A Brand New Metal Festival is Coming to Melbourne

Obscura and Gatecreeper are locked in to headline a brand new Melbourne metal festival in March.

Called Into The Fall, the festival is the brainchild of triple j The Racket host Lochlan Watt and Matthew Chalk, the original vocalist for band Psycroptic and booker for Dark Mofo.

Obscura – ‘Solaris’

In a statement to triple j, Watt talked about Obscura’s latest album, 2021’s A Valediction. “[It] is arguably their finest work yet, redefining the band once more with a piercingly focused approach to technically dazzling songwriting that simply beggars belief,” he told the station.

It’ll mark Obscura’s first show in Australia in five years, and it will be Gatecreeper’s first trip down under. Other internationals on the lineup include Texan crew Stabbing, British sci-fi death metal outfit Cryptic Shift, and New York’s Undeath. On the local front, expect sets from Inverloch, Freedom Of Fear, Altars, Carcinoid, and more. Check out the full lineup below.

It’s all going down at the Croxton Bandroom in Melbourne on Saturday, 18th March – tickets will send you back about $115.
