Nucleust are a metal band from Perth, Australia who strive to deliver what can be classified as heavy odd music comprising of unpredictable combinations of metal riffs and motives. Having been inspired by a diverse range of genres from Classical Music to Doom/Goth Metal, from Thrash to Death Metal, and from Jazz to Progressive Rock/Metal, Nucleust creates music, which is a reflection of what is happening in the real world through their own screaming critique, backed by a distinctive sound of extreme 7 & 6 string guitar riffs, massive crunchy bass sounds and groovy heavy drum patterns.
"Nucleust are a band that showcase a great and honest sound. It might be loud and abrasive at times, but it’s clearly on point" - Prog-Sphere
Since forming in 2013 the band have released 2 EP's - "Fractured Equilibrium" in 2014 and "Resistivity" in 2016 and a full length album "Terra Cerebral" in 2017, which have all received praise from fans and the media including extensive national radio play. The video for "Of King And Tree" received air time on Australia’s cult music show "Rage" with the track going on to the Western Australia 2016/2017 Heavy Metal song of the year award.
"‘Terra Cerebral’, is a truly great Australian metal record with all the right level of polish to make Nucleust a band to take note and appreciate in this great country of world conquering talent." - Overdrive Magazine
Nucleust are actively touring with shows all across Australia and internationally including Asia and Europe. Having shared the stage with many local bands, they have also supported internationally renowned acts such as Soilwork, Lacuna Coil, Voyager and Haken as well as having toured with the likes of Aussie prog heroes Twelve Foot Ninja and US death metal titans Six Feet Under.
Now in 2019, it is time to draw back the curtains on Nucleust’s brand new EP "I Am Ocean", slated for release on 1st of November. Created in the shadows over the last year in collaboration with Nick McLernon from successful Perth metal band “Make Them Suffer” taking the lead production and engineering role and Jeff Dunne (this band, this band, this band, etc) at the mixing and mastering helm, "I Am Ocean" sees Nucleust expanding their sonic universe and exploring new territory with their vicious metallic attack and soaring choruses.
