Music has touched millions of lives over time.

It holds the power of completely changing moods, reflect our deepest feelings towards an idea, and move us all in a single direction.

Whilst our ancestors had to travel great lengths in considerable uncertainty just to take part in celebrations, things have certainly evolved.

These days, at the distance of a screen, there is no excuse in ensuring we can find exactly what we want when we want it.

With a multitude of Music Festivals taking place often much closer than you may expect, what if there was a simply great way to know exactly what’s going on at any given moment?

Festivals This Weekend provides the perfect answer to that exact question!

Canberra-based metallers Deathbeds are making their mark on Australia’s heavy community with the release of their new single “What’s Yours Is Mine And What’s Mine Is Mine“. The new single was accompanied by the announcement of the six-piece’s debut album entitled ‘Sinner‘. Inspired by the Seven Deadly Sins, the concept album was released Friday 13 March and distributed through Collision Course Records!

“What’s Yours Is Mine And What’s Mine Is Mine” narrates the theme of greed and was mixed and mastered by Scottie Simpson (PolarisAlpha WolfGravemind) and tracked at Colossal Tracks Studios (She Cries WolfDays Like These). The single begins with an ear pricking melodic riff that leads the way into the wall of sound that ensues. Taking inspiration from fellow Australian heavyweights Make Them Suffer, Deathbeds utilise Maddison ‘Kit’ Samin‘s soaring female vocals and subtle keys to juxtapose against the driving chaos of the single. 

Sinner is a concept record, taking its theme from the Seven Deadly Sins. The overarching storyline follows a priest abusing the sins in order of pride, greed, gluttony, sloth, lust, wrath and envy and ultimately winding up a heretic by the final track. As is with “What’s Yours Is Mine And What’s Mine Is Mine”, the album is mixed and mastered by Simpson, tracked at Colossal Tracks Studios with writing credits tied to both Deathbeds and Misstiq, the metal keys queen renowned for ‘making metal pretty’.

Formed in 2015 by guitarist Anthony Hyde, vocalist David Oliver and bassist Marc Beresford, Deathbeds dedicated three years to mastering their craft before they debuted their live show and their current lineup in 2018 consisting of Anthony, David and Marc alongside new members Kit Samin on keys and vocals, Sam Moloney on drums and Benjamin Poulsen on guitar. November 2018 rolled around shortly after and saw the release of the ‘Death‘ EP which was recorded by Calum Johnstone of Honest Crooks.

Previous track “Biggest Sin Of All” is the sixth track on ‘Sinner’ and was released in March 2019 as the first taste of the forthcoming album and was received with open arms. Hysteria Mag praised the single in saying that: “Biggest Sin Of All introduces a style of narrative not easy to execute at the best of times, let alone in a debut album–Deathbeds, however, pull it off superbly, so far“. Behind The Scene raved that “this is exactly what I wanted from Deathbeds and they have delivered everything and more. If this an accurate representation of their concept album ‘Sinner’, then I am very, VERY excited for this! Spotify followed suit and immediately added the track to the Homegrown + Heavy editorial playlist alongside a plethora of Australian favourites, with the track almost at 50,000 streams.
