Thy Art Is Murder - The Adversary

Thy Art Is Murder - The Adversary

The Adversary is Thy Art Is Murder’s debut album is of the Deathcore genre. This album was released in 2010 by Skull And Bones Records. Thy Art Is Murder is an Australian Band originating From Sydney New South Wales.

The Adversary is a Deathcore album, which is rare to find this of quality Deathcore coming out of Australia. The Adversary is an incredible album considering that their last EP Infinite Death was disappointing to my standards of Deathcore.  This album is full of what a good Deathcore album should be, a mix of screams/growls, breakdowns, blast beats and solos.

This album is full of energy and is should be up there with Deathcore Giants Whitechapel, their musical styles are similar. There are many surprisingly great songs on this album, the song Laceration Penetration has a heavy breakdown in it and a double kick so fast it will make your ears bleed. The lead singers growls sound almost the same as the growls from Carnifex and Carnifex’s vocals get a thumbs up from me. Screamed vocals are a little bit rarer in the album but still common and are up to scratch.

Although Thy Art Is Murder has shown massive improvement over their last EP (Infinite Death) it still has some work to do before it can be as big as Carnifex or Job For A Cowboy (some say they are Deathcore and some say they are Death Metal, I am using them as an example of Deathcore in this case.) I know this may sound dumb (considering that this is Deathcore) but I think some songs should be more melodic, because even in songs by other mainstream Deathcore bands such as Carnifex, Bring Me The Horizon and Suicide Silence there are some melodic elements not just bang bang Scream Growl, this would be ok for a band that is Brutal Death but not so much Deathcore and this is just my oppinon. Also there are a few guitar solos which aren’t any good; they lack speed, melody or originality.

There are few interesting things about this album. The first one is the incredibly fast double kick in some of their songs and also the speed at which they play at, songs such as The False Prophet. Also that I am also surprised that they did not put their only good song from the Infinite Death EP Infinite Death on this Album I was actually hoping for it.

Still this album as a whole wasn’t that bad considering how bad their EP was. There are still a few hurdles to cross as for the band itself and since I live In Australia I should he hear more of Thy Art Is Murder in The future. I give The Adversary a 15/20
