Hailing from Hobart, Tasmania, Separatist are a five piece Death Metal outfit. Weilding their own impressively versatile style of playing, they've been described as Technical Death metal, Blackened-Death and everything inbetween.
Separatist, having recently released their debut album "The Motionless Apocalypse", are currently working hard at expanding their fanbase around Australia and constructing a heavier profile for themselves within the metal industry.
Having formed five years ago, Separatist have been through many style and line-up changes; with roots in Nu-Metal/Metalcore, over the years they have transgressed past genres to become what they are today. Striking back with a new and improved line-up with the inclusion of Sam Dishington on vocals, Matt Carter on drums, Luke Ranson on bass and both James Brady and David Gilbert on rythm/lead guitars. Having emerged from their recording process they have supported major international bands such as "Skinless" and "Dismember" and renowned Australian bands "Alarum" and "I Killed the Prom Queen", as well as headlining the Chaos A.C.T. festival in Canberra and playing alongside many up and coming Australian bands in their home cities, such as Asphyxia from Adelaide and The Ocularis Infernum from Melbourne.
Since the release of their album in early May, they have been a frequent feature in Australian music magazines and radio stations including Melbourne's Sauce and Buzz Magazines, Metalobsession.com, 3RRR station, Canberra's BME magazine, PBSFM and Adelaides Three D FM.
Their accomplishments are only the initial steps on the road that lies ahead of Separatist in their musical career, with the support of their booking agent Welkin Entertainment, and a pending contract with Adelaides Truth Inc. Records, there is nothing that will stand in the way of their metal onslaught...
