Thy Art is Murder
& Shrouded in Neglect
August 20, 2017
Australian deathcore band Thy Art is Murder have been making an annual trip to the burgh since 2014 and in some years twice. They have destroyed the stages of Altar Bar, Mr. Smalls Theatre, Key Bank Pavilion (formerly First Niagara Pavilion) and now the Rex Theater.
The 5 piece formed in 2006 with Brendan Van Ryn on vocals but departed on 2008. The door opened for CJ McMahon to take over that roll and has done so for 2 different stints, 2009-2015 and again this year in 2017. Drummer Lee Stanton has been the only constant member since 2006.
Since 2010 Thy Art is Murder released 4 studio albums, The Adversary, Hate, Holy War and Dear Desolation released August 18, 2017. Michael Pementel of Metal Injection website says the new album is “…is a pure deathcore enthusiast’s wet dream. Everything one can imagine from the genre’s defining usage of blast beats and iconic breakdowns takes place. Vocalist CJ McMahon brings forth a vocalization that feels like a time machine, the guttural energy of his voice bringing back the feeling of those old school deathcore albums.”
