Doing a bit of travelling at the moment, from the uk originally. Just wondered out of shear curiosity if there was anyone from australia here who knows of any aussy bands. I've never heard anything of an Australian scene in metal, but i thought it would be interesting to ask.
*As far as metal goes some of the best are:
-Portal - death/black/ambient hybrid
-Desembowelment - death/doom/grind/ambient
-Destroyer 666 (early) - black/metal
-Urgrund (early) - black
-Bestial Warlust - black
-Ignivomous - straight death
*As far as modern classical music and also neo classical music goes:
-Dead Can Dance
*And if your partial to the marvels of what was the 70's progressive rock world we have:
-Sebastian Hardie (despite the sentimentalities)http://australia.corrupt.org/category/Art
has some reviews with more to come soon.
