Formed in 2010 in Queensland’s Brisbane, AVERSIONS CROWN developed their pummeling blend of mechanized death and haunting atmospherics by utilizing three guitarists brandishing 8 string guitars. Appearing live as a wall of muscle, guitars and flailing hair, the band have logged serious road miles across Australia, Europe and the United Kingdom with acts like THY ART IS MURDER, THE ACACIA STRAIN, OCEANO, ALL SHALL PERISH, CATTLE DECAPITATION and appearances at Warped Tour.
»Tyrant« was created in the oppressive heat of Brisbane’s summer with THY ART IS MURDER’s Andy Marsh producing the ten track effort. With a thematic fixation on dystopian nightmares and hostile extraterrestrial encounters, the relentless barrage AVERSIONS CROWN churn out will soundtrack either a solid Halo session or the coming invasion.
Off the back of a long touring cycle for »Tyrant«, which saw AVERSIONS CROWN hitting festivals like Unify Gathering and Taste Of Anarchy as well as selling out headline shows on the other side of the world in Germany and the UK, the band refined and sharpened their already potent mix of brutal death metal speed and violence with eldritch atmospherics, audio manipulation and vocalist Mark Poida’s otherworldly vocal range and ability into a new level of destruction.
With teaser tracks ‘Parasites’ and ‘Erebus’ released over the course of 2016 hinting at the new direction, the band teamed up with frequent collaborators Adam Merker at Studio Anders Debeerz in Brisbane and Mark Lewis from Audio Hammer in Florida to create »Xenocide«.
AVERSIONS CROWN will take »Xenocide« to stages around the world in 2017. Get in the pit or get out of the way.
