By now, THRONEUM should need no introduction. For over 20 years now, this Polish death metal cult has been a staunch and steadfast pillar of none-more-true, dyed-in-the-wool DEATH METAL, played by death metal maniacs for death metal maniacs. Their catalog is vast if not varied; they still continue to engage in split releases, as has been the underground way for decades. At every turn, THRONEUM are raw, ugly, and morbidly hideous in their expression – always dependable, never faltering – and forever committed to their gods of 80’s and early 90’s Metal of Death. As they’ve proclaimed in the past, “If you aren’t into Necrovore, Sadistik Exekution, Mortem, Order From Chaos, Imperator, Asphyx, Mayhem, and Merciless – keep away from THRONEUM! That’s pure Total Death!”

Indeed, THRONEUM proved that with their first album for HELLS HEADBANGERS (and seventh overall), 2016’s Morbid Death Tales. A mighty and more-than-worthy introduction to the band’s signature style of rabid, righteous filth, Morbid Death Tales was the perfect culmination of everything that’s brewed in THRONEUM’s cauldron to date. However, with the brand-new HELLS HEADBANGERS album The Tight Deathrope Act Over Rubicon, there’s far more nightmarish ingredients brewing in that cauldron. They may’ve downplayed their originality in the past – in fact, they boldly proclaimed the credo of “no originality, no own style, no musical progress” – but as suggested even by its tongue-twisting title, The Tight Deathrope Act Over Rubicon portrays a newer and nastier THRONEUM.
