After being quiet for nearly 15 years Excommunion roar back to life and deliver one of most unyielding and vile chunks of death metal since their debut in 2002. 'Thronosis' destroys everything.
Favorite track: Nemesis.
As the world crumbles beneath our feet, a slumbering beast awakens to feast on the weak. That beast is Excommunion. The band will break a years-long silence with the upcoming release of Thronosis.
Fifteen years after their sonic blitzkrieg that was their debut album "Superion," Colorado born Excommunion triumphantly return with Thronosis. Christbutcher and Kyle Spanswick once again form the backbone for this relentless return.
The band comments:
"In death we are born again, to rise once more with new form, beneath the Shadow of the Logos. Old doctrines are cast into the abyss and old flesh flensed and given to the flames of pyres. Let only the old name remain as our epithet. Let all else burn and fall from this new and glorious form within the paradoxical light of a greater heresy. In death, Excommunion arises once more..."
released May 12, 2017
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered at Flatline Audio by Dave Otero and Excommunion.
Serious skill for a one man band, major props are due for creating something this atmospheric and menacing. Cavernous death metal with vibes reminding one of Ulcerate. Would be in the upper echelon of albums released in 2018. Absolutely recommended Heterodontosauridae
