Brian3737 I let this album languish on my wishlist until the new one came out, and now I’m truly regretting not picking it up much sooner. This band is absolutely killer, and I’m listening to all three albums in constant rotation. Favorite track: Angels, Devils and The Serpent Grey.

JohnFromFlorida Outstanding musicianship & technical excellence by all band members. From "Stygian Rhyme" to "Iris Effect", this album is an epic listening experience. The songs are multifaceted, intricate & most of all, original. I'm gonna have Inconnu on repeat for quite some time.

"Formed in Boonsboro, Maryland, by bassist/vocalist Ron “Fezz” McGinnis (Pale Divine, Admiral Browning, etc.), guitarists Darren “Dirty” Waters (Weed is Weed) and Dan “D-Mize” Mize (Faith in Jane), and drummer Tyler “The Beast” Lee (Weed is Weed), one might expect high-order Frederick-style post-The Obsessed doom. Thonian Horde have more in common with Immortal on their centerpiece track “Darkest Nights Shadow,” and even as the closing “Psychonaut” finds a rock groove in its chorus, it does so with the hooky edge of Satyricon more than any of the members’ other outfits. No doubt that’s the point: doing something different. Indeed, the nine-tracker is a refreshing aesthetic reboot for the scene from whence it comes, holding fast to their region’s crucial lack of pretense even as they brazenly walk their own path – left-hand, of course." - The Obelisk

Track Name: Helltrain
A premonition
of freedom's wane
All fear the presence
of a hell-bound train

Murderous blood keeps engine damp
Grand illumination from brimstone lamp

An imp shovels bones
to the sounds of a thousand groans
As the furnace sings

Rich man and pauper
young lady and hag
Men of all colors
Beggars in rags

The train travels now
at significant rate
Sulphurious flames
Scorch their hands and face

Louder and louder the thunder crashes
Brighter and brighter the lightning flashes
Hotter and hotter the fire becomes
Their clothes set aflame as if burned by the sun

We belittle the weak
We rob the poor
Another brother is turned from your door
You horde the gold where canker rusts
You vent freely in thy bestial lust

Justice scorned corruption the sound
Laws of nature trampled down
The full fare paid

to carry on through
It's only right
that we receive our due
We live our lives in darkest desires
So surely we burn in the lake of fire

Flesh now wasted
Where the flames roar
Now to be tormented forever more

A passage to hell we book every day
No time soon will this go away
The serpent accepts those of his own
Those made of clay your fate is now sown
