2011 – present (7 years)
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Orsome Welles are a band that defy classification. An unconventional merge of progressive and heavy, overlaid with an early 20th century panache; pounding grooves, infused with intricate instrumentality and raw uncaged power.
Their avant-garde live show, exemplified by their musical ferociously offset by the soulful, soaring vocals of enigmatic frontman Michael Stowers is a sight to behold.
Since arriving on the scene in 2014 with their 'Erth News Bulletin' EP, Orsome Welles have received praise from all areas of international heavy scene. They have supported global heavyweights such as Trivium (USA), Seether (South Africa), Orphaned Land (Israel) and The Ocean (Germany), and played with the best of the best of the burgeoning Australian prog-rock heavy scene including Twelve Foot Ninja, Ne Obliviscaris, Caligula’s Horse, Voyager, and more.
Orsome Welles ended 2016 on a major high, touring nationally with fellow Wild Thing Presents comrades Circles, and appearing at the sold out Progfest (following Progfest appearances in 2013 & 2014) in Melbourne where they were a major crowd favourite, receiving rave reviews.
