Isolation can often result in unique outcomes. Hailing from the tiny, cold, untamed and detached Australian state that is Tasmania, PSYCROPTIC have become an unparalleled act in the enigmatic worldwide movement commonly known as death metal. Fifteen years have passed since their formation in 1999, the band having since released five critically acclaimed studio albums, all of which show an organic progression along a clandestine path from which they will never stray.
PSYCROPTIC have performed in all corners of the globe alongside names that need no introduction to those in the know — Cannibal Corpse, Suicide Silence, Decapitated, The Faceless, Obituary, Carcass, Nile, The Black Dahlia Murder, Origin, Kataklysm, Aborted, Despised Icon, Suffocation, Veil of Maya, Cryptopsy, Misery Index, Vader, Born of Osiris, Hate Eternal... you get the picture, right? Metal legend Max Cavalera has also been sporting the band’s merch in recent promotional photos, bringing things full circle from the days when they were influenced by Sepultura in their youth. It’s safe to say that PSYCROPTIC‘s place in the history of heavy metal is solidified, and that everything that happens from here on in is simply a bonus.
