Thokkian Vortex is a Black Metal band fronted by Lord Kaiaphas, the former vocalist for the Norwegian black metal band, Ancient (95-98). The band features guitarist Zed Destructive, bassist Sil, & drummer Uriel.
This Friday the 13th we are proud to present Thokkian Vortex official video, Huginn and Muninn in the Realms of Mist. This is an epic track from the Thokkian Vortex album Into the Nagual. Filmed, directed and edited by Mark Inberg, the video is a masterpiece of Black Metal art expertly shot in classic black and white. It weaves a tale of a shaman’s journey inspired by Nordic mythology.
Thokkian Vortex follows the traditional aesthetics of Black Metal, incorporating corpse paint, spikes, bullet belts, leather, blood, & ritualistic props in their live shows. Lord Kaiaphas delivers a dramatic and expressive performance, captivating the audience as he did with Ancient in the 90s.
The debut album from Thokkian Vortex, “Into The Nagual” was released at the end of January 2016 by Unexploded records (Sweden). A highly listenable album comprising many different styles, timbres, a variety of rhythms from blast beats to D-beats, shredding guitar solos, Kaiaphas’s signature vocal stylings, atmospheric synthesizers, orchestral sections, and a solid production. The album also features guest musicians such as Lord Ahriman (Dark Funeral) and Scorpios (ex-Melechesh) among others.
