Powerxchuck is a 5 piece powerviolence band from Adelaide South Australia. Started in November 2013 with Cheese (Guitar/Vocals), Hannah (Bass). Fryz (Vocals) and Louis (Drums). Heavily influenced by old school powerviolence bands such as: Spazz, No Comment, Crossed Out, Hellnation and later PxV bands like To The Point, Eddie Brock, The Afternoon Gentlemen. We added a second guitarist Mikey mid 2014.
2.How would you describe your musical sound?
Old school powerviolence like crossed out, Spazz, Charles Bronson, No Comment.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
We dont sing about anything serious, mainly stupid things, life experiences.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'PowerXChuck'?
I think the drummer Louis came up with the name, just something silly.
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We haven't played many shows unfortunately, favorite show was East West Death Grind fest last year in Sydney. The powerviolence scene in Australia is basically non existant.

We are playing Distort Byron Fest on the East Coast of Australia in Feburary.

We have received better feedback from overseas, unfortunately there is no powerviolence scene here so we are pleased to see people enjoying out music elsewhere.

More old school powerviolence, I would like to play faster but its up to our drummer i guess.
