July 2015
Released: 2015, Art of Propaganda
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: UK Team

Begotten in Germany in the year of 1997, initially practising a more death metal related sonority, Thornesbreed, a quintet formed by Sermon on vocals, Faust on rhythm & lead guitars, Morvan - rhythm guitars, Ngaur – bass and Contamination on drums, are now releasing “GTRD”, that follows their debut entitled “The Splendour of the Repellent” of 2003, which gave them some acknowledgement through European territories and also the opportunity to expand their havoc abroad.

Focus on this recently forged piece, there is a sound metamorphosis that is conspicuous when penetrating the gates that will lead us to those eight stages of mind-blowing black metal obscurity and deviant dismal dimensions.

There is also a contrast between aphotic instrumental landscapes such as the opening track “Death, lucid Death” and “Marrow’s Void”, “Towards the liquid paltry Grounds”, intermingled with the ferocity of “Not a second from Oceans to froze”, “Abendwerk” and” Perpetual Stigmata”, thus then comes forth the exquisite yet monstrous “Horns ov Gaia”, and “Dividua Anima Pt. I” that balance the ghastly harmonies among the chaos liberated and the flesh swallowed into the soulless vortex that origins from “GTRD”.

In terms of appreciation this is clearly an opus for black metal followers but yet a invitation to the ones who listen extreme music and enjoy to remain endless seasons wandering in darkness.
