Blasting out from a Sith temple located in Melbourne, Australia, Sithlord combine old school Euro style thrash metal with sci-fi and fantasy lyrics to create a galaxy of their own. With equal nods to Star Wars, other space operas and action classics, Sithlord attack with lightsaber precision and Death Star like heaviness.
Featuring members of Cemetery Urn & Inverloch…… & previous members of Hobbs Angel Of Death (live lineup), Persecution (live lineup), Eskhaton & Atomizer…. Sithlord has shared the stage with prestigious acts such as: Nocturnus AD (USA), Abramelin, Denouncement Pyre, Vassafor (NZ), Tzun Tzu (SA), Harlott, Anarazel, Bastardizer (NSW), Vexation & many more.
With a new weapon in it’s final stages of construction & scheduled to be digitally released in 2024, the assault on the Jedi & Rebel forces will be relentless.
May the Dark Side of the Force be with you always &…… Thrash Til Death!
Sithlord have cracked the style from the formative years of thrash metal, those early years when a cacophony of raw brutality ruled the airways and spawned “the big 4”.
Review by Iron Matthew – Metal Gods TV
While they don’t pull much from the actual movies save for a few laser blasts and a lightsaber ignition, the album hits hard enough to feel like one is being run through by a podracer.
Review by Colin McNamara – BRUTALISM
The main exploit SITHLORD achieve is to offer us a synthesis of the style of the groundbreaking Thrash bands of the 80s (KREATOR, SODOM, DESTRUCTION, SEPULTURA and even primitive DARK ANGEL) without sounding derivative or unoriginal
Review by Edouard Vergriete – voicesfromthedarkside.de
Who’d have thought you could blend death/thrash metal with evil Star Wars themes and actually make it work! Leave it to those crazy Aussie’s for yet another killer band to surface that screams evil-80’s-death/thrash!
