Shackles is a death/thrash metal band from Sydney, Australia formed in 2000. Shackles formed in the year 2000, though the idea had been circling for a little while before that. There were no grand plans, other than to create songs that drew from the various influences that drove each member of the band. The first full line-up featured in its ranks ex-Erosion bass player (and one-time Minotaur vocalist) Rainer Wischnewski, as well as Ian (vocals), Loony (guitars) and Matt (drums).

The following three years were filled with frustration and a slight lack of direction. Rainer faded from view, drummers came and went, recording sessions failed to eventuate and the only real signs of life were a few party shows that failed to impress anyone - except perhaps breweries and chemical companies. Finally, some semblance of continuity emerged and the band played numerous shows around Sydney. Whilst far from perfect, they at least gave Shackles a level of renown in the local scene.
