With only two games left before the final, it seems that someone from the Southern hemisphere is going to be crowned Rugby World Champions. Let’s find out who it’s going to be (hopefully not the Aussies!)
SEMI FINAL 1: SOUTH AFRICA vs NEW ZEALAND
SINDULGENCE vs ARC OF ASCENT
Sindulgence are an experimental metal act from Cape Town, S.A. Their music ranges from a variety of old-school Heavy Metal influences to more modern technical acts; imagine a combination of Metallica, Mastodon, Maiden, S.O.A.D and you’re got an idea of how Sindulgence sound. Not sure why they class themselves as ‘experimental’, sounds like good old fashioned metal to me and that’s alright by me.
Hamilton natives Arc of Ascent combine great vocals, meaty-heavy riffs and some blistering solos to bring you a glorious stoner/doom noise that will move you and groove you.
PREDICTION: South Africa broke Welsh hearts with their last minute try in the quarter finals but I think beating the All Blacks will be a much sterner ask for the Springboks. Tournament favourites New Zealand will have as much difficulty dispatching South Africa as they did France ie: not much. The All Blacks for the win.
And it’s a Kiwi double as the stoner doom bliss from Arc of Ascent blows Sindulgence off course and into the jaws of defeat.
