WASTELAND ROCKS is a female fronted heavy metal band from Ålesund, Norway. Founded in 2004 the five members started out as a tribute band with the mission to serve their fans the «best heavy metal of all ages».
This goal still lives on as they pursue recording their own music. The debut single «I Say Burn!» was released on digital stores worldwide on the 25th of April 2011.
The band is focused on building a following on live streaming services like YouTube, Facebook, Twitch & Periscope where live performances are streamed with high quality audio and visual effects.
Main influences are heavy metal and thrash bands from 1970s to 1990s like Black Sabbath, Accept, Metallica, Dio, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Anthrax to name a few.
Wasteland Rocks’ popular cover versions of classics like «Heaven and Hell» by Black Sabbath, «Mr Crowley» by Ozzy, «Perfect Strangers» by Deep Purple, «The Wicker Man» by Iron Maiden, «Holy Diver» by Dio and «Living after Midnight» by Judas Priest show the band’s versatility and have been played more than 750.000 times on SoundCloud so far.
In May 2010 Wasteland Rocks headlined the Friday show at the Harley Davidson Federation SuperRally 2010 in Patras, Greece as the only non-greek band.
The band has shared festival stages with some great artists like Nazareth, Black Star Riders, Stage Dolls, Titanic, The Carburetors and Ken Hensley (Uriah Heep).
