Since their inception more than 15 years ago Dreadnaught have established themselves as a cornerstone for Australian heavy rock audiences. The city Dreadnaught call home, Melbourne Australia, has spawned several next big things over the last decade. But as genres and bands come and go Dreadnaught never fail to provide their loyal fans, both old and new, with diverse offerings that are rooted in the brand of Australian rock and metal that the band have become an historic part of.

Before signing to Roadrunner Australia subsidiary Dark Carnival Records in 1999 Dreadnaught self-financed and released Body.Blood.Skin.Mind (LP CD - 1996) and Idiosyncrasy (EP CD - 1998). After the Dark Carnival signing Dreadnaught's next, Down To Zero (LP CD - 1999), received critical acclaim, U.K., European and U.S. airplay, and was released in the U.S. and Europe through The Music Cartel.

2002 saw the release of an EP, One Piece Missing, again through Dark Carnival. The lead song from this release, Pushed to the Limit was placed on the high-rotation playlist of Australias premier national rock radio station, TripleJ.

Headlining tours, high profile supports with Testament, Strapping Young Lad, Nickelback, Nevermore, Paradise Lost, and Cathedral to name a few, as well as slots on leading Australian metal and rock festivals have earned Dreadnaught the reputation as one of Australias finest and hardest working live acts.

Dreadnaught again emerged from the studio in 2005 with their most powerful, intense and dynamically versatile recording to date. The resultant recording is of 11 massive raw rock anthems that make up Dirty Music (LP CD 2005).

The following year Roadrunner Australia released a re-packaged Dirty Music as a dual CD featuring different artwork, previously unreleased material from Body.Blood.Skin.Mind, Idiosyncrasy and the Dirty Music sessions, as well as videos for Cut Throat Blues and Pushed To The Limit. Dirty Music 2 is both a fan must-have and perfect first foray for newcomers into the world of Dreadnaught.

May 2008 saw the addition of Matt Racovalis on drums. Matt brings a definitive metal edge and a high degree of technical ability to the band which is reflected in the results of the song writing process throughout 2008. This latest LP is departure from the more rock orientated releases of previous years and represents a return to the bands early thrash-metal roots and is the bands heaviest release to date.

2009 sees the pending release of Dreadnaughts latest self-titled LP CD which will be available through all good record stores, online via iTunes and from various websites now.
