Brisbane band Kaurelean (pronounced kay-ruh-lee-an) shape a modern death metal sound with prominent symphonic and electronic elements. They combine epic instrumentation and a sci-fi aesthetic with a solid foundation of brutal drumming, shredding guitars and blistering bass to create a unique sound of metal that is all their own and stands apart from what the prolific Australian metal sound has on offer.
Kaerulean formed on the Gold Coast in December 2011 when guitarist Amber Rea and drummer Ben Davies got together to jam. The band quickly took shape and over the next twelve months they established themselves on the Gold Coast while writing and recording material. After the band released their first single, Jaded Angel, which was featured on a covermount CD released by Blunt Magazine in March of 2013, they began to shift their focus to writing their first full length album.
The bands debut Adrift was released in October 2015 and it was well received among the local and interstate metal communities. Following some line up changes Kaerulean now turned their attention towards honing their live performance as well as expanding their sound as a band, especially with their new members ready to write and have input. With a solid lineup in place and a clear direction, Kaerulean set about writing and recording their second full length album Metempsychosis which was released in December 2016 to rave reviews.
Kaerulean has backed up these releases with some powerful live performances, playing with some of Australia’s premier metal bands like Desecrator, Frankenbok, Rise of Avernus, Chronolyth and Truth Corroded as well playing festivals such as Metal United Down Under, Shredfest and Ye Gods of Metal. They have also landed international supports, sharing the stage with Norwegian heavy metal icons Arcturus.
