Polish death squad Behemoth return to Australia next April on a co-headliner with Arizona’s heavy music powerhouse Job for a Cowboy, and for the first time on these shores New Orleans black metal band Goatwhore round out a night of sinister, fist-clenching, speaker-searing madness!
Job For a Cowboy backed up their hugely successful debut “Genesis” with a series of jaw dropping live shows in Australia in 2007. Their latest album “Ruination” represents a welcome throwback to a day of great, straight forward death metal albums… good old fashioned brutal American death metal. Job for A Cowboy blend stunning musicianship and cutting edge song craft to create the absolute embodiment of modern day extreme music.
Since their last visit to our shores, Behemoth have released their hell breaking opus “Evangelion” – a philosophical upheaval set to the tune of merciless, face-ripping, death metal – nine relentlessly blackened tracks of anti-liturgical fury and towering technical precision. Nine albums, six EPs and numerous world tours into an 18-year career, they’ve long since transcended their geographical roots and are operating prolifically on the global stage.
Goatwhore, influenced by the raw savagery of bands like Venom and Celtic Frost, bring an unrefined, fuck-all approach to black metal, and a career defining album in “Carving Out the Eyes of God”. In an oversaturated metal landscape where sub-genres spawn sub-sub-genres and the very definition of “metal” seems blurred by cross-pollinating madness, sacred are the bands who stay true to their roots!
