Mirrorthrone was born in June 2000 when Vladimir, the sole member of the project, decided to create a more eclectic and symphonic music than what he was used to do in his other musical activities. Two demo CDs were recorded respectively in February 2001 and December 2002. The latter drew the attention of Red Stream Inc. who released in May 2003 the first official Mirrorthrone album entitled "Of Wind and Weeping", a collection of early recording and demo tracks. This debut CD got an overall positive welcome from the specialized press and other music enthusiasts worldwide.
After remaining silent for two long years, Mirrorthrone is now about to unveil its new album "Carriers of Dust", still on Red Stream. Musically, this latest recording is an instable stream where extremities tend to gather constantly; hence the unusual cohabitation of powerful and epic tones alternating with suicidal and desperate colors. Keeping the radical Romantic and Baroque base lead by a blasting extreme metal pace that had built the identity of the previous release, this new opus integrates more diverse influences which give an almost progressive taste to the music. Benefiting from a massively improved production (especially on the drum level) this new release should convince all those who remained skeptic with the debut album.
Another album should see the light in Summer 2006. More soon. [mailinglist ?]
