THY ART IS MURDER’s second album, Hate, was recently released in their homeland where it has been smashing boundaries once thought to confine bands of their ilk. The record came in at #35 on the Top 40 Aria chart, making it the highest debut of any Aussie death metal band ever! Nuclear Blast Entertainment is proud to finally properly release Hate in the U.S. on April 2nd and in Europe on April 5th. The album was produced and mixed by Will Putney (SUICIDE SILENCE, BORN OF OSIRIS, FOR TODAY) with artwork created by Brent Elliot White (CARNIFEX, DEATH ANGEL).
You can now view the video clip for “Reign Of Darkness” and order Hate with or without an exclusive t-shirt design while supplies last from the following location http://goo.gl/GLdkC.
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 EP and debut album in Infinite Death and The Adversary to their name, the band have traversed the highways and autobahns of Australia, the UK and Europe on a relentless crusade to destroy every venue and audience they can with like-minded peers in a who's who of heavy metal.
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. With their best work to date ready to be unleashed on an unsuspecting world, THY ART IS MURDER will once again take to the road to unleash the Hate with one simple message - get in the pit or get out of the way.
