Event Description

Aquilus + Mondernte (Isl/deu)


An evening of atmospheric darkness descends upon Northcote Social Club for this exclusive and unmissable performances for fans of all soundscapes pertaining to classically composed heaviness, brooding melodies and beyond black metal.

Hot off the release of their new album the classical infused masterpiece Bellum II, Melbourne's Aquilus have come together to announce a rare live performance and headliner show with an official album launch to commemorate this special occasion. 

All the way from the land of fire and ice is very special guest, Iceland's solo artist Mondernte bringing her Satanic energy to Australia for the first time to display her captivating Aural Luciferian Witchcraft to the masses.

Supporting these two special and rare Australian performances is local the dark and gloomy vibes from darkwave/industrial Irreparable and post-black metal newcomers Requite.

To continue this vibe into the early hours, DJ Slaytanix will be spinning all your favourite extreme and dark metal music to welcome the weekend after this phenomenal show.



Aquilus’s distinctive live shows have captivated audiences around Australia, with moving violin playing entwined with keyboards, and ethereal metal dissonance.

Primarily a one man project composed/produced by Horace Rosenqvist, it also features the addition of session musicians, and has a full 6 member live band with Zebadee Scott (Drums), Hayley “Stringy Paddler” Anderson (Violin), Sara Orania (Keyboard), Mortimer Bellchambers (Guitar), and Daniel “Pip” Green (Bass).


Mondernte (Iceland/Germany)

Founded in Germany in 2019, MONDERNTE is a one-person satanic musical entity based in Reykjavík, Iceland. Her music oscillates between black metal, dark folk, occult rock and dark ambient, while deliberately dissolving genre boundaries in the name of “Aural Luciferian Witchcraft”.

So far, MONDERNTE (German for “Moon Harvest”) has self-released three cassettes in true DIY fashion, as well two splits through the Swiss underground label Hexenkult and the German label AbArt Corruption.

MONDERNTE started performing her musical offerings on stage in 2022, most notably at the Icelandic metal festivals Norðanpaunk, Andkristni and Doomcember, as well as in Switzerland and soon Germany and Australia.



IRREPARABLE formed in 2019 and began to forge an experimental and emotionally expressive musical form mixing black metal with goth/darkwave and industrial/ambient.
With themes of loss and disillusionment, the band self-released their debut EP digitally in late 2019 called Transfixion (later released on CD by Narcoleptica Productions) just before the worldwide pandemic hit in 2020.

The band managed to play their debut live show in 2021 supporting US dark folk legend King Dude in between lockdowns and spent the downtime crafting what would be their 2nd EP Complete Emptiness released May 2023 by the band on CD, and by the Italian label These Hands Melt on vinyl. Complete Emptiness further explores themes of loss, cyclical suffering and emptiness and was officially launched when the band supported US goth rockers Unto Others at the Melbourne leg of their Australian tour.
Since then, while working on their debut full-length album, the band have played a few select shows including Adelaide and Sydney (supporting the infamous Lord Kaos).



Melbourne's up and coming black metal band focusing on post-black metal’s soundscape, making their own sound with a haunting blend of intensely blackened melodies and unapologetically raw emotions.

Bringing hard-hitting live shows expressing despair and misery with their bleak lyrical content. Requite brings a cathartic experience, offering a chance to confront and process the depressing aspects of existence through their live sets.

Since the release of their debut self-titled EP in June 2023 to local acclaim, Requite has been supporting Melbourne and Canberra’s renowned acts gaining a reputation for bringing an early crowd and creating the dark tone to kick off an evening of extreme metal riffage.


DJ Slaytanix
