|Alice Springs death metal band Miazma are a force to be reckoned with. With aggressive riffs and uncompromising vocals Miazma have quickly gained a cult status due to their large and faithful local audience and fiercely energetic live performances.
Beginning as a four-piece in early 2008 the band has gone from strength to strength supporting national and international heavy-hitters; Tasmania's death metal exports Psycroptic in 2011 and Singapore's black metal hoard Impiety in 2012. With performances at bassinthedust, TerrorFest and Bastardfest -- Miazma have evolved into a five-strong group, with changes to the line-up over the years enabling them to focus on developing their sound stylistically and refining their musical compositions into the crushing sound they are known for today.
In 2011 Miazma co-founded The Black Wreath Collective - a self-funded record label and recording studio lifting the profile and opportunities available to metal bands in the dead center of Australia.
The desolate surroundings of Alice Springs have provided Miazma with a wasteland sense of self, giving the band a primal, confrontational complexity in both live and studio settings. Not to be missed - Miazma are launching their debut album in 2013 with an accompanying nation-wide tour.
