THORNIUM / Press

"Mushroom clouds and dusk" have been terrorizing my neighbors over and over for a while now. This is such a blast from the past and I’m loving it. Let’s just hope it doesn’t take as long for a new album to find its way to the audience.

"They did not invent heavy metal but have rather defined it." - What holds true for Black Sabbath and heavy metal is equally true for Thornium and black metal. Most black metal bands have their own distinctive sounds, when I try do describe their style I would start with "you could call it black metal, but...". Not so with Thornium, here, the label perfectly fits and this is a good thing (To give a rough approximate, one could maybe mention "Sardonic Wrath"-era Darkthrone and "De Mysteriis..."-era Mayhem.)
