THY ART IS MURDER Dear Desolation Limited Clear/Black Splattered Vinyl LP

Limited Edition Coloured Vinyl (Clear/Black + White Splatter) Combining classic and authentic death metal elements that invoke the renegade, spirit-crushing, monstrosity of early Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, and Decapitated with the precision rhythmic assault of Meshuggah and the breakdown-infused bounce of Black Dahlia Murder, Thy Art Is Murder have redefined a once cast aside and maligned subgenre, proudly reenergizing and representing the best in extremity. The band's music remains uncompromising, building upon the savage momentum of the controversially outspoken Holy War (2015) and the punishing Hate (2012). Dear Desolation continues the band's evolutionary trajectory, remaining consistently inventive and diverse without sacrificing the band's established identity. The adventurous spirit of the band's unprecedented collaboration with The Acacia Strain and Fit For An Autopsy, released as The Depression Sessions, continues unabated, expanding and informing the band's already confident creativity. When guitarists Sean Delander and Andy Marsh reconvened to begin work on what would become the band's fourth album, they kept the material anchored in the rhythmic death metal that's become their signature, but with an emphasis on songs that are both bigger and more straightforward. Dear Desolation is lean and stripped down. Holed up in New Jersey for several weeks, the duo amassed around 25 songs between them, trimming the fat with the assistance of long-time producer Will Putney (Every Time I Die, The Amity Affliction, For Today) until only the 12 strongest compositions remained. Drummer Lee Stanton and bassist Kevin Butler laid down their contributions, with powerhouse vocalist CJ McMahon knocking out awe-inspiring performances, with Marsh's lyrics, in less than two weeks. Thematically the album expands beyond vicious polemic and vehemently contrarian invective into broader storytelling, contemplative death anxiety, and meditations on mortality and morality. It's an album of culture, environment, community; ties that bind, the panic that unwinds, and the constant, urgent primal scream. Dear Desolation is custom built for the festival stage, organically streamlined to translate to a wide audience as skilfully as the central sound at Thy Art Is Murder's core has resonated in sweaty clubs and theatres since the band's formation in 2006. This is extreme metal for the people, torchbearers for a primal style that doesn't die.
