Marijannah recently played their first live show in two years alongside death punk band Doldrey at Play by Ear Studios in Upper Paya Lebar on June 10. The band also released a four-track EP which also serves as the official soundtrack for tabletop roleplaying game GiantLands earlier this year in March.

It was the first new music the band have released since in 2019’s ‘Istanah’, and features tracks inspired by the characters and setting of the roleplaying game.

Marijannah’s previous release was a 2020 live album titled ‘Istanah Live At The Projector’, featuring the band performing the six tracks from their album ‘Istanah’ at the independent movie theatre The Projector with no audience present. It was directed by Ryan Chang, the touring photographer and videographer of Swedish metal band Ghost.

Sydney-based duo Potion made their debut in 2017 with their EP ‘Seven Sorcerors’. The group have released six tracks in total, with the most recent coming in the form of 2021’s EP ‘Oath To The Flames’, which comprised of the tracks ‘Torchbearer’ and ‘Hallucination Rites’.

Guitarist Lee Jowono notably joined Myke Terry (Volumes), Brandon Bruce (Havok), Phil Demmel (Vio-Lence) and Ben Koller (Converge, Mutoid Man, All Pigs Must Die) for a metal cover of Billy Idol‘s 1983 song, ‘Rebel Yell’ in 2020 as part of comedian Jordan Olds’ Two Minutes To Late Night series.
