The inspiration for German MountainThrone reaches a fair bit back in time. Black
Sabbath, Saint Vitus and Trouble are all clearly detected in the five songs that
make up the EP. This is traditional heavy metal the way it was played in the

generations could easily use this as an introduction to the genre.
