Thy Art Is Murder: br0000dal

They’re pretty much our wave modern death metal band going right now, and they’re about the tear the UK a new one once again.

Australia is boasting countless awesome heavy acts at the moment, but few have grabbed us by the nuts and swung us around like delirious ragdolls like Thy Art Is Murder.

“The goal is to be the most crushingly devastating band possible,” is what frontman CJ McMahon told us last year, and while their breakdown-heavy take on the genre has left some purists unsure of whether they deserve to carry the torch of death metal’s greats, they are continuing to win over naysayers with a series of building-shattering live shows.

That run of form will doubtless continue when they land in the UK next week for a string of dates featuring some impressive support from Heart Of A Coward, versions Crown and Aegaeon.

Catch them on the following dates:

Tue 28 Jan – NORWICH – Waterfront Studio
Wed 29 Jan – BIRMINGHAM – Academy 3
Thu 30 Jan – MANCHESTER – Sound Control
Fri 31 Jan – GLASGOW – Ivory Blacks
Sat 01 Feb – LEEDS – Cockpit 3
Sun 02 Feb – SHEFFIELD – Corporation
Mon 03 Feb – NOTTINGHAM – Rock City Basement
Tue 04 Feb – BRISTOL -Exchange
Wed 05 Feb – CARDIFF – Clwb Ifor Bach
Thu 06 Feb – SOUTHAMPTON – Joiners
Fri 07 Feb – LONDON – Underworld
