ARCHAIC THORN come from Lichtenstein, Saxony and with ''In Desolate Magnificence'' they have set their first bigger fragrance brand. There are certain records where, just from looking at the album artwork, you can get a really good sense of what the music is going to be like. Whether it's Black Metals grainy, monochrome visuals, or Death Metals more violent and garish layouts, every genre has its own distinctive look that sets it apart from the other forms of music.This 28 minutes MCD is one of those records that perfectly blends the dense and oppressive Death Metal style with the cryptic and funeral tones of Black Metal. There's a lot of great material on here, and each of the five tracks that it comprises of are bonafide tunes in their own regard. Everything about this record, from the music, to the production to the excellent artwork it's guaranteed to leave all who come across it in awe of its magnificence. This CD-Edition is limited to 500 copies.
