Dreadnaught

Dreadnaught is a heavy metal band from Melbourne, Australia. The group was formed out of the remnants of some Tasmanian bands including Fridge from Launceston who recorded an album in 1994.

The band recorded a single titled "Flowers" in 1995 that was released on cassette by Melbourne label Subversive. The following year the full-length album Body.Blood.Skin.Mind saw release on Deported. This album displayed a combination of dark, introspective rock and melodic, progressive thrash metal.

 


ANNIHILIST- Shock Records/ Truth Ink R.M.T

Annihilist are a metal band from Melbourne, Australia. Their debut EP ‘Vol. 1’, released in Nov 2015, blurs the lines between European melodic death metal and the new wave of American heavy metal all tied together with a progressive style of songwriting. Live performances are a vital aspect to Annihilist, the overly charismatic VSA student Harry Pendock always turning heads at shows with his amazing vocal abilities and theatrical behaviour, adding a much needed element of fun to what is all too often perceived as a serious genre.

Guitarist’s Miki Simankevicius and Josh Voce both impress audiences with their technical prowess, Miki with the fast Alexi Laiho esque shredding solos and Josh’s style focusing more on bends and vibrato. Bassist Toby Peterson–Stewart proves his abilities with technical sweeps and melodic flourishes complementing every guitar part on ‘Vol. 1’. Whilst James Sayers drumming is nothing short of incredible, his razor-sharp sense of rhythm and twelve-arm sounding drum fills create the foundation of the Annihilist sound.

Two music videos for ‘Vol. 1’, ‘Solace In Suffering’ and ‘Embers’ have so far been released, both shot and directed by Annihilist’s own guitarist Miki Simankevicius. The videos are a glimpse into the bands live show in a desolate setting of swamps and decayed flora. The last 18 months have seen Annihilist perform all over Victoria alongside some of Australia’s elite metal acts including Hollow World, Boris The Blade, Chronolyth, Whoretopsy, The Hazard Circular and Ruins. The next 18 months for Annihilist include further shows interstate with plans for a second release in 2017 and hopes to take their music overseas.

Dukes of Windsor

Dukes of Windsor are a Berlin-based Australian Electro/Rock group.

Dukes of Windsor were an Australian electronic rock group. Although formed in Melbourne, Australia, they were based in Berlin, Germany. They are notable for their single "It's a War", released in Australia in 2008 and in Europe in early 2010, as well as their song "The Others", remixed by Australian electronic group TV Rock. They "fuse minimalist rhythms, punchy bass-lines, cascading guitar riffs, and glacial synths". Their music has been described as "angular and reductive, groovy and melodic", and has been termed the beautiful paradox of "robotic soul".

The Dukes of Windsor are an amazing Melbourne band with their career now spending more than a decade. There career began with the release of the EP Foxhunt in 2005. Debut album The Others followed in 2006, produced in Melbourne by expatriate American Jonathan Burnside (Faith No More, Nirvana). Extra production, mixing and mastering were provided by hardcore producers Pelle Henricsson and Eskil Lövström (Refused - The Shape of Punk to Come, Poison the Well, Hell Is for Heroes) from Tonteknik Studios in Umea, Sweden. After the release of the album, the band embarked on an intensive schedule of touring around Australia. After extensive national radio play, they were showcased as a Next Crop Artist by national broadcaster Triple J in November 2006.
In 2007, the remix of their debut single "The Others" was certified Gold in Australia (50,000 copies), was a top 10 ARIA single, spent three months at #1 on the ARIA Club Chart, and received an ARIA Award nomination. The guys also closed out the MTV Australian Music Video Awards ceremony in Sydney that year.
Second album Minus was released through Island Records in Australia in late 2008. To record the album, the band reunited with Pelle and Eskil, travelling to Tonteknik Studios in the Swedish winter. The album's title both represents these sub-zero temperatures, as well as the fresh clinical approach to the album. The stark sound is balanced with warm synth textures and vocals.
After the release of Minus, the band took in a string of sell-out gigs in capital cities, as well as completing dates nationally with Sneaky Sound System, Sam Sparro, The Music and The Vines. The band also featured heavily on Australian national broadcaster Triple J, with two Number One Most Played songs, and television performances on both Rove Live("It's a War") and The Footy Show ("Get It"). Three singles were released from Minus, including "It's a War", "Get It" (both 2008), and "Runaway" (2009). The video clip for "Runaway" was also featured as a Ripe Clip of the Week on national music television channel Channel [V].
In December 2009 the band relocated to Berlin, Germany to continue writing their third full-length album. After signing a management and joint venture deal with local indie label Motor Music, they also released the album It's a War, an album of selected songs from both Minus and The Others. Since then, they are preparing to self-produce their next full-length album.
The Dukes of Windsor still have a religious cult following and perform regular around Australia and Europe.

Thousand Needles in Red
Thousand Needles in Red

Thousand Needles In Red are a band in one of those unusual positions – which do occur occasionally, but are far from the norm – where the members are based in completely different cities and states.

It means that their activities are just a little different to that of most bands. “’Cos Clint’s in Brisbane, and the rest of the band’s in Sydney,” Tristan expands, “everything we’ve done from day one has been very strategic. Like, the songs for our EP were basically written in a weekend when Clint came down. When we’re together, has to be game on, because we don’t have time to muck around. So when Clint’s down we gotta work, it’s like ‘let’s put in, eight hours, just to start off with.’ We’ve just gotta go for it.
