The FULL PROGRAM from february 2021

ASTRODEATH

Astrodeath are a duo born in 2018 as the heavy-hitting, sludge-grunge brainchild of Timmy Lancken (guitar and vocals) and Yoshi Hausler (drums). Their self-titled debut album is a concoction of tormented vocals, heavy slabs of evil riffage and titanic drums that will slap you right across the head.

BATTLESNAKE

Featuring a litany of incredible 80’s metal rock riffage and a light show to expel the retinas out the back of your head, the renaissance of Rock and Roll is here when Battlesnake annihilate a stage near you.

SCABZ

SCABZ are a driving force behind Australia’s punk scene, serving up direct and unapologetic protest in songs like ‘Feel Good Summer,’ next to tales of drunken nights out with Australian Fast Bowler Brett Lee with ease. SCABZ are closing in on a full, reckless and energetic sound that no other act in Australia can match.

PurEnvY

PurEnvy hail from the steel city of Newcastle, NSW. Fusing elements of thrash metal with harmonies reminiscent of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. PurEnvy have been perfecting their craft for many years, appealing to a wide range of heavy music fans, and attracting a loyal following along the way.

C.O.F.F.I.N

Forming in 2005 as schoolmates influenced by a huge love for music, skateboarding and a good-times-all-the-time attitude. Over the years they developed their own sound, loosely described as Psychotic Skate-Punk and Aussie Pub-Thrash. Open up your hearing meat wide so Children of Finland Fighting in Norway can punch your brain with their crispy tunes.

HOON

Wollongong punks Hoon have developed a distinct take on the genre, spanning elements of psychedelia, garage and sludge metal into their musical output. Forming in late 2013, Hoon began earning their stripes through supporting acts like Clowns, Dune Rats, Mesa Cosa and Gay Paris.

BASIL'S KITE

Firmly tongue in cheek, Basil's Kite are an experiemental punk/ metal band spanning Wollongong to Katoomba. With EPs Technicolour Fuckfest and Celestial Shitshow, and most recently Baby, their dark freaky tunes will slide their way into your soul this Thrashville.

CHOP

Forming in Mid 2019, CHOP have made noise around the Newcastle scene with their hard hitting lyrics, pounding bass lines and engaging live performances. Speaking on political issues, the duo aren't afraid to speak their mind when it comes to their music. Thrashville anticipates an electric performance by these local metal heads, plug us in and give us a shock we say.

NO QUARTER

It's game on Punks and Punkettes as No Quarter gear up to take on the Thrashy stage with their no fucks given 90's vibe. With 15 years under their belts and a die-hard fan base littered over Australia, this five piece powerhouse will get ya standing in front of your chair needing more.

ZOMBONIMO

DARK HORSE

Sydney’s Dark Horse have been around for a decade now, playing their brand of D-Beat Hardcore throughout Australia as well as smashing out two European tours, two tours of Japan and a short trip to New Zealand. Constant touring and playing has led to a tight, energetic and aggressively fun live set. 2021 will see the release of their long-awaited third LP as well as national and (hopefully) international live appearances. Dark Order has cancelled their gig at Thrashville 2021 due to unforeseeable medical reasons.

RAGDOLL

Young Maitland ladies Ragdoll are making their Thrashville debut in 2021. This all girl band slam it out in their respective garages like true early career artists. Let's make this young coven of powerful women feel welcome at Thrashville.

THE WITCHING HOUR

The Witching Hour, hailing from the Central Coast area (NSW, Australia), are a hard rock band riddled with haunting vocals, guitars of ethereal yet abrasive manner and a rhythm section that pummels through all in its way without any sign of mercy.

BOUDICCA

Boudicca is a hardcore punk rock band from Awabakal Country, Australia. Boudicca's lyrical themes delve into the representations of women in folklore, myth, ancient history and modern history through a cheeky but staunchly political lens.
