Bio

What do you get when you cross face melting brutality and 80s/90s Cartoon & Movie references? SNAKE MOUNTAIN!

Featuring personnel from such luminaries as Shifting The Paradigm, Eternal Torment, Helm, The Point 0 Five and The Silencio, Snake Mountain cross heavy grooves, blast beats and atmospheric melodies to create a sound that is their own.

2017 saw a new beginning for the band, shedding their masked stage personas, gearing up with a second guitarist and adopting a heavier, darker sound.
Snake Mountain entered Core studios on the Gold Coast in late 2017 to record their single ‘The Burden’ with highly respected producer Nik Carpenter and previous bass-player Rory Swane (Ex-Helm) and founding member guitarist Dan Maynard, who left the group in late 2018 to focus on interests outside of music.
Most of 2019 saw Snake Mountain hard at work behind the scenes writing new material and recruiting second guitarist Jamie Cotton, who’s energy and experience has added a new level to their sound and direction.
The band recently released their new single ‘The Hunted’ on September 10th ahead of their appearance at the Wallapalooza Festival on September 14.
Recorded by Zieben Brady and co-written by founding member Dan Maynard, the bands latest offering is their heaviest yet and lyrically takes influence from the 80’s action gorefest Predator, celebrating the monstrous extraterrestrial man hunter behind the Schwarzenegger classic.

Snake Mountain are also set to open for Solo guitarist/ex-Megadeth shredder Marty Friedman in Brisbane on December 12th at Crowbar and will be releasing more new material in early 2020.

Thrashy and riffy death, perfect for sweating into a denim vest, with enough contemporary hooks you'll also scuff your Yeezy's
