STREAM: Blackened, Melodic Death Metal from THRON

Nov. 5, 2018

"Formed in 2015 as a project of experienced, devoted musicians from German bands in the Black Forest region, THRON's initial goals were to play authentic black/death in the spirit of the early to mid '90s. Although born in Germany, THRON could originate from a Nordic country though: heavily influenced by bands like DISSECTION, UNANIMATED, SACRAMENTUM and MERCYFUL FATE among others, the band creates a blazing symbiosis of icy melodies, harshness and a haunting atmosphere."

If you're a fan of riff-heavy melodic death and black metal bands like At The GatesIn Twilights Embrace, and Dissection, you definitely need to check this out. My one problem is that the songs are much longer than they need to be. Trim them down to the 3-4 minute range and my score goes up exponentially. Even so I am loving the guitars and truly vicious vocals. Dude sounds like Dez from Devildriver decided to go black metal. And can we talk about the visual pun in the album art? Sick f#$ks.
