Also a big thanks to everyone involved in making 2018 what it was for us. Those who came to shows, everyone involved in organising them, all the bands we played with, everyone who has brought merch and everyone who has just been around for the fucking rowdy times. From playing with some of the sickest bands to playing our first Australian shows it has been nothing short of amazing.
Decimated King will be joining the mighty Scorn Of Creation on the South Island leg of their 2018 New Zealand tour. This will be insane with notable acts such as The Black Dahlia Murder, Silent Torture, Mercy, Grey Skies Over Rapture, Seas Of Conflict and more TBA! Even better all shows (excluding The Black Dahlia Murder 29/09/18) are only $10!!
You can catch us:

$10 – R18

“Following the release of their crushing fourth LP ‘Dear Desolation’ which spurred a sold out Australian tour in February this year, Thy Art Is Murder will bring their relentless aggression to a venue near you this October. Kiwi/euro hardcore inspired Xile and Christchurch’s Decimated King will come along for the ride.
‘Dear Desolation’ debuted at #5 on the ARIA charts last year, which was just the beginning of yet another slew of successful tour dates around Australia and the globe. Alongside epic international acts Emmure and Fit For An Autopsy, TAIM easily sold out their Australian tour in February this year before charging over to the US for 30+ co-headline dates with slam legends Dying Fetus.
If that isn’t enough, the band has just finished their longest ever European tour, unleashing their chaos onto a new city almost daily. The trip saw them headlining the metal stage of Europe’s beloved Download Festival, and gracing fabled metal festivals With Full Force and Graspop Metal Meeting.”

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!
Annihilist (Aussie). www.facebook.com/annihilistofficial http://annihilistofficial.com/
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 (Aussie). www.facebook.com/Kaerulean
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 (Aussie) https://www.facebook.com/FenrirAustralia https://fenriraustralia.bandcamp.com/
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.
SWARF (NZ) https://www.facebook.com/Swarfnz/
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/
