2007 – até o momento (11 anos)
Good Pagan-Metal does not necessarily has to come from the northern hemisphere,
which is best shown by the band Thorondir. The six bavarian guys founded their
band back in 2007 and already got a deal with the Austrian label CCP-Records
(former bands: XIV Dark Centuries, Riger) the following year.
In spring 2009 Thorondir released their debut album "Düsterwald" on the national and
The debut album got good to very good reviews in respective print- and online
magazines (LEGACY, EMP, MetalMessage, etc.). The band was able to challenge
several live performances in the same as well as in the following year. That is why
Thorondir can look back to concerts and festivals (Legacy-Fest 2009, MetalForce,
Boarstream) with bands like Ensiferum, XIV Dark Centuries, Satyricon, Eisregen,
Belphegor, Gernotshagen, Black Messiah.
In 2010 the band decided to record their new album in the Woodshed Studio of Viktor
Bullok alias V. Santura (Tryptikon, Dark Fortress).
After a successful debut two years ago, Thorondir then vociferously released their
second album "Aus jenen Tagen" and is about to set new and distinctive standards in
German Pagan Metal. The band shows itself from a much harder, more melodic and
much more perfect side, however they remain true to the style of their album
"Düsterwald". With an unchanged instrumentation cast the six warriors want to bring
the myths and legends of their homeland to the metal world.
In terms of music Thorondir has grown since the first album and presents itself more
versatile than before. They emphasize an unprecedented arrangement of profound
lyrics, which combine old-Bavarian legends and pagan traditions, with a powerful and
skillful mixture of pagan- and black metal. The guitars are more aggressive and more
melodic. Hard guitar riffs and striking leads create an impressive atmosphere. In terms
of the bass-guitar, the instrument comes more to the fore and gives everything a more
vivid touch. All this is lead by a storm of drums consisting of fast blastbeats and series
of doublebasses as well as rhythmic and silent accompaniment. The vocals with their
variation from screaming to deep growling are even more brutal than before. With the
folkloric and harmonic keyboard sounds the whole album gains its perfection.
