The isolated surrounds of Adelaide has spawned some of the biggest names in Australian hardcore – the likes of Day Of Contempt and I Killed The Prom Queen: the two very bands that Cry Murder shared a stage with for their first ever show back in 2003. With influences stretching from blistering death metal to the precise industrial metal of Fear Factory and melodic shredding of Sweden’s Arch Enemy, they held their own, stepping up to share bigger stages with major internationals such as Bleeding Through, As I Lay Dying, Hatebreed and Converge. 2009 leads Cry Murder to the release of the debut full-length, “Above Us The Waves”. Tracking was completed in late 2008 at Capitalsound and Slaughterhouse Studios in their hometown with Zack Ohren (The Red Shore, All Shall Perish) handling mixing duties in his Castle Ultimate Studios, Oakland California.
Above Us The Waves is out through Resist Records/Shock on February 28 with a tour commencing in March.
