Concept album that is just expertly executed and rich with content
Swedish metal band Throne of Heresy have really delivered a fascinating concept album with the upcoming 'Decameron'. The album explores the Black Plague from its beginnings and ends on the Ostragothian shores where the band calls home. The music as a whole is really well done as it really mirrors each track's lyrical content. So, you get passages of frenetic, aggressive music that seems to signify the arrival and onset of the plague and more subtle music to portray the somber, funereal atmosphere of areas decimated by the BP. Lyrically the album is just incredibly intricate and something that you need to have with you while you are listening to the album to really appreciate what the band has done with this release. I can't remember a concept album that has been so well done that has also captured my attention like this since Edge of Haze's 2014 release, 'Illumine'. If you are a fan of concept albums, enjoy getting into the lyrics of well crafted songs or just like your metal epic, then you need to go out and get your hands on 'Decameron' by Throne of Heresy. It'll check all the buttons and provide with a really phenomenal listening experience.
