THAW premiere new track 'The Brigand'

THAW album2017

Polish experimental black metallers THAW premiere the first single from their recently announced fourth studio album, 'Grains', set to be released on December 8th via Agonia Records. 'The Brigand' is the openeing song of the album, which arrives three years after its acclaimed predecessor, 'Earth Ground'. Listen to the track below:

 

 

In the past years the world of extreme music witnessed a monumental turn in black metal philosophy. A new, experimental approach stormed the genre and while many purists shook their heads in disapproval, a new age was already starting. As with every revolution, there were leaders and followers. While not being there for the initial spark, you can hardly call THAW the latter. This Polish black/experimental powerhouse was founded in 2010 by members of such acclaimed acts as Mentor, ARRM and Furia. Their music boldly fuses black metal with sludge, doom and sonic experiments, along with with noise, electronics and free-impro.

 

Recorded during sessions scattered over various periods of time, 'Grains' are not just another step forward for the already acclaimed band. The album divided into five pieces evolves in multiple directions. There is THAW's trademark take on black metal noise, there is drone, last but not least – there is the ability to conduct a unique narrative with music. Intensity combined with abandoning traditional structures make the new effort of one of the most forward-thinking bands an experience one of a kind. A distorted landscape where creation meets destruction perfectly painted.

 

'Grains' has been once again recorded and produced by THAW at Maq Records Studio and Satanic Audio. A cover painting made by Furia's Sars as well as appearances of Maciej Moruś (Mitch & Mitch, ex-Starzy Singers) and Stawrogin (Odraza) only add to the album's mystery and weird magnetism.

 

This fall, THAW is touring Poland with Furia, Sacrilegium and Licho, with more dates to be announced in due time. Often praised for their energetic live appearance, THAW has a stage history with bands such as Jucifer, Altar Of Plagues or Corrections House; they also performed at festivals including Asymmetry Festival, Metalfest, OFF Festival, Under The Black Sun, Castle Party, Inferno Festival, Primavera Sound Festival and Brutal Assault. In 2015, THAW supported Behemoth on their European 'Satanist' tour (alongside Bölzer).
