SOLDIERS OF A BLACKENED WAR
Colorado sextet Throcult are astute students of the metal genre, as the latest seven-track release finds the band exploring black, death, and hardcore styles, creating a vicious form of music in the process. Crushingly heavy tracks like "Dark Cloud Holocaust" strike like a swift sword into your blackened heart, while the thunderous din of "Kill or Be Killed" is a foreboding homage to both At The Gates and Cradle of Filth. Implementing all of these sounds into the cauldron of metal, it's obvious that Throcult aren't merely metal fans and that they have done their homework. In turn, SOLDIERS OF A BLACKENED WAR stands out as a metal offering that really deserves the moniker of extreme.
