Kettlespider have released the first of two new "Live in the studio" videos on Youtube.

Drawing influence from a variety of genres, Kettlespider's sound provides a fresh take on 1970ís progressive rock, but with a modern post-metal punch. The band made their mark in 2012 with the release of their independently released debut album, "Avadante", which features in the Progarchives "Top 100 Albums of 2012" chart, and has received critical acclaim in publications such as Classic Rock's "PROG" magazine and HeavyBlogIsHeavy.

The two new tracks, "Tundra" and "Evolution" were recorded live at Melbourne's Black Pearl Studios and will be made available for FREE download on Kettlespider's Bandcamp page in September.

Watch the band's performance of "Tundra" here:

Glad you think so Bora! Update: i have been working on some of these melodies for the next album and they're starting to take shape, plenty of recurring themes and conceptual threads :)

For everyone's notice: The new Kettlespider single "Inevitable" is indeed available for download, free of charge, at our bandcamp page. Please help yourselves.

All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

Thanks a lot for sharing the feedback BORA,

Glad you like it the way it is! We are currently writing for our second full length album, it is shaping up to be a very layered, rich sounding album with a diverse range of sounds - maybe even the occasional vocal (think camel snow goose style).

Up the coast! cool :)
Where abouts are you based?

Cheers

Hi Simon,

Very promising work and please do keep it up!
(Instrumental is just fine by me. Many good works had been ruined by forced vocals.)

Cheers from a bit further up the coast

An exciting new split release, featuring performances from three of Australia's most promising progressive music acts - Kettlespider, Xenograft and Bear the Mammoth - is now available for purchase, stream and download! 


The release was successfully launched in front of a capacity crowd at Melbourne's Evelyn Hotel venue and is finally ready to share with the world.

The three bands' featured on this much anticipated new release have become identified as the driving force of Melbourne's emerging 'Heavy/Instrumental' scene, with Kettlespider's debut album 'Avadante' receiving much praise within the Progarchives community.

The selection of songs present here perfectly demonstrate each band's unique sound and approach - from Xenograft's complex arrangements and jazz/fusion influences to Bear the Mammoth's atmospheric Post Rock tendencies.

The Split release can be streamed and purchased (including remixes of the songs) at the Anon Islet label bandcamp.

Alternatively, there are a strictly limited number of physical copies available from the official Kettlespider bandcamp.

All media and review enquiries for this release can be forwarded to me (Simon) in a private message, or onto Karen Heath from Anon Islet records:
karenlouiseheath@gmail.com

We hope you enjoy hearing the songs on this release and exploring a new, emerging scene!

As Simon mentioned earlier - our gig at Progfest in Melbourne was one of the highlights of the year. So i thought i'd contribute to the thread by sharing with you all a video of us playing the song 'Avadante' - the title track from our debut album at Progfest. 

Also, If anyone knows how I can have this video featured on our Progarchives 'Kettlespider' artist page - i'd love to know how! 



We have another very special gig coming up this weekend, called 'Creepshow' at The Esplanade Hotel.

Anyone that likes progressive music in Melbourne should pick up a ticket for this event at:


There'll also be burlesque dancing ;)

As for anyone else interested in our music, as Simon has mentioned - you can download our album 'Avadante' at our bandcamp page for just $5!


Cheers, and nice to be in the loop with you all!

Colin

 


Hey guys that video is going to go on your bio page at PA here as I am now loading it on. Thanks for all the kind words too and I loved the album so great to discover this amazing album. Cheers!

The most well-known and respected progressive rock band to emerge from Down Under that  includes elements of world, classical, jazz, heavy rock and groove..The music never gets slowed down, and although the composition style is awesome.
