Gidday and welcome to another Mosh Pit Monday. A lot’s been happening here at Forever Falling Short in the last 6 months. We’ve been seeing a few gigs and I’ve been active over on Facebook buying and selling gear and I’ve created a group called Musicians Connected. If you’re a musician, of any genre, you’re able to post in this group, letting everyone know your skills and what you’re looking to get into. It’s available for guitarists, violinists, pianists, singers, you name it. Check it out if you’re looking to join a group. I’ve also been discovering a lot, and I mean a lot of fantastic Aussie metal bands that I want to share with you.
I first came across Trinatyde when I saw that they were playing at a local gig quite a while ago. I didn’t get around to seeing them but I liked their Facebook page and it seems they’re a regular on the Brisbane metal scene. I listened to a couple of their video clips and it just confirmed how strong metal music is in my home town. I tell ya, it’s a small world. I’ve been wheeling, dealing and swapping music gear on Facebook groups I belong to and I just so happened to be swapping one of my guitars for a Black Star head unit and the guy I was swapping with said he needed the head unit for a gig that Saturday night. We arranged to meet up at the venue to arrange the swap. When he told me he was the lead guitarist for Trinatyde, I was stoked. I got to see them play live and they were sick.
A 5 piece band out of Brisbane who formed in 2010, the guys have been making an impression on the Brisbane music scene for a while now, playing their developing and progressive style of metal. Founding members Dan (vocals) and Matt (guitar) recently added Jay (bass), Josh (guitar) and Andrew (drums) to the group. The guys play all around Brisbane, the Sunshine and Gold Coasts and northern New South Wales.
It’s hard to find a metal band these days that has an individual sound. Everyone seems to be copying other band’s styles but Trinatyde have got their own sound and style. They’re excellent live and create a lot of energy on stage. The above video of their 2014 song “Deathplunge” has a different line up to their current band members but it gives you an indication of their hard metal style with subtle melodic rock mixed in. Make sure you follow them on Facebook so you can catch their next gig because these guys really go off live. You won’t want to miss them. They really do deserve a lot more recognition then they currently get.
Thanks for joining me again this week for Mosh Pit Monday. I’ll be back next week with great new music from local and overseas bands. Until then, keep moshin’. ,,,/ ,,,/
