Thy Art Is Murder and the story behind the Depression Sessions EP
Three deathcore heavyweights have combined for a special EP – and it features Thy Art Is Murder’s swansong with CJ
2015 ended dramatically for Thy Art Is Murder. After six years and three albums, vocalist CJ McMahon announced that it was no longer financially viable for him to be part of a full-time metal band. Citing, too, the strain of touring and being away from his family, he held a fire sale for his clothing label, literally sold the stage jacket off his back, and bowed out. But CJ’s final work had yet to air: his contribution to The Depression Sessions, a split between Thy Art, The Acacia Strain and Fit For An Autopsy. Guitarist Andy Marsh gives us the lowdown on the release, life after CJ and bringing the fun back to metal.
