Winter is almost over and the year is drawing to a close but there are still plenty of incredible Aussie hardcore rock and metal bands to see in the last few months of 2019.
These are the top 5 bands you shouldn’t miss:
5. Thy Art is Murder
If you’re looking for some classic dark, gritty, anti-establishment heavy metal look no further. Thy Art is Murder fully embraces themes like human rights, politics and mortality with songs about complex topics such as violence, religion, mental health and even organ harvesting. As a deathcore band, they don’t have many clean vocals in their songs and I wonder if this addition would help highlight their complex lyrics, but there’s no doubt the screaming adds to the powerful emotional tone of the music. Thy Art is Murder is a band with a great sound and a lot to say.
