Far beyond legendary and a living monument to fearless creativity, MAYHEM have cast an icy shadow across the world of heavy music for nearly four decades. Subversive students of the metal underground from the start, MAYHEM single-handedly pioneered a new strain of black metal in their native Norway, taking the nascent genre by the scruff of the neck and hurling it into the pitch-black abyss.
Featuring iconic members Atilla Csihar, Necrobutcher and Hellhammer, and with the reputation of being one of the most controversial live acts to ever disgrace this planet, MAYHEM propel their latest rituals to Australia this forthcoming January.
Alongside this volatile, Nordic, leviathan will be comrades in New Zealand’s unorthodoxly oppressive death metal contingent ULCERATE, and the absurdly abrasive three headed savage that is Australia’s WEREWOLVES. All in, the ‘Thalassic Ritual’ serves as an indisputable pilgrimage for the extreme arts enthusiast.

Jan 19th – The Factory Theatre, Sydney
Jan 20th – The Triffid, Brisbane
Jan 21st – The Croxton, Melbourne
Jan 22nd – Lions Arts Factory, Adelaide
