Released: February 2017
Style: Black/Death Metal
Standard CD format. 3 demo tracks
Thou Art Lord was formed as a side project by the masterminds Sakis Tolis (of Rotting Christ fame) and The Magus (Necromantia) back in 1993. They were aiming for quite brutal, relentless black metal sound and this demo is exactly what they wanted it to be. “The Era of Satan Rising”, “Praising the Impure”, “In Blood We Trust”. The demo is also remarkable for being the most melodic offering by Thou Art Lord. Their debut album “Eosforos” is still in the same vein, but has a more brutal and already less melodic edge.
Recommended for fans of Rotting Christ, Venom, Varathron.
