Thurisaz bring avant-garde, Belgian doom to Perth for Scottish exclusive
Having just completed a run of Irish dates in October of this year, Thurisaz have now set their sights on the rest of Europe, with their Pulse Of The Mourning tour taking in live appearances in England, Belgium, France, Malta, The Netherlands, and now Scotland.
Topping the bill at the 3rd Hordes Hexmas Bash on December 05th, their latest album – Pulse Of The Mourning – was described by Metal Observer as “an all-encompassing atmosphere that transcends a mere sum of the single parts” (8.5/10), while Metal Underground dubbed their 2004 debut full-length – Scent Of A Dream – “a spectacular piece of work” (4.5/5).
Their main touring support comes in the form of Cheltenham’s Edenfall, who’s dual-vocal, goth-drenched, doom metal is the perfect warm-up for the Belgian’s icy, winter raid. Reminiscent of the likes of My Dying Bride, this tour is the latest addition to Edenfall’s growing catalogue of credible live work, which includes supports with Blaze Bayley, Leaves Eyes, and Hecate Enthroned.
The Perth date will also see these bands joined by a clutch of Scottish supports. East Kilbride’s Not The Messiah, finalists in 2015’s Metal To The Masses in Scotland, bring some brilliant stomping grooves to the table, while Blood Thread from Glasgow delve deep into technical death metal territory.
