If you’re unfamiliar with who Requiem are, then these guys just might be one of the best bands you’ve never heard of, especially if you’re an avid support of localised Australian Metal. These guys aren’t just making waves within the Australian Metal scene, yet tsunami-sized buzz that has brought them quite the amount of attention, especially recently. For those who are unfamiliar, Requiem consists of band members Zacharie Dunks (guitar/vocals), Aaryn Dunks (Drums), Jye Mathews (secondary guitar), and Tom Hainsworth (bass).
Their recent album, ‘And The Earth Grew Dark’ (from a personal standpoint) is one of the strongest Australian Metal albums to hit shelves so far in 2018, and if you haven’t listened to it yet you’re not doing yourself any favours. (You can catch our review of the album HERE!) We also recently had the opportunity to speak to front man Dunks, who gave us insight into the aforementioned album, as well as the band’s stance on the Australian Metal scene, their recording/producing processes, and just life as a band in general. (You can catch our interview with Dunks HERE!)
If you’re a fan and are dying to see these blokes perform live again, we’ve got some great news! If you’re on the other side of the fence and haven’t heard of these guys before, this provides the perfect opportunity for you to go and check them out for yourselves, because their music speaks volumes!
Melbourne’s prestigious heavy metal festival “Legions of Steel” is celebrating its fifth year in 2018, and is promising to be the biggest and best incarnation yet! Better yet, Requiem are amidst a bill featuring Orpheus Omega, Dreadnaught, Eyefear, Elm Street, Harlott, Pegazus, Espionage, Envenomed, Asylum (QLD), and Lethal Vendetta (NSW). What a huge line up! Better yet, due to the sold out events in previous years, they’re relocating this year to Max Watts, with further promises to blow the roof off the joint (and boasting the line-up that it has, I don’t doubt that statement whatsoever!) As an added bonus, they’re even going to have roaming cameras recording a DVD (that can be purchased at a later date) to commemorate the occasion. If this doesn’t have you pumped up for home grown Metal, then I don’t know what will!
Get around it, Australia! Don’t miss out on catching Requiem in action! Tickets are on sale now and are available here:
