Have you got your seat belts on tight? It’s going to be a wild ride!!!
Could you ever imagine being at an event featuring bands like Motley Crue, Manowar, Europe, Megadeth, Motorhead and W.A.S.P. all at the one place? This would be a dream come true for many fans. Now could you even ever imagine actually performing at such a huge event? Well this dream will come true for a group of young Australian boys.
From the team that bring you Motion Pictures of bands like THE POODLES, MANOWAR, RHAPSODY and various feature films have announced an exciting new project. Majestic Film Australia and Metal Warriors Pty. Ltd. in collaboration with their Hollywood partners at Morphius Film have announced that they will be producing a documentary style feature length movie highlighting the journey of a young Heavy Metal band from Melbourne, Australia called MYSTERY.
‘It’s not easy being young’ said bass player Josh. ‘Because of alcohol laws, we can’t play licensed clubs because we are just kids so all of our performances have to be at special venues where there are no age restrictions’ explained guitarist Kris ‘like our headliner show on the main stage at Federation Square in the City Centre of Melbourne’ added drummer Tony. ‘It means that we are isolated from the rest of the scene so everything we have done so far has been to a diverse audience that are mostly our own age outside of the regular Metal scene’ Rocky stated. Fortunately, the band has had the opportunity to be mentored by legendary names of the Australian and International scene.
This movie will highlight these four devoted young musicians aged fourteen and fifteen years of age from the territory that brought you AC/DC embarking on the ultimate Rock journey of a lifetime.
A film team will be travelling with the band and following them through their trials and tribulations across the globe and their first World Tour starting in Bucharest, Romania.
MYSTERY will perform their first International show at the huge OST FEST in Romania on June 16, 2012. The young fourteen and fifteen year old members are stoked to be a part of such an amazing line-up. ‘It’s all so surreal! This is better then winning the lottery to be at OST FEST with Manowar, Megadeth’ Josh, Tony and Kris quickly adding ‘Europe, Motley Crue, W.A.S.P’. Rocky notes ‘even Overkill and Dimmu Borgir’.
Frontman and lead guitarist Rocky also stated: ‘We are so thankful to the team at OST FEST for having faith in us and giving us the opportunity to perform in Romania with our superheroes. I know we are very young but we promise to bring you some real thunder from dOWNuNDER. I heard about how amazing the Romanian fans are and the band is really looking forward to performing our first show outside of Australia in Bucharest’. www.ostfest.ro
The band also made the following statement on their official website, ‘To all the people of Romania and all those travelling to OST FEST, we can’t wait to travel all the way from Australia and hit that stage to perform for you in Romania. See you there and Rock On!’ Rocky, Kris, Josh, Tony of MYSTERY.
OST FEST and Romania will be highlighted on the movie about MYSTERY, which will take them across Europe, The United States and Japan before they return home to Australia.
Currently the band is putting on the finishing touches to their album, which will include some very special guests soon to be announced. Recorded with engineers Jesse Duerkop and Stu Marshall, the debut album by MYSTERY is nearing completion. Frontman Rocky is currently recording the vocals with Mick Jelinic (Mortification, Terraphobia) at 454 Studio. The albums final mix and master will be completed during the end of April at Frontier Studios with Stu Marshall (Empires Of Eden, Dungeon) at the helm.
The artwork has already been completed by the famous South American artist from Colombia, Felipe Machado Franco known for his work for LucasFilm Ltd., Christopher Lee, Rhapsody Of Fire and Blind Guardian).
The album will not be released until after the World Tour but the first single will be launched and made available to the public on May 25 in conjunction with their big show at the MORELAND CIVIC CENTRE (Coburg Town Hall) in Melbourne, Australia. The concert will double as a farewell show before their World Tour. Further details of their Melbourne concert will follow.
It may also be a good time to point out that the band will also be doing a music video for each of their original songs, which will also be correlated into a movie. The music videos will be shot in places like the home region of Dracula in Transylvania Romania. Lights, camera, action, there will also be a music video shot in Hollywood, California in The USA and under the rising Sun in Japan. All of the music videos will also be correlated into a movie.
There is not much the members of MYSTERY are not doing! The boys have not permitted their young age to get in the way of their dreams and passion for Metal music as they prepare to spread their wings across the globe.
Hats off to these young High School boys whose determination is getting them to major places. ‘For all my years at school, It has not been easy for me having to put up with bullies telling me to cut my hair and putting down Metal, but they have never stopped me and they never will! That inspired my writing and this journey is our call to arms! We are calling upon all the Metal fans across the World to show us their support! Yes, we are young but our age proves that Rock music will live on and that Heavy Metal will never die!’ exclaimed Rocky.
STOP PRESS: A new European date will be announced for Easter! It’s going to be sweet, so don’t eat too much chocolate!
