Throne Of Katarsis - New Album Details Revealed

Norwegian black metal horde Throne Of Katarsis are planning to release their third album, Ved Graven, this autumn.

Ved Graven (fundamentally translated to "at the grave") is ultimately the darkest material written by the band since their inception in 2004. Cold and raw, and with the bizarre aura of an everlasting funeral, Throne of Katarsis recorded the seven rites of this album over three long nights, recording in total darkness. All instruments and vocals were recorded in a live séance in order to capture the aura the band creates during their convocations. Several guitar leads were added to this sinister mix, as well as an organ, recorded during a late night ceremony at a local church in Norway.
