Versus the Throne

Münster (Germany) based Versus The Throne was founded in late 2006 from the wish of guitarist Tristan Hachmeister and drummer Tommas Bauer to create music that was at the same time aggressive and melodic, epic, destructive, and honest.

Recruiting singer Matthias Held and bassist Sebastian Stening (plus a first second guitarist), they found themselves bonding perfectly at the very first rehearsal and decided to name the band BLOOD SPENCER .

Playing their first show in October of their founding year, they already gave the impression of being an energetic live band with loads of potential.

Following a couple changes at the position of second guitar, they got their good friend Timo Lohmann on board, and with now over 120 shows and 3 DIY records
2006’s Face Off,
2007’s …The Distance Remains,
and 2008’s Our Prophecy Resides
to their credit, the outfit’s managed to become a constant on the Metal/ Hardcore scene!

They decided to take things to a next level (going professional musicians) in April 2009, and finding the bandname didn’t fit the band members’ expectations anymore, the guys changed it to Versus The Throne.

They also signed onto a professional booking agent (Mad Tourbooking, whom also handle/ handled All Shall Perish, Hatebreed, Sworn Enemy, and more of that alike…), and signed to Imperial Clothing for their merchandise, while gaining several endorsements as well.
Having also secretively signed to Bastardized Recordings, they made recordings for this album at the famed Rape Of Harmonies Studio in July, and as a result fans of Metalcore can now find Ruins Afire in shops around the globe!
