"THE BIRTH OF THUNDER"
THUNDERWAR is a relatively new band from Warsaw, Poland. They are a 4 piece true
epic Death Metal band. Those people who are big Death Metal or Black Metal fans
know that there is a lot of quality bands who come from Poland, THUNDERWAR is one
of them! The lyrical themes are battles, Norse, and, Mythology. When they started back
in 2011 they were called PERUN until 2012 when they changed their name to
THUNDERWAR. The band released "THE BIRTH OF THUNDER" in November of
2013 a 4 track EP independent release, one of the tracks is an instrumental. I believe the
name of the album says a lot, the band signifies the birth of a great band (The Birth Of
Thunder). When I hear this album I get the same feeling then when I heard old MORBID
ANGEL or DISINCARNATE for the first time over 20 years ago. I am super excited
about this band because they maintain that old school Death Metal feel and there isn't
that many bands that have that brutal sound anymore. With all the hybrid bands out there
it's hard to find old school Death Metal bands, especially new bands! It is in the bloodline
of MORBID ANGEL, OBITUARY and CARCASS.
