If you were to look up throes in the dictionary, the definition found is overbearingly bleak;
‘Intense or violent pain and struggle, especially accompanying birth, death, or great change.’
With this in mind, it’s somewhat apt that Idaho based US band THROES have taken up this moniker. Formed from the ashes of Bone Dance, the five piece sludge and metallic hardcore merchants are set to unleash their maleficent debut album ‘In the Hands of an Angry God’ on Holy Roar Records.
The US band cover plenty of ground on with their sound, which has the familiarity of Cult Leader’s push/pull of grind and sludge coupled with the sonic density of modern greats Amenra and Neurosis. What sets them apart, however, is the brutishly premeditative urgency on display. It's easy to get swept up in adjectives and hyperbole, so instead, just trust us when we say that THROES' 'In The Hands Of An Angry God' is prime aural barbarity.
