THRONE OF THORNS rises as a blazing new force in the (prog)power metal scene, featuring experienced Belgian musicians. With a fusion of power and precision, the band masterfully creates harmonious melodies and dynamic vocals, all atop a relentless foundation of catchy guitar riffs, resulting in an auditory journey. In terms of content, their upcoming full-length debut album deals with the pressing issues of global injustice, delving into the seductive grip of capitalism and self-indulgence that threatens to unleash humanities (and the World’s) demise.
Guitar player Thomas Jethro Verleye (ex-GUILTY AS CHARGED, studio guitarist REJECT THE SICKNESS) is the band’s driving force and composer. The lead vocals are performed by Josey Hindrix, known from the legendary Belgian metal pioneers OSTROGOTH. The line-up is completed by musicians with diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz-fusion to death metal: Guy Vercruysse (backing vocals and production/mixing | REJECT THE SICKNESS), Wim Rotthier (keys | ex-MORDACITY, ex-CRUSADER, BROKEN VOICE, VAAG) and Baruch Van Bellegem (drums | SATYRUS, EXOGENESIST). The mastering of the album was done by the internationally renowned Danish producer Jacob Hansen.
