MUTILATED PROMOTIONS PRESENTS: ONE MASSIVE GOLD COAST ALL AGES LINEUP! IWRESTLEDABEARONCE (US) AUSTRALIAN TOUR with IN HEARTS WAKE & STORM THE SKY meets THY ART IS MURDER REIGN OF DARKNESS TOUR
IWRESTLEDABEARONCE don't play by the rules.
The fearless five-some from Shreveport, LA still bludgeons with the best of them. The band's spazzy fusion of metal, grindcore, jazz, electronica, and show-tunes has been consolidated into one violently vibrant assault.
'Ruining It For Everybody' IWRESTLEDABEARONCE sophomore album is their most creative and accomplished work to date serving as the ultimate middle finger to expectations, conventions and the norm.
"We do whatever the fuck we want, and that normally ends up pissing people off," declares guitarist Steven Bradley. The intensity inherent within Ruining It For Everybody will undoubtedly be replicated on stages worldwide when the band hits Australian stages for the first time this November. Every rule will be broken in the process
IN HEARTS WAKE have been a hard working band for quite some time, and recently caught the attention of indie powerhouse UNFD for the release of their debut album "Divination". Since the announcement of the album and it's main single "TRAVELLER", the Byron Bay five piece have become one of the most hyped up bands in the Australian heavy scene.
Rounding out the IWABO tour lineup is Melbourne upstarts STORM THE SKY. Fresh from the studio recording their sophomore EP STORM THE SKY are a band to watch.
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.
2012 brings a new ritual offering of darkness from the five piece. 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.
