Based in Melbourne, Armoured Earth are a 5 piece outfit who simply love to write good, strong, hard hitting yet still catchy & original heavy metal. Influences within the band stem as far and wide as Sepultura, Metallica, Mastodon, Opeth, Lamb of God, Karnivool and Soilwork, just to name a few. With a strong focus around continuous improvement of what is already a killer live show, the overall Armoured Earth sound lends itself to thumping grooves, vocals from hell and ripping guitars added with good melodic flavour. In 2012, the lads premiered their live show at the infamous Pony Club in Melbourne and continued on to play various venues around town including Club DV8, The Prague bar and even venturing out to rural Victoria. Receiving volcanic crowd responses everywhere they go, the band has shared the stage with the likes of Synthetic Breed and Alpine Fault. When they weren’t ripping down stages and venues, the boys kept themselves busy, legging it down the road to the Melodic Productions Studio in Geelong to record their debut EP, ‘Your Own Hell’, in which songs from it had stints in the top 10 triple j unearthed metal charts. The opening track, ‘Hope it Hurts’ also made it onto the Hardcore compilation album comprised by Welkin Entertainment, ‘The time is now’. There’s no smoke and mirrors in this band, just 5 blokes who love ripping faces off with their own style of Heavy Metal in today’s world. After the launch of their debut EP in early 2013, all roads lead to hell so jump on the Armoured Earth train and let’s tear this planet a new one!
