Truly a band out of time, the Australian power trio Wolfmother were conceived in 2000 -- about 30 years too late, consideringthat themusicians' psychedelic brand of proto-heavy metal sounded similar to the late-'60s/early-'70s craft of Blue Cheer andBlack Sabbath.Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Andrew Stockdale, bassist/organist Chris Ross, and drummer Myles Heskett,Wolfmother took the initiative ofrecording a four-track demo in 2004 for the purpose of booking shows. So sterling were theresults, however, that the band soon found itself re-recording the material for official release via the local label ModularRecords. A second EP, Dimensions, appeared in 2006, and Wolfmothermade the jump to the majors in early 2006, courtesy of anAmerican distribution deal with Modular through Interscope Records. A self-titledalbum debut appeared in May and reached theTop 40, resulting in a trophy for Best Hard Rock Performance at the 2007 Grammy Awards. Co-founders Ross and Heskett leftthe group the following year, leaving Stockdale and new members Ian Peres (bass, keyboards), Aidan Nemeth(guitar), and DaveAtkins (drums) to carry the torch with 2009's Cosmic Egg. « hide
