(1989 – present)

There’s more than one artist under this name:
1. Thorns (formed as Stigma Diabolicum, but changed name to Thorns after two years) is a Norwegian band, masterminded by Blackthorn (Snorre W. Ruch - also in Mayhem and Satyricon). They made two highly influential demos in the early 90’s, Grymyrk and Trøndertun, but have only released one full-length album, since the band was founded, in 1989.

Blackthorn was involved in the infamous murder of fellow Mayhem guitar player Euronymous (accompanying his killer, Varg Vikernes, on the long car journey to Euronymous’ flat). He was convicted to 8 years in prison.

    About the Satyricon gig, too bad they only performed Stellar Master Elite and World Playground Deceit (the only songs I payed any real attention too). My underwear would have gotten wet if they had performed Vortex. Now we have to wait only 5 or 6 years for the album. So it should be released in a heartbeat.

    Great news! Haven't really been too enthusiastic about the Satyricon gig but after reading this I have a reason to really look forward to it.

    THORNS/SNORRE RUCH TO PLAY LIVE! From Satyricon's Facebook page: "Rockefeller 21st of March! More and more guests are getting onboard for this special night and check this out: Snorre Ruch/S.W Krupp/Blackthorn, the mastermind of many names, shapes and forms is coming to play Thorns with us! The cult act Thorns is one of Black Metal's first and most inspirational band, influencing bands like Mayhem, Darkthrone, Emperor, Burzum and so on. Satyr has worked closely with Thorns' music, and Mr Ruch worked closely with Satyricon on Now, Diabolical and The Age Of Nero. Together we will perform classic songs from the album Thorns that Satyr co-produced and did vocals on. Thorns do not play live, so this is the first time these song will be performed live with one of Norwegian Black Metal's most influential artists on stage for this exclusive. "
