Formed in late 2016 by Gippsland natives Patty Goodman (vocals) and Tyson Taifer (guitar), metalcore outfit Mirrors quickly turned the eyes and ears of Australian listeners towards Regional Victoria with the release of their debut EP “Fool’s Paradise” in 2017. The five track release revealed the sound and delivery of a unit that had been functioning for many years, but after a mere 12 months since their formation, they were invited to play alongside Parkway Drive, The Amity Affliction and many more at the hallowed Unify festival.


Backed by fellow long time friend Jake Mackin (bass) and Melbourne based drummer Rob Brens, the four piece followed up their EP with the release of the single Circus, which showed a staggering step up in sound, maturity and production.


2019 saw the band’s ceaseless efforts coalesce with the release of their 2nd EP “Cold Sanctuary”. With their first EP establishing a commentary on the world around them, “Cold Sanctuary” ventured inwards. With maturity comes introspection, and this new effort delved into the psyche, trying to navigate and make sense of the chaotic chatter of our innermost thoughts, begging for reprieve. To compliment this unrelenting theme is a backdrop of earth shattering production, rivalling any band on the world stage, bringing their deepest, strongest and most dynamic compositions to date, alive.


“Cold Sanctuary” took the band beyond the borders of Victoria and around the country, showcasing their craft to audiences on tour with the likes of Wage War, Alpha Wolf, Thornhill, Crystal Lake and many more.


Throughout this touring, work commenced on the long awaited first full length album. Upon completing enough material for a new EP, the work was cast aside as the need to evolve and grow was paramount. With a shift towards more dense, atmospheric landscapes, backed by thunderous yet intricate groove work and seeking to explore the dynamic ranges of the band members’ instruments as far as possible, the die was cast for “the Ego’s Weight”.


Ceaseless work by the band alongside the production team of Scott Simpson and Lance Prenc (Polaris, Alpha Wolf) continued from 2019 and throughout 2020, culminating with a ten track, genre busting tour de force, leaving behind their metalcore roots. Lyrical themes centred around the fall of morality and values while seeking to take decisive action against hate delivered by the soaring vocals of Patty Goodman, set against a backdrop of subtle and sparse of grooves, to heart wrenching ballads, gigantic grooves and frenetic heavy compositions, “the Ego’s Weight” truly is a journey for any lover of music and finally displays Mirrors as a whole greater than the sum of its parts.
