Inspired by their strong musical bond Jonathon Barwick and Tom Brockman created, in 2004, what is now known as Taberah. The band;s sound and live performance is derived from a vast range of influences including the traditional heavy metal stylings of Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath, the rock 'n' roll swagger of AC/DC and Thin Lizzy mixed with the over the top, tongue in cheek theatrics of Queen and The Darkness, all with a slightly modern and original twist.

Taberah quickly became a staple act in the Tasmanian live music scene in 2006 and have now become one of Tasmania's top exports around Australia in any musical genre.

In early 2011, Taberah blitzed a nationwide vote then were hand picked by Lemmy Kilmister himself to open for Motorhead on the Sydney leg of their 2011 Australian tour.

Other milestones include sharing the stage all around Australia with high profile international and national acts such as[L]Paul Di'Anno[/L] (ex-Iron Maiden), Tim 'Ripper' Owens (ex-Judas Priest/Iced Earth/Yngwie Malmsteen), Blessed by a Broken Heart, LORD, Psycroptic, Black Majesty, Steve Grimmett (ex-[L]Grim Reaper[/L]/Lionsheart/Onslaught), Elm Street, Darker Half and many more.

2011 saw the band record and release their debut album, The Light of Which I Dream, with acclaimed producer Joe Haley of Psycroptic.The record is a chronicle of the band's early years of blood, sweat, beers and tears on the national live circuit. The album earned Taberah worldwide acclaim and immediately, excitement began growing for the band's follow up.

Taberah spent 2012 recording that follow up entitled Necromancer, working with Theo "Scorpion" Batchelor in a studio set up within Jonathon and Myles' home during Tasmania's coldest winter months. The band then entrusted Joe Haley to once again handle mixing duties.

After spending 2011 and 2012 touring Australia relentlessly, Taberah came to the attention of Australian metal icon Stu Marshall (ex-Dungeon, Death Dealer, Empires of Eden) and he was keen to help out anyway he could with the album and the band in general.This lead to Stu adding his mastering wizardry to Necromancer, and helping the band ink a deal with German promotion titan Rock N Growl Promotions, who are currently shopping the album to industry figures.

Stu gladly goes on record as saying "Necromancer is one of the best Australian metal releases in the last 10 years".

Taberah continue deliver a show that's full of fun energy, theatrics, wandering solos and plenty of crowd interaction. This earning the quartet a solid reputation everywhere of being a "must see" live band, capable of headlining big shows or adding incomparable spice as a quality support. « hide
