If you were present at one of V.O.D's 10 Year Re-union shows, then you most certainly were at the best place possible at that time. Simply because, if you were not yet born in the year of 1982, then it is highly unlikey that you were old enough to witness a chapter in the forging of a South African metal scene - and this tour was your only opportuninty to travel through time and visit that special place in our metal history and legacy!
After a sterling performance at M4A's very own SummerFest'09 in January, it seemed only appropriate to get to know the band Moment Of Clarity just a little bit better. We also quizzed them about a few matters regarding the role of cross over metal in a sustainable metal scene.
In 2008, the Darkfiend made his first journey from Cape Town up into the South West of Africa. The country of destination: Namibia. Hundreds of thousands of people visit Namibia for a great many reasons. Not least of all, the fact that the country sports some of the worlds best game hunting ranches, breathtaking scenery that borders on surreal, or even just a getaway for people who really desire some space and an escape from civilzation! However, a small trickling of visitors make their way for a completely different reason - Heavy Metal!!!

We recently took the time to track down one of Southern Africa's more unique offerings.
