After a long break, Danish death metallers Thorium are back with the potent ’Feral Creation’.
There is Sweden stamped all over this release – the old-school way. Echoes of hell-rockers like Entombed, Grave and Dismember are ever present, and it’s not bad at all.
True to style, the eleven tracks are executed brutally and efficiently. Mind you, no boundaries are moved, but the overall quality of the album is high, both in terms of performance and sound (produced by Berno Paulsson at Berno Studio, Sweden/mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen), so who needs artsy-fartsy experimentation!? I, for one, don’t.
Fave tracks? Probably Epidemic Skeleton, Cast from Hell, Gates of Utumno and Unbound. All rocking death metal blasts.
Check it out!
P.S.: Cool to see Dan Seagraves artwork again!
