Gig – @The Darkroom

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.
Friday February 23rd! 23/02/18
336 St Asaph St, Christchurch!
8pm – R18

Announcement: Jonty’s Departure

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.

More information to come in the following months..

Rory Tuuta

Thoughts today are with Rory, his family and friends and the wider community. It is a huge loss for all of us. Rory was one of the most talented people out, an absolutely lovely guy and a great friend. Countless memories of good times with us.
Look out for each other, be kind and caring.
Take it easy. Cheers.
