Absoluten Calfeutrail and Default Jamerson to support France's Monarch

Both Absoluten Calfeutrail and Default Jamerson will be supporting France's doom lords, Monarch this Wednesday night for their second Melbourne show at Horse Bazaar. It's presented by Heathen Skulls and the wonderful Stutter. The two are on second and first respectively. $10/5 at the door.

MONARCH (France)

Female fronted, funeral doom lords Monarch are set to embark on their maiden voyage of Australia. It's been a long time coming but the wait is over! Hailing from the south of France, since 2004 Monarch have been creating ear bleeding walls of feedback via the slowest riffs. Their music ventures on drone as the tempo is slow and throbbing. Think Sunn O)) meets early Melvins and Black Sabbath.

In the middle of doing two Melbourne club shows Monarch have graciously chosen to play a special low key show for Stutter, much like Pig Destroyer did a few months back. Monarch are presenting something special that's strictly a one off.

Candle Snuffer (Dave Brown of Embers, Pateras/Baxter/Brown, etc.) and Black Widow (Robert MacManus of Grey Daturas) have been projecting their improvised twin guitar attack on the Australian public for some time now. They recently open for, and played in Guru Guru (Germany) on their Australian Tour and are currently looking forward to their debut release.

Grey Daturas' main Wah Wah axe master Bonnie Mercer and Brisbane sound artist Tom Hall have been dueling it out on an irregular basis these past months. Given the distance between these two artists when timing permits they unleash a collaboration worth documenting. Lets hope they finally do, at some point.

One man power electronics artist Mark Groves (White Horse, Collapsed Toilet Vietnam) has been creating seriously confronting noise for some time now. Every show is like a punch to the skull, totally uncompromising extreme noise through the aid of manipulated vocals, pedals and contact mics. Awesome!

Industrial, Goth, drone, noise, sound artist Marcus Cook is for the lack of a better work, a lord in the world of analogue technology, creating mind altering sonorous brutality.
