THAUROROD - NEW VIDEO ONLINE PRIOR TO ALBUM RELEASE
THAUROROD have a brand new video online for the song "OVERBOARD". Perfectly prior to the upcoming album "Anteinferno", which will be released on December 20th via Noise Art Records. Song is a perfect example for the Epic Symphonic Metal the band plays and surely an early Christmas present. Talking about x-mas and having some good music as a perfect gift: "Anteinferno" will be released still early enough for that.
Enter to official Thaurorod shop
THAUROROD also plays a record release show on the release day at Bar Bäkkäri in Helsinki. The setlist includes almost all the songs from the new album.

THAUROROD - COME UP WITH EXCLUSIVE SONG "HEART OF THE LION" UPFRONT TO THE ALBUM RELEASE
Finnish THAUROROD are releasing an exclusive track prior to the release of their new album “Anteinferno”, which will come out on Deember 20th via NoiseArt Records. The song is entitled “Heart Of The Lion”.
Fans as well as interested people who haven ´t heard about THAUROROD so far can check it out here:
The track is a perfect example for the Epic Symphonie Metal the band plays. “HEART OF THE LION is very melodic and catchy but also quite atmospheric tune! It has groovy beats and riffs, awesome vocal lines and nice keyboard stuff! It’s a cool song and most importantly, it makes you feel good!” Lasse from Thaurorod explains.
The guys are often compared with genre heroes such as SONATA ARCTICA (Mainman Tony Kakko even is a big fan of them), DRAGONFORCE or STRATOVARIUS, but even though the band has developed their own style.
The cover artwork is done – as already for the last record „Upon Haunted Battlefields“ – by MANOWAR ´s home artist Ken Kelly.

THAUROROD UNVEIL COVER ARTWORK, RELEASE DATE AND TRACKLISTING OF UPCOMING ALBUM ANTEINFERNO
THAUROROD leapt out of the Finnish underground in 2010: after the newcomers made quite some heads turn with their first three EPs, their debut „Upon haunted battlefields“ put them right on the map with the big players of metal! No wonder they were picked as support act for SABATON`s EU tour– and in 2011 THAUROROD gained even more fans on tour with SYMPHONY X and NEVERMORE.
Their secret for success? Their unique version of epic symphonic metal and power metal! The sixpiece is often compared to genre overlords SONATA ARCTICA, DRAGONFORCE and STRATOVARIUS, but the band has managed to carve a niche of its own.
Just like it was the case with “Upon haunted battlefields”, the cover artwork for “Anteinferno“ has been taken care of by Ken Kelly of MANOWAR fame. “I found this masterpiece with all the strong colors of the flames and a warrior on a horse and thought it would fit perfectly, but also would reflect the battle themes and the theme of the last song which is about the world’s biggest horse breed, the Shire horse, which was used in medieval battles ages ago. So I would say it’s a pretty perfect cover for this album!” explains Pasi Tanskanen.
