Surprises 2010: Thulcandra

Band: Thulcandra
Album: Fallen Angel’s Dominion (first album)
Genre: Black-Death Metal
Country: Germany

Dissection was a big influence for many black-death metal bands, and probably without Dissection, Thulcandra would never exist. They take the legacy of the timeless band of Jon Nödtveidt just after their masterpiece "Storm of the light's bane". So "Fallen Angel's Dominion" could be a worth continuation for those Dissection, Thulcandra even tried to sound just like them, riffs are very similar and even some are almost ripped off from Dissection, song structures are the same, the intro, the names of the songs... even the cover is made by Kristian Wåhlin, who also worked for Dissection among others, of course, blue coloured, as "The somberlain" and "Storm..".
And the cover song... of course.. you guessed well.
For all the fans of the mentioned band, it's worth checking, it's an honorable tribute to one of the greatest black metal bands of all times.

Enlil dijo...

what is "tees"? XD
They are somekind of tribute band, not making cover songs (except the last one) but doing as they were the same Dissection, trying to sound, to compose as they were them more than 10 years ago.
I think it's what they try to do.

Oh. I didn't know that word either...

Enlil, look, I found another band very similar to another band! Maybe you know them already. However, if you don't, I'll let you find out yourself!

Does this artwork style ring a bell? http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/4047/0a346d85ccd4fc2af87d638.jpg

Unha boa banda Hate, e o Erebos para mín debe ser do mellor que sacaron!
Qué raro que che gustara a tí! Ou eu tiña outra percepción dos teus gustos jajaj
Sabías que estiveran no Anoeta o ano pasado? Eu non fora porque máis de 20 euros... e o lugar non é o mellor para ver concertos de metal extremo. Xa sonan coma ruído os que son melódicos... non quero salir daló outra vez cos oídos perforados XD

Qué va, si no los oí, vi las imágenes y me recordaron a Behemoth, y alguien dijo que también sonaban parecidos... yo no podría decir eso por desconocimiento. El otro día pensé en escuchar algo de ellos, que va tocando. A ver si bajo alguno de esos que recomendaste.

not that it's important but for clarity i guess it's triplets after all...:P
