»Tyrant«, the follow-up to the band’s 2011 debut »Servitude«, was created in the oppressive heat of Brisbane’s summer with THY ART IS MURDER’s Andy Marsh producing and Mark Lewis (WHITECHAPEL, CARNIFEX) of Audio Hammer mixing. With a thematic fixation on dystopian nightmares and hostile extraterrestrial encounters, the relentless barrage AVERSIONS CROWN churn out across these ten songs will soundtrack either a solid Halo session or the coming invasion.
The striking artwork was created by Swedish visionary Pär Olofsson, who has worked with acts like PSYCROPTIC, ABORTED, ABYSMAL DAWN, and THE FACELESS.
The lyric video for the band’s latest slab of astral punishment, 'The Glass Sentient', is available for viewing on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tFYdzSB8bI&list=UUoxg3Kml41wE3IPq-PC-LQw
Track listing for »Tyrant«:
01. Hollow Planet
02. The Glass Sentient
05. Earth Steriliser
10. Faith Collapsing
Formed in 2010 in Queensland’s Brisbane, the same sunny stretch of Australian coastline that spawned PORTAL and THE AMITY AFFLICTION, AVERSIONS CROWN developed their pummeling blend of mechanized brutality 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 U.K. with acts like THY ART IS MURDER, THE ACACIA STRAIN, OCEANO, ALL SHALL PERISH, and CATTLE DECAPITATION. They’ve also appeared on Warped Tour.
The late 2014 impact of »Tyrant« will follow the viral success of the album’s first video, 'Hollow Planet'. Originally self-released as a stand-alone single, the video’s crushing bombast and sinister visuals have helped it rack up almost half a million views to date.
