THOU ART LORD Apollyon LP BLACK
The second studio opus of majestic blackened metal from 1996 featuring members of Rotting Christ and Necromantia. 2022 black vinyl edition featuring the original artwork & lyrics.
‘Apollyon' was Thou Art Lord's second studio album, and was originally released in 1996. A fine continuation of the groundwork laid on the band's 1994 debut, ‘Eosforos', ‘Apollyon' featured a slightly more refined studio sound, whilst keeping the often chaotic “attack” elements to the compositions alongside more slow and mid-tempo sections. ‘Apollyon' also featured an injection of thrash metal styled riffing among the black metal, along with the returning keyboard presence, draping sections in an eerie layer of darkness, and including more classically arranged type interludes.
