Witches, wolves and cosmonauts…
Teaming up for this double headliner launch show are Australian sludge-metal outfit ‘The Black Swamp’ and hardcore groove act ‘Massic’.
This show marks the beginning of the touring cycle for TBS’s new release ‘Witches’. The EP is the recording debut of new vocalist Luke Hosking (Azreal), who slots in seamlessly with the band once again channelling the riff driven influences of Black Sabbath through to Crowbar. With anthem-like choruses and infectious grooves, this new offering and their established back catalogue will have heads nodding in The Zoo.
With their debut LP ‘Redshift’, ‘Massic’ has captured an honest, raw and abrasive sound, delivering 33 minutes of musical intensity, massive riffs and head-banging grooves. They’ve quickly built a reputation for their live performance, delivering their sound with as much conviction, passion and energy as physically and mentally possible. This will be on full display and then some as they continue their emergence into the Australian heavy music stratosphere.
This launch isn’t just the start of new musical escapades, it’s a rallying point for Flaming Wrekage and the Swamp, with the former celebrating 1 year since the release of their thrash-groove opus ‘From Flesh to Dust’. Brisbane is the first in a string of national shows under the banner of the ‘Witches & Wolves Tour’ seeing the quartet continue the campaign for ‘Flesh’. With many miles underfoot, the Wrekage crew certainly know how to incite a bangover wherever they roam. Prepare your necks for a ferocious thrashing!
Making their fitting debut at the Zoo is “Elephant” – a heavy metal band derived from members of hard rock riff-masters ‘The Flame Fields’. Excellent musicianship abounds in this herd; make sure to stampede in early and bear witness to the beginning of their mammoth-like riffage!
