Thursday, was originally called Thorsday in honor of the Norse god of thunder, Thor. Forse those that didn’t spend their adolescence reading comic books and myths in the library, Thor is basically a gigantic ripped norse dude that loves getting in fights, drinking beer, and generally fucking shit up by being a meathead. If metal wasn’t by nature a godless and/or Satanic genre, Thor would be the god of Metal.
Celebrating the de facto god of metal’s day, we present to you Lord Dying, a doomy metal band from the mist filled forests of Portland. Their track “In a Frightful State of Gnawed Dismemberment” is exactly the type of shit the god of Thunder would ride to as he traveled across the bifrost to wage unending war with Loki on Earth. Translated from nerd speak, the shit is extremely brolic. Head banging will ensue. Recommended for fans of early Mastodon, Swarm of the Lotus, and Baroness.
Dudes have just signed with the legendary Relapse Records and should have a record out soon. If it’s anything like this song, we’re looking at a strong contender for metal album of 2013.- raythedestroyer
