Full-On Feature: Aversions Crown

I had to do a Full-On Feature of these dudes. One of the sickest metal bands coming out of Australia, yet again. Aversions Crown bring a twisted extraterrestrial apocalypse to DeathCore (songs Hollow Planet, Overseer). Just don’t call them Aliencore.

iHateTheScene: When will you cross over and tour the US?
Chris Cougan (Guitar): As soon as possible! As soon as the opportunity presents itself and we can afford it we will be on our way.

IHTS: How is it being a DIY metal band in Australia?

We didn’t really notice how different touring Australia was until we toured mainland Europe/UK. You drive 40 minutes down the road and you’re in another city with another 300+ people waiting to see you play. One good thing about Australian crowds is that they buy a ton of merch and recently more people have actually been buying CDs. [Read more...]
