Ancient Thrones Posts New Song Online

Ancient Thrones have a new single out "Divided/Dissolve," taken off the anguish filled cosmic adventure found in their debut, under this new band name (formerly Abysseral Throne), the album "The Veil," which will be released on November 6th.

"Divided/Dissolve" follows the character of the story into stage four of grief, where he is massively depressed by the revelation feeling the division from his world. From earth crushing riffs and face-melting guitar solos to the overarching theme of grief and devastation that the record encompasses, this single really ramps up the intensity. It stays a fairly constant onslaught of intense guitar riffs while still retaining a melodic edge.

Towards the end, it really shifts gears and slow things way down to some doomy type territory and a very textured fade out outro. The band explains the album in their own words:

"It is the face of endless tragedy through an impressive onslaught of exchanging guitar riffs which show the increased intensity of anguish in the latter half of the album. Pulling you through a hopeless path and digging through the painful burrow of crushing technical sharp death metal until you finally arrive at the earned and complete emotional climax of the record that is the Dissolve. This track takes no prisoners and tolerates no sympathy in its entirety, beckoning you to question your own sorrow and resistance to fulfillment."

The song can be heard below or via its premiere at Brave Words. More...

Ancient Thrones Reveals New Album Details

Ancient Thrones, formerly Abysseral Throne, have a new concept album "The Veil" coming out this year and are teasing fans with the first single "The Soul To Flesh."

More than just a headbanging metal record, "The Veil" ushers in their new image and shows fans their evolution with the first release under the new name. Current fans will be pleasantly surprised and new fans will be intrigued by the familiar melodic material and the upcoming technical and progressive approaches.

Initially very thrashy, the writing for "The Veil" progressed from there into a concept record that intentionally has a beginning, middle, climax, and end with a very cinematic result. Ancient Thrones shares the concept:

"'The Veil' is a 57-minute descent into purgatory. The record subtly follows the 5 stages of grief and the choices we make haunting us into eventual acceptance. It’s about what’s important in life and all we leave behind when we indulge in selfish values. Musically it is a dark passage that digs deeper and becomes more painful as our character discovers more about their past. It’s a concept record broken up into two parts, beginning with a childlike naive perspective in denial and ending with a bittersweet and orchestrated finale into acceptance." More...
