Band information

Apostasy was an old school death metal band from Sydney. Dave Colless was more or less the mainstay/ringleader and despite his involvement with Grungeon, not to mention Sparky's role in Tscabeze, the band existed in some form or another right throughout the 1990s. Sean Burnett was the drummer on their 1992 demo 'Pulse of a Dying Race' following the death of original drummer Steve Hidler. Shane Stewart was with Objective Zero for a brief period in 1998.
