‘Thorns’ was the band’s debut full-length studio album. It was released in 2001 & is a cult slice of highly-individual Norwegian black metal, including experimental & sometimes industrial influences along with synth passages to create a chilling yet clinical slice of extremity.
Thorns was formed by Snorre W. Ruch, Marius Vold and Bård G. Eithun in 1989, initially under the moniker Stigma Diabolicum. After the first demo was recorded, Stigma Diabolicum began to fall apart, and following the Trøndertun demo, Ruch continued Thorns as a solo project, with the help of several prominent members of the Norwegian black metal scene. The demos / rehearsal tapes Grymyrk and Trøndertun had a great impact on the black metal scene.READ MORE
