Like the riotous music they play, since their inception in 2011, Aussie thrash trio 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, which has currently taken them on their “Kangaroo Thrash USA Tour” supporting Lich King plus a last-minute slot on Full Terror Assault this past September performing right before Havok and Toxic Holocaust (dates listed below).
Over the years, HIDDEN INTENT have hit the mosh pit hard releasing their 2013 debut full-length album “Walking Through Hell”, which was re-released in 2014 via Italian label Punishment 18 Records plus unleashed two other singles the same year “Apocalypse Now” and “Addicted To Thrash”, which was mastered by American record producer, mixer, guitarist and songwriter, Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Municipal Waste, Queensrÿche, Revocation).

HIDDEN INTENT have previously supported Danish thrash metal icons Artillery for their ‘Made in China’ 11-date tour in April/May 2015 plus have been national tour support for Nuclear Assault, local Adelaide support for Helloween and Queensryche along with performing at numerous 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 among many more.
Following their “Kangaroo Thrash USA Tour”, HIDDEN INTENT will return to the studio to record their much anticipated second full-length album slated for a 2018 release.
