Thy Art Is Murder –
By Dave Schwartz
Australian deathcore band, Thy Art Is
Murder, released their fourth studio album “Dear Desolation”
on August 18, 2017 via Nuclear Blast Records. The record
has quickly become their most successful release to date.
“Dear Desolation” is a slow evolution in styles and expands
from deathcore toward deathmetal. It has a stronger
atmospheric vibe to it which guitarist Andy Marsh attributes
to less guitar layering.
Thy Art Is Murder recorded “Dear
Desolation” in New Jersey at producer Will Putney’s studio and
took the unusual approach of rotating band members in to
record their pieces. As a result, there was never than a
