Death-Worshipping Black Metal from the Florida swamps. A ritualistic and transcendent sonic offering unto Death, the Devil, and Choronzon
Formed in Chicago in the dark, cold winter of 2015, Bolthorn began to craft their unique tomes of riff-heavy, crushing black metal for their first recording: Menslich Dämmerung, a six song EP. Bolthorn’s norsk-tinged, at times progressive take on apocalyptic black metal speaks cautionary tales that morph from the voice of the egregiously victimized masses of our suffering planet, to the personal fires of struggle that haunt all living beings, our petty ancient gods forever lurking in the shadows, cackling at our condition. Bolthorn stand in solidarity with all those battling bigotry, homophobia, and sexism. For fans of Bathory, Dark Throne, Gorgoroth, Mayhem, Agalloch, Behemoth, Enslaved, Satyricon, and Black Sabbath.
Black Metal band screaming the lament of Mother Earth. For humanity’s destruction had made her Haggathorn.
