Assembled from the scrap-heap of several prolific Australian metal bands, The Schoenberg Automaton are a mouthful and an earful of mind-bending technical death metal. With a sound that’s unmistakeable yet hard to pin down, TSA made their presence known with a debut EP in 2011 that turned a lot of heads and set tongues wagging for a full-length. Their eagerly-anticipated LP—Vela—is due early 2013 and TSA hope to keep turning heads until they twist right off with an album full of pulsating, devastating and original compositions.
