Song of the Day: Crimson Thorn - Thy Neighbor

By in News | 4 Comments

Lovers of traditional, old school death metal will know there is a significant lack of it coming from bands with a Christian worldview. The reasons for this are complex, and we won’t get into them here, except to say that it probably has something to do with the lyrical themes that often accompany their secular counterparts: death, gore, and the occult all being regular topics. Minnesota’s Crimson Thorn have often led the way in Christ-centered brutal death metal. Building on work from predecessors like Australia’s Mortification, CT got even heavier and unlike the boys from down under, Crimson Thorn didn’t dabble in other styles. In fact, by the time Purification dropped (their third album), they had become the standard bearers in Christian death metal. Here’s the catchy and brutally heavy track, “Thy Neighbor” from Purification. Enjoy it loudly!

I would love to see this get remixed/mastered and rereleased. Old school death is sorely lacking representation in the christian market.
