Grand masters of Australian Nu-Metal Superheist are about to drop their brand new album like a ten ton hammer out of nowhere!
Produced and mixed by the band’s founding father dw Norton at Black Mountain Sound Studio, ‘Sidewinder’ is a 9 songs offering bound to prove Superheist is once again a force to be reckoned with.
DW Norton says of the new album “This time we have turned all the elements that make the Superheist sound right up to 11, It’s more metal, more anthemic, more hip hop and more electro than we’ve ever been. The riffs are so big, fat and bouncy it makes me chuckle”
With legendary frontman Ezekiel Ox in career best form and International Man of Metal John Sankey behind the kit, Superheist have found themselves a new world in which to turn everything up to 11… make that 12!
First single The Riot showcases the massive riff power of Sidewinder.
Track 3 Overlord epitomises the bands signature anthemic melody. Track 5 Breathe lulls the listener into and a false sense of security before exploding into the huge emotive choruses and epically heavy down tuned riffage. Track 7 …And So We Burn features guest vocals Dana Roskvist of the once mighty Sydonia! Ezekiel Ox takes a back seat adding backing vocals to Dana’s incredible lead vocal on this the departure track of the album.
Album closer, Track 9 God Knows has lead vocalist Ezekiel Ox spitting vengeance over Cardinal George Pell as John Sankey pummels down Slayer like punk metal beats under face melting walls of guitar.
‘Sidewinder’ is a defining moment for the second coming Superheist. ‘Sidewinder’ will be released through Black Mountain Music, a new label venture developed by Heist members dw Norton & John Sankey.
