To celebrate, the band is also proud to reveal the first single and lyric video for ‘Banishing the Lion of Kutha’. Watch it now on YouTube: https://youtu.be/dACu0FMjc7Y
Mastermind Lord Kaiaphas states: “Thy Throne is Mine is simply the best Black Metal that I’m capable of creating thus far. As a whole, it’s an album with songs that are catchy and memorable. I didn’t want to make an album with every song sounding the same. For the lyrics of Banishing the Lion of Kutha I created a story based on Sumerian and Akkadian mythology. This song has a warlike feeling.”
Musically, Thokkian Vortex is Nordic style black metal as it was played in the 90’s by bands such as MAYHEM, EMPEROR, DARK FUNERAL, LIMBONIC ART, SATYRICON, etc.
Fronted by Lord Kaiaphas, the former vocalist of Norwegian black metal act, ANCIENT, the band features also guitarist Sabnock, bassist Sil, and drummer Asmodevs Draco Dvx (AZRATH 11, NAER MATARON, KURGAALL, ANCIENT, MELECHESH, etc.) in the ranks.
