Band Information

Formed in Brisbane in 2009 from the remnants of Empyrean, Function Cease and Apex Null, The Schoenberg Automaton quickly devloped a striking and fearsome technical/experimental death metal assault that quickly came to the national attention. Interstate appearances at shows like the Metal Forge Festival in Melbourne and Progfest established their reputation. Colin Cadell was forced to leave the band for medical reasons during 2012 but the band found Jake Gerstle and completed the album Vela that was released in early 2013 to wild acclaim. In February 2013 they opened the show at the Brisbane Soundwave Festival and toured nationally in April and May 2013. Another national tour with A Million Dead Birds Laughing and Aeon of Horus took place in October 2013 and the band also appeared on Northlane's mid-2014 Australian tour.
