It’s clear Aversions Crown have leveled-up their sound on Xenocide: the new album from the Brisbane-based unit furnishes a wall of treacherous grooves, brutalizing breakdowns, and flailing riffs that feverishly attack in vicious performance.
Aversions Crown formed in 2010 in Queensland’s Brisbane, and quickly emerged an unstoppable force in the world of modern Deathcore.
The band has gutted stages around the globe on treks with the likes of Thy Art is Murder, The Acacia Strain, Oceano, All Shall Perish, and Cattle Decapitation, and have completed stints on the Warped Tour.
The band released Servitude in 2011 on Nuclear Blast, with its successor, Tyrant coming three years later in 2014. Both albums introduced Aversions Crown’s relentless shelling of ferocious music, breathless speed, and technical precision.
On Xenocide, Aversions Crown infuse their velocious sound with added abrasive, mechanized power among their thematic fixation on “dystopian nightmares” and “hostile extraterrestrial encounters,” on ten truly brutal tunes.
Xenocide was recorded in Brisbane and mixed by Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, Carnifex) of Audio Hammer Studios, and was released in January 20th, 2017 on Nuclear Blast Records.
