Thy Art Is Murder, The Acacia Strain & Fit For An Autopsy collaborate for a hellacious EP
By Jay Hunter – Thy Art Is Murder is an Australian deathcore band from Blacktown (a suburb of Sydney, New South Wales). The band formed in 2006 and have released two EPs and three full-length albums and are currently signed to Distort in Canada and Nuclear Blast worldwide. Their 2008 EP Infinite Death, reached position no. 10 on the AIR Charts upon release, and their second full-length album Hate debuted at no. 35 on the ARIA Charts, making them the first extreme metal band to ever reach the Top 40 of this chart. The album also reached no. 1 on AIR and both no. 2 and no. 4 respectively on the USA and Canadian iTunes metal charts on its week of release.
For their newest effort, The Depression Sessions, Thy Art hooked up with deathcore giants Acacia Strain and Fit For An Autopsy (listen above). Each of the three bands take their own brand of deathcore and implement it on the mini-album creating a lean, crushing EP. Whilst admittedly (and predictably) miserable, The Depression Sessions is a must listen for fans of the genre, Thy Art’s cover of Rammstein’s Du Hast is a particular stand out.
