On January 20th, 2017, Clavis Secretorum is proud to present Thron's self-titled debut album on digipack CD. 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, when metal wasn't watered down yet. And with Thron, the quintet have accomplished exactly that: an iron-fisted attack of ancient energy, both pure and classicist in intent yet never kowtowing to "retro" cliché.
Whether you qualify Thron's attack as blackened death metal or deathened black metal, it matters not, for the results speak for themselves - and loudly. In many ways, you could slot Thron alongside the early works of Dissection, Unanimated, Edge of Sanity, Sacramentum, Necrophobic, and Unpure among others: not so much in that the quintet mimic those bands' styles exactly, but more in that Thron find that elusive, cold-yet-hot symbiosis between songwriting and atmosphere, from the days when heavy metal's blackest fires were first being forged (and those fires soon consumed churches). Muscular without losing any witchy evil, uniquely produced to heighten this duality, and featuring rabid performances by each player, Thron proves that the past is alive!
