“...Like so many other black and doom metal bands in the United States, this is another one that goes under the radar but shouldn’t. This is enjoyable for anyone who like doom metal or black metal. Do not miss this band, you will thank yourself for it.”
"Ceremonial Blood" marks a robust progression in the evolution of Throne of Malediction and though it does still retain the willingness to infuse facets from multiple genres into the blend it does so in a fairly focused fashion without undermining the BM establishment. A strong solid foundation for the band to now continue to build upon."
“...“Malediction” derives from the Latin maledicere, and means, simply, “a curse.” Throne of Malediction, Montana’s newest Black Metal juggernaut, proves, with the release of Ceremonial Blood (Ziekte Records/Misantrof) that they are anything but. Combining the raw, bullet-blasting sincerity of Black Metal with a toned-down solemnity uniquely their own, Throne of Malediction paint a stunning soundscape that at once pulverizes and soothes the listener’s senses... ...Throne of Malediction will certainly mature into the sort of balanced Black Metal act that will draw innumerable crowds to headlining shows and festivals. Ceremonial Blood is a showcase of their burgeoning talent, a first offering, and when their communion comes ‘round to the theatre, we shall drink deeply . . . for blood is the life. (Ceremonial Blood will be available in November, 2010 C.E.)”
“All in All Throne Of Malediction would strike me as a Gothic take on early death metal like Sarcafago. These guys(and gal)are from the lowest pits of hell and they want to grip you by the Raw nerves of your teeth and show you that the age of basement, demo tape style, blackened grind, is not going without a fight. ”
“It doesn’t get much more underground than the frequently frozen hinterlands of Montana, and not many would expect a metal band of any quality to hail from such an inauspicious location. If places like Norway have taught the world anything, however, it’s that the frigid backwoods can produce some very surprising musical talents. Throne of Malediction is one such group of up-and-comers who have been forced to make their own unique sound because, frankly, there just aren’t enough other bands in their scene for them to copy anyone else"......"There are echoes of death metal, thrash, and even hardcore, but none of those labels fully apply to the music as a whole.”
