CATACOMBS formed in early 2008 with after a chance meeting of the two guitarists Mark Hamono and Ian Mather. After months of combining and refining their respective catalogues, it was clear to that this was something that needed to be done properly. Friends of the band Matt Boarder (drums) and Julian Fernandes (bass) were keen. However the band struggled to find a singer who fit the bill until mid-2009 when Matt Askeland was found and completed the lineup.
<br>The band worked for months, creating new songs, playing various shows and sharing the stage with acts such as Psycroptic and also supported for GxSxD (Japan) in Melbourne on their Australian tour.
<br>2011 saw the band commence recording their debut EP, a self-titled, 4 track release which captured the band’s sound and direction and, after months of anticipation, was released in mid-2012 with a great response.
<br>Moving forward, CATACOMBS have locked in early 2013 to commence recording of their first full length album with a 2014 release, which will have lovers of Melodic Death Metal wanting more.
