‘Silence in the snow’ is an improvement on ‘vengeance falls’, but overall it’s something of a disappointment and I can’t help but feel that the band that gave us the excellence ‘shogun’ and the wonderful ‘in waves’ are capable of producing better.
Evocative and exciting, ‘were we ever here’ is a remarkable return and essential listening for any indie/shoegaze fans out there.
Dark, brooding and subtle, although more than capable of delivering a vicious punch, ‘Cathedral’ is a brilliantly dark EP that will stay with you long after it has finished playing.
This album is the product of a musician who is content to lay the past to rest quietly and with dignity and move calmly forward under his own steam and it is a beautiful exploration of a prodigious talent.
Highly recommended, this is a brutal, intelligent and inventive death metal album that will leave all but the clinically dead gasping in its wake, and it deserves to see TBDM gaining ever more fans with its short, sharp anthems of destruction.
Great news for Thunder fans, a UK tour is scheduled for February whilst a triple DVD is set to arrive soon. Details inside.

It’s a concert that proves to be exciting, celebratory and full of great moments from the amazingly theatrical segue from acoustic to electric band to the down-to-earth and humble introductions of Joe’s fellow musicians and it is an absolute pleasure from start to finish.
