Norwegian black metallers THOKKIAN VORTEX have recently announced the release of their new opus “Thy Throne is Mine” on February 28th via Non Serviam Records.
Pre-orders of the album are available here.
Recently the band revealed the first single and lyric video for ‘Banishing the Lion of Kutha’. Watch it now on YouTube:
Mastermind Lord Kaiaphas states:
“‘Thy Throne is Mine’ is simply the best Black Metal that I’m capable of creating thus far. As a whole, it’s an album with songs that are catchy and memorable. I didn’t want to make an album with every song sounding the same. For the lyrics of Banishing the Lion of Kutha I created a story based on Sumerian and Akkadian mythology. This song has a warlike feeling.”
Musically, THOKKIAN VORTEX is Nordic style black metal as it was played in the 90’s by bands such as MAYHEM, EMPEROR, DARK FUNERAL, LIMBONIC ART, SATYRICON, etc.
Besides Lord Kaiaphas, the band features also guitarist Sabnock, bassist Sil, and drummer Asmodevs Draco Dvx (AZRATH 11, NAER MATARON, KURGAALL, ANCIENT, MELECHESH, etc.) in the ranks.
