LORD is one of Australia’s highest profile heavy melodic bands, touring both nationally and internationally with artists such as Queensryche, Iced Earth, Nightwish, Saxon, Nevermore, Gamma Ray, former Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Dianno and many more, as well as their own headlining tours and international festival appearances. LORD recently released “THE DUNGEON ERA” box set, full of rare recordings and photos, and all four official DUNGEON albums re-recorded by the current LORD band, further uniting both eras.
DARKER HALF is a melodic metal band from Sydney Australia.Their sound is rooted in traditional metal while drawing on many other influences both metal and otherwise to create a unique, energetic and heavy sound. Twisted dual guitars and explosive solos laid across a rock solid yet inventive rhythm section, topped off by a vocalist whose range can match any of rock's greats, making this a band who can really set themselves apart. DARKER HALF recently released their third album, titled "NEVER SURRENDER", which was followed by a US tour.
SILENT KNIGHT; Perth’s traditional power metal experts have been climbing the ranks of Australia’s metal scene since forming in 2011.Mixing the melody and finesse of legendary European bands such as Helloween, Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, Stormwarrior and Iron Maiden with the aggressive speed of their US counterparts in Iced Earth and Megadeth, Silent Knight are breathing new life into a stagnant and saturated genre.
HARLOTT playing their second LEGIONS OF STEEL festival. They recently released their second album "Proliferation" and have been invited to tour Europe with Annihilator by Jeff Waters himself! Relentless Thrash Metal like no other!
HIDDEN INTENT are a three piece thrash metal titan from Adelaide, South Australia. Punters have often described HIDDEN INTENT's live shows as 'Good time thrash', 'energetic', 'amusing crowd interaction' and a sound reminiscence of Testament, Sacred Reich, Annihilator, King Diamond and Slayer. Their debut album "WALKING THROUGH HELL" is a goldmine of Australian thrash metal!
ENVENOMED are a melodic force of heavy metal to be reckoned with. Influenced by the melodic and heavy stylings of Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Metallica, Testament & Iced Earth to name a few; their debut album EVIL UNSEEN has been well-received by many, and has made appearances on numerous 'Top 10 albums of 2014' lists.
STEELSWARM are a force of high-energy hair-flailing, head-banging destruction. These titans from Sydney can 100% guarantee fast, catchy and addictive music that sticks to your brain like a tattoo!
LADY CRIMSON are a three piece rock outfit, from Tasmania. Addicted to ripping guitar riffs and high powered vocals. Though heavily inspired by rock and metal bands of the 80’s and early 90’s, LADY CRIMSON do not find themselves slotting into just one genre.
The band prides themselves on high energy shows that entertain from start to finish without compromising the quality of their music.
DEMONHEAD spawned in early 2007 from a mutual love of metal and hard & heavy rock, with members from 'Eye of the Enemy' and 'Envenomed'. DEMONHEAD are ready to tear the roof off!! Widely known for their energetic, infectious and sometimes chaotic live shows, they will leave you with a grin on your face and a nasty hangover the next day.
ESPIONAGE are the up and coming melodic speedsters who are taking the Australian metal scene by the balls with their high-soaring vocals and twin guitar harmonies. They played their live debut at 2014's LEGIONS OF STEEL festival and have since then gained a very loyal following and are releasing their debut EP in 2015.
