horrowood manequins

Horrorwood Manequins made the MBM bill when an intuative fan contacted the office and said "You gotta listen to this demo it's fu*)#n awesome"

They hail from western Sydney and although only a new band by todays standards their in your face riffs and blood curdling vocals are a Metalheads wish come true.

If you like your music harder than the rock of Gibraltar the the Horrorwood Manequins are the band for you!!


Finite are a Novacastrian band with a difference. They breathe new life into a lagging hard rock genre. With influences ranging from Sunk Loto, The Butterfly Effect, Killswitch Engage and Superheist to name but a few, they constructively bring together the best of their influences to meld into their own brand of melodic hard rock.

Their music is rugged hard stuff that could virtually strip paint yet they aren't afraid of the subtleties of melodious music. They quite convincingly fuse the best of heavy and softer, more melodic rock into arguably the most aurally appealing music heard in a long time


Skura formed in 2004 when the boys left High School and realized their passion for all things metal.

Skura are an alternate metal band soon to make their mark in the world. Bringing forth a unique blend of chunky, hard-hitting riffs, solid drumming and intense vocals all tied together with an insane use of time signatures.
