It’s been well over three years since the riff crushing, Metalcore godfathers ATREYU last hit …
HORSEHEAD are Australian rock royalty. Pure and simple. Spawned as grunge was kicking into overdrive HORSEHEAD rose to the top by bucking the trend and producing high octane stadium rock infused with 70’s overtones and with a gentle nod to their current day contemporaries.

If you were lucky enough to see Melbourne’s HORSEHEAD sometime between 1992 and 2000 there are chances, you’re a ‘Horseheadonist’ an affectionate term for the band’s most passionate fans. As Rock Historian Ian McFarlane (Author of The Encyclopedia Of Australian Rock and Pop) notes: “Everything was delivered with great force and conviction.’’
From showcase gigs for Madonna in the US, meeting in the studio with Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, The Cult), and Sylvia Massy (Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers) to working with the legendary Australian producer Tony Cohen, it was a remarkable trip and one not to be forgotten by the band or their loyal fanbase.
The band also shared management in the U.S. with Kiss, and toured with Metallica, Live, Alice Cooper, The Angels and Midnight Oil. Add to this; three acclaimed albums – 1993’s self-titled set, Horsehead, 1996’s Onism and 1999’s Goodbye Mothership – and one EP, 1997’s The Golden Cow Collection was all wrapped up in a whirlwind but highly successful career.
