Hailing from the birthplace of Heavy Metal, Axis are a new, midlands-based 5 piece rock outfit who hope to carry on the legacy of such heavy metal greats as Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, while also, bringing the genre kicking and screaming into the 21st century with an infusion of the musical lessons learned over the last twenty years. Punk, goth and progressive rock are all combined into a sound that, whilst remaining true to its Heavy Metal roots, combines elements from all the musics that we love into something that is fresh and contemporary. Most of all though, Axis want to bring back a level of showmanship (and fun!) that we feel has been missing from most bands throughout the last decade. We hope to pay homage to the music that has inspired us so much over the years, all the bands who have stood by their fans and done their own thing, regardless of passing trends or what the media said was cool that week. Hopefully, this is gonna be a lot of fun for all!
