MOUNTAIN THRONE enter the studio
Germany’s MOUNTAIN THRONE has entered the studio to record their debut full-length album, set to be released later 2013.
The band comments: “Mountain Throne is busy recording their first full album “Stormcoven”. Eight lively tunes of true & ancient Heavy Metal in roughly 40 minutes (vinyl-optimized album-structure for perfect symmetry) will be hammered on tape in the coming weeks; with tales about life, death, women, men, man & beast. One or two musical surprises included, but no worries - no hype, no hipster-shit, no vegan crap or “occult” 70ies Doom Rock: just unadulterated crushing Heavy Metal! The “Stormcoven”-LP further marks the arrival of new bassplayer S., a veteran Heavy Metal machine: welcome aboard! Trust in fate and have no fear!”
