"Blackened death outfit Empty Throne are a new band, but their experience is far from in question. Containing current and former members of Possessed, Abbath, Angerot, The Kennedy Veil and Decrepit Birth, Empty Throne are a thrashy blackened death powerhouse who hit the gas pedal and don’t let up until it’s over on their debut EP, "Glossolalia." - DECIBEL MAGAZINE
"Glossolalia" is a perfect blend of cornerstone metal genres that will leave you unsure of whether to sip a crimson glass of red wine or slam a PBR; run amok in a circle pit or sacrifice a goat; and plaster on corpsepaint or dig up a corpse to be your next sex slave. Oh yea, the thrash! I guess you’ll have to do all of your above choices while riding a skateboard on the way to get a pizza as well." - LAST RITES
Blackened death thrashers Empty Throne are a quartet of veteran hellbringers with a deep lineage in extreme metal. The members hail from multiple regions of the United States, with vocalist C.R. Petit and bassist Jason Ellsworth (both of Angerot) calling the heartland of South Dakota home. Meanwhile, drummer Gabe Seeber (The Kennedy Veil, Decrepit Birth, Abbath) and six-string assassin Michael Joseph Pardi (Possessed, Draconis, Ritual) hail from California. But distance has done nothing to hinder the power and momentum of the band’s three-song debut EP, "Glossolalia."
After members of Angerot met Pardi in Sioux Falls, they learned that Pardi had a treasure trove of unused song ideas. Pardi’s serrated riffs have aged like sacrificial wine. With Petit’s venomous and eclectic delivery and Ellsworth’s ripping bass talents, the only weapon missing was a percussive force. Enter Gabe Seeber, a true drumming dynamo.
With their lineup assembled, Empty Throne repurposed Pardi’s riffs to craft the three dynamic and ornate epics composing "Glossolalia." The band is unbeholden to a single genre, and their songs surge with the wild blood of extreme metal's history. There’s the violent propulsion of ‘80s thrash. The agile savagery of death metal circa 1994, with Gothenburg adornments and rabid vocals. Those influences seamlessly blend with the ambitious scope and shadow-dwelling atmospheres of 21st century black metal. The songs crawl with demons, vampires, and humanity’s own self-inflicted horrors—all courtesy of Petit’s gripping lyrics.
At 23 minutes of length, these three songs form a formidable EP announcing Empty Throne with a riveting roar. Hell’s gates have opened wide, and Empty Throne has emerged from the flames.
