BioOCTANIC are a 6-piece metal band from Adelaide, Australia who seamlessly fuse together elements of NWOAHM, melodic death metal, modern metal and hard rock, laced with classical undertones. This combination gives OCTANIC the aggressiveness, punch and intensity of metal with the melodic and epic soundscapes of a movie score, engaging and captivating audiences everywhere. OCTANIC's addictive blend of majestic keyboards, bone-crunching rhythms and soaring lead solos, coupled with passionate vocals and compelling lyrics have endeared OCTANIC to a great many fans. Since first gracing the stage in 2007, OCTANIC's professional and hard-working ethos has built them considerable momentum and respect, through regular headline spots as well as their coordination and management of a number of quality metal events, thus carving their own niche in the local metal scene and clearly aspiring to greater success on both the national and international fronts. After releasing their impressive 2-disc debut EP 'Industry' in April 08 to great reviews, OCTANIC spent the majority of October / November 2010 in the studio recording powerful new material for their self-titled album due out 2011. This album includes live strings on all tracks, and will feature the amazing talents of the 'Adelaide University Choral Society'. OCTANIC's exciting new members - drummer Scott Powell, guitarist Stefan Butler and bassist Glen Crawford have brought a wealth of skill, experience and enthusiasm to OCTANIC's already distinctive sound which has further increased their epic stage presence and charismatic live performances. 2011 augers very well for OCTANIC with many local and interstate shows already scheduled throughout the remainder of the year. Don't miss the opportunity to come out and party with OCTANIC when they venture to a venue near you, they'll be sure to blow you away!
