal community.

Today we are officially re-launching the official website for the organization that established the movement that preserved Heavy Metal in Australia back in the days where the music industry was attempting to wipe Heavy Metal off the map.

With a special ‘Video Magazine’ and various community actions, METAL WARRIORS became renowned for taking Australian Metal to the rest of the World and bringing Metal of the world to Australia.

METAL WARRIORS never bowed to pressure from the music industry back in the 90’s upon the foundation of Metal Warriors in 1995 and still lives on in 2014.

We now bring to you the new generation of METAL WARRIORS, a new wave of young bloods that looked up to the effortless work of the team at METAL WARRIORS who contributed a great part to making Heavy Metal what it is today.

Together with the original founders of METAL WARRIORS, we will continue with the movement!

In 2015, we will be celebrating 20 years of Metal Warriors so let’s all prepare for a huge celebration!

Rock on and stay Metal!
Metal Warriors Team
