Australian Heavy Metal Band TABERAH have signed a two-album deal with the German label Dust On The Tracks Records. Work on the band’s second album, “NECROMANCER” is completed and it’s worldwide release is scheduled for July 2013.
The new album was engineered by Theo B (Scorpion), produced and mixed by Joe Haley (Psycroptic) and mastered by Australian Metal Icon “Stu Marshall” (Death Dealer, Empires Of Eden, Dungeon, Paindivision).
Stu Marshall (Death Dealer, Empires Of Eden, Dungeon, Paindivision) stated: “TABERAH’s NECROMANCER is one of the best metal releases to come out of Australia in the last 10 years”.
Glen Casebeer (AMERICAN ROCK SCENE): „Shit, they are great!“
The “Increasingly Infamous Tasmanian Devils” themselves, consists of the following musicians: Jonathon B – Guitar + Vocals, Myles ‘Flash’ Flood – Guitar, Tom “Bam Bam” Brockman – Drums, Dave ‘The Doctor’ Walsh – Bass.
Inspired by their strong musical bond Jonathon Barwick and Tom Brockman created, in 2004, what is now known as TABERAH. The bands sound and live performance is derived from a vast range of influences including the traditional heavy metal stylings of Iron Maiden + Black Sabbath, the rock n roll swagger of AC/DC + Thin Lizzy mixed with the over the top, tongue in cheek theatrics of Queen + The Darkness. All with a slightly modern and original twist.
Taberah quickly became a staple act in the Tasmanian live music scene in 2006 and have now become one of Tasmania’s top exports around Australia in any musical genre. In early 2011 TABERAH blitzed a nationwide vote then were hand picked byLemmy Kilmister himself to open for Motorhead (UK) on the Sydney leg of their 2011Australian tour.
Other milestones include sharing the stage all around Australia with high profile international and national acts such as: Paul Di’anno – ex Iron Maiden (UK), Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens – ex Judas Priest/Iced Earth/Yngwie Malmsteen, Blessed by a Broken Heart (USA), LORD(AUS), Psycroptic (AUS), Black Majesty (AUS), Steve Grimmett – formerly of Grim Reaper/Lionsheart/Onslaught (UK), Elm Street (AUS), Darker Half(AUS) and many more national and international acts.
2011 saw the band record & release their debut album “The Light Of Which I Dream” with acclaimed Producer Joe Haley of Psycroptic. The record is a chronicle of the bands early years of blood, sweat, beers and tears on the national live circuit. The album earned TABERAH worldwide acclaim.
In support of “NECROMANCER“, TABERAH have their sights firmly set on the international stage for 2013/14. This includes plans for a run of shows in the Europe, USA, Japan as well as high profile international/national supports in Australia such as Epica (HOL), Lord (AUS), Voyager (AUS) andMunicipal Waste (US) on 22nd June in Hobart/Australia to name a few.
TABERAH deliver a show that is full of energy, fun, theatrics, wandering solos and plenty of crowd interaction. This earning the quartet a solid reputation of being a “must see” live band.
