Opting to skip the demo/EP phase, Perth metal act ThunderBlood have burst out of the gates with ‘Crocodile Eggs’, the debut single engineered and mixed by Simon Mitchell [Chaos Divine] and mastered by Forrester Savell [Karnivool, Make Them Suffer, Animals As Leaders] ). Along with this unique single, the band has delivered one of the most dynamic and creative music videos to ever come out of Western Australia, directed by award-winning filmmaker Peter Renzullo.

Forged deep within the earth’s crust over unfathomable aeons, a rare composite of unique elements erupts into our midst!! Perth-based metal four-piece ThunderBlood is comprised of former members of Extant, Tabryss and Reaper’s Riddle – now metamorphosed into a heavy ass band which stubbornly defies any further classification.
An enigmatic presence in the Perth metal scene for several years, ThunderBlood has made a serious impression on those who have experienced their theatrical and entertaining live shows and powerful, meaty riffs. With a broad stylistic range, groovy rhythms, hooky licks and catchy choruses, this band presents a solid and hard-hitting metal sound with intense and engaging live performances.
Having played around Perth since 2019, including Metal United Down Under (2021), Hornography and supporting interstate touring band Hidden Intent (SA), ThunderBlood has slowly but surely amassed a curiosity and an intrigue around their unusual style which stands out from their peers and refuses to fit neatly into any generic box.
It’s full steam ahead for this Aussie metallic quartet, and the impending release of a full length album marks a point in music history, beyond which there is no return!!
