Forming in 2007, SUMMONUS incorporate doom metal, sludge, stoner rock, crust punk and death metal. All these sounds have played a part in shaping their mountain-sized yet memorable sound. When it comes down to it, capturing the right feel and writing killer riffs and songs that stick in your head are what drives them. Having supported the likes of Mastodon and Baroness, SUMMONUS will be bringing their crushing live show to Sydney and Melbourne.
In just a few short years SHELLFIN have cemented themselves as one of Australia’s premier rock acts. Their latest album ‘Secondhand Family’ has “the kind of jams that make you want to go on a desert pilgrimage, all the while nodding your head off-time because you’re too stoned to keep to the beat.” SHELLFIN will be delivering their stoner rock sounds in Brisbane.
Underground thrash-sludge messiahs HIGH ON FIRE have set a new standard in doom metal.
Boasting apocalyptic riffage and gravel-gargling vocals, their latest opus, ‘De Vermis Mysteriis’ solidifies HIGH ON FIRE as one of the most important bands in metal today, Absolute Punk affirming, “…the band has burned the metal rulebook and forged a new archetype.”
It’s rare to encounter a band that combines this much brute force with such intelligence and expertly orchestrated songs. Equal parts molten metal and earthquake panic, HIGH ON FIRE’s punishing live show is descending upon Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne this September.
