Thy Art Is Murder might be joining Rings of Saturn in opening Summer Slaughter Tour 2013 after all!
After a neck-and-neck race, it looks like Rings of Saturn have beat out Thy Art Is Murder by a slim 1% of the vote and will be opening this year's Summer Slaughter Tour.
Whether you see it or not, deathcore has become the newest “thing." Back when Myspace was relevant, metalcore/scenecore became the norm, as so many kid began forming bands playing the same shit just to get signed. But now, deathcore has taken over. It seems every day new bands pop up playing overused guitar breakdown, ignoring the concept of riff-based songs and focusing on “the br00tz”. Unfortunately this leaves us all with only a handful of really awesome deathcore bands, and while it’s always nice, sometimes it would be great to find a new band that doesn’t sound like every other one out there and is doing awesome stuff with their music. Thy Art Is Murder are a band from the land down under who have realized this overabundance of generic bands, and have made it their mission to rectify this issue.
