ON THORNS I LAY are Greek titans. Where their peers in Rotting Christ, Septicflesh and Nightfall were swayed more by symphonic and black metal, the Athenian band went for a taste of the gothic on their 1994 debut. Which makes sense: after all, they are named after a Shakespeare sonnet.


Thirty years and ten albums later, ON THORNS I LAY are releasing a self-titled album that pushes death-doom to epic heights, casting a newborn Gothic glow over muscular riffs and cavernous vocals hearkening back to the halcyon days of early ‘90s death-doom.

 

For fans of (early) PARADISE LOST, SEPTICFLESH, MY DYING BRIDE, (early) ANATHEMA, NIGHTFALL.
