When your guitarist’s sound shuts off mid-set, you improvise the guitar solo with doo-doo-doo’s in your vocals. When the crowd isn’t moving fast enough, you jump down into the circle pit and get shit moving. At least, that’s how Thy Art Is Murder vocalist CJ McMahon runs the show. And of course, nothing says “brutal” more than a banana yellow guitar and a popsicle shirt, right Andy? Check out some metal photos of Thy Art Is Murder from the Holmdel, New Jersey date of Mayhem Fest 2015 below!

Most bands jump around a lot on stage. The self-described “emotional” band Sworn In like to lurk. Wielding their chaotic blend of metal, industrial, and -core sounds at Rockstar Mayhem Fest on Tuesday, they sneered and stared at the New Jersey crowd who weren’t sure whether to mosh or take cover. Which will you choose?
