Underminer (Australia)

Our first encounter with Australia’s Underminer was just another example of why it’s important to get to a venue early.

This Sydney NSW-based band — which first formed in 2015 – were the opening act for this particular evening’s four band fight card of extreme music (@The Cambridge – Newcastle NSW) — and they did deliver a short but very aggressive set of  metal/punk music. 

The band’s official line-up of current members is listed as vocalist Lachlan Woods along with Brodie Graham, Matt Doherty and Stewart Hodges.

Their sound is about as hardcore as it comes — with Woods’ deep throated vocals meandering amongst aggressive layers of guitars — and while atypical of that genre — did also ooze a certain amount of quality and originality.   

Still considered emerging — Underminer does have a number of independent releases that are available though Deaths Grip Records.

Certainly worth checking out — you can get a little YouTube taste:  HERE
