Southeast Desert Metal

The most isolated metal band in the world, Southeast Desert Metal, are from Santa Teresa, a small Aboriginal community in Central Australia.

The Eastern Arrernte band are hardened from many years of playing across the rugged Australian landscape. They’ve developed a sound that reflects their surroundings: dangerous and distinct. After joining forces with Alice Springs based metal label The Black Wreath in 2013, the band released their first EP “Let’s Rock!” which sold out multiple pressings. They toured the outback and played many festivals, with an ever-growing legion of fans.

Influenced by heavy metal greats such as Black Sabbath, AC/DC and Iron Maiden, the band have created their own signature sound. The huge riffs and thumping grooves are delivered with passion and precision. The technical lead work of guitarists Chris Wallace and Gavin Hayes holds it’s own with that of their idols.
