Q&A Scene: Ezekiel Ox ~ Superheist

Ezekiel Ox, the third and final singer of Superheist

Tell us about your new single/ tour?

We’re hitting the road to celebrate a brand new chapter in the bands career.  The single has three songs on it, and to be honest we can’t pick a favourite. Why tour?  The world needs Superheist at the moment, energy, power and all heart. This is music to make you move.

What’s your favourite work at this point in time?

The track from our new EP “Got The Bounce” is a massive step forward for the band. Our guitar player dw Norton has taken over engineering and mixing duties and it shows. There’s a lot of love in it, and that track in particular is so aggressive, fresh and well…bouncy!  We’re using samples from hip-hop, Hollywood and twisting and smashing it into a fresh sound.  Wu Tang meets Meshugga.

How would you describe your sound in food form and why?

A smorgasbord.  It’s got it all, it’s huge, and it leaves everyone satisfied.

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote:

One night when me and dw were driving back to the studio in Frankston, we saw a UFO.  It buzzed us and we had to pull the car over and wait for five minutes while it hovered above us, darting back and forth.  It looked like a massive ball of light from a distance, but when it got closer you could see the tech on the side of it. The aliens are coming, and it seems that they have their radios tuned into Superheist’s new shit.  That what we were playing in the car at the time.

What, or who, inspires you?

The songs we haven’t written yet.  The idea that the next thing we do will be closer to where we are right now, and then we’ll need to write something else anyway.  The fact of my impending death also.

Which song do you wish you wrote?

It’s a tie between Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony and “Bring The Rukkus” by Wu-Tang Clan.

What’s next for you?

Finish writing our next album, which is called “MAMMOTH”, then take it to the punters live on stage.  This one’s going to be special, the first time Superheist have had the same singer on two albums!

What’s your scene?

Metal, hip-hop.

SUPERHEIST release RAISE HELL’ AAA Side + Announce Tour

After a 13 year hiatus ARIA nominated, Australian metal outfit SUPERHEIST are back and one thing is for sure, they are here to RAISE HELL.

The band who have achieved gold record status and previously toured with rap god EMINEM are coming in hot. Superheist have delivered a heavy hitting and uncompromising AAA Side in a brazen display of what is arguably the band’s best work to date.  Kicking off with ‘RAISE HELL’ a hectic four minutes of in your face, thought provoking nu metal. Followed by ‘GOT THE BOUNCE’ an explosive mix of Wu Tang meets Messhuga perfectly walking the line of Hip Hop and Metal.  Last but very not least ‘FULLY LOADED’, a punchy and to the point track showcasing Ox’s versatile and powerful vocals.

In it’s history Superheist has seen a slew of famous faces, but the current line up is your ultimate rock n roll fantasy league. Enter Ezekiel Ox of FULL SCALE and MAMMAL fame, John Sankey of THE DEVIL YOU KNOW and DEVOLVED complimented by returning bassist Si Durrant IN:EXTREMIS and ACID WOLF Keir Gotcher INSOLENCE and SNOT on second guitar and of course Superheist stalwart and founding member dw Norton.
