Madcap Australian rockers Battlesnake reveal video for “The Key of Solomon”

Madcap Australian rockers Battlesnake have revealed their new single “The Key Of Solomon”, ahead of their new album, The Rise and Demise of The Motorsteeple, due 21st June and is available for pre-order now.

“The Key Of Solomon” is a straight up classic heavy metal song. A lumbering, thunderous riff straight from the book of Black Sabbath, epic 70s soloing and that unmistakable Battlesnake sermon vocal delivery.

Of the track, Battlesnake state:

A ghastly sorceress who dwells in the catacombs of the Motorsteeple. Brewing potions and drawing pentagrams as she recites “The Lesser Key of Solomon”. She is the abbey’s navigator. Long Live The Dungeon Witch!

Battlesnake will touring the UK and Europe for the first time in May, including appearances at The Great Escape and Bearded Theory festivals.

Battlesnake have already set tongues ablaze in the Australian scene – a seven-piece vortex emerging from the depths of the underworld. With a powerful sound that can best be described as the genetically-engineered cyborg super-child of Queen, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, and Judas Priest, the band have quickly gained a reputation for their high-impact live performance and epic, theatrical songwriting.

Battlesnake released their debut EP in 2020, a powerful 6-track release entitled Myths and Legends from Gorbag’s Domain. Their first full-length, self-titled, followed in 2023 – exploding them into the wider Australian consciousness. Recently the band have supported titans KISS on their End of The World Tour, The Smashing Pumpkins and Jane’s Addiction on the The World Is a Vampire tour.

Now, Battlesnake are marching forward, and laying the foundations for their biggest year yet. Mortals tremble, all hail Battlesnake!
