Overdrive Magazine & Touring have announced the creation of a monthly heavy metal live band nightclub entitled FORGE. The inaugural event will take place at the iconic Max Watt's House of Music in the heart of Melbourne's CBD on July 14th with a stacked lineup of Australia's best in up-and-coming heavy metal talent.

The monthly metal night extravaganza is the latest creation by upstart touring company Overdrive Touring and their media outlet partner Overdrive Music Magazine - who will be sharing their 1st birthday during the event as a celebration. Overdrive's Bailey Graham has released a statement on the creation of Forge:

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be combining both the resources of Overdrive Touring and Magazine to launch our very own metal-only live band nightclub. Not only is this the first and only destination for metal heads to enjoy a club-like atmosphere and killer live bands, but this will also mark the first birthday of Overdrive Music Magazine. Looking at the current nightlife scene in Melbourne, there is a significant demand for live metal nights, which we hope to fulfil indefinitely in the coming months."

Forge's inaugural incarnation will feature a stacked lineup of both Victorian and interstate talent performing both original and cover sets throughout the night. Queensland folk metal natives Valhalore will be headlining the night with their infectious European-inspired melodic metal brilliance in what will be their only Melbourne show for 2018. Melbourne's gothic-industrial powerhouse Witchgrinder will be performing their final show of 2018, and will be bringing the heat (literally) with their full stage-show of epic proportions. Rounding off the bill are native Victorians Trigger and Triple Kill - two of Melbourne's most respected and hardest-working acts of the past 12 months, each with their own unique and in-your-face heavy metal attack.

With DJs playing till late and plenty of prizes and competitions throughout the night, make sure you don't miss what is set to be the party of the year for Melbourne's metal scene!
