    ...and because they're from STORMERS territory, they are only welcome in an area known by locals as "The Vuil"... Check out Cape Town metal legends MIND ASSAULT as they thrash it out with top bands from Gauteng at ROCKABILLYS in EDENVALE. This is a class act line-up featuring a back to back of Jozi's top respected bands AGRO + SACRIFIST along the melodic-folk-death outfit from Secunda, RIDDARE AV KODEN. Also, raising their head again after some time down under, make way for the return of TRANQUIL \m/ If you're into the old-school, sing-a-long, raise your beer tankard Melodic and Death Metal vibes, with a side-dose of thrash, you can't actually ask for a better line-up than that! Live music starts at 20:00 Entrance at door is R40 A percentage of all proceeds go to charity... the starving and thirsty members of SA Metal Bands. Especially the ones who travelled 1500km to make your Friday night worth it's title \m/ MIND ASSAULT are eager to party with their old buddies from the bands listed above, and to have an opportunity to make new friends, so come and show the Cape Town boys a spot of good old "Vuil" hospitality. Bring some rotten tomatoes or something... If you have not yet been introduced to Mind Assault, get the FREE DOWNLOAD of their 2011 release "METAL RITES" available on www.mindassault.com or www.subterania.co.za (and hardcopy + T-shirts for sale at gigs, for petrol money back home)
