Metal of Honor presented Southside Of Hell, a collection of live metal bands from Brisbane, supporting Black Rheno from Sydney on their National Tour.

You may have noticed that both Digi-mags are a day later than usual this week for which I apologise. It turns out riding a motorcycle at 11 pm with a flannelette shirt on is not conducive to your health but that won’t stop me in the future!!!
