BLACK CYCLONE Join Gates Of Hell Records

BLACK CYCLONE album2018

Gothenburg, Sweden thrashers BLACK CYCLONE have inked a deal with Gates Of Hell Records for the physical release of their first full-length album, 'Death Is King'. The album was released by the band in digital format in early 2018.

 

Originally formed in 2009, BLACK CYCLONE’s sound initially channeled black metal on their 'Chaos Brigade' (2012) and 'Under Your Hoof' (2013) demos, eventually morphing into all-out, vintage thrash, which is displayed across 'Death Is King', an album stocked with surges of speed, NWOBHM-styled guitar solos, twisting power metal and the animated, sky-scraping vocals of Linus Johansson, who also handles vocal duties in TRIAL.

 

'After we settled on thrash metal, it all felt right and we were ready to record BLACK CYCLONE’s first album,' comments bass guitarist Per Andreasson. 'The changes in style were just a result of what we wanted to play in different periods of time.'

 

The songs on 'Death Is King' are the result of many years of work, songs that were accordingly, re-written to suit BLACK CYCLONE’s ever-evolving sound. 'Now that we have found our style, it’s time to begin this journey,' says Andreasson. 'We just thought that ‘Death Is King’ had a nice ring to it and it’s easy to remember. The name comes from the opening track of the album, ‘Death Is Crowned As King’, which we thought would be a too long name for the album title. The lyrical themes differ from song to song, everything from Cthulhu and anti-religion to anarchy and anti-establishment.'
