Most Precious Blood says Thy Art Is Murder 'ripped off' album cover

9/8/2015 1:42:35 PM PT   comments [65]

When Thy Art Is Murder revealed the cover artwork of their then-forthcoming LP, Holy War, this past spring, there were a few people who mentioned its similarity to Most Precious Blood's 2003 effort, Our Lady of Annihilation. To refresh your memory, here are the two covers side-by-side:


Thy Art Is Murder and Most Precious Blood album covers


If they had any thoughts on the matter, Most Precious Blood has kept them private... until today, that is. Several hours ago we used Twitter to promote our news item about Thy Art Is Murder being barred from two Disney venues, and Most Precious Blood used the opportunity to call out the band. You can view the exchange below.

The trolling attempt from MPB is really tacky based on the fact that their cover is still way beyond better.
Theyre older and are fortunate enough to not have a gayy band name like Thy Art Is Murder. Im embarrassed just typing that.
Shit band .shit cover

This tweet was literally the only thing that they have done in like...a decade? Fusco doesn't even post here anymore. Pansy

Most precious blood is still around ?? Aren't they in their 40s? Sorry guys but that band was generic as fck and I wouldn't consider them as a good hardcore band. Especially when they started that horrible singing crap. Thy art is murder, keep killing it and break mpb's back. Thanks

No girl core queen band can top MPB. Being new or old doesn't make you more or less shitty. Thy Art is Murder is a garbage band with garbage music that steals ideas, plain and simple. Their songs are boring repetitive bullshit. fck this retard nucore tumblr teen wave shit. fck Thy Art is Murder

Lol are you kidding ? And mpd didn't sound like everyone else out there ? They were doing the same BS everyone else was doing. They were one terrible band. Every song sounded the same. The singing they tried adding was awful.
anonymous   posted 9/8/2015 6:53:18 PM
How can you really hate on MPB? A great band. It's a blatant rip and you get called out then start talking shit about the band you ripped? They probably don't know who Bad Brains is either...

I bet you think bane is good too. Lol. Get a life. You're an idiot when it comes to his hardcore shit. A band that had one semi decent cd does not make them a good band. At least thy art keeps putting out awesome shit.

MPB and Indecision were both totally fcking whack back in the 90s. No legit hardcore fans liked that band. Saw them so many times opening for other bands while the crowd just ignored them. Fat, northeast suburban kids were the only people who kinda cared
anonymous   posted 9/8/2015 8:17:55 PM
MPB lived in the shadow of so many other bands. Irrelevant donkeys

but i suppose "legit" hardcore fans listen to shit like Thy Art Is Murder, Oceano, and Chunky Captain Chunk.

Bane is hardcores fanboy gay band. No one really likes them. They just like them to be "cool"

As soon as someone gives Rob Fusco a phone book to sit on so he can see the computer he's gonna read all about this and get bummed.

Regardless of preference between bands... They did totally rip off that album cover... I mean come on...

yeah for real i would love to pick on MPB and see what kind of shit they were ripping off when they were releasing stuff
anonymous   posted 9/8/2015 10:15:00 PM
Rob Fusco is one of, if not the most douchey persons I've ever met in my life. I went from loving everything he did to realizing how much of liar and an ass hat he is in 2.5 seconds when I asked to take a picture with him. He snubbed me and made me feel like I was 2 inches tall. I will never support any more of his projects. fck that dude. I like how he uses God to make money though. Good try dck cheese.

How can you say MPB was generic and playing same shit as everyone else? That's totally false. Also, my old band toured with them 3 times. 2 of those times, MPB headlined the tour. Most shows were packed out. Kids piling on singing the songs, etc. not ignoring them. Also, keep lying, thy art is murder. Ive never heard of you until this post. Checked you out and straight garbage. Ooof! Also, Rob mpb was a nerd.

Cause a child is the same as a woman... The only resemblance is the bomb vest which looks like one is c4 and one dynamite. Oh no it's a similar idea that was changed and made different. I mean Dillinger Escape Plan had mor of a case with The Ghost Inside. I enjoy both bands but it sounds like MPB needs some attention since they were forgotten about by their old vocalist who went to Recon
anonymous   posted 9/9/2015 7:28:38 AM
who cares, they both suck. Indecision all the way.
anonymous   posted 9/9/2015 7:54:27 AM
definitely not a rip of.
They are similar via the centered topics but yeah, MPB are sour they are irrelevant. It's like my old man is embarrassing me cause he finally figured out the internet, stfu. I doubt they are even straight edge and vegetarian and have nothing else to do but talk shit and reflect on the past.

It's probably too much for you to grasp that I thought MPB/Indecision sucked in the 90s/00s and think all of these bands you mentioned suck now.
anonymous   posted 9/9/2015 9:14:56 AM
Well, yeah, that's what they do. They rip bands off. Repeatedly. Why would it end at just their music? Considering they ripped off Whitechapel, Suicide Silence and Carnifex. They're just the Australian version of those bands with no identity. This is nothing new for them.

Lmfao 13k likes for MPB 450k+ Likes for TAIM why is even MPB existing at all at this point? They have been a hand for like 15 years or some shit while TAIM has only been at it for 7 and they got like over 30 times as many likes as them hahaha

^^^so, must be huge bieber fan cause he has like a gajillion twitter followers. How about korn? heading to their next gig cause they have millions of twitter followers too. Solid logic for someone dumb enough to not know an important hxc band (that is no longer btw) compared to another generic 'if i scream they will buy' wanna be metal core act that's a dime a dozen

If you think Thy Art is Murder is original you are living under a rock...the same shit has been coming out for the past 5 years...they ripped the cover, get over it, it's the exact same image
anonymous   posted 9/9/2015 12:09:13 PM
Both bands are trash but MPB is in the right in this one. That is their album art and it was clearly ripped off. Judging by the reply they know they stole it as well. The designer could have done the same concept to fit the title but they should have had the balls to call out Islam because it's clearly the subject matter of the title. As for the original image it is one of my favorite covers but the music was nowhere near the caliber to be deserving of artwork that good.
anonymous   posted 9/9/2015 12:42:23 PM
'Nothing In Vain' is one of the best hardcore albums ever. That is all I have to say about that.
anonymous   posted 9/9/2015 12:53:23 PM
If you type in google 'Most controversial album art of all time'that MPB art is listed up there with some of the biggest name in rock history. To say that is not one of the MOST known album covers in hardcore is an understatement and the fews of us OG lamb goat viewers will remember it. TAIM are new jack deathcore kids from fcking Australia... of course they rip off everyone, name one original Australian act... because you wont be able to.

MPB is/was awesome. Great people too. Never listened to TAIM, but I'm fairly certain that it's not my thing. At any rate, it's incredibly obvious that this is a blatant ripoff.

i have never even heard of most precious blood. they sound like a bunch of whiny bitches. TAIM is right. there's looks better anyway. thy arts cover actually speaks of real world problems. children suicide bombers. most precious blood just looks like a chick suicide bomber, so my guess is they probably support Islam. which brings me back to the whiny little bitches. good day mates.
