Hailing from Australia, are Sydney’s genre bending heavy groove exponents, Black Rheno. The Boys have left an undeniable mark on the scene since their beginnings in late 2015. They’ve built a solid fan base through their high energy live shows and ability to translate their blend of stoner, sludge, punk, grind, groove metal into a wild and rolicking good time.

Already infiltrating the airwaves of Triple J and many other radio stations across the country, and with debut video clip being played nationally on Rage TV, Black Rheno possess a fierce DIY no bullshit approach to every aspect of the band. It’s this all or nothing approach that sees the band winning new fans everytime they play.

With a strong focus on developing the scene and building a national audience through relentless touring, the band operate from their own Sydney based studio ‘Housefox Studios‘ and organise a growing local festival each year to showcase the areas talents.

This all-inclusive approach, along with their knack for delivering a consistently thunderous live set of their signature sound is what sets Black Rheno apart.

A Black Rheno show is full of heavy pounding drum rhythms, low tuned sonic riffage and frontman Ryan Miller’s eclectic and unique vocal style, the Black Rheno live chemistry is something to behold.

November/ December 2016 saw Black Rheno hitting the Australian East Coast on an extensive EP release tour.

Black Rheno are currently ton the road with ‘The Thrash, Blast, Grind Fest’ Australian Tour in Febuary 2017 alongside King Parrot, Revocation and Psycroptic.

Hysteria Mag – Thrash Blast Grind Fest 1st Show Review

Sydney’s Black Rheno are next to take the stage. If the crowd thought Amicable Treason were energetic, they saw a whole new level of energy, amped up by the three piece and their brand of grind metal that borders on thrash, with a little bit of punk thrown in for good measure. Ryan ‘Milla’ Miller never stops moving, even after he lands on his head in the crowd, rather than his feet, and the King Parrot influence are clear in their unique sounds as they get the crowd involved. It’s clear that there are already fans in the crowd and as their set draws to a close with the popular No Time For Numb Nuts, it’s safe to say there are a hell of a lot more people digging their sound. –


‘Let’s Start A Cult’ EP


The Brag – EP Review

“There’s something wonderfully grating about ‘Let’s Start A Cult’. With no shortage of thunderous drum lines, rolling guitars and gritty vocals…. This is truley a juicy release, with six tracks of epic brutality rumbling back to back – and six tracks is all the EP needs to prove the band’s worth.” – The Brag –

Heavy Mag – EP Review (9.5 out of 10)

“One of the greatest up and coming bands to come from our shores, blending elements of stoner, grind, sludge and groove metal into one lethal cocktail.” – “Black Rheno are as solid as a f**ing cement truck; this EP will pave the for sludge-greatness.” – “Black Rheno really leave no stone unturned with this all killer no filer EP. One world class band that really make you feel proud to be and Aussie.” – Heavy Mag –
