Thy Art Is Murder
Thy Art Is Murder
Rising from the unhallowed wastes of Western Sydney, extreme metal outfit THY ART IS MURDER have carved a trail of bloody mayhem since their inception in 2006. With an acclaimed back catalogue, the band’s latest album Hate has seen THY ART IS MURDER’s infamy explode worldwide on the back of intense touring throughout Australia, Europe, the UK, Asia and the Americas with a who’s who of heavy metal as well as successful headline shows in as many far flung corners of the globe they can get to.

Simply titled Hate, the band’s second full length is the pointed result of THY ART IS MURDER’s growing dissatisfaction with all aspects of modern life – political, religious, social and environmental – everyone is to blame. Fusing the blasting technicality of metal luminaries The Black Dahlia Murder with thunderous breakdowns and the intensity born of their nascent hometown scene; the blackened grandeur of Behemoth and the pit churning groove of Tampa originators Morbid Angel and Cannibal Corpse, the furious musical arrangements provide a bloody canvas for vocalist CJ McMahon’s outpourings of bile. No strangers to stoking controversy and criticism, the band have not toned down their art for the sake of palatability and have introduced a morose melodicism into their maelstrom – the rumination before pulling the trigger.

Continuing their unrelenting crusade to destroy eardrums and mosh pits across the world, THY ART IS MURDER will be unleashing the Hate in a venue near you any day now – get in the pit or get out of the way.
