MASON, True Hard fast and Blood Bathing metal, reminicent of the scene shattering sound that filled the mosh pits of every club in the 80’s and made MTV Melt.  This album is god awesome and will be the next goal to beat for any shredder that believes themselves worth to carry the honor.

Crushing audiences across the globe with their driving force and energetic stage presence, Melbourne thrashers MASON deliver commanding performances that has taken them on tours across Australia and beyond in Asia, Europe plus Canada where they have shared the stage with the likes of Harlott, Havok, Accept, Revocation, Mutank and Annihilator.

As local favorites of the Melbourne metal scene, MASON have been selected as local direct support for Canadian metal demigods ANVIL and their show date on November 11that The Prince Bandroom, which is part of the band’s 40th Anniversary World Tour. Ticket info here. Event details here.


Drawing influence from The Big Four and The Bay Area, MASON encapsulates the 80′s thrash sound mixed with fast tempos and a dominating rhythm section. The quartet unleashed their second full length “Impervious” this past October that features nine glorious thrashing tracks mixed and mastered by Erin Hamidovic (Devin Townsend Project, Sikth, Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Elm Street).

Vocalist / guitarist Jimmy Benson comments:

“During the demo process we wrote a lot of material, but the majority made the ‘Impervious’ album minus one or two songs. We spent a lot of time fine tuning the songs and making sure they kicked ass! For this album, we focused mainly on trimming the fat and stepping up the energy and tempos. Fast, focused and heavy! For those wanting to know more about this release. ‘Impervious’ touches on so many topics from suicide, death, terrorism and more events that happen to people around the world. When ya look at the front cover, it is a symbol of character and strength of a boy that goes about his everyday life in the worst conditions and does what is normal to him to get by day to day. To sum it up, this new album is powerful and holds a strong message from start to finish.”


Album order for a CD copy of “Impervious” available on MASON‘s website plus available for digital download on iTunesAmazonSpotify and all major online retailers.
