This years line up is packed with some of New South Wales finest acts including Acrolysis and Accidental President!!
Metal United Down Under Festival is an event founded by Aussie heavy music agency “Black-Roos Entertainment” shared between multiple cities/towns nation wide to bring the Australian heavy metal family together to celebrate this beautiful thing we all love so much “METAL” all on one night!!
In 2017, Konstantine Ana (vocals/guitar) would form a bandÂ AcrolysisÂ with like minded musicians Amit Bamay (drums) and Mytal Baba (bass). They used it as a medium to express their point of view both political and social. They combined 80s thrash metal with 90s grunge/alternative and punk to create an intense and extreme sound inspired by artists like Metallica, Soundgarden and Dead Kennedys. They hit the stages of pubs and clubs and their sound was defined by their heavy riffs, aggressive sound, quirky vocality and their distinct social awareness. In 2019, they released their debut EP Black Dogâ€™s Serenade, being an impressive first effort from the newcomers and putting their names out there. They would tap into the political zeitgeist and discuss themes of corrupt institutionalism and the influence of media.

Hard work and passion are the backbones of a successful band andÂ Accidental PresidentÂ fits the bill perfectly. Originally formed in 2015, the group has gone through a long, hard road of â€˜Spinal Tap-esqeâ€™ lineup changes and life events that caused a lot of pitfalls in their development. Their passion never slowed though andÂ Accidental PresidentÂ used these challenges as motivation to build something spectacular that is now ready for the world to hear.
The Sydney, Australia based band has formed their own brand of hard rock mixed heavily with goth and metal influences. Adding to their intrigue and performance,Â Accidental PresidentÂ throws in a theatrical flair to grab all of your senses.Â
