New THRONEUM album in June, first tracks revealed
Hells Headbangers sets June 29th as the international release date for Polish Blackened Death Metal legion THRONEUM's highly anticipated ninth album, "The Tight Deathrope Act Over Rubicon", on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.
Listen to the first new tracks of "The Tight Deathrope Act Over Rubicon" below.
THRONEUM proved that with their first album for Hells Headbangers (and seventh overall), 2016's Morbid Death Tales. A mighty and more-than-worthy introduction to the band's signature style of rabid, righteous filth, Morbid Death Taleswas the perfect culmination of everything that's brewed in Throneum's cauldron to date. However, with the brand-new Hells Headbangers album The Tight Deathrope Act Over Rubicon, there's far more nightmarish ingredients brewing in that cauldron. They may've downplayed their originality in the past - in fact, they boldly proclaimed the credo of "no originality, no own style, no musical progress" - but as suggested even by its tongue-twisting title, The Tight Deathrope Act Over Rubicon portrays a newer and nastier THRONEUM.
Between bouts of frothing-mad hysteria and knife-cutting tension, dungeon-deep rumbling and mentally unstable thrashing, The Tight Deathrope Act Over Rubiconcovers a relatively vast landscape of wrecked 'n' wrecking decibels during its hour-long duration. Whereas so much death metal past and especially present sounds so safe and normal, THRONEUM here sound absolutely unhinged and frankly fucking dangerous. There aren't so much "riffs" on the album as there are howling spirits being malformed in an unknown dimension. Songwriting restlessly shifts and mutates, but seemingly is on a narrow-yet-serpentine path down where no light reaches. Production is suitably rough yet reverberating, diseased tones that emit both muscle and mildew. Everything sounds so OLD, yet its presentation is remarkably fresh. In the band's own words, it's "necro psychodelic," and undoubtedly THRONEUM's most mature recording ever.
