I know you all remember the great Thrawsunblat demo from 2010. At that time I thought of Thrawsunblat just being a project of Joel Violette. But I was wrong. Although or just because the sad death of David Gold (both played also in Woods Of Ypres) Joel Violette concentrated again on Thrawsunblat.
The 2010 demo which was first released as a torrent for free download was downloaded over 14.000 times. And now ladies and gentlemen: There’s an album by Thrawsunblat.
It is called
II: Wanderer on the Continent of Saplings
You can listen to it and get it on bandcamp! The new album has a lot more folk influences than the demo. But after first listening: It’s a great piece of music with great melodies and a lot of metal in it. Raw/black melodic folk metal!
The currrent line up is:
Joel Violette: Songs, guitars, vocals, keys.
Rae Amitay: Skillfully smashing loud things.
Brendan Hayter: Skillfully plucking bass strings.
…and always remember David Gold – R.I.P.
