Jazz Sabbath (UK) make their Australian Debut this July 2024!

For the first time in Australia; Jazz Sabbath.

Jazz Sabbath is a jazz trio from the UK that plays (instrumental) jazz interpretations of Black Sabbath songs. Helmed by pianist Adam Wakeman (Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne’s solo band since 2004), Jazz Sabbath has been exploring the boundaries between jazz and the songs that defined heavy metal with sold out shows throughout Europe. Echoing already present jazz riffs and discovering new ones.

Presenting themselves as a jazz trio formed in 1968 and being the original writers of the tracks, later made famous by Black Sabbath, they released their self-titled debut album in 2020. In April 2022 they released Vol.2, which entered the Billboard jazz album chart at #6. Their albums’ streaming count is in the millions and both albums got special Record Store Day Mono editions, which sold out within days.

On the albums Adam is joined by Ash Soan on drums and Jerry Meehan on bass, plus a list of guest musicians, such as Simon McBride (Deep Purple) and Gus G (Firewind, Ozzy Osbourne). However, all go by their 1960s pseudonyms.

Cirith Ungol (USA) and Night Demon (USA) play Australia in 2024

For the first time in history world renowned Heavy Metal Legends CIRITH UNGOL will make their debut in Australia for the first and last time in May/June 2024!

Supported by and introducing US heavy metal trio NIGHT DEMON, the pair will hit Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne for one of the most paramount moments in Australian heavy metal history.

Ventura Californias ‘Cirith Ungol’ formed in the 70’s, forging their own brand of hard/progressive rock, only one year after Black Sabbath’s debut birthed the genre.

Considered an early player in both doom and power metal, the band’s obsession with Tolkienic sword-and-sorcery blazed a trail for much of metal as it’s known today. 

After a 25 year hiatus, the band reformed in 2016, taking heavy metal by the throat re-releasing past albums and a new album in 2020 which would gain world-wide attention and respect, instantly signing to Metal Blade Records.

2023 saw the band release their final album Dark parade with a solid line up of players featuring the one and only Tim Baker (Vocals) along with some original and new members of the band including Jim Barraza (Guitars), Robert Garven (Drums), Greg Lindstrom (Guitars) and Jarvis Leatherby (Bass).

Few bands in the history of the heavy metal underground have a story as

remarkable, improbable, or uplifting as that of Cirith Ungol. It is a tale of pioneering

innovation, crushing disappointment, self-imposed exile, populist fervor, and,

ultimately, global redemption.

The band was formed in Ventura, California, in the early 1970s, long before the rigid

tropes and ironclad traditions that define today’s heavy metal genre had taken

shape. There was no rulebook, no template to follow, so Cirith Ungol simply made it

up as they went along, allowing their imaginations to run amok and their creativity

to be their guide. Musically, Cirith Ungol emerged from the 1970’s hard rock /

progressive rock tradition epitomized by the likes of Grand Funk Railroad, Blue

Oyster Cult and Sir Lord Baltimore.

Rather than passively channeling their

influences, the band was driven to forge an altogether heavier, darker, more

apocalyptic sound. According to drummer Robert Garven, even in those early days,

before heavy metal as we know it existed, the band’s burning ambition was to play

“the heaviest metal known to man.” Cirith Ungol’s lyrical approach was profoundly

influenced by the high fantasy literature of J.R.R. Tolkien (from whose Lord of the

Rings opus they derived their name) and Michael Moorcock, fittingly enough

because co-founding members Garven and guitarist Greg Lindstrom first met in a

seventh-grade English literature class.

For years, the fledgling Cirith Ungol (which also included co-founder Jerry Fogle on

guitar and, from 1976 onward, Tim Baker on vocals) practiced in a bedroom at

Garven’s parents’ house. There they honed their musical vision into something

utterly unique and prescient. Baker’s anguished howls from the fiery pits of Hades,

Fogle’s inventive and otherworldly lead guitar work, and Garven’s unorthodox

drumming coalesced into a sound the world had never experienced before. It was

obscure and arcane, mysterious and eccentric, epic and expansive, but most of all

unfailingly, bone-crushingly heavy, dark and doom-filled.


For more than a decade, Night Demon have defiantly flown the flag of traditional heavy metal, unwavering in the face of shifting industry trends and unscarred by global calamities.

The band erupted onto the underground heavy metal scene with a self-titled four-song EP in 2012.  Showcasing a sound forged in a deep-seated passion for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal melded to distinctly American muscle and swagger, and embracing a rigorous touring schedule, Night Demon quickly gained momentum in the USA and Europe.  In January 2015, the band released their first full-length album, Curse of the Damned, which refined the band’s trademark sound and garnered widespread acclaim by fans and critics alike.  To promote the record, Night Demon hit the killing road for the better part of two years, crisscrossing the United States multiple times, touring the European market relentlessly, and even veering off the beaten path with extensive dates in Mexico, South America and Latin America.

These festival slots included Rockhard Sweden, Mexico Metal Fest, Hells Heroes, Keep It True, Up The Hammers, Burning Festival, Rock of Ages and a dozen more!

Now after the one EP and three full length albums, and dozens of massive support slots and festivals across the globe, the band is ready to take on Australia for the first time ever as they share their brand of traditional heavy metal.

It’s not just about the auditory experience; it’s a communion of shared energy and passion with his audience.

With eyes set on Australia, anticipation builds for what promises to be another landmark in his touring journey. Yet, beyond the lights and accolades, at the core of Daniel Deluxe is an artist with an insatiable passion for sound, always pushing the envelope, always seeking the next sonic horizon.
