Lycanthia first grew popularity within the underground metal scene in Australia, after the release of their first full length album “Myriad”, and continued this success with the momentous “Within The Walls”, which saw them peak at #11 on Australian radio stations triple j’s Australian Metal charts with the first week of release. Their success continued to grow with regular radio airplay and live performances alongside national and international acts.
In 2012 Lycanthia first released their latest album “Oligarchy”, in which they have sculpted their reactions to existence and the world into a musical expression of harsh, bleak reality. The album shows that as a band they have developed their music style with greater maturity, creativity and originality.
“Oligarchy” received rave reviews in the media and was quickly picked up by Green Media in Australia and is due to be released internationally by Hypnotic Dirge Records in March in digi-pak format.
Lycanthia are currently embarking on an Australian East Coast tour with label-mates Subterranean Disposition in support of the album re-release, and are due to support Swiss folk-metallers Eluveitie in Sydney this May.
