Bio

A four piece metal band from Tasmania, Australia who formed in 2006 by guitarist Felix Russell and drummer Ben Harbottle. Our music can only be described as ‘heavily influenced’. Mish-mashing styles from many artists to stamp our own brand of arm raising, head bang worthy metal. With brutal thrashing and ambient passages (that could possibly make you cry) combined with foot stomping hooks; we are Backlash. Going against the grain at our high school (Kingston High! Yeww!) we’ve kept true to what we eat, sleep and party to; metal. Told our style of music wasn’t ‘hip’ and we’d be far better off playing music everyone has heard a million times over. We said 'no' and been greatly awarded for this since the enthusiastic beginning. We've recieved a healthy amount of gigs around Hobart all of which we were warmly acknowledged. ‘Seeing Spheres’ our upcoming E.P is expected to be released by early August. It includes 6 tracks which we’ve used many times in order to devastate our audience, so if you’ve seen us or haven’t you might want to pay out $12 and get it, please.

Great beginning to lure you in. This is really tight, and classic metal. Excellent riffage, it sounds like you're having a ball. Tidy work with the fast solo's in the last third of the song too!
