Only Ghosts Remain
Only Ghosts Remain is a North Queensland-based alternative metal outfit whose sonic palette lies at the intersection of beauty and chaos. Through the juxtaposition of clean-cut vocals and brutal metal screams, listeners are guided through dynamic passages that meander between neck-snapping breakdowns and intimate, ethereal interludes.
Hailing from the Gold Coast, Queensland, Novus is an energetic 5 piece melodic-hardcore band taking over stages wherever they can. With the release of their debut EP “Solace” in 2019, Novus spent the year building a fan base in the local Brisbane scene, while travelling around south-east Queensland, and interstate to Sydney for the first time. 2020 saw Novus continue their momentum with the release of 3 interwound singles “hopeless”, “Reflect” & debuting on the radio for the first time “Mythomania (feat Jack Bergin)”.
Heavy mutants RedHook officially spawned in 2018 with the arrival of their debut singles minute On Fire’and‘Turn Up The Stereotype’, which clocked up over 2 million streams across YouTube (largely through fan-generated content)and garnered rave media reviews, including two coveted 5-star triple j Unearthed reviews from ‘Good Nights’ presenter Bridget Hustwaite and ‘Short.fast.loud’ host Josh Merriel.
Featuring the core songwriting duo of Emmy Mack and Craig Wilkinson, two strangers from opposite ends of regional NSW whose paths collided after moving to Sydney in 2017 and bonding over the role that music has played in both of their lives, RedHook combine with the young gun drummer Alex Powys to create experimental, heartfelt and attitude-filled alternative music that fuses multiple genres including rock, rap, metalcore and electronica, with lyrics that aim to inspire listeners to keep fighting against the forces of darkness-both in the real world and inside their own heads.
After decimating crowds around the country for over two decades Frankenbok could easily rest on their laurels and survive by name alone.
They could, but they won’t.
After the recent return of arguably their best vocalist in Dan McDougall, Frankenbok have been writing new material and honing their craft almost in secrecy for the last 18 months.
The result is a caged beast fighting to get out and intent on waging war on the eardrums of metal heads far and wide.
Never a band to strictly adhere to one genre, Frankenbok’s new material has been described as a “game changer” by HEAVY mag and was recently debuted for the first time to a welcoming and appreciative sold-out crowd at Melbourne’s Kilfest.
