The Southern California-based symphonic black metal group, Empyrean Throne, hailed by Decibel as “one of U.S. black metal’s most exciting up-and-coming bands,” will support Dutch occultists Carach Angren on the Western leg of their fall tour. Dates are listed below.The performances mark Empyrean Throne’s first extensive run of dates since the group terrorized the West Coast with Wolf King last December. Since then, the band has continued to perform frequently in their native California, but the Carach Angren tour will reintroduce Empyrean Throne to audiences in the Northwest and Southwest.
Says vocalist Andrew Knudsen, “We in Empyrean Throne are beyond excited to have the opportunity to be a part of Carach Angren’s first U.S. headlining tour. Carach Angren has always delivered a unique and fresh take on the symphonic black metal genre, which has been both invigorating and inspiring to us musicians and artists. We are equally excited to be performing alongside Mors Principium Est and Wolfheart on the west coast leg of this October campaign. Both bands pull no punches and push the boundaries of extreme metal. We cannot wait to share our debut album ‘Chaosborne’ in company with this prestigious line up!”

2017 saw the long-awaited release of EMPYREAN THRONE’s debut full length record “Chaosborne”, produced by Mick Kenney (Anaal Nathrakh, Motionless In White). With over an hour of music, “Chaosborne” is a titan of a record pushing the boundaries of modern extreme metal while lurching deeper into the infernal depths of Black Metal and higher unto the celestial domain of orchestral concert music, receiving praise from notable publications such as No Clean Singing, Metal Tranches, and Metal Injection. Amidst the albums eleven venomous tracks of sonic devastation, “Chaosborne” takes the listener on a journey following an idealistic Templar knight’s decent deep into the maw of the pan-dimensional realm of Chaos. While struggling to survive against the eldritch horrors of this Lovecraftian monarchy, the Templar faces punishment, loss, one’s darkest fears, and ultimately the Elder Gods themselves in an epic tale of self-discovery.

Through these achievements, and with the support of their ever-growing legion of disciples, Empyrean Throne continues to spread their voice through their campaign of unharnessed Chaos.
