Black metal upstarts Thron hail from Germany, but you’d be forgiven for guessing they are of Swedish origin. Thron’s sound is heavily inspired by that of the Swedish melodic black metal scene, pairing chilling melodies with black metal’s cold bite. There is little the Germans have revealed about themselves other than the knowledge that new album Abysmal is their second, following their self-titled debut album released early in 2017.
Like their peers in Uada, there were no demos, formative EPs or anything to suggest that there was development before releasing a complete album into the world. While you’ll have to keep on wondering about the identities of Thron, you can stream new song “Beyond the Gates” now.
You can pre-order Abysmal through Listenable Records.
