In terms of overall feeling, Travesty of Heavenly Essence harks back to the blackened essence of earlier Thyrane albums. While eschewing some of the industrial/electro vibes present on their last album Hypnotic in favour of full-on black metal onslaught, Thyrane still remain musically innovative with technical proficiency second to none. Following the departure of Avather in early 2005, a former session member Kristonic (drums) now completes the line-up of Blastmor (vocals), Daemon (bass) and HM (keyboards). The superb engineering and mixing by the trustworthy Ahti Kortelainen (Impaled Nazarene, Sentenced, Sonata Arctica…) at the legendary Tico-Tico Studio does full service to the awe-inspiring Thyrane sound. Twisting and turning, almost thrash metal-like in intensity, Travesty of Heavenly Essence overwhelms the listener from the word ‘go’ and the clever keyboard arrangements bring out the nuances. It is an almost-perfect marriage of melody and aggression if there ever was one: there is not a single lapse into the territory of sickly sweet melodies, neither into meaningless brutality. Everything is just as it should be. Thyrane’s latest is like a red-hot branding iron: hurts instantly and leaves a long lasting mark… If you prefer your black metal with the damaging power of nuclear detonation combined with the precision of a surgical knife, there’s no way in Helvete you can go wrong with Thyrane. A landmark record from Finland’s finest. Thyrane are also a great live band and should be setting cities afire all over Europe soon.
