Upon forming in 2003, Elm Street has been spreading their own brand of traditional heavy metal to masses across Australia. The rawness of the band wearing influences on their sleeve meant crowds were instantly attracted to the band when they visited each point of the country. Shows with Australia's leading bands The Angels, Vanishing Point, Black Majesty and The Poor saw the band adapt quickly to a big stage and a roaring large crowd.

By 2010 the band had not only established a strong following across the nation but a style which saw them mix the best parts of their heavy influences. In September 2010 the band entered the studio with recruited co-producer and engineer Ermin Hamidovic (Eye of the Enemy, In Malice's Wake, Orpheus) from Systematic Productions to record their debut release. It would be April 2011 which welcomed the world to Barbed Wire Metal, the album which allowed Elm Street to not only extend their exposure further interstate but to a broader scale internationally. This was in help of high credits on the album such as mastering at Panic Room Studios in Sweden and artwork by the legendary Ed Repka, responsible for Megadeth's infamous album covers such as Rust in Peace and Peace Sells... but Who's Buying? among others.

The band was now sent on a rollercoaster ride across Australia with shows accompanying acts Mortal Sin, Blood Duster and US thrashers Toxic Holocaust. As the crowds were building, so was the attention from overseas labels and in a short amount of time the album was re-released in the USA by Stormspell Records in July 2011.

With the a stable record label now delivering the album to further audiences Elm Street was now set on location to record their debut film clip to the title track of the album. The video clip for ‘Barbed Wire Metal’ was released in September 2011.

With such a positive response from the Stormspell release and the film clip now circulating the globe through a frenzy, Elm Street was upgraded to a bigger opportunity signing with German based label Massacre Records in October 2011, where the album was now being distributed worldwide a month later. Reaching to audiences all over Europe and reviews of the album now pouring in from magazines such as Metal Hammer, Terrorizer and Decibel Magazine, along with countless webzines, Elm Street was given the opportunity to embark on their first overseas tour in support of the album during May 2012.

‘Barbed Wire Metal Across Europe’ would see the band extend their trip from May 2012 to November 2012 playing countless shows across Europe and the UK with acts Warbringer, Gama Bomb, Hell, Cauldron and headline shows at Europe's prestige venues including a special one-off showcase at London's Crobar.

Returning from Europe the band has set focus to the next release and to take the journey that next step further. Writing is currently in process for a new album and the band foresees a release in early 2014. « hide
