Cover shot – BLACK RHENO

Sydney’s heavy groove merchants, Black Rheno, are gearing up for a massive East Coast tour this May with a lineup of killer support acts just announced. Black Rheno is currently riding high, having recently journeyed to Austin, Texas, to record a new album with heavyweight rock/metal producer “Machine the Producer” (known for his work with bands like Clutch, Every Time I Die, Lamb Of God and more). They also recently had the honour of supporting one of heavy metal’s most influential and iconic bands, PANTERA at Adelaide Entertainment Centre.

Receiving rave reviews across the board from their excursion with Pantera, Black Rheno delivered an electrifying opening performance of the night, showcasing the high-octane live show they are renowned for. Later that evening, members of Black Rheno and King Parrot joined Pantera on stage, contributing gang vocals to the legendary tune “Walk.” It was a true celebration of the heavy grooves we have all grown up with and a unifying moment for fans, bands, and everyone involved.

While there is no official release date for the new Black Rheno record yet, anticipation is building. However, the band can’t wait and is eager to hit the road again after too long a hiatus between tours. Still energised from their monumental experience supporting Pantera, Black Rheno will be bringing their full-blown audio assault to venues across the East Coast this May. Fans can expect a sneak peek of new tunes from the upcoming record during these shows too.

The tour promises to be a series of epic heavy metal parties, with a lineup of support acts spanning various styles within the heavy music realm. From start to finish, this is going to be one wild tour, with intimate venues, killer lineups, and a reputation for insanity. These shows are set to be red hot, so securing tickets early is highly recommended.
