Area-7 are a seminal Australian Ska/Punk band. Formed in 1994 they have released eight major releases including Road Rage, No Logic!, Bitter & Twisted, Say It To My Face and Torn Apart. Highlights include their Gold albums, their ARIA nomination for Best Rock Album in 2000, their significant success on the Australian touring circuit, and that time they sang about being angry kids when they were all well into their 30s.
Azreal are a well extablished fixture in the Gold Coast metal scene - in fact some would go as far as to say that Azreal ARE the Gold Coast metak scene. Having dominated stages throughout Australia over the last 10 years, 2017 saw the band embarking on their first USA Tour, supporting Devildriver. Their latest album Premonition is literally an audio buffet of choice tracks, especially if you are a fan of bands like Lamb of God, Sepultura and Rob Zombie.
Aptly named, the only word to describe this group is smokin’. Like the smoldering heat from a well-tended fire, the eclectic rock punk outfit known as Smoking Martha has the intensity to scorch your best shirt but the discretion to spare your eyebrows. Smoking Martha have landed multiple international and national supports with Seether, Uriah Heap, Everclear, Dallas Frasca, Electric Mary and most recently with the Original Cherry bomb herself “Cherie Currie” from The Runaways.
These Four Walls have been Gold Coast locals for the last 4 years, but their history goes back even further, having formed over 10 years ago in Auckland, NZ. The band has previously released two full length albums, and in 2017 released their first new single since relocating to Australia, entitled Bravery. They're no strangers to the stage either, having supported bands such as Disturbed, Trivium and Trapt as well as Aussie legends Karnivool and Dead Letter Circus.
old Coast alternative/rock outfit Mass Sky Raid formed in 2011, releasing their debut EP ‘Courage Under Fire’ mid 2013, securing physical distribution to Australian retailers via MGM. Off the back of receiving strong media reviews – including a 4.5 out of 5 star rating in rock bible Blunt Magazine – Mass Sky Raid secured support slots with high profile Australian bands including Dead Letter Circus and Twelve Foot Ninja as well as UK exports I Am Giant. Their latest single 'Closer' is receiving critical acclaim.
For the love of the riff, The Black Swamp have re-hashed a sludge sound reminiscent of the 70's and 90's before heavy metal got all dicky about the genre divides. Live is where TBS thrives, throwing out grooves made for nodding heads and emptying beers. In 2016, The Black Swamp released their first full length, 'I Am'. The album was noted to have a rounder soundscape than 2014's EP 'Foulness'. If the power of the riff compels you, then The Black Swamp probably will too.
Formed in 2009, Flaming Wrekage have proven themselves to be a driving force in the Aussie metal scene. Their debut album, the guitar-heavy Catharsis (2013) was met with favourable reviews and saw them touring solidly up and down the east coast. in early 2017 they released their second album, entitled From Flesh To Dust, and again hit the road, touring both Australia and Indonesia in support of the new record. These boys are definitely ones to watch in 2017.
It is the rare band who can stand the test of time to truly say that they have the staying power that The Wrath do. 13 years in the Business and they are still provoking mayhem everywhere they tread. They are the mainstays of Australian punk/rock. Beginning their journey in hazier days of the Australian music scene in 2003, they have covered the Australian map and have stapled their turf in every town. In 2016, the band released their latest single "Blood On Your Hands".
Chelsea Rockwells are a 3-piece rock outfit from the Gold Coast, Australia. Their riff-driven, alternative-rock sound is a result of their eclectic musical influences and tastes. Their sound has elements of alternative and grunge, but essentially it’s hard rock with a melodic onslaught of vocal tones from their front man and bass player Jay Vincent. Sean Dalton on drums and guitarist Nathan Mills round out this powerhouse 3 piece.
