Finnish symphonic metal act Epicrenel will release "The Crystal Throne" via Inverse Records. The band comments on the album:
"Proceeding in the vein of those good old school fantasy stories, The Crystal Throne offers some truly firmament touching choruses, challenging atonalish-classical solo escapades and horizon-wide orchestrations alike. All this is bound up with a map, and the tight chronological lyrics where the party travels through the agonizing caves, spacious moors and mountains, all the way to face their final challenge... Are rats capable of defeating a party stumbling in a cave? Can souls be fettered behind bars? Should were-spiders belong to the Amnestys list of endangered species? Is it possible for a lightning to strike at a stony castle tower? Epicrenel provides the answers to these tricky questions with their shamelessly challenging debut album, filling the gaps and expectations of the genre with uncompromising storytelling and high-flying virtuocity. Warning: Contains no dragon ingredients..."
