Final Shows for 2018 +
New Animated Album Cover Art for End Of This
Wollongong’s CARBON BLACK bring serious noise. This thunderous four piece play a charging brand of groove metal, mashing Pantera levels of attitude with melodies that Disturbed would take to arenas.
Their crushing new album, End Of This, was released in September and the band are wrapping up the year with two big shows this weekend.
The band are also very proud to unveil the new animated album cover for End Of This, made by Glenn Hansen at albumsinmotion.com.
Based in the USA, he's the man behind some amazing animated classic album covers you may have seen, the likes of Iron Maiden, UFO, Kiss, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Ozzy and many more which have been endorsed by the artists themselves!
For 'End of This', Glenn has taken the original artwork by Mike Morphett and given it a demonic spark of life!

Avalon's Peak Album Launch Our vocalist Jon recently graduated from AIM, and his classmates in "Avalon's Peak" asked us if we'd perform at their album launch. Not only have they made a killer album, they're great guys too - so we're very happy to be on the lineup.

We always have an awesome time performing at DIMEDAY, there's such a great atmosphere! This year is particularly special, as we are now celebrating the life of both Abbott brothers. We have some great songs planned to pay tribute to Dime and Vinnie, and the lineup of bands is fantastic. It's going to be a great evening.

We last performed in Adelaide for our EP launch back in 2014, and we can't wait to get back! This is the third annual Churches of Steel Festival, and it keeps getting bigger every year! We're looking forward to performing with so many amazing bands.
