For those of you who are alien to this band, and in the words of their very own Bandcamp page, let me introduce them to you. They are just, “Four dudes. Some amps. Some drums. Songs about dragons and vikings and giants and shit. Bang your head. Break shit.” Yup, what a cool introduction, surely will develop your interest in this Indiana doom/sludge quartet. Spawned in 2007 THORR-AXE sing about vikings, Norse mythology, incorporating elements as diverse as from black metal while still maintaining the originality of the ever impending doom and sludge metal. They released their 2011 debut album, ‘Wall Of Spears‘, engineered by “Iron” Bob Fouts (Nachtmystium, Chrome Waves, ex-The Gates of Slumber et al). Four years later, THORR-AXE released its sophomore follow-up ‘Gates of Winter‘, a heroic concept album in the vein of the Icelandic Sagas in its scope. In 2017, the band joined forces with Archarus to release “The Hobbit Split,” a telling of J.R.R. Tolkien’s timeless masterpiece in each of the band’s doom-laden approaches. 

Check out the aforementioned split here. And don’t forget to support these doomsters by buying there second full length, ‘Gates Of Winterhere, that came out in 2015.

About Rattlehead

Hi, Rattlehead here. I'm from India, and I'm obsessed with metal of all sub-genres but mostly into thrash and death. I also love other genres, like jazz, funk, rock, some punk, a bit of blues, some country, but well, metal is where I feel at home. I'm always on the run discovering new music. Fanboying Megadeth since I was 13. Love to talk about metal, sports and a little bit of everything here and there. I also love dissing your god, I love food, seeing metal gigs, traveling and also a metal merch and record collector. I hope you like what I write and the music I suggest you. Please do share if you like. Cheers and stay heavy \m/
