Nothing are ready for Heavy Mash Up

How would you describe your sound and how did you come to it? Our sound combines elements of prog, black metal and death metal surrounded by groove; it carries a distinct weight that is rare for a three-piece. Our style is a melting pot of our influences and the chemistry that we’ve developed from playing together without limiting our songwriting to fit into any specific formula.

What have you learned/taken from touring with bands like Amon Amarth and FFDP? That you only get one chance to make a first impression on a new city or audience so you have to take care of yourself, particularly when playing back to back shows. Stay hydrated, get plenty of rest, don’t overindulge, and leave everything on stage. Leave your mark.

What are you most excited for at Heavy Mash Up? To be part of such a diverse lineup. Heavy music has a very broad spectrum and we have so many different sounding bands in Melbourne it’s always exciting to be a part of a night that combines and celebrates different styles. 

What do you love about making music? It’s the ultimate freedom of expression and creativity. It’s empowering, cathartic, escapist, and consuming all at once. To forget about the daily grind and the petty grievances of life and create something with your bandmates is an amazing feeling and to then be able to share that with an audience is incredibly rewarding. 

Nothing will perform as part of Heavy Mash Up, taking over Last Chance Rock & Roll Bar on Friday September 7. The lineup also features In Deception, Escarion, and more.
