Based in Australia's city of Thrash, Melbourne, Abraxxas are forging their own original version of thrash and speed metal, by taking the raw and uncompromising sounds of the great Teutonic thrash bands and combining it with the melodicism and memorability of the classic 1980's heavy metal bands.
Originally the brain child of vocalist Idris Eldritch, the first incarnation of the band went through several line-up changes until early 2013 when the 5-piece was completed by guitarists Tom 'Slick' Cavuto and Sean Kelleher, Leigh Gladman on drums, and Haas Humayun on bass.
In early 2013 after a fruitful song writing and rehearsal period, the moniker Abraxxas was chosen and the band began playing some well received shows around Melbourne and interstate.
In May 2014 Abraxxas recorded and released their debut demo titled "Bitter Harvest", featuring some of the band's most aggressive yet catchy material to date. The demo marks the beginning of the band's recording output, with an album on the horizons in the near future.
