ILIAC THORNS To Release Debut Full-Length
May 3, 2013, 2 years ago
Finnish melodeath act ILIAC THORNS will release their debut full-length album, It, on May 20th in Finland and June 26th in the rest of the world via Inverse Records. The album contains eight songs of blackened melodeath which “attacks the core of listeners like a ton of black sludge.”
‘The Serpents Calling’
Even thou Iliac Thorns plays melodic metal of death, their music aren’t meant to sound like this faceless mainstream genre, what melodeath has unfortunately become over the years. In guitar riffs you can hear the sound of mid 90’s melodeath mixed to their distinctive "blackish" expression. Also the production, song writing and vocal performances has taken reflections of raw and extreme black metal, as this side is also important to some band members.
Iliac Thorns are:
Antti Tani – drums
Ilkka Lonnqvist – guitar and backgrowls
Jere Harju – bass
Samu Haatainen – guitar and vocals
