The brand new ‘Xenocide’ album from crushing Brisbane outfit Aversions Crown is here to destroy everything in its path.

Off the back of a long touring cycle for their Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut, ‘Tyrant’, which saw Aversions Crown playing alongside Soilwork, Thy Art Is Murder, Attila, Parkway Drive, Psycroptic, Rings Of Saturn and The Acacia Strain, hitting festivals like Unify Gathering and Taste Of Anarchy as well as selling out headline shows on the other side of the world in Germany and the UK, the band refined and sharpened their already potent mix of brutal death metal speed and violence, adding eldritch atmospherics, audio manipulation and vocalist Mark Poida’s otherworldly vocal range and ability into a new level of destruction.

With teaser tracks ‘Parasites’ and ‘Erebus’ released over the course of the year, hinting at the new direction, the band teamed up with frequent collaborators Adam Merker at Studio Anders Debeerz in Brisbane and Mark Lewis from Audio Hammer in Florida to create ‘Xenocide’. On the goal in mind when writing ‘Xenocide’, guitarist mastermind Chris Cougan says “we wanted to accentuate our strengths as Aversions Crown; the extreme drumming, the guitar interplay, Mark’s awesome vocals and really work on the arrangements instead of having a bunch of riffs on top of some blasts.”

With a loose conceptual framework at play across ‘Xenocide’s tales of destruction, revenge, reanimation and murder, Poida enthuses “I really got an awesome brutal canvas to paint a horrible evil lyrical picture on. We pushed it to the limits of our songwriting ability and are very proud of the record.”
