OBSCURA mastermind Steffen Kummerer continues his musical journey through time by taking Thulcandra‘s latest album, “Under a Frozen Sun“, back to the Sweden of the early 90s. The entire band is deeply rooted in the infamous sound of Sweden’s black death metal, which combines scorching riffs, anthemic melodies, delicate solos supported by driving drums, and intense vocal renditions.
Thulcandra is able to find a balance between ice-cold heaviness and melodic appeal. The uncompromising tracks reveal myriad hidden details without ever losing a beat. “Under a Frozen Sun” upholds tradition by once again relying on the production expertise of V. Santura (Woodshed Studios) and artistic mastery of the legendary Kristian “Necrolord” Wåhlin. Thulcandra also includes a cover of Unanimated‘s classic track “Life Demise” to pay homage to a style brought back to life with blazing intensity.
