ELECTRIC MARY - Shock Records/Big Records

Electric Mary are Australia's last great hope for the title of 'Killer Blues-ish Hard Rock Band'. They carry on a lineage which began with the melding of blues structures to rock energy in the late '60s and early '70s and which has continued through artists like Whitesnake, Badlands, Mr. Big and Richie Kotzen. Soulful vocals, monster grooves that the dudes can headbang to and the chicks can dance to (or vice versa, really), and killer guitar work.


BURIED IN VERONA - Capitol Records/UNFD

Buried In Verona
Buried In Verona

Hailing from Sydney, Australia, metalcore band Buried in Verona draw from all corners of the modern metal world to create their intense and emotional sound. With nods to the shuddering guitars and violent imagery of deathcore, post-hardcore's soaring clean choruses, electronicore's production flourishes, and straight-ahead metalcore's riff-driven intensity, the band pulls these elements together into a sound that feels surprisingly substantial given its breadth of influences. While the band has gone through quite a few lineup changes since forming in 2007, Buried in Verona have consistently approached their form as ambassadors of aggression, bringing heaviness everywhere they go. Buried in Verona made their debut in 2008 with Circle the Dead, following up with Saturday Night Sever in 2010. Their third album, Notorious, arrived on Artery Records in 2012 and reached number 20 on the ARIA chart. Faceless, recorded in Michigan with Joey Sturgis (the Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, blessthefall), was released in 2014 and debuted at number 15. It was longlisted for the tenth Australian Music Prize (AMP).

ALPHA WOLF - Greyscale Records/Cooking Vinyl

The beginnings of any band will start with a teething period that can last for a few releases, but after dropping their latest single “Nail Biter” which has clocked up over 40,000 views on YouTube & pushing past 25,000 streams on Spotify, and now with the release of #104, it’s safe to say Alpha Wolf’s teething period has come to an end. The Melbourne 5 piece has worked tirelessly to create something inherently familiar, yet at the same time unashamedly different. Taking the heavy riffs of their downbeat and deathcore contemporaries, mixing that with the groove of the current wave of nu-metal bands, and adding a melody that completely their own; Alpha Wolf are carving out their own place in the Australian heavy scene.

The band is also the latest addition to the roster of Greyscale Records. Label Manager Joshua Merriel states on the signing “It takes a special kind of band to make a collision of genres sound so seamless, but Alpha Wolf have managed to do just that. We’re so excited to see what the future holds for Alpha Wolf, and honoured to be a part of it.” Sentiments echoed by Sabian Lynch of Alpha Wolf “Signing to Greyscale has been one of those defining moments in our musical careers that we couldn’t have dreamed of happening this time last year or ever. Having people such as Ash and Josh backing our music is the greatest feeling and we are very excited for our future teamed with Greyscale.”

Dreadnaught

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.
