Theatrically unchallenged on the live front, Lo! attack with violent precision both on their releases and on stage to make them one of the more exciting and enigmatic heavy acts in modern metal.
With anthems of groove laden fury that touch on topics ranging from gun laws to the ever declining state of politics and our environmental decay, Lo! lash out with venomous anger.
From their high end, enviable and downright disturbing music videos to the lavish art of each physical release, Lo! have a real attention to their craft of chaos and are a band well into their stride of domination. A writhing maniacal front man flanked by 3 killer bandmates committed to pulverising audiences.
Their most concise and aggressive work to date, 3rd album 'Vestigial' (Pelagic Records) has seen the Australian sludge heroes play bills with notable international acts ranging from Anaal Nathrakh to The Black Dahlia Murder, Aborted, Baroness, High on Fire, and Trivium, to national tours with Cult Leader and Amenra.
Lo! have embarked on numerous overseas tours including Europe with Swedish post-metal greats Cult of Luna and German prog-metal veterans The Ocean, and their own headline tours for 'Vestigial' in Europe and Japan.
A festival favourite, Lo! have played Roadburn, Into The Void, Impetus Festival, and Euroblast in Europe, and a solid run of Australian festivals.
"Lo! at this point in their career need no introduction. A sonic assault on the senses, their mixture of hardcore, post-metal and whatever else they feel like goes over particularly well as the crowd is bashed in the face repeatedly by riff after riff of crushing sonic devastation. Frontman Sam Dillion is a particularly menacing figure as he looms, half-naked, sweating over the crowd, screaming into their faces, his eyes pop noticeably out of his head like he is about to pull you apart with his bare hands."
