Australian Progressive Metal/Hard Rock band Age of Emergence release their second EP The War Within Ourselveson.
The bands states: “‘The War Within ourselves’ is the culmination of a years work with new drummer Benn Baxter. It is a reflection or reaction to the current world landscape. We dive deep into the human psyche when humanity is in turmoil due to climate change.”
Age of Emergence formed in the Australian Newcastle region in 2013 by ex-Shambhala members Dean Holmes and Allan Hofer. They teamed up with Order of the Dragon guitarist Matt Neilson. After many free form jam sessions, a set of originals began to take shape. Home recording started and after much practice and tweaking sounds and equipment the first demo was released on Soundcloud. After a year of gigging locally the band recorded their first EP in 2017 and now in 2020 follows up with the new release The War Within Ourselves.
