Throne Below are a 1 man band originally from South Africa but now located in Thailand with a musical style I would describe as being a misanthropic form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Defy Deceit Destroy".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being used at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that combine raw and primitive elements with melody to create a sound of their own as well as a brief use of clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding black metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams with some deep demonic growls being used at times as well as a brief use of spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover misanthropy, occultism and anti religion, as for t he production it has a very heavy, raw and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Throne Below are a very great sounding misanthropic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Defy Deceit Destroy" "Profane Ceremony" and "Heretic By Nature". RECOMMENDED BUY.
