Darker Half

Darker Half play METAL: drawing on the roots of classic heavy metal, they have been inspired by thrash, power, death, speed and more to build a unique style all their own. Darker Half come from Sydney Australia. The band is based around the dual guitars of Vo Simpson and Brad Dickson. The guitar harmonies of Vo and Brad intertwine searing lead breaks with Vo's screaming power vocals and brutal doom growl across the solid yet adventurous bass and drums of Simon Hamilton and Dom Simpson.

The Barons of Tang

In their own words, The Barons of Tang describe themselves as "gypsy deathcore." Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, they take the best from gypsy, and add a slightly heavier edge to it. Vocals are kept to a minimum, allowing the raw energy of the instruments to pull the listener into a crazy trance fuelled by catchy beats and hanging on delicious melodies.

John Herbert: guitar
Jon Washington: guitar
Simon Demaine: bass
Richard Heath: sax and keys
