Starvation

#1 Starvation was a hardcore punk band from Požega, Croatia, active trough the 2000's, they participated in the cult "Crust is dead" 4-way split tape with Dislike, Fight Back and Apatdridi. they also played a large number of shows #2 Starvation is some of the bleakest music to come from the US East Coast in recent times. Maybe it's being surrounded constantly by drooling yuppies or self-conscious, ironic hipsters that created the need for Starvation. Whatever it is, there's something in the air in Connecticut that makes all this doom and gloom as natural as taking a big honking dump.

From http://www.myspace.com/nunchukkasuperfly NUNCHUKKA SUPERFLY ARE ALIVE AND WELL IN SYDNEY!!! Unless you've been living in a cave for the last twenty years you would have heard of THE HARD-ONS: yes, the Hard-ons, that legendary multi-racial punk band that lay waste to all and sundry before them with their "Motorhead meets Beach Boys" death-pop sonic assault, and that continues to this day, to leave foot prints on the top of your skull with their violent yet well-meaning aural attack.

Pelican

Formed by previous members of the band Tusk, the instrumental post-metal outfit Pelican formed in Chicago in 2001, by guitarists Trevor de Brauw and Laurent Lebec with sibling rhythm section Larry Herweg and Bryan Herweg (drums and bass, respectively). Owing a great debt to the pioneering band Neurosis, and often compared to Boston's Isis and Sweden's Cult of Luna, Pelican were initially signed to Hydra Head Records (whose founder, Aaron Turner, was a member of Isis).

Clagg

Through a seven year history, Clagg have endured enormous challenges to emerge as one of Australia's leading doom and sludge bands. Building their sound upon a foundry of monstrous guitar riffs, a bludgeoning rhythm section and demonic vocals, Clagg have been persistent in spreading their evil word amid many setbacks. Following multiple line-up changes, Clagg are now at their most cohesive and crushing.
