From South-East Queensland, Australia, The Black Swamp are here to bring you straight up, booze fuelled riffage to bang your head to. Inspired by the masters of all things heavy, their music has evolved organically, jamming through all the straight up genres of heavy music from sludge, southern and stoner metal, through to more classic elements of thrash and hard rock. Live is where The Swamp thrives, all you need to do is get the beers in and prepare your neck for punishment!
Formed in late 2012, TBS kicked off live shows around South-East Queensland in early 2013 which saw the band share stages with the likes of Azreal, Deprivation, Recoil VOR, In Death, Bound For Ruin, Kyzer Soz, Malakyte and so on. The band has continued into 2014 with appearances on Darkc3ll/Witchgrinder's Industrial Revilution tour and made an appearance at Wallapalooza festival.
On May 1st 2014, TBS released their debut EP titled "Foulness" which was recorded and produced by Nick Carpenter at Core Studios on the Gold Coast and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music in New York with artwork by Glenno Smith.
