Ignite the Ibex (Australia) - Ignite the Ibex (EP 2010)
TECHNICAL DEATH METAL
Founded in 2006 in Sydney, Ignite The Ibex are a technical death metal unit widely known for being the first band to introduce the eight-string guitar to Australia. Delivering technical riffs at gut-wrenching low tuning, backed by relentless blast beats and aggressive guttural vocals.
The band only having a handful of live shows for the first four years of existence, during so had the focus purely on key writing and developing the sound that would become Ignite The Ibex.
In 2010, the release of the self titled album (produced by drummer Anthony Dyer) was thrown out into the public’s eye, with the band being compared to the greats such as Meshuggah, Ion Dissonance and Devolved.
Mid 2010 seen Ignite The Ibex sign to “Assidian” (Management and Bookings Agency) alongside a prestigious roster of some of Australia’s finest current metal talent.
Late 2010 Ignite The Ibex underwent a line-up change with Terry Crane joining the Australian Defences which saw the introduction of Jamie-Leigh Smith as a full time member on vocals, just moment’s before embarking on Ignite The Ibex’s first tour, the “Harbingers of Storm” with fellow band mates Anthony Dyer (drums), Nick Pupovac (guitar), Ben Dubarry (Guitar) and Trevor Raiss (bass) as a complete unit delivering an explosive live show with non-stop attitude, notoriously known to shake the foundations of any venue.
In 2011, the band has taken a step back from as many live performances to focus on the writing of the new album, which is looking to be released later this year. During this time Ignite The Ibex has risen to the opportunities and played along bands such as Ulcerate (nz), The Amenta, Ruins and secured the support slots for the upcoming shows Devolved Technologies’ Tour (Syd) in June and with a huge line-up including Psycroptic in September at Bastardfest (Syd).
Early 2012 will see Ignite The Ibex tour Australia with the upcoming full length release and have plans to hit the overseas market with an array of live performances.
