PLAGUE 9’s debut EP ‘Mr Ass’ is out now! The Australian traditional heavy metal newcomers from Adelaide have just released this, their debut EP. ‘Mr Ass’ is a good mix of thrash and more traditional style heavy metal riffs. Drawing influence from bands such as Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera, Iron Maiden and also Jeff Loomis, Marco Sfogli and Andy James… there is sure to be something for every headbanging metal junkie.
The EP’s artwork was created by DUSAN MARKOVIC, who has worked with bands like Dragony, Mystic Prophecy, and Dragonheart.
Formed by rhythm guitarist/singer Devon Smith and bassist John Hopf in 2017, PLAGUE 9 recorded their first song ‘Stuck in Hell’ for the release on the Metal United Down Under Vol 1 compilation. Since then lead guitarist David Hone has jumped on board bringing his very unique playing style and blistering speed taking the songs into a new dimension.
