Dyssidia, Wallet Inspector, Sines & Ecdysis

Fri 12 May @ 8:00 pm

Local progressive metal heavyweights Dyssidia are teaming up with the mind bending instrumental prog metal merchants Wallet Inspector from Melbourne, as well as fellow Adelaidians Sines for two special shows in Adelaide and Melbourne. Joining them for the Adelaide show at Enigma Bar are extreme metal newcomers Ecdysis to ensure the night is kicked off with an intense energy.

Dyssidia have been described as akin to peacocks fornicating – beautiful, but violent and unsettling. They have also been described as what one of those OG classical wig wearin’ boys would sound like if they were alive today and had a thirst for the heavy.

Regardless of how they are described, Dyssidia have been creating thought-provoking progressive metal over their 10+ year career which has borne 3 EPs and a full length album, 2020’s Costly Signals, with the recording of the follow up album currently in progress.

They have supported main influences Opeth, Sikth and Between the Buried and Me to name a few, as well as toured nationally with the likes of Leprous and Caligula’s Horse.

Melbourne based 4-piece instrumental group ‘Wallet Inspector’ blend many elements to create a unique progressive metal sound borrowing elements from technical death metal, jazz fusion and funk. Making their live debut in 2021 the band has supported acts including The Omnific, James Norbert Ivanyi, Stephen Taranto and Whoretopsy. Wallet Inspector are currently preparing to enter the studio to record a debut album set for release in 2023.

Sines is a five-piece alternative/progressive rock band based in Adelaide, South Australia. Their sound is comprised of ambient guitar layers, hard hitting drum and bass riffs, and soulful vocals to create a mix of emotional power ballads and heavy hard-rock tracks. Their influences include Karnivool, Deftones, Evanescence, and Northlane.
