We are ORSOME WELLES
Based out of Melbourne, Australia.
An unconventional merge of progressive and heavy, overlaid with an early 20th century panache; pounding grooves infused with intricate instrumentality and raw uncaged power.
In other words, yes, their show will blow your mind.
The group’s ferociously powerful live approach in tandem with the soulful, soaring vocals of enigmatic frontman, Michael Stowers, is a sight to behold.
Their avant-garde show has garnered praise from luminaries of the international heavy scene, seeing them support the likes of TRIVIUM (USA), SEETHER (South Africa), ORPHANED LAND (Israel), THE OCEAN (Germany), and Australia’s TWELVE FOOT NINJA, NE OBLIVISCARIS, CALIGULA'S HORSE, VOYAGER and CIRCLES. In addition, ORSOME WELLES have been hand-picked to perform at noteworthy festivals, such as PROGFEST and Heavy Mag’s BREWTALITY.
ORSOME WELLES have gone from strength to strength in recent times, releasing their debut EP ‘Erth News Bulletin’ (2014) and single 'Swim' (2015) to much acclaim from critics and fans alike. With a new release scheduled for early 2017, this thrilling group are destined for bigger things to come.
