Biography

Superheist is an Australian / band, formed in 1993 in Melbourne by guitarist DW Norton. An early line-up featuring Norton, Rod McLeod (vocals), Anthony Donath (bass) and Sean Pentecost (drums) started out playing along similar lines to Napalm Death but by 1996 Superheist was established as one of Australia’s first successful bands.

The band’s two full length albums, The Prize Recruit (2001) and Identical Remote Controlled Reactions (2002) charted in the Top 20 on the Australian Albums Charts. Five of the band’s single releases also made the Top 40. Seemingly at the top of their game, the band disappeared from view for six months at the end of 2003 before announcing a split early 2004, with Norton forming a new band called Walk The Earth.

In late 2005, Norton announced via a forum on the band’s official website that he was working on new Superheist material with bass player Drew Dedman and drummer Matt Skitz.

    Get A Life could have been a big hit. It totally has that same potential as 7 Years.

    Definetely the best Australian Nu metal band! They were sick. If they had been Americans, they would have been as big as Korn or Limp Bizkit! I'm pretty sure of that.

    Seriously Shano its probably best to leave rumors just where you found them. I'm not sure if you know how royalties work or not but here goes, Record labels lend money to bands to record and for promotions ect. The band then has to pay it back + interest. Superheists albums would have cost 500k-1mill, at $10 a cd royalties that would be at least 50,000 albums per album released before any of the band would see any money. The prize Recruit sold about 16500.. I think you'll find too many ego's and in fighting killed this band.

    if the rumours are true, DW destroyed the band by literally calculating how much each band member would earn from royalties by their specific contribution per song, which is why Rod left so early on and why some band members almost got pissed off into leaving. when Joey Biro joined it all turned to shit. 7 Years as a single was ok but their live shows were so shitty in comparison.

    Chrome Matrix (and what I've heard of Apocalypse) rules.

    Spunkalish: Seriously....? They weren't exactly good grind... and 8 mile high is such a creative release. The change was sure the right one in my book.
