Eddie Hermida Says TAIM’s CJ McMahon Is A Sellout

Speaking with live-metal.net, Suicide Silence’s frontman Eddie Hermida opens up on the "feud" with Thy Art Is Murder that recently sparked off online. Hermida in particlar criticized Thy Art Is Murder for being stuck in a deathcore rut and spoofing U.S. President Donald Trump‘s campaign hats with TAIM's new "Make Deathcore Great Again"-hats.

Offers Hermida: "Thy Art Is Murder absolutely saw an opportunity and ran with it, and honestly, they did the silliest thing you could ever do in mimicking somebody like Trump and say that they are not selling out. They are literally going, “Hey, we’re not sell-outs, but please buy this hat. You need to buy this hat.” It’s completely backwards thinking. They’re looking for their fans to feed into the chaos. They’re looking for the attention, and that’s fine. It goes exactly with what I said—we don’t need that kind of attention anymore. I praise them for jumping on an opportunity just like they should. When you’re desperate for making money, you’re going to serve the fans, you’re going to create the same music so that they can feel safe in their sound, and you’re going to try your hardest to maintain in that world.

Thy Art Is Murder Makes Vocalist Return Official

Australia's incendiary extreme act Thy Art Is Murder confirmed the return of vocalist CJ McMahon by releasing a video clip for the new song "No Absolution."

Guitarist Andy Marsh recently spoke on McMahon's return and the brand new track: "A little over a year ago we were left in a pickle when CJ had finally reached his breaking point - the physical, emotional and mental stresses of touring, and the lifestyle had taken its toll on him. After the dust had settled we had time to speak amongst ourselves, and with him, and we were all able to get on the same page.

"He was able to take time off from the road and work consistently, tick off some life goals like getting married, and enjoy the routine and familiarity of life at home with his friends and family.

"Conversely the rest of us kept going, touring relentlessly, playing bigger tours to more people than ever before, going to new countries for the very first time, and had a blast taking a few great vocalists and mates out for the ride with us while we weathered the storm and figured things out. Special thanks must go out to Monte Barnard, Nicholas Arthur, Lochlan Watt, and every other vocalist who took the time to apply in our discrete vocalist auditions. More...
