Since their inception in 2010, Hadal Maw have fast procured a stature as a benchmark for creating new perspectives on heavy music. Emerging onto the Australia live metal scene in late 2012 with their debut single, "Shadow Caste" followed by extensive touring, they steadily amassed a dedicated following, culminating in 2014 with the release of their debut album "Senium"; a revitalising take on the technical death metal genre. Putting song writing, groove and creativity at the core of their ethos in place of sterile technicality and sheer brutality, Senium was met with acclaim from fans and critics alike.
"Hadal Maw are very much the contemporary and forward-thinking metal force" - Metal Hammer
After launching their debut album, the band continued taking their music around the country, finding themselves sharing the stage with the likes of Decapitated, Suffocation, Ne Obliviscaris, Psycroptic, Beyond Creation, King Parrot, Aborted and many more.
"A monolith: a towering pillar of death metal and atmosphere that swallows the listener whole" - HeavyBlogIsHeavy.com
2016 yielded vocalist Sam Dillon entering the fold. His ferocious rasp and expansive palette of sounds lent itself perfectly to the band's newfound musical direction, producing colourful, unorthodox lyrics and unparalleled aggression both in his vocals and on stage performance.
"Olm represents a seismic shift for Hadal Maw. It’s an intelligent, flawlessly-executed body of work… an outstanding example of modern technical death metal that exceeds all the necessary quality hallmarks” - Heavy Magazine
2017 saw Hadal Maw release "Olm" through EVP Recordings (Psycroptic, King Parrot, Behemoth), displaying their inevitable breaking away from death metal and growing towards their ongoing desire to produce unique, meaningful works instead of replicas. With its sprawling atmosphere, simultaneously crushing and beautifully twisted guitars and amorphous drumming, "Olm" saw Hadal Maw its voice as a valuable contributor to the art form of heavy music.
“With “Olm”, the band has proven yet again that they have a unique voice in the tech-death sphere…Olm follows its own muse at all times instead of following the pack” – Metalinjection.net
In 2018, the wealth of experience and toil in their creative pursuit have coalesced into Charlatan, an effort to drive the darkest elements of their practice to the forefront of their sound and realize a vision of creating the most oppressive sound in the genre.
