Band Information

Colossus, now more commonly stylised as COLOSSVS, is an extreme metal band that formed in Melbourne in late 2010. Ed Redclift (ex-Carpathian) was the original vocalist but he was soon replaced by Christopher Tew. Following a busy 2013 that included touring with Palm and Asecretdeath, Colossus toured SE Asia in early 2014, after which Tew was replaced by The Racket announcer Lochlan Watt (ex-Nuclear Summer). Their first album appeared almost immediately and the band played tours with Psycroptic and Birds in a Row and at Hammersonic in Indonesia in early 2015. 2015 was a busy year with a string of tours including with Suffocation and Decapitated, Psycroptic and The Black Dahlia Murder and King Parrot and High Tension. Early in 2016 Colossus played shows during which they performed Unholy in its entirety and in April Watt was hired as Thy Art is Murder's touring vocalist. At the point Tew returned to the band and a few further shows were played including Brewtality in Sydney and Melbourne in 2016. Watt rejoined Colossus at the end of 2016 but the band has done no more.
