Advertising bill for the 2008 event




Venue (s)


Metalstock was an open-air metal festival established in 2005. It played across the Easter Weekend and was held on a farm near Scone, NSW. The organiser and promoter was Dalkhu Records for the first three events; Soundworks Touring assisted them in 2008.

The inaugural event in 2005 was reasonably low-key and featured mainly bands from Sydney and Newcastle. In 2006 the bill was extended to 40 bands including Germany's Profanation. The following year's event featured Mortal Sin and Dubai band Nervecell as headliners but diminshed attendances threatened the future of the festival. For the 2008 event, the organisers decided on a smaller, indoors affair at the Manning Bar at Sydney Uni. Canadian death metal band Kataklysm were the headlining act. The event has not been held since.
