"Throned In Blood may very well be the masterpiece Jucifer have been building up to their entire career... a religious experience."
“Throned In Blood” is the first album that captures the pure essence of what makes Jucifer special and is an easy contender for album of the year.
"The combination of music and lyrics works to devastating effect"
"After hearing Throned In Blood I feel sorry for other doom and sludge bands"
"Every bit as destructive, raw, and forceful as the band's monolithic wall of sound"
"Tour de force of screeching guitars, bizarre rhythms, heavy sludge riffs and vocals that sound like a demon being beaten by a whip dipped in acid. This is weird art metal that never loses sight of the fact that it’s, well, metal. And I love the idea that this really cute girl can go toe to toe with any enormous hairy death metal barker and make him her bitch."
Vicious: the only means of possibly conveying the overwhelming force when experiencing ― not hearing ― experiencing the obliterating, violent, raw and embittered torment that erupts forth from gypsy sludge metal duo Jucifer with fifth full-length Throned In Blood. Abrupt yet exhaustive in its 36 minutes of wailing agony, beastly, dominant riffs, raging drums and the odd eerily sugary harmony to keep things chaotic, the album's nine tracks are ferocious in their apocalyptic abandon and composed unravelling. Lumbering with menacing power and haunting beauty, a relentless echo and reverberation underline and punctuate rhythmic girth reminiscent of Dave Grohl's early skin-pounding and the rich thunder of Metallica's "The Thing That Should Not Be." That is, when the band aren't ravaging with the scorching tempos and hyperactive rage black metal has yearned for since its calamitous formation. Dark, cryptic, artistic and provocative, Throned In Blood takes 2008's L'Autrichienne and amplifies it through a thousand Orange amps, possessed vengeance and guttural fury. While it's hard to believe such sonic overload could come from only two bodies, with its mind-numbing presence and impact, Throned In Blood is an overwhelming onslaught of metallic venom.
