A band known for their passionately fierce and ear crushing live shows, Sumeru’s onstage energy is exerted with an almost fanatical dedication that it verges on a cult-like rite of sonic exorcism and visceral upheaval. Add in the long-crafted musicianship of each member of this Sydney 5 piece, their ability to peel subconscious layers off of their audiences was apparent since their inception in 2009.
Having shared the stage with foreign imports and domestic legends such YOB, Church of Misery, Torche, Nick Oliveri (back up band & support), Windhand, Nails, Blood Duster, Beastwars, IEXIST and Lo!, Sumeru now stand firmly grounded in the Australian heavy music underground as a defining force of pure riff fury and indomitable low-end groove.
After having successfully toured new release 'Summon Destroyer' across the country earlier in 2019, the band is focusing on writing new album material with a new vocalist and will pop up for a number of shows later this year along with a tour announce in early 2020.
REVIEW + ACLAIM
"An extraordinarily aggressive sophomore full length record constructed to defy definition and thwart expectation" AMNplify
“Sumeru now stand firmly grounded in the Australian heavy music underground as a defining force of pure riff fury and indomitable low-end groove" SLUDGELORD
"Sumeru is an Australian band out of Sydney that pretty much corners the market on Metal genres. Aptly, and effectively melding Heavy Metal, Doom, Stoner, Sludge, Black, Groove, and even elements of Thrash into their crushing sound." Metal Temple
