Gwarth I

by Thoren

supported by
Ippocalyptica thumbnail
Ippocalyptica This is technical and chaotic death metal in the vein of Gorguts and Pyrrhon, with a dash of Imperial Triumphant, but still with its own voice - pun intended, as this is largely instrumental music with vocals to be found on only one song. You would expect this much dissonance to hurt your brain, but the skill with which these arrangements are put together makes for a very compelling listening experience. This twists, this turns, and through it all, it simply works. Favorite track: Tyranny.

Dmitry Nevozhay Amazing atonal avantgarde death metal not far from Gorguts. Highly recommended. Contender for AOTY.

Gwarth I is the culmination of years of hard work writing, practicing, and searching for a sound that combines all of our influences into a cohesive package. We feel that we have achieved our initial vision to make an album that uniquely expresses us and the inclusion of the extraordinarily talented Alex Cohen and Kenny Grohowski as session drummers took the Thoren sound further than ever.
