ALBUM: Thrown to the Sun – “Out of Themselves Things Will Come”
GENRE: Death Metal
RATING: 8.5 / 10
From a production standpoint, much like their debut, the album sound terrific for an independent release. Levels are very logical and the mix allows for every instrument to have its time in the spotlight while allowing the songs to breathe. While I would definitely call this death metal, I think the last word I would ever use to describe their sound is brutal. Huge, crushing, and evil riffs are just not what these guys do. Instead, Thrown to the Sun use death metal as way of creating a beautiful method of musical storytelling, and it’s simply superb.
If you’ve never heard this band before, and the odds are you haven’t, you should check this album out. They’re very good at what they do. If death metal with a touch of progressive metal sounds appealing to you, try Thrown to the Sun. You won’t be disappointed. Do I like this album as much as their debut? Well, no. That album holds a special place in my cold, soulless heart. However, this album is really, really good.
