Thy Art Is Murder Reveals "Holy War" Details

Australia’s incendiary extreme musical export Thy Art Is Murder has revealed the cover art and track listing to upcoming third studio album "Holy War."

The album was produced and mixed by Will Putney, and "Holy War" is the band’s second release for Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The track listing is as follows:

1. Absolute Genocide
2. Light Bearer
3. Holy War
4. Coffin Dragger
5. Fur And Claw
6. Deliver Us To Evil
7. Emptiness
8. Violent Reckoning
9. Child Of Sorrow
10. Naked And Cold
11. Vengeance (Bonus Track - initial CD pressings and vinyl only)

Guitarist Andrew Marsh recently explained the origins of the new album and its title: “Finally the cat is out of the bag! 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.”
