A new band from Germany, but the music is fuckin' old style Heavy/Doom Metal lunacy. The lyrics seem a bit dark though, in the vein of Mercyful Fate, no matter what, the music is filthy and i love it! I hate that ticking sound that more and more bands seem to prefer, so i was disappointed to hear it on some cds i reviewed. Mountain Throne is one of the best Heavy Metal bands out there, they sound evil as fuck, the solos shred like barbed wire and the vocal is like hearing Ozzy Osbourne on Steroids. Would love to see' em live someday, meanwhile i'll give Stormcoven another listen. Cool stuff found on this album!
