After bursting out of the gates with lead single ‘Crocodile Eggs’ late last year, Perth heavy metal act ThunderBlood have dropped another stunning video from their debut album “The Final Beginning”.
Based in a catchy and rocky rhythm, ‘Being Unto Death’ is a morbid existential dirge which swells into a grandiose anthem on life and the inevitability of death and lands, as ThunderBlood tends to do, somewhere in the uncanny valley between the epic and the mundane, between seriousness and fun. The accompanying music video was produced with award-winning videographer Peter Renzullo of Scudley Films.
Engineered and mixed by Simon Mitchell [Chaos Divine] and mastered by Forrester Savell [Karnivool, Make Them Suffer, Animals As Leaders]), “The Final Beginning” is set to be released on March 4th with the band launching it at Lynott’s Lounge in Perth with support from Psychonaut, Vanadium B.C. and Vile Mutilation.
Forged deep within the earth’s crust over unfathomable aeons, a rare composite of unique elements erupts into our midst!! Perth-based metal four-piece ThunderBlood is comprised of former members of Extant, Tabryss and Reaper’s Riddle – now metamorphosed into a heavy ass band which stubbornly defies any further classification!
An enigmatic presence in the Perth metal scene for several years, ThunderBlood has made a serious impression on those who have experienced their theatrical and entertaining live shows and powerful, meaty riffs. With a broad stylistic range, their sound is rooted in groovy rhythms with tasty licks and catchy choruses (with just a pinch of tongue-in-cheek humour). Walking the line between hard rock, classic heavy metal and more modern metal, ThunderBlood presents a solid and hard-hitting sound with songs full of character and intense, engaging and fun live performances.
Having played in and around Perth since 2019, including Metal United Down Under (2021), Hornography and supporting interstate touring band Hidden Intent (SA), ThunderBlood has slowly but surely amassed a curiosity and an intrigue around their unusual style which stands out from their peers and refuses to fit neatly into any generic box.
