Confronting Mortality With ANDREW & ADAM From WILDHEART

Share This:

“It’s about starting conversations with people who may not be involved in that space.”


Brisbane/Meanjin metalcore outfit Wildheart have let their music do the talking from the outset, unafraid to tackle sensitive issues and even less distracted by the myriad of smokescreens that are rapidly punctuating the music scene as a whole.

Their debut album Global Crisis – a body of work that drew attention and respect to a number of issues affecting Indigenous Australians – was named Gold Coast Music Awards Release Of The Year, also earning them a number of other awards and accolades.

Not content to rest on their laurels, Wildheart followed that up last year with the brilliant single Sacred Ground before launching into 2024 with a new track Death Is All That’s Left.

HEAVY sat down recently with Andrew (drums) and Adam (guitar) to talk more about the exciting future for Wildheart. Death Is All That’s Left was premiered via HEAVY last month, so we start by asking how the early reception has been.

The reception has been awesome,” Andrew smiled. “We’ve gotten a lot of positive reviews and comments and a lot of traction online and sharing across all the platforms. We started up a TikTok and that’s been going well, so we’re really happy with the response and feedback we’ve got. I feel like with every release we work on we’re stepping it up a notch, and it felt good that it was recognised.”

We ask the boys to dive deeper into the track musically.

“We really just wanted to hone in on some more of my metalcore influence,” Adam offered. “So channelling a lot of Lost Together, Lost Forever era Architects, older Parkway Drive… there’s a bit of Bury Your Dead and stuff like that mixed in there too, but we wanted to write something fast and heavy.”

In the full interview the boys discuss the lyrical content of Death Is All That’s Left and the message they are trying to get across, if they think the message is getting through with music, having a song featured on Friday Night AFL Footy, previous single Sacred Ground, if the two songs are stand-alone singles or part of something bigger, possible future musical directions, upcoming shows and more.
