Hailing from the remote island of Tasmania, Australia, PSYCROPTIC have progressively carved a niche of their own within today’s overcrowded metal scene. Staying clear of trends, PSYCROPTIC incorporate many elements of music – extreme and otherwise – to capture a sound that is uniquely their own: a precise blend of brutality, intensity and groove. The result being: Australia’s most respected and recognised metal act worldwide!
Here’s the rest of the official announcement:
Since the release of the bands 5th studio album, “The Inherited Repression” in February this year, PSYCROPTIC have kept to a busy worldwide touring schedule, showcasing material new and old to mesmerizing effect and now is the time to bring the show to WA! Do not miss out on this homegrown world class act in the midst of their sonically booming prime!
Commented Psycroptic guitarist, Joe Haley, “The Inherited Repression” is far and away my favourite Psycroptic album thus far. This album is quite different from anything we have done in terms of song writing and structure, and we spent a lot longer writing and demoing the songs before we recorded it, which you can tell. It’s a very dynamic album – the fast elements faster, the slow elements slower, and a lot of light and dark binding it together. It’s a very catchy album as well – you can tap your foot, bang your head or anything else you want. Basically it has a lot of groove on it from start to finish.”
