Poland's Throneum have returned with a new recording which shows the music going into more of a ritualistic blackened death metal direction and this is a review of their 2020 album "Oh Death... Oh Death... Determinate Preach And Led Us Astray" which was released by Godz Of War Productions.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some evil sounding melodies also coming out of the guitar riffing. Half of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the vocals are mostly blackened screams as well as the music also mixing in a great amount of death metal elements.
All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them while the solos and leads also remain true to an old school style. When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can also be heard along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Clean playing can also be heard in some parts of the recording along with some of the tracks also being very ritualistic sounding instrumentals one of which also introduces horror orientated keyboards onto the album, operatic female vocals can also be heard briefly. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Qabala, Luciferian and Mythological themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Throneum and if you are a fan of ritualistic blackened death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Alpha: Soulside-Space-Stream" and "Zeta: Archangel-Lucifer-God". 8 out of 10.
