After premiering the title track from Gates Of Winter (out January 13) on MetalSucks a few weeks ago, the Indiana-based blackened doom crew known as THORR-AXE have caught the attention of American Aftermath, who call the record “already one of the best albums of 2015.” And now, the web portal is hosting a stream of their latest track Descent as well as an in-depth interview with vocalist/guitarist Tucker Thommason.
Succumb to Descent and read an interview with THORR-AXE over on American Aftermath.
And in case you missed it, you can also hear the title track Gates Of Winter over on MetalSucks.
THORR-AXE hails from Bloomfield, Indiana, where they have been busy preparing for the release of their sophomore album with heavy riffs, hikes through the frozen woods, playing shows including a recent opening slot for Weedeater, and getting named best unsigned band in Indiana by metal blog Toilet Ov Hell. The “cold, frosty doom” act is a raiding party comprised of four guys with a mutual love of heavy music who belch forth tales of dragons, wizards, frost giants, and vikings putting axes through people’s skulls. A party of the blackest kind, which Pete in his review of 2011’s Wall Of Spears, referred to them as “a crushing rifforama that boldly sets all axes to bludgeon-mode,” and every metal head with a black heart and a wry smile is invited.
CD pre-orders of Gates Of Winter are available now on the bands webstore.
