Official Biography…

Marabou was formed in early 2011 and hail from Wexford, Ireland. Originally setting out as a three-piece powerhouse with a sound that bastardises elements of metal, post-hardcore and alternative-infused power, they went about creating a serious buzz within the Irish underground music scene.

Garnishing a healthy following over the years, Marabou quickly liberated themselves from their local hometown and have since established themselves as one of Ireland’s fastest rising genre-heavy bands and having armed themselves with an extra guitar and vocal, their unquestionable live performances are jam-packed with raw, visceral and sonically-charged compositions that have to be seen to truly understand their maximum potential.

Playing to their own unique groove, Marabou embrace their love from all aspects of heavy music – infusing their musical influences and personal experiences into an originally solid, hard and harsh sound that is truly their own.
