Music Scene with Glenn Haworth

Next month Dicey Rileys will be transformed into a “fantasy realm” as local band Saralisse take to the stage alongside fellow fantasy/folk metal bands Beast Impalor (Canberra) and Stone Sovereign (Orange).

The show is part of a series of shows known as Saralisse vs Beast Impalor where the bands aim to appeal to both metal heads and fans of sci-fi/fantasy culture.

"We both have been on the live music scene for a similar amount of time and follow similar themes so this was a unique way of having a sort of co-headline show," said Saralisse drummer Karl French.

"We each take turns at headlining these ‘fight shows’ and it’s been really funny some of the on-stage banter the bands come up with.”

Despite all the banter, the on-stage jokes are purely for show and both bands are great mates having played many shows together recently.

Saralisse have spent the last few years touring Australia taking their unique sounds and exciting live show from coast to coast. The band performs in full costume and brings the stories of the fantasy realm of Akrylla to life through song.

To see Saralisse live with Beast Impalor and Stone Sovereign be at Dicey Rileys on Friday, July 21. The show starts at 8:30pm with free entry.
