Taberah – ‘The infamous Tasmanian Devils’

Taberah is a power metal band from Tasmania (Australia)
Jonathon Barwick and Tom Brockman created it in 2004. They state their influencs as coming from Iron Maiden + Black Sabbath, AC/DC + Thin Lizzy, Queen + The Darkness. All with a slightly modern and original twist.
Taberah quickly became a staple act in the Tasmanian live music scene. They recorded two demos, 2006 and 2007  and an EP containing a Queen cover song (Crazy Little Thing Called Love)  in 2009.

In early 2011 TABERAH were hand picked by Lemmy Kilmister himself to open for Motorhead on the Sydney leg of their 2011 Australian tour. Other milestones include sharing the stage all around Australia with high profile international and national acts such as: Paul Di’anno – (ex Iron Maiden) and Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens, LORD, Psycroptic, Black Majesty and more Australian acts.2011 saw the band record & release their debut album “The Light Of Which I Dream”. The album earned TABERAH some attention, they stat worldwide, but I’d say locally. 2012 saw them recording the follow up entitled “Necromancer” set for an August 2013 release.

Through one of their gigs Taberah came to the attention of Australian metal icon Stu Marshall (ex Dungeon, Death Dealer, Empires of Eden) and he was keen to help with the album and the band in general. This lead to Stu mastering  “Necromancer” and helping the band ink a deal with German promotion titan Rock N Growl. Stu is said to have stated that ‘Necromancer is one of the best Australian metal releases in the last 10 years’. Let’s see, until we can listen, here’s the debut
