Thrall – Australian Black-Metal Collective Share Entire New Album “Schisms”
Melbourne-based black-metal collective Thrall are now sharing their entire fourth full-length album “Schisms”, ahead of the release date set for this Saturday, May 28th on vinyl via Impure Sounds and on cassette via Brilliant Emperor.

The full album is now playing at No Clean Singing, who stated “Schisms is mind-bending as well as mauling, elaborate as well as feral, both strangely seductive and so frightening that it puts chills up and down the spine.” 

Listen to “Schisms” here.

Thrall mastermind Tøm Vøid had this to say about the album: “Schisms is our fourth album. It is our most ambitious, varied, and accomplished work to date. It consolidates the themes and forms of our entire oeuvre and distills them. The ever-present melding of disparate genres continues in more cohesive and varied combinations. Black metal forged in the furnace of fear forms a chimera with doom, post rock and other genres.”

Having been away from the recording studios for nearly seven years, Melbourne-based black-metal collective Thrall appeared to be relegated to the fate of “cult act”, especially considering they vanished after releasing their most accomplished and critically lauded album “Aokigahara Jukai”.

Back with an enlivened recorded line-up that features members of Gatecreeper, Noose Rot, ex-Extinct Exist, Förfalla, Slothferatu, ex-Ruins, Mar Mortuum and Myotragus, the group picks up where they left off, merging some primeval and heinous black metal, with a ferocious thrash metal attack, a raucous crust and miserable doom atmosphere.

Ripping, engaging, and despairing, new album “Schisms” shows a vast number of guests joining Thrall in studio and hopefully will cement Thrall position as one of most interesting and creative bands from the current Australian extreme metal scene. Pre-orders for the cassette edition are now available at this location and for the vinyl release are available here.
