Then band’s sixth full length, ‘Godlike”, arrives next month.
Australian extreme metal horde Thy Art Is Murder have unveiled yet another brutal preview of their sixth studio album due out September 15th via Human Warfare. Having already showcased the enormity of Godlike with the onslaught of singles like “Join Me In Armageddon” and the hellacious “Keres“, Thy Art has continued their blitz with the delivery of “Blood Throne”.
From the very beginning of the track as vocalist CJ McMahon roars, “And So They Rot!” – the precedence is set and the hostility of the track rings loud and clear. Asserting one of the most dynamic performances on the album, the single showcases the kind of brutality executed with pummeling precision, underscoring the level of extreme music expertise that exists among the collective of Thy Art Is Murder.
Guitarist Andy Marsh shared of the single, “As we started work on ‘Blood Throne,’ we aimed to harness the same visceral energy that drove ‘Death Squad Anthem‘ while pushing our boundaries to craft something unique. Kicking things off with a break beat groove, we wanted to set the tone with a jolt to the system preparing everyone for the chaos ahead.”
Marsh elaborated on the confrontational spirit of the track, “‘Blood Throne’ embodies our attempt at creative anthemic power and groove spiraling into a reflection of oppressive organizations and regimes that profit and thrive on the toil and pain of the marginalized. Throughout our career, we have confronted these themes head on with the aim of igniting a fire within each listener and inspiring the collective strength to challenge the dominion of those who perpetuate suffering.”
The arrival of Godlike serves as the follow-up to the band’s universally acclaimed 2019 full length, Human Target and once again finds the band working with longtime producer Will Putney. The campaign for the band’s sixth album also follows their triumphant 2022 parade that saw Thy Art Is Murder revisiting their seminal sophomore release, Hate, which marked it’s tenth anniversary last year.
