ABOUT

Loaded Billy is a heavy rock / stoner rock band from Adelaide Australia. The band's current line up consists of Trevor Moyle (Guitars), Ucan Ashtar (guitars), Willi Gutwein (Drums), Gary Standley (Bass and Vocals) Jimi ‘James 'Chamings' (Lead Vocals & Guitars), Cindy Brown (vocals). Loaded Billy was conceived as a writing project by drummer-songwriter Willi and guitarist-songwriter Trevor whom had both returned to their home town of Adelaide. You know it's Loaded Billy as soon as you hear that first riff, high powered heavy rock that's alive and well in the 21st century. Their songs are an amalgam of great melodies, clever riffs, solid tight arrangements, powerful vocals and a pounding rhythm section. As reviewed by Brendan Franz former writer / review editor Rip It Up Magazine - “Loaded Billy’s sound owes much to the NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) movement and is reminiscent of classic ‘British Steel’ era: Judas Priest, early Def Leppard, Iron Maiden and bands like Budgie” Loaded Billy are a powerful live act having developed a hardcore following with new fans coming all the time. Along with their great song writing that is entrenched in a rich musical background, their music and stage presence imbues an energy that consumes punters .. its toe tappin, head banging, riff driven pleasure.

Album 'Legend' coming January 2023

Brenden Franz – Former weekly writer and reviewer “Rip It Up Magazine” - Abridged Version.:

“their sound owes much to the NWOBHM movement and is reminiscent of classic ‘British Steel” era Judas Priest, early Def Leppard, Iron maiden and bands like Budgie Searing licks which compliment the music perfectly. For the most part it’s one cool riff after another, however Loaded Billy also take time out for some haunting acoustic passages. For an album which appears to have been recorded and produced without the big budget assistance of Record Label backing, ‘Legend’ is indeed an impressive effort which should stand up on its own. The production is flawless as the performances themselves. Loaded Billy have a loaded cannon here – what happens next is anyone’s guess but I wish them all the luck in the world”

Absolutely amazing!”

Sean Thompson – Fan ‘Legend’ album preview.:
