Quaero Verum / Bio

Forming in early 2009 Quaero Verum spent their formative months crafting a number of songs that drew inspiration from all facets of metal, determined to create a sound that could see them float seamlessly from the most beautiful melody to the most crushing Groove in an instant.

Their inaugural year as a performing ensemble was capped off by spending a week atop of the Triple J unearthed metal chart as well as receiving national airplay on Triple J ‘Full Metal Racket’. Further support was shown by local stations, Tune FM Armidale, Triple R FM Melbourne and FBI Radio Sydney all of whom featured a song off of the bands three track demo in their programming.

Quaero Verum’s early momentum came to a grinding halt with the departure of inaugural vocalist Steve Labadi in late 2011, forcing the band to endure almost a year in isolation as they auditioned countless singers for the open slot. The band was determined not to settle on a vocalist for the sake of returning to the scene and had their perseverance rewarded in October 2012 with the arrival of Luke Dietrich.

Luke slotted into the Quaero Verum family seamlessly, giving the band renewed vigor and a greater sense of purpose with his sheer power and unrivaled work ethic. The addition of a far more aggressive vocalist has also allowed the band to strive towards a much heavier sound, with a darker undertone and overall feel. The year spent in exile also enabled the four remaining members to hone their craft with a concerted focus on delivering a better performance both visually and musically.

With all the pieces now in place Quaero Verum are more determined than ever to once again grace the stages of Adelaide’s metal scene and pay homage to the loyal fan base that has kept the QV flame alight in the bands absence.
