Hot on the heels of its immensely successful Progfest tour, which showcased many of Australia’s best up and coming progressive rock and metal bands, Welkin Entertainment returns with the Sonic Forge Festival, which will be held across three stages at Melbourne’s Esplanade Hotel on 15 December 2012. Welkin Entertainment is the brain-child of Ne Obliviscaris violinist, Tim Charles, and, well, the line-up he has compiled for Sonic Forge speaks for itself. Co-headlined by Ne Obliviscaris and Be’lakor, Sonic Forge is set to also unleash the likes of Dreadnaught, Alarum, The Schoenberg Automaton, A Million Dead Birds Laughing and recent Heavy Blog favourites, Gods of Eden, in what promises to be nothing less than an onslaught of awesome Australian metal.
The full list of bands that will be tearing the Espy apart on the 15th is as follows:
A Million Dead Birds Laughing
The Levitation Hex
Gods Of Eden
Hours In Exile
EnvenomedThe Schoenberg Automaton
Eye of the Enemy
The Plague Black
