The gods have favoured us today! Atmospheric death doom metalband ON THORNS I LAY are announcing the first details of their debut album “On THorns I Lay”!
The album will be released on October 13, 2023 via Season of Mist and a first track ‘Newborn Skies’ is now available.

ON THORNS I LAY comment on the new track: “Newborn skies” is talking about this critical moment in life when you need to reconsider, reanimate and restart in order to keep going and follow your dreams . No matter how dark the ride has been, no matter how difficult and obscure, you have to take the final decision you still have your fate in your hands.”

ON THORNS I LAY started as a death metal band together with other cult bands in Greece in the early 90’s such as Rotting Christ, Septic Flesh, Necromantia, Nightfall and started to spread their name in the local and global underground scene.

ON THORNS I LAY have released 9 albums so far such as Orama, Crystal Tears, Aegean Sorrow and Threnos gaining great reviews in (Scream Norway, album of the month, Inferno Finland 5/5, Metal Storm Top 5 albums of 2020 and many others…). The have shared the stage with great bands such as Dream Theater, In Flames, Anathema, Amorphis, Katatonia, Rotting Christ, Tiamat, The Gathering, Satyricon, Septic Flesh and many more…

Their music style is pure atmospheric melodic doom death metal!

ON THORNS I LAY’s last album “Threnos” followed the path of atmospheric, yet emotional Doom Death Metal – paying tribute to the roots and representing the trademark sound of the band once again. ON THORNS I LAY continue to tell dense stories of loss and despair.

After their mini tour at the Baltic states with Rotting Christ  they signed a deal with the world famous record label Season Of Mist and they have finished the recordings of their 10th album entitled ‘On Thorns I Lay to be released in 2023.
