"Album Reviews : Warnings – Event Horizon"

Australia seems to produce high-quality alternative/progressive rock and metal acts like it’s shelling peas, and here is yet another one. Warnings are a Melbourne-based duo who have only recently put themselves together, but they have found their songwriting feet in the merest blink of an eye if this, their debut EP, is anything to go by.

At least part of that may stem from the fact that both members have an illustrious pedigree in the local scene behind them, with names like Engine Three Seven, Branch Arterial and Secret Tsunami on their respective CVs. Guitarist Tim Chilman and frontman Casey Dean have drawn upon that, as well as an enormous canon of Aussie and international alt and prog rock to produce something rather special on Event Horizon. The EP is four blistering yet highly melodic rock tracks, choc-full of hooks, dynamics and huge moments, and then closed out by the slower, more atmospheric, more heartfelt Denied, which builds nicely in a slow-burn fashion over its four minute length. It’s a bittersweet and melancholy way to close proceedings, and provides a very left-field contrast to the very ‘up’ vibe of the four tracks that preceded it. This is a band already in full command of its craft.

Both members are in ripping form here. Dean’s voice, and the fact that this band resides in a similar ballpark stylistically to his former major project, makes it a touch difficult to separate it from the output of E37. But this is a good thing, as E37 were an awesome band, and Dean’s powerful but sweet vocal delivery is again a feature here. Chilman’s riffs are chunky, ballsy and full of groove, and his playing is dead on the money. And overall, this entirely self-produced release sounds punchy, powerful and full of clarity.

These two local lads have produced something rather special here. The fact that they’re a brand new outfit and this is their very first release only adds to the aura and the promise of what might come.

You have been warned. - Metal Obsession


The calibre of Australian music is showing no signs of slowing down with Melbourne duo Warnings about to release their debut EP Event Horizon. Both Tim Chilman and Casey Dean are no strangers to the local scene having been in bands such as Engine Three Seven, Secret Tsunami and Branch Arterial.

Warnings have developed their own unique sound and I am really digging it. The first 4 tracks on Event Horizon just make you wish gigs were a thing still because I needed a dance floor! Casey’s vocals combined with Tim’s groovy riffs and hooks reel the listener in and if you’re not moving then I’ll assume you’re dead. From the beginning track, Fatal Medicine with its fast-paced lyrics Warnings shows us that they are here to make a mark on the scene. Previously released singles, Waterboy and Fan of Flames, both are catchy and full of groove. Overwriter slows the pace slightly and Casey’s vocals shine through on this track. The final track, Denied, has a softer, melodious sound and is my favourite off the EP and a beautiful way to end what was an enthralling musical journey.

Overall this is a fabulous debut EP from two extremely talented musicians and I am keen for gigs to be up and running to see these guys live.

Warnings are going to be another band to keep your eye on. Event Horizon is available on all platforms on 10th July. - Recurrent Verse


Still working on that hot first release.



Warnings, an alternative metal duo from Melbourne, Australia, take an infectiously melodic approach to modern heavy music. Driven by crushing riffs and dynamic soundscapes they draw inspiration from the likes of Deftones, A Perfect Circle & Twelve Foot Ninja.

Having endured the ebb and flow of life in original bands with several members, vocalist Casey Dean and guitarist Tim Chilman decided to record and produce their music independently as a two piece.

After receiving a welcome arrival to the scene on April 24th with their debut single and lyric video for ‘FAN OF FLAMES’, the duo’s follow up single and video clip for ‘WATERBOY’ not only confirms their ability to produce catchy, heavy music at a high standard, but puts their humorously creative characters unashamedly on display.

With their debut EP 'EVENT HORIZON' released on July 10th, Warnings are showing all the signs of a unique and competent contender in the heavy music scene. Their music is now available on all major digital platforms.
