Hitting the stage August 2012 Heavy Metal outfit Tempest Rising have toured all over Japan, released their debut EP 'Calm Before The Storm' in 2012 AND released Single 'Dominion That Falls' in 2013... a prelude to their upcoming debut album which will be released early 2014. They have toured all over Australia and played with bands like King Parrot, Marduk, Taake, Psycroptic, Claim The Throne, Advent Sorrow, Psychonaut, Malignant Monster and MORE!
Tempest Rising are not your average metal band. They have cleans from high falsettos thru to operatic power vocals, they also have deep guttural growls and piercing screams. The vocalist Vin likes to keep things a mix between KoRn's Jonathan Davis, Disturbed's David Draiman, Lamb of God's Randy Blythe and Killswitch Engage's Howard Jones.
As for the groove laden music of Tempest Rising. James and Sheldon the guitarists both bring something unique and individual to the fold. James with his rich Thrash Metal background, idolising Slayer and Metallica and Sheldon with his unyielding dedication to Dream Theater! The riff's come out chunky, groovy, semi-progressive and with a bit of early core (Killswitch) thrown in for good measure.
Jarrad, the groove master loves to get a good twang and funk to his bass strings, having a very early KoRn feel and Bill likes to experiment with different and unique beats that keep the backbone of each Tempest Rising song solid.
All in all, Tempest Rising love what they do and with an International tour and two official releases under their belt in just 12 months, expect them to be rocking the airwaves for years to come!
