Following on from a massively successful return in 2018, SLAYFEST is proud to announce its saddling up again in 2019 with a massive 15 band line-up to deliver a night of total rock n roll brutality over 3 stages.
Headlining will be none other than the legendary PHILIP H. ANSELMO AND THE ILLEGALS, who on his first visit to Australia in over 5 years, is now heading west to blast powerhouse anthems from his days in Pantera, alongside cuts from his latest solo album “Choosing Mental Illness as a Virtue” and its predecessor “Walk Through Exits Only”.
“I’m looking forward to getting back over to Australia & soaking up the killer vibes…touring with King Parrot on their turf is an honour…let the absurdities commence!” Phil Anselmo
Joining PHILIP H. ANSELMO AND THE ILLEGALS and rollin’ into Perth for a massive night of mayhem at SLAYFEST, will be the Thrash Blast Grind gang of Aussie grind road dogs KING PARROT, highly revered hardcore-metal crossover act PALM and Sydney’s newest exponents of all things doom POTION.. who join Sydney’s stoner sludge bandits BLACK RHENO and a heavy posse of the west’s finest metal, punk and hardcore acts.
Leading the 10 strong charge from the west at SLAYFEST will be Perth metal legends PATHOGEN who return for a very special set.. performing their 2005 classic album “Bloodline” from start to finish, plus reforming hook laden chunk rockers, LOOSE UNIT who come out of a long hiatus to perform at SLAYFEST, and PSYCHONAUT, DETHLAHEM, BEERFRIDGE, BATTLE SWORD STEEL MASTER, RAT KING, BAYVIEW SUSPECT, FREAK VIBE and BLACKWITCH
