Thy Art Is Murder + The Acacia Strain + Fit For An Autopsy Split Gets New Trailer

Thy Art Is Murder

It’s a deathcore deviant’s dream come true: a three-way split EP between Blacktown badarses Thy Art Is Murder, Massachusetts maniacs The Acacia Strain, and Jersey shred-heads Fit For An Autopsy. Yes, this is actually happening… Yes, we’re totally losing our shit.

The Depression Sessions is the result of a single, fluid production process between the three bands and production superstar Will Putney. Alongside a new cut from each band – Thy Art’s “They Will Know Another” (which we got a taste of a little while back), Acacia’s “Sensory Deprivation” and Autopsy’s “Flatlining” – listeners will be treated to three unusual spins on a classic rock jam: Thy Art tackled RAMMSTEIN‘s “Du Hast”, Acacia gave Soundgarden‘s “Black Hole Sun” a beating, and Autopsy went apeshit on Nine Inch Nails‘ “The Perfect Drug”. You can stop drooling whenever you feel ready.

In the lead-up to the EP’s August 12th release date, a new trailer has dropped detailing how the bands came together with the idea for what’s easily going to be the most explosive deathcore release of 2016. It’s the first of an expected series of studio videos, all of which will hopefully drop before the record does, because mate, we’re gonna need a serious distraction with how hyped we are for this release.

Thy Art Is Murder are touring Australia this month and next alongside fellow scene-slayers Graves and I, The Valiance. No word yet on when The Acacia Strain and Fit For An Autopsy are gonna make their way down, but here’s hoping it won’t be too long of a wait!

Check out the trailer for The Depression Sessions below!
