We have a new website! Please join mailing list HERE
Australia’s long standing metal progressive leaders ALARUM have been playing their own blend of metal for 20+ years.
Inspired by the likes of Death, Cynic & Atheist in the mid 90’s, Alarum formed their own sound, blending all forms of metal alongside rock, jazz, latin and fusion.
The band’s 4th album (Title TBA) was recorded during 2018/2019, mixed by Neil Kernon (Cannibal Corpse, Nile, Spiral Architect, Nevermore, Deicide, Queensryche, Hall & Oates etc) and mastered by John Ruberto is undoubtedly the strongest, most succinct album produced by the band to date.
The bands prior albums Natural Causes (2011), Eventuality (2004) & Fluid Motion (1998) were released via Willowtip Records, Earache Records, Hammerheart Records and saw the band tour Australia and Internationally many times.
ALARUM have proven they can match the big names on a worldwide level playing at festivals such as Maryland Deathfest, ProgPower Europe, New England Metalfest, LA Deathfest, Metal For The Brain and toured alongside Necrophagist, Arsis, Cattle Decapitation, Obituary, Testament, Death Angel, Lamb of God, Gojira, Cynic, Obscura & many more.
Their newest album (currently being mastered) is a journey from start to finish. Alarums’ music stands out as original, progressive and truly unique.
March 2019: Somnium Nox / Alarum / Obscura Aussie tour: Done!! Obscura guys were a great bunch of dudes and talented beyond comprehension, we are grateful and humbled. The Somnium Nox guys played killer brooding sets consistently. A million thanks!!
