Biography

Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Heifer’s new album, titled “The Judas Belt”, is now available in Australia, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

They made a brief visit to Europe in 2006 and, after only two weeks and four shows, managed to attract a small but enthusiastic following with some intense, legendary live shows. It was obvious to all who saw them why they had built a cult following in their home country.

As a result of the 2006 tour, the band attracted label interest in Europe which led to the album being released there in July 2007. They have just returned from another very successful tour (June and July 2007) in support of the album release.

HEIFER have been described as an alternative/metal band, but there’s so much more to them than that. Whilst they cite influences such as Helmet, AC/DC and System of a Down among many others, what they actually produce on “The Judas Belt” is a style all their own - heavy guitars with virtuosic drums and rasping vocals, interspersed with moments of melodic instrumental and vocal lines, and some odd time signatures. As acknowledged by Australian heavy music website “Faster Louder”:

“To their credit, their sound is nothing like the predictable retro-rock you’ll hear ‘representing’ Australia overseas or on the country’s ‘pop’ radios - HEIFER are an original band with a punch to pack and something real to say, as shown by ‘The Judas Belt’, their first full-length album.” – www.fasterlouder.com.au
