The first single “The Lost King” shows already what you could expect from THANATEROS after its reincarnation: catchy violin-melodies, driving beats, hard guitars and electrifying refrains – united in a harmonious soundscape.
After four highly praised CDs, many tours (e.g. with IN EXTREMO, UMBRA ET IMAGO and the FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM-follow-up band NFD) and lots of festival appearances (e.g. with SALTATIO MORTIS, SUBWAY TO SALLY, ASP, CLAN OF XYMOX and FIDDLER'S GREEN) mastermind Ben Richter broke up the band in 2009. And now he’s bringing THANATEROS back to life.
With a new line-up THANATEROS present their new masterpiece “INSOMNIA” which contains 13 brand-new tracks.
With “INSOMNIA” THANATEROS are breaking new ground. The last three CDs were characterised by traditional Irish folk instruments. But even if the new line-up contains a violin player again, Irish folk belongs to the past. A dense atmosphere and intense and dark soundscapes define the new sound of THANATEROS in 2019. Nevertheless, THANATEROS still emphasise on driving beats and heavy guitars. And of course, great, entraining and catchy melodies are also still characterising the music of THANATEROS.
