Biography

Heaven The Axe are a hard rock band based in Melbourne, Australia – a juxtaposition between the illustrious, hypnotic, powerful and rhythmically pounding female vocals of Phoebe Pinnock, twisting their way around a stomping Aussie riff factory!

HEAVEN THE AXE released their debut record “Sex, Chugs & Rock ‘N’ Roll” (produced by Ren Parisi and mastered by Steve Smart) independently in late 2011 and have toured solid headlining shows since around Australia filling venues and gathering glowing industry reviews about their high energy live performance and X-factor showmanship.

HEAVEN THE AXE is one of only a very small select handful of unsigned bands with a release being officially sponsored by Monster Energy.

Touring as main support on a string of shows with Rose Tattoo handpicked by Angry Anderson, supporting CrashDiet from Sweden, Fozzy (Fronted by Chris Jericho) from USA for Soundwave Touring, playing as a feature act live at Summernats 2010, 11 & 13, regularly cranked as the soundtrack to V8 Supercars on national TV’s Channel 7 and OneHD, feature interviews and regular airplay on the nations biggest broadcasters Triple J and Triple M. The band is featured on TV documentaries as well as constant unwavering support from community radio, community TV and internet broadcasters worldwide.

HEAVEN THE AXE have toured Australia extensively on their own headline tours but this year have toured almost exclusively with the greatest Australian heavy metal acts such as King Parrot, Frankenbok and Dreadnaught taking the stage with equal brutality and billing touring regionally and playing metropolitan areas extensively with great success.

Their video clip is featured on Australian TV shows such as rage, MTV’s Headbangers Ball and repeated continually on many community TV shows. Their music is the soundtrack in iconic Australian Paramount feature film Housos VS Authority and movie trailer released in November 2012 as well as 2013′s Housos Series 2 now showing on SBS TV.

In 2013, their single “Good Things Come To Those Who Hate” recorded by Regi Bowman of Screamlouder Productions and mastered by Scott Hull (USA) charted at #2 on Australian iTunes Metal Chart.

In 2014, Heaven The Axe has written and recorded the title track to new series “Bogan Hunters” airing on 7mate from April with an accompanying video clip. The show is created by Housos/Fat Pizza/Swift n Shift Couriers producers Antichocko Productions.

The band were selected to represent the entire country in the International Battle of The Bands’ Hard Rock Cafe’s Hard Rock Rising Competition 2013.

HEAVEN THE AXE are A-grade endorsees of Schecter Guitars, ESP, Digitech, RMV Skins and are the only band officially sponsored by worldwide Organic Health and Beauty Brand, Miessence.

HEAVEN THE AXE are partnered with America’s Metal Motivation brand bringing the metal mentality to self-discovery and life coaching.

Phoebe is the face of Australian rock aerobics gym Alternative Womens Fitness  to inspire and encourage rockin’ women in their fitness goals while working out to air guitar band practice workouts and doing yoga classes to Metallica’s Black Album!

 

Heaven The Axe is an authentic ball tearing expression of the finer aspects of love, on rock n rolls terms. The combination of masculine balls and feminine beauty with unrelenting power is what gives this band its undeniable strength. An organic compromise between the boys untamed metal-as-f#*k influences and Phoebe’s popular stylings and wild woman voice with stories that connect and penetrate are a testament to the bands steamrolling fan following.

This is a band that will obliterate your stereos, and will only surpass that by decimating your senses when you see them live!

Lyrics

So Nirvana

Written By: P. Pinnock

SO NIRVANA

Good lookin’
That’s not what my mum would say…hey!
And I’m looking
Whenever he walks this way
When he’s talking
I'm not takin' in aphrase
Perverted stalkin’
I wanna lock him up in my cage

He looks like the music (x3)
That I love

CHORUS:
Oh that boy is sexy he looks so Nirvana
Long hair and tattoos and an SLR Torana
Ooh my body’s lustin; like it’s powered on guarana
He plays me like his Jackson when I'm ridin' his...

Don’t be easy
That’s just what my mum would say
Girls don’t act sleazy
Shes not looking anyway

He looks like the music (x3)
That I love

REPEAT CHORUS

Kurt, Dave or Chris he's a mix an imalgum
But not Pat Smear from the unplugged album (x2)

Oh that boy is sexy he looks so Nirvana
Long hair and tattoos and an SLR Torana
Ooh my body’s lustin; like it’s powered on guarana
He plays me like his Jackson when I'm ridin' his banana! YEAH!

Enemy

Written By: P. Pinnock

ENEMY

Its only your disaster
Ive set my mind at ease
Just keep running faster
And know there aint a friend in me now

Have your empty racket
Cos I have set you free
But the stitches in my back you hid
Im keeping as part of me

Oh wouldnt you know
Oh I got an enemy
But I filled in the hole
Where they used to stand next to me
The stiches in my back
Im keeping so you can see in
I wont be needin' my enemy

I got an ememy yeah!

And in your mourning after
When you realized
That youre a lonely bastard
And no you aint a friend of mine

Did you remember every
Second I was a friend in deed?
And every time you beckoned
Id be bathing you in empathy?

Oh wouldnt you know
Oh I got an enemy
But I filled in the hole
Where they used to stand next to me
The stiches in my back
Im keeping so you can see in
I wont be bleedin' my enemy

Oooh

Oh Enemy
No you wont enter me
Oh Enemy

I don’t need a gun I got a band and the song is sung
How far can you run from
Whats within you?
All the things that you have done and it seems I am not your only one
But I count mine upon my thumb
My enemy

Oh wouldnt you know
Oh I got an enemy
But Ive filled in the hole
Where he used to stand next to me
The stiches in my back
Im keeping as part of me
Oh wouldnt you know
I got an enemy
Enemy
No you wont enter me
Enemy
You wont enter me

Glue

Written By: P. Pinnock

GLUE
They say that everything will be okay just ask a favour
They’ll say “Tomorrow is another day, just pay me later”
You’re bent and broke; unclean
But can you hide it behind the looks of a queen
Are you a cog in their mean machine?

CHORUS:
Or buy the glue that mends the broken hearts
Set it; grow it together
Or rent the wind that dries your salty tears
Will ya let them blow it forever

They push their alpha bread on ya every day
Just add some honey
Another seed; another is watered, another wage
Our fruit’s their money
You’re bent and broke unclean
But can you hide it by colouring it dollar green?
Are you a cog in their mean machine?

REPEAT CHORUS

Yeah right!
That’s not how it seems when you’re cold and low…Oh!
Yeah right!
That’s not how it seems when you’re cold and low and lo-lo-lonely (x2)

Unconditional Love

Written By: P. Pinnock

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

Softly spoken those words of love I close my eyes
It cuts through time
Heart is open to heaven above warm in your arms
Close to my heart
If a teardrop should fall
If you need me at all

CHORUS
I’ll be there for you
There’s nothing you need to do
It’s unconditional love
Let’s see this lifetime through
I wanna share it with you
It’s unconditional love

And I am yours I am eternally we are the same
And that will never change
I wanted you to know in case one of us should go
That you’re my star
Close to my heart
If it’s a cloudy day
I’ll bring a rainbow your way

REPEAT CHORUS

In this world you’ve brightened up my day
Your light will keep me shining all the way

I am yours forever
Our love will bind us together

REPEAT CHORUS x 2
