[Interview] Astrodeath and Mountain Wizard Death Cult talk “Wretched Invasion” split 7”, Aftermath Fest and more!

Astrodeath and Mountain Wizard Death Cult are two unstoppable forces in the Australian heavy scene.

Not only have the bands built up cult like followings but also gained reputations for being among the country’s must see live acts alongside hard hitting luminaries King Parrot, Black Rheno and Dr. Colossus to name a few.

Both hailing from Sydney, Astrodeath and The Wizzie’s have crossed paths on many occasions, sharing the stage and forming an alliance that has seen the bands team up for a new split 7” single titled ‘Wretched Invasion’, comprising of Astrodeath’s heavy melodic masterpiece Invasion and MWDC’s fave melting Wretch (out now via Tuff Cuff Records).

Not only that, the masters of sludge and doom will be hitting the road together later in the year on the ‘Wretched Invasion Tour’ which see’s them both take part in the massive ‘Aftermath’ touring festival dates and side shows with many other Aussie legends not to be missed.

The Everblack Podcast sat down with Astrodeath’s Tim Lancken and Mountain Wizard Death Cult’s Chris Chaplin to talk about the ‘Wretched Invasion’ Split 7” single, upcoming tour including Aftermath Festival dates, their mutual respect, radioactive beer, future releases and more!
