Joining us we have three amazing Aussie acts we had the privileged of sharing the stage with on our travels and one classic killer local band!
Blurring the lines between European melodic death metal and the new wave of American heavy metal, ANNIHILIST, tie this vortex together with a progressive style of songwriting. Live performances are a vital aspect to Annihilist, the overly charismatic singer Harry Pendock always turning heads at shows with his often theatrical behaviour, adding a much needed element of fun to what is all too often perceived as a serious genre.
Kaerulean formed in 2012 hailing from Brisbane Australia, taking influence from Melodic Death Metal, Black Metal, Progressive Metal and Orchestral Music. Since inception they have self-produced their works and strived to avoid mimicking conventions. Their intention is for the listener to drift into concept fueled journeys and tales of the unknown.
Fenrir speed thrash metal freaks!! Their latest album Loki’s Slaughter mutilates the finesse of Classical and Romantic counterpoints in the jaws of blistering Speed Metal to create an abominable blend of balanced harmony and catastrophic entropy. If you like the unrelenting pace and scale of early Blind Guardian, the brutal grace of early Ensiferum, or just the legacy of the 80s, Fenrir is worth a listen.
Coming from the depths of the shaky city’s (Christchurch) metal underground, SWARF is here to send shards of metal particles full of energy to run a muck in your ears!!!
Insane stage presence.
We are absolutely stoked to announce we will be playing 4 shows as part of the 2018 UTSC Australian & New Zealand Metal Festival. This will be our first international shows as we cross the ditch to the mighty Australia to play 3 shows and then finish off back in Christchurch to headline the night. We can not wait to share the stage and meet with all the bands involved including Melbourne’s very own King Parrot and from Detroit U.S.A Child Bite, see you all soon! \m/

We are very stoked to be introducing to you the newest member of the Decimated King family, our new drummer: Bryce Tozer!
Bryce has been a very good friend of the band for the past few years and plays drums alongside Brad in local Thrash group “Extorted”. He has been practicing the setlist relentlessly ever since the opportunity was first mentioned to him late last year and is due to grace your ears this upcoming February.
Make sure you catch our first two performances with Bryce:
– [17/02/18] @ New City Hotel – Carnal // Vixen Execution // Decimated King // Grief.
– [23/02/18] @ darkroom – Lich King (USA) at Darkroom w/ Hidden Intent + guests.
We would like to send a huge thanks to Tess for the awesome photo shoot and to the New City Hotel for providing the location. Also we would like to give a huge shout out to Angie @ Third Eye Music NZ for all the love and support. Cheers to all the great bands we have seen and played live shows with this year and thank you to all of you for your ongoing support!
Stay tuned for many exciting things to come in 2018. Enjoy your holiday season from of all us here at Decimated King and we will definitely see you next year! \m/
McEwen DIY M&T & Churches of Steel Fest presents
Lich King (USA) and Hidden Intent
‘THE OMNICLASM’ Australian & New Zealand Tour
January / February 2018
“Lich King (USA) tour our region for the first time belting out grade-A, unapologetically straight-forward thrash metal in the vein of the 80’s Bay Area bands such as Exodus, Slayer, and Vio-lence. To date, the band has released five critically acclaimed full-length albums, each of which feature fast, headbangable riffs in modern stomp anthems and a sometimes comedic yet always violent songwriting sensibility. According to Metal Observer, “LICH KING have been defying public opinion, lampooning the self-righteous, and generally snapping necks with their furious brand of thrash metal.”
Check out their video for “Cut The Shit” here:
“Joining the furious ride is Adelaide’s thrash bangers Hidden Intent. Like the riotous music they play, HIDDEN INTENT have been carving their way through the masses with their unabashedly unapologetic ‘80s-throwback thrash metal, a form of music that wholly embraces its American and European roots in the Bay Area, Scandinavian and Teutonic thrash scenes. Being lauded for their “energetic” live show and the “party thrash” they play for their audiences, they combine with LICH KING for what will be the most thrashable tour of the year!”
Check out their video for “Addicted to Thrash” here:
Come see us join them on their Christchurch stop of the tour at The Darkoom.

Carnal // Vixen Execution // Decimated King // Grief

This will be our first show of 2018 and first show with the new lineup. We will be supporting the mighty Carnal alongside Vixen Execution and Grief! It’s going to be big, see you there!
“CARNAL return to Christchurch for the first time in 4 years!! Carnal will bring their unique blend of Brutal Slamming Tech-Death to the South Island once again, before they embark on their tour across the USA later in 2018. Fresh out of the studio recording their forthcoming album, to be released through USA Brutal Death label ‘New Standard Elite’ mid 2018. Carnal look forward to delivering a relentless live set to Christchurch, the city in which half of the members originated from.”
Don’t forget to catch us the following weekend at Lich King (USA) at Darkroom w/ Hidden Intent + guests!
Decimated King is now on Bandcamp, go and check it out! We currently have some old releases available for you to purchase at a price of your choosing! Just follow the link: https://decimatedking.bandcamp.com
As a select few have already heard, our drummer and very good friend Jonty Verkerk has decided to leave the band to pursue his own goals. It has been an absolutely solid 10 years of blast beats, grooves, travelling, parties, laughs and good times with the Jont. We wish him all the best for any future endeavors and remain on very good terms with our brother!
You can catch our last booked gig with Jonty Sunday [29/10/17] as part of Satanfest 2017. Come down and see us 5 together one last time, cheers for the support.
