Thron Posts Self-Titled Album Teaser

On January 20th, 2017, Clavis Secretorvm is proud to present Thron’s self-titled debut album on digipack CD format.

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.

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. Check out a teaser for the album below.

1. Purified in Fire
2. Satan’s Speech
3. The Blacklist
4. Orphaned by the Undertaker
5. Mutilation of the Unholy
6. Bloodfeast
7. The Evilution of Satan
8. Blackest Hell

Finsterforst Working On New EP For 2016

2015 has been a pretty intense year for the folks in Finsterforst: the release of latest album “Mach Dich Frei,” many club and festival shows, and an almost unbearable hot summer certainly kept the group busy and sweating.

With summer now ending, today the band unveils details on a new upcoming release. Finsterforst had this to say:

“We want to inform you that we do not intend to sit on our lazy asses and do nothing creative. After all, we have to work at least a bit for our big salary, don’t we? Therefore, we will enter the Iguana Studios around the end of the year and beginning of 2016 to record a next…..thing! It ain’t gonna be a usual full-length album, but an EP! I can’t deliver you the complete details now, because we are still in the writing process and think about what weird stuff we want to present to you guys.

“One thing is for sure: musically this next release will NOT be on the same tracks as ‘Mach dich frei’ is! Please, that is no reason to whine and fall into deep holes of depressions – you will still recognize our Black Forest Metal sound and style! We simply feel like trying something in addition that fits to our quite weird personalities before creating a next full-length album. Be sure, you will be delighted with a heavy and intense sounding party, which will include together with a couple of new own compositions also some cover songs!”

Finisterforst also still has these upcoming 2015 tour dates remaining:

19.09.2015 UK – Selby / Warhorns Festival
24.10.2015 AT – Schleifling / Rocktober Bikerbar
29.10.2015 RO – Cluj-Napoca / Flying Circus Club
30.10.2015 RO – Bukarest / Quantic Club
31.10.2015 RO – Iasi / Rock ‘n’ Iasi
07.11.2015 NL – Eindhoven / Into The Forest
05.12.2015 BE – Louvain-la-Neuve / Mass Deathtruction
