Hidden Intent

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sun 17 Jul ’16, 8:00pm


Valhalla, 154 Vivian Street, Wellington



With local supports: Meat, Winterborn & Bloodshot

Like the riotous music they play, since their inception in 2011, Adelaide-based thrash metal three-piece Hidden Intent have been carving their way through the masses with their unabashedly unapologetic ‘80s-throwback thrash metal, a form of music that wholly embraces its American and European roots in the Bay Area, Scandinavian and Teutonic thrash scenes. Being lauded for their “energetic” live show and the “party thrash” they play for their audience, the Adelaide trio have continued to build their name well into the now.

With lead vocalist/bassist Chris McEwen (ex-Abyzmal, ex-Obsidian Aspect) at the helm, and the lead guitars of riff-lord and backing vocalist Phil Bennett (ex-Desert Eagle,TKBF), the trio is completed with the more recent addition of Paul Lewis (Hawkai, ex-Death Boundaries, ex-Tidal) on drums.

Entering into 2016, Hidden Intent ride off the back of such accomplishments as releasing their first full-length album, ‘Walking Through Hell’, through Punishment 18 Records (Italy); supporting Danish thrash metal icons Artillery for their ‘Made in China’ 11-date tour in April/May 2015; being chosen as the Adelaide support last year for German power metal legends, Helloween; playing large festivals in both Australia and abroad, including The New Dead Metalfest, headlining the Bangkok Thrash Festival in Thailand, and Perth’s Metal Down-Under; as well as many more.

This year has already seen the band release their new single, “Addicted To Thrash” mastered by American record producer, mixer, guitarist and songwriter, Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Municipal Waste, Queensrÿche, Revocation), and will see the trio further release their much anticipated new EP and second full-length album towards the end of the year. 2016 is the year of thrash!
