Steel Assassins 2017


Steel Assassins Sydneys only 2 day metal festival is back for its 6th instalment at The Bald Faced Stag

First band announced is NZ Speed?Thrash band Stalker

The band has already created a massive buzz in their short existence with their 3 track demo tape “Satanic Panic” selling out worldwide alsmost immediately. Channelling the spirit of classic 80’s Speed Metal this is the sound of EXCITER, RAVEN, TANK and MOTORHEAD continued on with the feel and passion of a young band proudly flying the flag. 2017 will be owned by STALKER and we are very proud to host their first ever Australian show!! True as Metal gets. \m/


Next up on the bill is Adelaide thrash 3 piece outfit Hidden Intent 

Forging a path of moshpit madness over the last few years that have seen them take to all parts of Australia as well as selected shows through Asia this is one band that shows no signs of slowing down. Already in the works for 2017 is a national tour supporting the mighty NUCLEAR ASSAULT and then a run of European dates with LICH KING. We are very lucky to have HIDDEN INTENT free up time in November to be part of Steel Assassins with what will no doubt be a set to make your bones rattle. \m/


another week another line up announcement this week sees NSW metallers Friar Rush join a rapidly growing amazing line up:
FRIAR RUSH (nsw) are the 3rd band to jump in the Steel Assassins 2017 boat. We are treated to a rare showing from one of not only our favourites but one of Sydney’s absolute class Melodic Metal bands. It will be their first show in 2 years! The future of FRIAR RUSH is unknown and for a while now laid dormant so this is not just your only chance to see this killer band in 2017 but possibly for the last time. Those who saw their set at SA 2014 will attest to the power the band still holds and they were one member down that night! We are honoured that they are coming back out of the darkness and set to deliver another monster show exclusively for Steel Assassins. \m/

Melbourne`s Bengal Tigers join a growing line up

Melbourne’s BENGAL TIGERS are part of Australian Heavy Metal history. Forging their own brand of Steel in the hey day of the genre they were Australia’s answer to JUDAS PRIEST or ACCEPT. Many years later and the guys are still kicking it as hard as ever. They are proudly our 4th band confirmed for SA 2017. Last seen here back in 2014, this will be their only Sydney appearance of the year. Feels good to have them back. It’s time to break and bend. \m/

First headline act announced and its a great addition to a already amazing line up


Trad Metallers WIDOW(usa) are the 5th band confirmed for Steel Assassins 2017 and our first headliner. 4 years ago the guys put on an amazing show in one of the most memorable sets in our history. Also they walked away from the weekend with not only a stack of new fans but friends too!! WIDOW is incredibly eager to return and showcase material off their new album ‘Carved In Stone” and we are honored to have them for a headlining set this time so you can get even more WIDOW for your buck! For fans of Melodic traditional Heavy Metal such as RAVEN, SAXON, CAULDRON and SKULL FIST. This will be a mighty moment we cannot all wait for when WIDOW return again to ‘Take Hold Of The Night”. \m/
