Genre: Black Metal Ambient Noise
Recorded at Mad Studio, September 2012.
"If you’re hoping to hear any old school, traditional black metal vibes, Thaw doesn’t do that either. The self-titled is a demonstration of great experimental black metal made in a modern age and despite missing that important something, is still worth multiple listens." - SPUTNIK MUSIC
"The songs on this album all run together, creating the impression of one singular, epic composition. It is easy to get lost in THAW’s expansive, dark soundscapes, only to be suddenly and violently jerked back into reality by an onslaught of punishing riffs and tortured vocals. Again and again we are put in a trance and subsequently ripped from it, journeying through an expansive array of stylistic worlds in the process." - ABSOLUTE HELL
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
