Ascending from Perth Western Australia,THE FUROR began their advance in September of 2002. The sound of the three man battalion consisting of DISASTER - drums/lead vocals, KILL MACHINE - guitar, KINGSLAYER - bass, is best described as a hyperactively vicious, bombastic fusion of extreme metal styles - high calibre chaos on chaos forged from years of Death/Black/Thrash worship and indulgence. After a year of relentless black practice and the decision to bypass the EP/Demo stage, the first self-financed full length offering 'INVERT ABSOLUTE' (2004) was unleashed. Recorded by Sovereign Studios' Aidan Barton (The Bezerker, Pathogen, Voyager, Vespers Descent) and released independently, the debut album received excellent reviews throughout Australia and abroad, spread waves of rampant curiosity throughout the underworld and earned THE FUROR accolades for 'Best Band of 2004' and 'Best Release of 2004' on Western Australia's premiere metal website 'The Western Front'.
Shortly after the release a constant stream of attacks on the Perth live front ensued, seeing THE FUROR share the stage with many interstate and international acts such as DESTROYER 666, CRYPTOPSY, PSYCROPTIC, THE AMENTA, HATE ETERNAL, ALCHEMIST, ALARUM, FUCK I'M DEAD, WALK THE EARTH, STRONGER THAN HATE, DAYSEND, proving they could hit their target in the live arena time after time. Dozens of shows and a further year of writing led to the massive full length self-financed follow up to INVERT ABSOLUTE entitled 'ADVANCE AUSTRALIA WARFARE' (2005). Gloriously elaborating on the violence and complexity of it's predecessor and including a ravaging film clip to the track 'Thrive on War', the album was produced by Dan Majer (Maximum Perversion) and THE FUROR, released through Perth's own Prime Cuts Music and distributed nationally through MGM. It received many favourable reviews through various worldwide webzines, earned the band many interviews and radio spots in Australia, and also ranked second on Full Metal Racket's (Australia's most prominent metal radio show) 'Most Popular Australian Metal Release of 2005' poll.
Two full Australian tours in support of USA's NILE (Annihilation of the Wicked tour) and Poland's BEHEMOTH (Demigod tour) soon followed, plus many additional high profile performances throughout Australia's East coast, including Sydney's Metalstock and Brute Force festivals; further solidifying THE FUROR's reputation for delivering world class damnating extreme metal. Early 2006 saw guitarist WARLOCK depart the band in pursuit of other interests, KILL MACHINE took over on guitar and KINGSLAYER (SECRATAIN, PESTILENTIAL SHADOWS) was recruited to dominate bass duties. With this (current) lineup the band is more powerful than ever. Soon after, the band ventured to the nation's capital city (Canberra) to perform a peak slot at Australia's largest and longest running metalfest 'Metal for the Brain', followed shortly by a show back in their home town alongside USA death metal legends DEICIDE and New Zealand's premier death metal act DAWN OF AZAZEL. In April of 2007, the band again stormed Australia's east, playing 7 dates alongside Dubai's most notable metal export NERVECELL. The tour consisted of a show in every major city plus a headline performance to an ever swelling fanbase at Sydney's third Metalstock festival

A few months later in August THE FUROR completed a 6 date national tour in support of Sweden's iconic black metal overlords MARDUK on their first Australian tour for the album ROM 5:12 . The band showcased songs from their latest release 'Assault by Fire' (EP), punishing crowds with their new assaultive direction and sound. The final nail will be unmercifully hammered in with the release of the forthcoming new album. Assume Holocaust Positions.
