Australian Metal band, Thy Art Is Murder, has released a lyric video for their song “Violent Reckoning”, which is off the band’s latest album Holy War. The album, which was released this past June, debuted at number 7 on the the Australian Recordings Industry Association charts.
Check out the lyric video below as well as a statement from guitarist Andy Marsh below.
“Late last year, we entered the studio in secret to create our follow up to Hate, free of expectation and public pressure. What we came out with was a reaction to things going on around the world that crawl under our skin, that make us feel sick to be alive. Musically, it is darker, faster and more technical than anything we’ve done in the past and it hits hard lyrically. We wrote about concerns of ours, real issues, hardships that people are facing around the world today. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Thy Art record if a lot of those affairs weren’t rooted in religion somehow, and what better way to sum up the state of all things than by entitling our album Holy War. This is our war on racism, homophobia, child abuse, animal cruelty and all evil born of religious immunity, indoctrination, and ignorance. It is ultimately a push for secularism and humanism. Without it, we will be left in the hands of mad men.”
