Ouroboros is a thrash/technical-death-metal band based in Sydney, Australia. The band members are all masters of their craft and work extremely hard to perfect their sound. The band’s efforts have been recognised by industry-leaders via awards for ‘best unsigned band’, ‘best bass player’ and ‘best drummer’ at the Australian Heavy Metal Awards and via generous funding from the Australia Council for the Arts.
On the live circuit, Ouroboros has developed a reputation for putting on extremely tight and memorable shows. The band has shared the stage with some of the most respected names in metal including Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Psycroptic, Necrophagist, Dying Fetus, Aborted, The Amenta, Sadistik Exekution, Sybreed and The Faceless. Ouroboros continue to perform to ever-expanding audiences via headlining gigs around Australia.
The band's debut album Glorification of a Myth was released in June 2011 and has received universal praise from both fans and critics. The album was completely self-funded and showcased the band’s unbridled talent and commitment to producing world-class music. This release was followed up in 2012 with a music video for “Sanctuary”, one of the most popular songs from the album. The video was produced in collaboration with director Paul Shedlowich who used guerrilla filmmaking techniques to capture exceptional Australian locations and acting talent.
In March 2012 The Australia Council for the Arts awarded Ouroboros with a substantial funding package to help assist in the production of the band’s next full-length album. The band members are currently working hard to ensure that this release exceeds expectations and are currently on-track for a 2013 release.
The Glorification of a Myth album is available direct from the band via the Ouroboros website and via iTunes. Ouroboros play shows regularly around Australia. Details are available on the band’s Reverb Nation page.
