THIRD STORM - Tarîtîya Me MCD
THIRD STORM was formed in 1986 in Uppsala, Sweden by four people who shared the same passion for the underground extreme music and at that time was very much influenced by acts like BATHORY, VENOM, HELLHAMMER etc. THIRD STORM performed about a dozen shows at that time ‘til they finally split up in 1988. But the past decade or so people have seriously been taken interest in the past and found about this obscure strange band who is more known for their name than their music. The stuff the band recorded in the 80s is rare as hell, a couple of recordings were made just for the band themselves and very few copies were spread back in the old days of tape trading. The music back then was very primitive and raw, like other black metal bands at that time the music was thrash influenced but with a very noisy touch. THIRD STORM’s new line up consists of two original members, vocalist Heval Bozarslan (SARCASM) and guitarist Jimmy Eriksson. Guitarist David Eriksson (ANGUISH), bassist Daniel Ekeroth (USURPRESS/IRON LAMB) and drummer Johan Ericsson joined forces to complete the black circle and set the tone for the black/doom metal the band just presented as the “Tarîtîya Me” EP released in september this year on Dark Descent Records. The dark spirit of THIRD STORM today is the same as in 1986, but the musical direction is breaking new grounds and new sinister elements are added. The music is doomier, darker and ridden with an atmosphere that will scare the hell out of people. This EP is just a foretaste of what will come, the band just announced that their first full length (hopefully released sometime 2016) will be a concept album and part one of a trilogy.
