Tiberius are a five piece progressive metal band from Edinburgh who utilise elements of pop and rock in their song-writing to create memorable hooks and sonically interesting moments. Musically, fans of Protest the Hero (PTH), Between the Buried and Me, and Twelve Foot Ninja will enjoy the instrumentation, while the clean vocals have drawn comparisons to bands like Killswitch Engage, PTH and Iron Maiden.


Tiberius are known for their energetic and mesmerising live performances, and it is rare that the five members stay confined to the stage during a performance. They are currently touring with tracks from their debut album, A Peaceful Annihilation, which is available on all major streaming platforms.


In 2023, Tiberius completed a UK/EU Headline tour, Played at Euroblast Festival (DE) and RADAR Festival (UK). This was the band's first trip into Europe and shows were very well attended with fans driving over 300km to see them play.

In 2024, Tiberius will play a handful of shows including 3 Festivals while they work on the release of their second album, due early 2025.

2021 - Of Sheep and Wolves (Bonus Halloween Single)

2020 - A Peaceful Annihilation (Debut Album)


2018 - Dissipate (Single)

2017 - The Beautiful Ones (EP)

 "This is surely a contender for album of the year for me, which begs the question, when is someone going to sign them?"
