"Dust" is out March 31st, 2023 on vinyl, CD, cassette tape and digital via Listenable Records
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 90's. Although born in Germany, Thron could originate from a Nordic country though: heavily influenced by bands like Dissection, Dawn, Possessed and Mercyful Fate among others, adding traditional heavy metal flavour a la Judas Priest, the band create a blazing symbiosis of icy melodies, harshness and a haunting atmosphere.
Thron released their self titled debut album in 2017; followed by the critically acclaimed "Abysmal" and the stunning third album "Pilgrim", its roaring response vigorously spread the name across the globe thanks to their diabolical twin guitar black/death metal attacks. Metal Hammer UK enthusiastically reviewed "Enhanced Swedish 90's black/death revivalists hit the nail on the head with this one!"
The band delves even further in the musical territory they've been treading on and reinforce all foundations on "Dust", with more emphasis on slashing wicked blackened death metal melodies solidified by catchy heavy metal original vibes with great balance to spellbinding result.
The band comments further "With 'Dust', Thron incorporate new elements in their sound by going back to their very roots which lie in the early 80s when bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Mercyful Fate ruled the field, and at the same time taking inspiration from the 90's when bands like Tiamat, Edge of Sanity or Sentenced expanded their horizon. This combined with serious dedication to the glorious Progressive Rock dinosaurs of the 70's and the love for the dark extreme musical arts with blasting fury and agressive vocals, and you get 'Dust'; Everything is turning to dust someday..."
