Follow Minus Life on Social Media

Brisbane extreme metal MINUS LIFE have today unleashed on the world their latest lyric video. The track, THE HYPTONIST, is the latest track to be released off their 2021 album CONTORTED REALITY. Hitting us this March, this track shows again just why MINUS LIFE are one of Australia’s premier extreme metal acts.

Described by the band as a track that “delves into the psychological mind games, truths, lies and the extremes of emotions that make up human relationships,” sit tight as you are taken on a “melodic/thrash metal journey with soaring harmonized vocals, pounding rhythms, crunching guitars and a hypnotizing orchestral arrangement.” Combined with the spectacular visualizer provided by STEREO 27 Production, THE HYPNOTIST lyric video is an audio-visual metal masterpiece.

The new release comes just in time for MINUS LIFE to set off on their tour run in Australia, playing the huge Adelaide metal festival THE NEW DEAD in April and the inaugural METAL HEALTH festival in Brisbane. With more dates to be announced in other areas of Australia after this release, MINUS LIFE are ready to hypnotise the masses once again with their relentless style of metal.

The Video was premiered yesterday at our partners:

The Album is available at Minus Life's Bandcamp page:

Minus Life formed in 2002 with the common purpose to create a brand of extreme music, that funnelled the essence of their influences, but had its own unique sound. In 2004, the band released their first album 'Eternal Urban Megacide' to rave reviews. Minus Life quickly rose to become one of the biggest metal bands out of Brisbane touring nationally.

Their brand of metal was widely embraced and saw them share the stage with Arch Enemy, Slayer, The Haunted, Dark Tranquility, Nevermore, Mastadon, Psycroptic, Alarum, Alchemist, Blood Duster and many more. Minus Life also played large Australian festivals such as Big Day Out (2007), Metal for the Brain (2005 & 2006), Brute Force Festival, Overcranked (2006) and Market Day (2006).

Minus Life disbanded in 2007 but came together again in 2018 with a sold out return show in Brisbane to a 300 capacity venue. The band released a single 'Manipulation of the Masses' in 2019 and backed this up with a festival return at Dead of Winter (2019) and sold out double headlining show in 2020. The time has now come for the next chapter in the Minus Life evolution. With the impending release of their sophomore return album 'Contorted Reality' in late 2021, the new incarnation is ready to rise once more.
