About The Event

Brisbane based hardcore-groove metal band Massic release their long-anticipated sophomore

album ‘Cognisant’ on May 13 2022. To celebrate this release, they are hosting an album launch

show at Woolly Mammoth Mane Stage in Fortitude Valley.

The result of more than two years of effort that saw the band navigate the pressures of the

global pandemic and internal health issues, Cognisant builds significantly on their

enthusiastically received 2018 debut ‘Redshift’.

‘Cognisant’ sees a massive upping-of-the-ante on the powerful riffs, dynamic rhythm section

and intense vocal delivery that are developed characteristics of a band that has garnered a

reputation as one of the most dynamic and energetic live acts in the Australian heavy music


Supporting them on the night is an all-local affair showcasing the diverse range of heavy music

that Brisbane has to offer.

Dead for Ages is the coalescence of four Brisbane stalwarts who converged based on their

mutual love of all things punk and metal. Featuring members of Brisbane underground legends,

the Quickening, Bad Day Down and We Set Sail, Dead for Ages’ mission is to combine their

love of melody, harmony, speed and technique. This is on full display on their 2019 debut

record ‘In Defence of an Ordinary Life’, which quickly became a crowd favourite on 4ZZZ. Listen

now on all streaming services.

Tetrament began in 2017 when Matty (vocals) and Sammy (lead guitar) decided the world

wasn’t heavy enough. Joined soon after by Coxy (bass), Shane (rhythm guitar) and Mick

(drums), Brisbane has been put on notice.

With over ten years active in the scene, Adriatic have mastered a unique blend of energetic

hardcore, prog metal, and rich Balkan rhythms and textures. Lyrically, the band promotes

strong positive, personal, environmental, spiritual and political messages aiming to increase the

scene’s involvement in raising awareness of the burning issues of modern society. They are co-

founders of the SCHEMA collective, an alliance of musicians and artists from Brisbane that have

united to support each other. Adriatic has shared the stage with legendary acts such as 36

Crazyfists and Superheist. The music is driven by energy and movement, and this will always be

the goal – to #giveallyougot!
