“Relentlessly heavy and fun old school Thrash Metal!”
— Jake Sproule (Whoretopsy)
The chaotic Thrash Assault from Melbourne, Australia
With an EP released (Pay to Pray, 2015), a live album (Live in the Forge, 2019) and an album on the way (Destiny Awaits, TBC), ARMATA has quickly developed a loyal fan base in Melbourne, Australia. Becoming renowned for their energetic live performances backed by crushing riffs and rough vocals, ARMATA is carving out its own niche in the growing thrash metal community in Australia
With similarities drawn from thrash metal juggernauts SLAYER, KREATOR and EXODUS and playing alongside some of Australia's leading metal acts including PSYCROPTIC, WHORETOPSY, LORD, HARLOTT, WITCHGRINDER, DESECRATOR and IN MALICE'S WAKE, ARMATA is set to take Australia by storm on a conquest to destroy the world with a chaotic assault of Thrash Metal!
"Exceptionally well led both on and off stage by frontman DYLAN GATT, ARMATA are undoubtedly one of the forerunners in the new wave of Aussie thrash. Ever professional, this hard working quartet's energy is evident in their catalogue of fast paced thrash anthems. With a style likened to that of early KREATOR and a hunger to match, ARMATA is a name that is sure to be a mainstay in the future of Aussie thrash metal. Expect big things!"
