Adelaide’s finest exponents of true heavy metal, Matterhorn are soon to be unleashing their debut album, Crimes Of Man, packed with 13 original tracks of metal mayhem. The album is set for release on the 16th of March and will feature vocalist Amanda Ozolins’ incredibly powerful vocals. There is something formidable about her voice that comes roaring out of the speakers and grabs the listener by the throat, commanding their attention. Focussing your attention further, guitarist Brendan Ozolins delivers 100% authentic, face-punching heavy metal riffage; no breakdowns or prog weirdness going on—there’s just straight up pummelling riffs and soaring solos of pure molten metal. The full frontal assault is driven home via Steve Opitz and Jaryd Dorey on bass and drums, who lock down monstrous groove from the engine room.

Ozolin’s lyrics tackle some pretty heavy contemporary issues, such as: the superficial nature of social media, corporate greed, the refugee crisis, the threat of global conflict, and even the Bali Nine. This album comes about after the band could no longer ignore fans’ requests for original music—usually known as the nation’s premiere heavy metal tribute show performing all the classic songs from bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, DIO, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Ozzy, Metallica and more.

Matterhorn have now produced a slab of their own metal and it’s pure, unadulterated heavy freakin’ metal that you want. Matterhorn have got what you need!
