Hidden Intent
Hidden Intent
Like the riotous music they play, since their inception in 2011, Adelaide-based thrash metal three-piece HIDDEN INTENT have been carving their way through the masses with their unabashedly unapologetic ‘80s-throwback thrash metal, a form of music that wholly embraces its American and European roots in the Bay Area, Scandinavian and Teutonic thrash scenes. Being lauded for their “energetic” live show and the “party thrash” they play for their audience, the Adelaide trio have continued to build their name well into the now.

With lead vocalist/bassist Chris McEwen (ex-Abyzmal, ex-Obsidian Aspect) at the helm, and the lead guitars of riff-lord and backing vocalist Phil Bennett (ex-Desert Eagle/TKBF), the trio is completed with the more recent addition of Paul Lewis (Hawkai, ex-Death Boundaries, Tidal) on drums.

Entering into 2016, Hidden Intent ride off the back of such accomplishments as releasing their first full-length album, ‘Walking Through Hell’, through Punishment 18 Records (Italy); supporting Danish thrash metal icons Artillery for their ‘Made in China’ 11-date tour in April/May 2015; being chosen as the Adelaide support last year for German power metal legends, Helloween; playing large festivals in both Australia and abroad, including The New Dead Metalfest, headlining the Bangkok Thrash Festival in Thailand, and Perth’s Metal Down-Under; as well as many more. This year has already seen the band release their new single, “Addicted To Thrash” mastered by American record producer, mixer, guitarist and songwriter, Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Municipal Waste, Queensrÿche, Revocation), and will see the trio further release another much anticipated new single and second full-length album early 2017.

2017 is the year of thrash!
Suppressive Fire
Suppressive Fire
Suppressive Fire begun their all out attack on the southeastern metal scene in 2014 and have refused to let up their assault. Independently releasing their Hellwraith (EP) in August 2014 and the Covered in Conflict (Split) with friends Axattack in January 2015. When not writing, the band is playing as many shows as possible and as far as possible on every weekend they can skip town. Proudly hailing from the Raleigh/Durham part of North Carolina, taking aim as a 3-piece, Suppressive Fire takes their influence from bands such as Sodom, Toxic Holocaust, Kreator, Exodus. They have the DIY attitude to get things done and have no plans to slow down.
