Welsh ‘Torchwood’ actor Gareth David Lloyd is well-known to Supanova fans: this is his third trip Down Under for the expo… but this time, he’s brought his band!
Gareth is the vocalist for the three-piece progressive metal band ‘Blue Gillespie’, who have a sound that’s loud, tighter than a drum skin, and unapologetically real. Formed in November 2007, they have released two EPs, Cave County 1 and the more acoustic Cave County 2, and two albums, Synesthesia and 2012’s acclaimed Seven Rages of Man. Though they have crafted a sound that is distinctly their own, Blue Gillespie have been influenced by many artists including Meshuggah, Metallica, Tool, Portishead, and Down, and are inspired by music from just about every genre. Blue Gillespie thrives on playing live: interaction with an enthusiastic audience brings their music to life. The band builds strong a two-way connection with their audience, feeding the energy of the gig both on and in front of the stage.
“Captivating” – BrainDamaged
“Highbrow Stuff….A Success.” – Metal Discovery
“As atmospheric and moody as it is towering, heavy and visceral….If you like sophistication as well as ferocity in your music, then rejoice, you’ve just found your new favorite band” – Kerrang
“Thrashing, dirty, beautiful noise that drives itself into your brain and takes over your senses completely” – Push to Fire
“If you want a band who utterly believe in what they are doing and believe in giving it everything, then I urge you, nay, demand that you check out Seven Rages of Man by Blue Gillespie” – This is Not a Scene
“Seven Rages of Man is a Masterpiece” – Cack Blabbeth
“Seven Rages is a stunning masterpiece of lyrical and musical genius that is up there with Pink Floyd’s The Wall, The Who’s Tommy and The Moody Blues Days Of Future Passed!”- Succeed2K
