Sydney’s brutal groove merchants Black Rheno are back at it again with their first headlining tour since releasing their debut album ‘Noise Smasher’. All through May the boys will be hitting the east coast bringing their hell raising live shows to major cities and with few rural towns along the way. Teaming up with a plethora of amazing support acts in every town they hit and no doubt bringing the full blown insanity that Black Rheno has become known for these will be some shows not to be missed.
There’s been whispers of a new music video in the works also and if Black Rheno’s previous clips are anything to go off, surely it’ll be something wild.
Black Rheno released their debut album ‘Noise Smasher’ last October which saw them follow it up with a huge tour covering Japan, Australia & New Zealand alongside New Orleans sludge royalty EYEHATEGOD. Back home their debut LP which blends elements of sludge, metal, grindcore, stoner & groove into one big cesspit of meat-riff partying has received tonnes of attention across the board. From epic reviews, plenty of play on Triple J’s The Racket to being a featured artist on Rage TV’s ‘Wild One”. To then coming in hot at #27 on the Rage top 50 music clips for 2019 for the clip for their tune ‘Human’.
Tour Promo Clip
Black Rheno’s track record is steadily growing bigger having played shows in the US alongside the likes of Iron Reagan, Darkest Hour & Ringworm. To making their way across this wide brown land of ours time and time again with heavy hitters such as Napalm Death, Brujeria, Red Fang, Psycroptic, King Parrot, Revocation, Lock Up and Phil Anselmo & The Illegals to the most recent endeavours as mentioned above across Japan, Aus & NZ with EYEHATEGOD. Wielding only drums a guitar and a vocalist, Black Rheno have forged a name as being one of the biggest sounding 3 piece bands you’ll find and yet somehow creating a highly intensive and at times brutal display of sounds that still manage to translate into one huge party vibe atmosphere. This is definitely a band that feeds off that raw energy found at a live show when you don’t know what ups or down, left or right, you just know you have to go with it.
Be smart, catch Black Rheno on tour this May along the east coast.
