The Schoenberg Automaton


The Schoenberg Automaton (TSA) are a mouthful and an earful of mind-bending technical death metal.

With a sound that's unmistakeable yet hard to pin down, TSA made a big impact on the Australian metal scene with a debut EP in 2011 that generated a lot of hype for the critically acclaimed release of Vela in 2013.

TSA have built a reputation as a ferocious and calculated live act, performing alongside several world-class notaries including Animals as Leaders, Between the Buried and Me, Born Of Osiris, Psycroptic, Veil of Maya, King Parrot, Ne Obliviscaris, Fleshgod Apocalypse and appearing at Australia's iconic Soundwave festival as winners of Triple J Unearthed.

With the upcoming 2014 release of their highly anticipated sophomore album, TSA are ready to step it up a notch and compete on the world stage with a brand new set of savage and original compositions.
