Blades Of Hades or simply Blades (since 2006), are an Australian hip hop group from Newcastle. Since forming in the late 1990's they have released three albums, Blades Of Hades, This Installment, and Shadow Art in 2008. The group took its name from Greek mythology, where Hades was the Gatekeeper of the Underworld.[2] Known for their hardcore style lyrics and dark beats, Blades have developed a strong following overseas, having performed at many festivals in Europe, including Germany's Mass Hysteria in Hamburg. In 2008, they were the first Australian hip hop act to perform at the Glastonbury Festival in the United Kingdom. Newcastle brothers Kid Lyrical and Wizardry met Likewyze onstage, when the duo began rhyming over a performance of a funk band Likewyze was playing guitar in.

At the time Likewyze was studying audio at music school and offered to record the duo, along with Dj Skoob, the three time NSW DMC champion. This resulted in their debut album, the self titled, independently released Blades Of Hades. Other contributing musicians were the female Mc Dust and singer Jane Tyrrell under the name U-Jive. During the early years of Blades Of Hades, actress and musician Abbie Cornish was dating Kid Lyrical, and subsequently performed with the group on occasion. By 2005, Jane Tyrrell had joined the Sydney hip hop group The Herd full time.

The group counter-acted the line-up change and shortened their name to just 'Blades' in 2006. The same year, they released their second album This Installment, which was distributed by Obese Records. The album featured Newcastle DJ Mark N on cuts and production for the track 'Blast Opposition', which they also released a video clip for. Blades appeared on Oriel Guthre's documentary Skip Hop: Volume One in 2006.

They were interviewed and also contributed to the project's soundtrack. Shadow Art was released in 2008, followed by their free to download mix tape Two Thousand And Nine the following year.
