1) IMMERSION is an unassuming female fronted Melbourne-based four piece original rock band. Don’t let their demure demeanor fool you - IMMERSION’s sound is heavy and dynamic yet extremely infectious, and springs from a unique blend of big guitar sounds and driving rhythms. The development of IMMERSION’s sound can be partly attributed to the influences consumed regularly in their staple rock diet, which includes big helpings of international acts such as the Foo Fighters and Tool, and lashings of local rock acts such as the Superjesus, Full Scale and Karnivool.
IMMERSION was formed from the remnants of Perth rock act Aurakil. Aurakil began in 2000, and in 2001 they released their debut EP entitled “IMMERSION”. Having conquered the Perth music scene, Aurakil set their sights on a new challenge - the big city of Melbourne. The move in 2003 presented a chance for the band to re-form, re-brand and re-label and consequently, IMMERSION was born. IMMERSION has since seen a couple of members come and go, but the current line-up is its strongest yet.
IMMERSION have earned their stripes supporting a range of rock heavyweights on the East and West coasts including the Cruel Sea, Sunk Loto, Karnivool, Subtruck and The Fuzz. IMMERSION have recently been busy performing around the local Melbourne scene and that, combined with their involvement in initiatives such as Freeza and The Push is winning them new fans, keeping rock alive at the grass roots level and making it accessible for all ages.
SO WHAT MAKES IMMERSION ANY DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHER BANDS OUT THERE CHASING THE DREAM?
When you see IMMERSION live, you can expect something a little different to the usual guitar based rock act. IMMERSION’s individual sound comes from hook laden rhythm guitar riffs, melodic lead lines, driving bass and a solid, hard-hitting rhythm section combined with a powerful female voice. A small taste of IMMERSIONs uncompromising yet appealing style will leave any punter wanting more.
2) As the official date of the beginning of Immersion’s activity we can consider the July 2008. It was only then that we met on our first rehearsal. After few months of constant searching the bassist, Yabollo has joined us. He played with us for 2 years and was subsituted by Łukasz. Our common aim become creating particular and original melodic death metal. However, as for each of us has his own influences and each of us was brought up listening to slightly different genre of music, it would be really hard to categorize us anyhow. After long-anticipated stabilization finally our work took real wings! In a 3 years time we’ve menaged to write over 15 own songs and to play almost 20 gigs as for now. We approach music with a great passion and do our best to deliver good quality music, hoping soon to record some in a studio
