A true product of the Hunter Valley, hard rock band Subterfuge are finding their feet on the local scene.

Subterfuge will play their first Newcastle gig this Friday, February 23 at the Cambridge Hotel.

The five-piece rockers just completed recording a four-track EP of their own original music at Mark Tinson's studio and are now searching for a distributor.

Subterfuge are the product of four years' of hard work, from 20-year-old guitarist and primary songwriter James Peacock, his brother and guitarist Christopher, age 22 and bass player Shane Pascoe. All still live at Dunns Creek.

Current lead vocalist, 25-year-old Marks Shore, joined the group six months ago from Nelson Bay rock band Ishtah, with whom he had been for six years.

Completing the line-up on drums is 27-year-old, Tony Chester from Paterson, who has 15 years' experience with various bands.

Subterfuge cover songs made famous by Black Sabbath, Metallica, Iron Maiden and say their main influences come from Pantera and Megadeth.

They plan to bring excitement and originality back to Maitland with a hard-driving metal rock sound.

Recently the band played at the Tilligerry RSL, where they had 200 people on their feet.
