Guitarist of Decimated King, multi-instrumentalist, fan of all things music.
Thomas Thrasher has been a part of the NZ music scene since he joined the thrash metal band ‘Excessium’ in 2012, who toured the all ages venues until they disbanded late 2013. Tom then joined his current band ‘Decimated King’, who had been around for some time previously, but were undergoing personnel changes. Once things settled down, Decimated King began work on a completely revitalised sound and setlist, overhauling many of the old songs from the original EP from before Tom’s time in the group, and started playing more shows. Word ended up spreading to Timaru, Wellington, and Auckland, and before they knew it, they were booked for some of their first inter-city shows.
Decimated King are now in the process of recording their first album, which will be out before 2018, and they are preparing for what could be one of the greatest local metal shows Christchurch has seen in a while – Satanfest 2017, which spans three days and features over 20 local and international acts.
