Blackened Indiana doom riffers THORR-AXE are set to embark on a western U.S. tour alongside, ravaging eight cities April 16-26 before ultimately concluding at Chicago Doomed & Stoned Festival this June.
Listen to THORR-AXE’s mighty Middle-earth themed “The Hobbit Split” with Archarus, available now via Bandcamp.
“This is our longest run to date,” says longtime guitarist and vocalist Tucker Thomasson. “We’re playing with a few awesome bands we’ve worked with before (Green Druid, Wizzerd, Green Altar) and we’re also looking forward to meeting and playing with some new bands as well. We hope to see a lot of people who’ve been following us for awhile out at some of these dates. See you out there!”

With reddened blades, broken shields, shattered limbs and headless foes, THORR-AXE was formed to give praise to conflict and conquest; to revel in victory and remember the fallen. Contrived in 2007, THORR-AXE has been an immutable force of nature in heavy music, blending sludge, black metal, and traditional heavy metal to forge something that the Norse gods would endorse. The Bloomington, Indiana-based quartet released its 2011 debut album, Wall Of Spears, engineered by “Iron” Bob Fouts (Nachtmystium, Chrome Waves, ex-The Gates of Slumber et al). Four years later, THORR-AXE released its sophomore folow-up Gates of Winter, a heroic concept album in the vein of the Icelandic Sagas in its scope. In 2017, the band joined forces with Archarus to release “The Hobbit Split,” a telling of J.R.R. Tolkien’s timeless masterpiece in each of the band’s doom-laden approaches. Bear witness as THORR-AXE leaves nothing in its wake.
