Teramaze bring only what can be described as an utterly unique sense of style to the world of metal.
Based in Melbourne, Australia, the band’s blend of progressive, melodic and thrash metal has
attracted an underground following within local bars and small venues. The band has been polishing
their album “AnhedoniA” off since it’s production begun in 2009, as well as performing at various
venues within Australia.
In terms of style, Teramaze say that they’re influenced primarily by bands such as Dream Theater,
Tool and Pantera. With bone crushing riffs, soaring vocals, and a solid rhythm section, the band’s
sense of rhythm and feel is evident within their technical, yet tasteful music.
The sound of the band is made up of five unique individuals. Vocalist, Brett Rerekura cites Layne
Stayley, Devin Townsend, Sebastian Bach and Maynard James Keenan as his main influences. The
powerful vocals that he provides to the overall sound of Teramaze is a key element to their sheer
power as a melodic, yet heavy band. Guitarist, Dean Wells is greatly influenced by guitarists such as
John Petrucci, Marco Sfogli, Jason Becker and Marty Friedman, as is shown by his unique soloing
styles, as well as the band’s riffs that compliment the sonic power of guitarist Mathew Dawson
. The late Julian Percy provided drums for the album, and his unique
style of “fusion hands” and “metal feet” adds to the sheer power of the album.
The band are currently searching for a drummer, if you are interested, and dedicated as a musician,
