Thy Art Is Murder exorcise the pangs of mortality and the pains of socio-political trauma to a soundtrack of authentic crushing death metal with blackened fury and flashes of knuckle-dragging stomp. In its crosshairs are a buffet of human atrocities from privatised prisons enforcing police states where non-violent offenders languish for decades to human organ harvesting for the wealthy. They also examine the false gods of social media while pharmaceuticals numb the minds of the dissociated.
We’re also confronted with the current state of politics riddled with hyperactive virtue signalling, extremism and disenfranchisement, And, while hyperbolic leaders promise to make everything “great” again, our planet lurches toward an inevitable climate disaster that will extinguish humanity. Grim.
Since the release of Human Target, Thy Art Is Murder have been on tour non-stop, leaving a trail of sold out shows in their wake. Between bouts of crisscrossing the Northern Hemisphere, the band briefly returned home for a stint on Good Things festival before heading back to Europe.
