Christmas Chaos 2010
Since releasing their debut EP “Infinite Death” in 2008 Thy Art Is Murder have demanded attention throughout Australia and internationally. The 5-piece death metal band from western Sydney have destroyed all unwritten laws of the Australian heavy music scene whilst apologizing to no one.
They have since gone from strength to strength on the back of their debut album “The Adversary” which was released through Skull and Bones Records/STOMP. After a successful stint on The Mistake Tour earlier this year, and several sold out headline runs, the band will return to Byron for Christmas Chaos on December 16th.
Joining Thy Art Is Murder will be local kids In Hearts Wake, who have had an impressive year with several tours and a new release under their belt. Also on the bill are Sydney siders Shinto Katana who released their latest effort ‘We Can’t Be Saved’ through Dogfight Records earlier this year and are due to head out on tour with Emmure (USA) in January. Rounding out the line up will be local up and coming bands Face Hate and Think Twice.

Formed in 2005 by members of Within Blood, Shotpointblank and Mindsnare, Melbourne quintet Samsara wasted little time in establishing themselves as one of the hardest hitting outfits in Australia’s thriving hardcore scene.
Recorded by Kurt Ballou of Converge at Melbourne’s Three Phase Studios, Samsara’s debut full-length ‘The Emptiness’ (Trial And Error, 2007) was a vicious slab of metallic hardcore that saw the band land supports with everyone from Terror and Madball through to Hatebreed.
After the loss of imposing front man Luke Bainbridge and drummer Tim Shearman in 2009, one could be forgiven for thinking that Samsara’s time in the spotlight was over, however the introduction of Face Eater’s Nick Vine (vocals) and Mat Woodhouse (drums) breathed new life into the (then) fledgling group. Fast forward twelve-months and Samsara have delivered their heaviest and most musically accomplished effort yet, Instinct Over Influence.
Once again enlisting Ballou to helm the sessions, Instinct Over Influence picks up where their debut left off, with Vine’s multi-dimensional performance behind the mic giving Samsara yet another weapon in their already-impressive musical arsenal. From the frenzied guitar solos of “No Peace” through to the visceral riffing of “Skin And Bone”, Samsara are the proud owners of one of the year’s most crushing heavy releases.
