HISTORY OF HATRED MADE HUMAN
Formed in Wellington New Zealand in 2004 by guitarist Johnny Hellkatze, SEKHT are award winning pioneers in their own subgenre of Metal- Hellcore. The “Hellcore” subgenre was spawned to take all the best things from all subgenres of metal and roll them into one powerfu groove laden, seething ball of brutality and hate, fuelled by the unrelenting dedication of four talented musicians. "From the heart/core at the end of the day we play whatever the Hell we like Metal Wise" This quote was the one that coined the term “Hellcore” and thus sent SEKHT on the path to revolutionize and revitalize modern extreme music. From 2007 onwards SEKHT continued down this path in Christchurch New Zealand, influenced by early American Thrash Metal, European Black and Death Metal, Speed Metal, Power Metal and Hardcore just to name a few subgenres that they take the best from.
Not only are SEHKT insane in the studio, they are a force to be reckoned with when playing live. Because of this incredible energy and talent on stage, they have performed alongside some of the finest Metal that Australia and New Zealand has to offer such as LORD. State of Integrity Slave Cadaver, Bullet Belt, Bow Messiah, Plague Of The Fallen, NORT, Dissolution and many others.
After the earthquakes that ravaged Christchurch in 2011, SEKHT packed up and moved to Wellington for two years where they were the first winners of the Metal Category in the NZ Music Awards in 2012 until finally coming over to Melbourne Australia in 2013. Now with a new lineup half kiwi & half aussie an anzac they are woking on their second album and are planning on unleashing it’s fury upon the crowds in ASAP
