The story so far
Triaxis are a heavy metal band from the South West. Formed in 2006, Triaxis self-released their debut full-length album 'Key To The Kingdom' in 2009 to critical acclaim, including plaudits from Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, Zero Tolerance as well as coverage and praise from many leading music websites. They have also made numerous radio appearances, including airplay on Bruce Dickinson's BBC Rock Show.
After headline grabbing sets at Hammerfest (2011 & 2013) and Bloodstock Open Air (2009, 2012 & 2015), the band signed to Rocksector Records in 2012 to release their second album, 'Rage and Retribution' (recorded at Foel Studios and engineered by James Stephenson of Stymphalian Productions) once again to critical acclaim. Triaxis have continued to perform extensively across the UK and Europe.
Their first promotional video, for the single 'Black Trinity' (Dir: Adam Stevenson, ASAV), was released in 2013 and has since been nominated for a Pure Rawk Award, alongside a growing number of award nominations for the band members themselves.
2015 saw Triaxis release their third studio album 'Zero Hour' (produced by Glyn Williams, James Stephenson of Stymphalian Productions and Scott Atkins of GrindStone Studios), funded through a PledgeMusic campaign, which achieved 100% of its target in nine hours via unprecedented support from Triaxis fans. This album held the band's second music video in the opening track 'Liberty'(Dir: Adam Stevenson, ASAV), and was followed up by the band's first lyric video, created by Andy Pilkington at Very Metal Art - the mournful 'Lest We Forget'.
In 2017 Triaxis hit the ground running with a new line up, continuing to expand their fan base and cement their place in the metal genre.

MATT - GUITAR
Matt first picked up the guitar at 16, later on being invited to play bass in both a local metal band and glam rock band. This was short lived, as rhythm guitar has always been where his heart lies, now finding an exciting opportunity in Triaxis. Matt uses DBZ guitars, and Laney ironheart amps.
GARETH - DRUMS
