IRONSTONE is a progressive metal band from Bendigo, Australia. Making their break into the Melbourne metal scene in 2018, their high energy live performance and skilled musicianship soon turned heads and earned them the attention of many new fans. Greatly influenced by progressive giants such as Periphery, TesseracT and Twelve Foot Ninja, their music features the brutality of down-tuned percussive guitars and extreme vocals, balanced in delicate equilibrium with melodic choruses, thought-provoking lyrics and atmospheric layers. The result is a highly modern metal sound that is sophisticated and hard hitting.
IRONSTONE released a single and video for ‘Downpour’ in May 2020, closely followed by the release of their debut EP ‘Prophecy’. The 6 track EP received a great response from worldwide media and dozens of very positive reviews. The band has since followed up with a further single/video release, ‘Hollow’ in September 2020.
IRONSTONE is comprised of Dan Charlton on lead vocals, Edward Warren on lead guitar, Oliver Hosking on bass guitar, Aidan Kalms on rhythm guitar and Jackson Whyte on drums.
