Is it Monday again already? Must be time for Mosh Pit Monday. Thank goodness. Another opportunity for me to share some great new music or music you may never heard before. It was a quiet old weekend for me this weekend just gone. The wife had taken off with some of her girlfriends for a weekend of crafting, of all things. Something she enjoys doing so I got stuck into the studio to fine tune a song I’ve been working on for a while now. Just trying to finalise drums and cymbals (by using loops…I’m no drummer) but I think I’m getting there. I missed seeing Fear Factory last Thursday night but I heard they were good. I did get to see them at the Soundwave Festival last year but would’ve been good to see on their own in a smaller venue. Anyway, here’s my feature band for this week’s Mosh Pit Monday.
I might be a little bit biased but I can’t help but admire the Brisbane music scene at the moment. Not only metal bands but all genres of music. One such band that have been followers of mine for a while are Devonian, a heavy rock/power metal band out of Brisbane. The guys (and gal) have been getting rave reviews around town and getting plenty of gigs in Brisbane and interstate.
A five piece band, members are Diletta Luna on vocals, Michael Randall on lead guitar, Hayden Roberts on rhythm guitar, Craig Myers on bass guitar and Alan Mahood on drums. A relatively newly formed band since October 2015 but whatever they’re doing, it’s working. Continuously performing at the regular metal venues in town, Devonian have a distinct sound that suits the live scene perfectly.
This is their self titled track “Devonian” and as you can see a great band to see live. They seem to be doing everything right with their hard rock, progressive metal sound, original riffs and with Diletta upfront on vocals, she’s belting out the tunes as good as any female fronted metal band. I wish the guys every success with their upcoming gigs and hope to catch them live myself one day soon. If you want to catch where they’ll be playing next, you can follow Devonian on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.
Another week, another dollar to be earned and more music to be made and listened to. Have a great week and remember, keep moshin’. ,,,/ ,,,/
