Thy Art Is Murder
Aug 29th 2012 | 8:39am | Scott Fitzsimons
Shock label imprints Halfcut and Permanent have signed a new artist each, with punk label Halfcut signing Western Sydney metal graduates Thy Art Is Murder and Permanent nabbing Sydney rapper Chance Waters.

Regulars of the Western Sydney hardcore/metal traps, five piece Thy Art Is Murder have found a new area of success in recent European travels – as many local heavy outfits do. On top of early demos, they have an EP Infinite Death and album The Adversary, while their forthcoming record was recorded with Will Putney – Lamb Of God, The Amity Affliction). They will release their new album in Spring this year.

Halfcut's roster also includes Gallows and While She Sleeps.

Chance Waters – formerly Phatchance – has been enjoying recent triple j airpaly with latest single Maybe Tomorrow, and Permanent will release his album later this year. Previous record Inkstains has already garnered Waters a level of notoriety in Australia, which he is looking to redevelop under the new moniker.

Editor's note: Correction made to indicate that Will Putney is producing Thy Art's upcoming record.
