Bio

Kettlespider /lebete araneae/ (noun) 1. A majestic and sometimes terrifying 5-legged beast native to Melbourne. Regularly spawns prog rock masterpieces.

Damon Hughes - Triple J.

Kettlespider's sound provides a fresh, upbeat take on 1970’s progressive rock, but with a modern post-metal punch.

The quintet made their mark in 2012 with the release of the independently released debut album, "Avadante", which has received critical acclaim in publications such as Classic Rock's "PROG" magazine and HeavyBlogIsHeavy.

The band are currently undertaking a new project called "Building a Spider". The band will release a new song, or "leg" of the spider, each month from March until October, 2016.

Interesting, progressive stuff with plenty of drama sewn into it.

An exciting new sound for the spiders. Pleased to see they've blown off the cobwebs in fine style
