Nucleust incorporates four passion driven musicians who strive to deliver what can be classified as heavy odd music comprising of unpredictable combinations of metal riffs and motives. Having been inspired by a diverse range of genres from Classical Music to Doom/Goth Metal, from Thrash to Death Metal, and from Jazz to Progressive Rock/Metal, Nucleust creates music, which is a reflection of what is happening in the real world through their own screaming critique, backed by a distinctive sound of extreme 7 & 6 string guitar riffs, massive crunchy bass sounds and groovy heavy drum patterns.
Since starting the band in 2013, Nucleust has gained momentum steadily. With the release of the first track “Whisper”, the band had attracted attention from both local and global metal communities. Following the release of their second track “Pandemonium”, Nucleust was introduced to the US market through heavy metal radio station, “The Heaviest Matter In The Universe”.
The band entered into the local scene on December 10th 2013 with their debut live show and has developed a solid fan base since then. As a result of the trending popularity amongst metal fans, they then attracted the attention of Blunt Magazine to feature “Whisper (Blunt Edition)” on the cover CD of the April 2014 issue.
Nucleust then hit the studio to record their debut E.P at Sovereign studios in July 2014 recording a six track release titled “Fractured Equilibrium” which was released on November 8th 2014 through a launch show at the Amplifier Capitol venue in Perth. The EP release tour included several dates around Perth and regional shows in Bunbury. With all shows drawing a solid crowd and receiving positive feedback towards their live performance and the debut EP including standup reviews from The Rockpit and Heavy Magazine and a radio premiere of the EP by Cooper from KDUR radio in Colorado, the band has gained a lot more confidence in themselves and their ability to create heavy music in their own way!
The band started 2015 playing alongside some of the biggest names in Perth’s hardcore/metal scene such as Statues and Anchored with the support of their fans winning Nucleust a slot in Summer Break 2015 by voting in an Instagram competition. In May the band traveled to Indonesia for a 6 date tour which proved to be very successful and an enlightening experience and August saw the launch of their very first music video for a single track called “Faith By The Sword”. 2016 saw the band take things to the next level beginning with a successful supporting show with the legendary Soilwork along with Aversions Crown in February after which the band hit the studio to record their second EP titled “Resistivity” which received a very positive response from the media and fans including extensive radio play across Australia. This was followed by their first interstate tour in September with shows in Melbourne and Sydney as well as several dates in W.A. as part of a national tour and a hugely successful supporting show with Italian metal legends Lacuna Coil. A second music video for the track “Of King And Tree” was released in December which also received air time on ABC’s ‘Rage” program.
With immense plans for the future, Nucleust will continue it’s journey of producing inspiring, heavy and thought provoking music…
