Music

Whitehorse

Metal

Melbourne VIC AUSTRALIA

198
For the past seven years Whitehorse has gathered together members of Melbourne's underground music community to create crushingly heavy, sludge-metal layered with electronics. Drafting members from the punk, grindcore, experimental, and noise scenes Whitehorse often garner comparisons to the likes of Corrupted and Khanate. Having toured Japan, the USA and Australia, plus having released 6 audio documents on Australian, Belgian, German and US labels (Sweatlung / Sabbatical / Conspiracy / Blind Date / 20 Buck Spin), Whitehorse hit their most productive point in 2010, performing in support of several international visitors to Australia including Birushanah, Zeni Geva, Om, Lichens, Wolves In The Throne Room, Monarch and Coffins. The troupe is presently recording new material for a new full-length album plus split records with The Body (Providence, RI) and Extortion (Australia), all due for release in early 2011. Whitehorse members have performed acts including: Grey Daturas, Occult Blood, Collapsed Toilet Vietnam, Ivens, 731, Black Jesus, Breathing Shrine, Fallout, Pisschrist, and Encirlcing Sea, amongst many more.
