Richmond, VA's abrasive Sludge 'n' Roll duo continues their aural assault supporting the full length release, "Synanthrope" and the power-packed Pandemic cover song album, "Dekk Meg..."
Once described as "...an incessant nightmare, like Sleep on ketamine", THUNDERCHIEF has been on the move since 2006, and continues to tour and perform regularly.
Beginning as a 1-man project, THUNDERCHIEF has shapeshifted into one of the hairiest songwriting teams in the game, Rik Surly & Erik Larson. Time and time again, the band has proven to be less concerned with maintaining "genre-specific" status, and more into unleashing the beast from within.
Riff-laden, ear-catching, drum-forward punishment is the goal. That's it. No compromise, no let up.

Richmond, VA’s 2–piece nihilistic Sludge ‘n’ Roll outfit THUNDERCHIEF are heading out due south to support their new CD release, “Dekk Meg…” (ASR Records), slated for Friday, January 6, 2023.

This collection of deep cuts by Sheer Terror, Joe Walsh, Neanderthal, among others, showcases the band making full use of the pandemic downtime.

Tour begins January 9 in Asheville, NC and continues on with heavy support from CrankBait, Hot Ram, Christworm, and a rare appearance from Southern heavyweight titans, Hexxus.
