THRONE OF KATARSIS
VED GRAVEN
CANDLELIGHT

The unsettling sounds from the catacombs of underground metal come to life thanks to Throne of Katarsis and their seven-track album VED GRAVEN. Capturing caustic shifts of black metal malaise (“Helvete Kaller”) into crushing doom metal with vintage raw production value, songs like “The Ultimate Shrine” exhibit the band’s versatile volatility via the constant barrage of stylistic shakeups while the ominous (and omnipresent) organ that starts “Apne Alle Sar” slowly morphs from funeral dirge into a dramatic drone piece made for the cosmos. Unorthodox and adventurous, Throne of Katarsis explores divergent sets of dynamics and injects intriguing elements in their music, creating a misanthropic cauldron of drama and despair for those who embrace the darker side. –Mike SOS
