COUNTRY: Australia

STYLE: Hard Rock

PROFILE: “This ain’t just a band, there’s a power and glamour to them. These guys are showmen just looking for a bigger stage!”- The Rockpit.net

Class, quality, clarity, definition and a “cut above.” Like the gemstone itself, Diamond Eye delivers the wow! Factor whenever they burst on stage. The Perth based four piece were forged in 2006 through the vision and song writing partnership of vocalist and guitarists Will Kelly and Greg Fawcett. After recruiting New Zealand bassist Chase Cameron and local hot shot drummer Geoff Keating, DIAMOND EYE was born. 

With a sound that marries the fist pumping choruses of Kiss and Bon Jovi, with the chest pounding riffs and soaring solos of Metallica and Iron Maiden, Diamond Eye have the full package. Their shows are, quite simply, events. Whether it’s their highly sought after unplugged sets, or the full bombastic live performances with special effect lighting and pyrotechnics, Diamond Eye is everything you want in a live band all meticulously packaged within their own style and uniqueness.

“Diamond Eye are energetic and strong from beginning to end with their soaring guitar harmonies. They are a solid band who are great at their style which reaches out to all different genres and crowds”- WA Gig Guide

“Diamond Eye are MASSIVELY entertaining and INCREDIBLY fun to watch”- Xpress Magazine

A strong local following have ensured Diamond Eye the position as Perth’s premier hard rock attraction. Playing and headlining many of the local festivals including Minnawarra, Scorcherfest and the WAMI festivals in 2009 and 2010 has led to them securing main support slots with End of Fashion, Australian rock icons The Radiators, east coast bad boys The Poor .

Industry support has been strong for Diamond Eye from the beginning, including local, national and international airplay. West Australian winners of the 2008 Global Battle of the Bands, culminated in an industry showcase in Sydney, filmed by channel V. Internet television provider Loco TV showcases Diamond Eye on their music channel, whereas Max Metal Web Show’s 2010 pick was the Diamond Eye live video “Sound of the Guns”.

“It’s only a matter of time before these guys are signed and massively popular, so don’t you want to be the one to tell your friends, I told you so?”- Newrocknews43.com

Bare Metal Records 2009 international release ‘Auditory Assault’ compilation saw 25,000 copies distributed to all forms of the U.S Armed Forces featuring the Diamond Eye showstopper ‘Machine’ as did local compilation ‘Rink Rash & Whip Lash.’ Both have contributed to national and international exposure and support for the band.

In mid 2010, Diamond Eye filmed and recorded their live performance, showcasing it at the famed Perth venue The Amplifier to a near full capacity crowd of Diamond Eye devotees. Entitled ‘Alive and Kicking’, the CD/DVD release has received wide critical acclaim and is being promoted nationally following up their initial promo release ‘Diamond Eye’ in 2008.

“This is a band that actually wants to go places. They’re pumping themselves up! They’re talking about themselves and they’re pulling it off on stage”- Radio Fremantle 107.9fm

2011 will see the first full studio release from Diamond Eye with five tracks already recorded. Additional acoustic versions of tracks and an arsenal of merchandise at the ready, plans are being made for national and international tours and exposure.
