Thy Art is Murder is a Death Metal band from Australia. They were a new find for me a few months back as they have signed with Nuclear Blast and I receieved their demo for the new album "Holy War" so I gave them a listen.

They are definitely intense and have some unique qualities, especially in the live vocal deliveries. The audience responded emphatically to the music and at one point there were six seperate mosh circles going on the festival grounds.

The singer said at one point "Keep these human waterfalls coming, lets make these guys work at it" referring to the crowd surfers moving across the top of their fellow fans and onto the security members at the barrier next to the stage.

It was definitely one of the best performances of the day and probably my third favortie after King Diamond and Slayer. The crowd loved them as well, so I am sure we will be seeing a lot more from these kick ass guys soon. Their new album went up for sale on Monday the 30th so take a listen.
