Segression is a heavy metal band from Wollongong, Australia. Originally known as Eezee and playing sleaze metal, the group decided to change its name after moving into in a thrash direction in mid-1994. As Eezee, the band had recorded an EP in 1993 and the 1995 album Rise From Darkness. The group had also played support shows with Morbid Angel, Machine Head and Deicide. The line-up at this time was Christiaan Rand (bass, vocals), Chris Sellin (guitar), James Broadbent (guitar) and John Buckley (drums).
Jordan and Ben first became mates when their mutual passion, in exploring and writing new music, yearned to be shared. When not playing and writing, they were raiding their father’s album collections for inspiration and direction. With the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Crowded House and Simon and Garfunkel they were in good stead for the future. Also drawing from contemporary artists such as Fleet Foxes, Angus Stone & Bon Iver they have developed a great, fresh sound.
Confession was started by Michael Crafter in 2008. Dan Brown from Byron Bay hardcore band 50 Lions plays bass. In 2008, Confession released an EP on Resist Records entitled Can't Live, Can't Breathe. The band has also completed several tours around Australia. The band has recently parted ways with their guitarist and drummer. Matt Owens, the former drummer, states on myspace that he left the band as he has decided to focus more time on other interests and careers and has nothing against the other band members.
