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 shortly after – 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 (mainman Tony Kakko is a big THAUROROD fan, by the way), DRAGONFORCE and STRATOVARIUS, but the band has managed to carve a niche of its own. The typical THAUROROD style is now striving for perfection on the second album “Anteinferno” that will be released December 20, 2013 via NoiseArt Records.
"Anteinferno" is quite different from its predecessor – straighter, catchier and much more refined! Lyric-wise, THAUROROD once more delve into historic battles – for example a part of the Rose Wars in Towton, England 1461. The title track clearly refers to Dante Alighieri`s "Divine Comedy". Just like it was the case with "Upon Haunted Battlefields", the cover artwork has been taken care of Ken Kelly of MANOWAR fame.
