Signing a band from Germany is in itself a thing that hardly ever happens where Northern Silence is concerned. That the debut album of Thorngoth is being released through NSP is due to the fact that the band plays a fucking great kind of traditional Black Metal, with distinctive Swedish influences and a songwriting that, though quite varied, mostly relies on it's two main strengths, being melodic, pounding mid-paced parts on the one hand and fast, thundering devastative ones on the other. Those who know the band's demo will find the new material a rather big improvement to the already good demo songs, which grows on you even more with every turn. Two bands that come to my mind when listening to Thorngoth are Endstille and Thy Grief. That doesn't mean the album sounds exactly like a mix of those two but fans of the aforementioned bands might want to check it out. I believe you won't regret it!
