    When releasing their debut album, Rock Tribune wrote that “Thyrant is heading for a bright future!" and Devils Gate Media said that “Musically, Thyrant are like a well-aimed punch to the solar plexus". A new well-aimed punch of metal is ready for release, and their sophomore album "Katabasis" will be out on July 17!


    Thyrant on the process of working on the new album: "There was just a blank piece of paper, an empty wall when we went back to the rehearsal room after the first album. With just a few written sketches but nothing really clear on what path we wanted to take. We parted ways with our previous vocalist and felt like we couldn´t do the same kind of songs again. It was a much different feeling."

    But the new frontman Ocram had ideas for a new theme and the band quickly found new creative ground. "We wanted to tell a story of someone going through something difficult, and how to manage finding a release from the negative impact. It was like the real catharsis of everything that we experienced within the last year, which was really hard to go through on a personal level. We went through this process without noticing it at all, a very unconscious-like process, finding the cure to move to the next step. It's a bit hard to explain.
    The music started to come to light and Ocram made all the connections with the lyrics. Then we 'sewed' the different songs with instrumental interludes to create oneiric parts that connect the different songs as chapters, trying to go smooth from one song to another. It was like painting on a more specific canvas, meeting the limits of certain style of music we wanted to be into, but with no limitations in the creative process. It was a bit like 'I don´t know what I want, but I know exactly what I don´t want'."


    The new album is a killer 8-track metal release, taking Thyrant to the next level. "Katabasis" will be out on July 17th.

1.
Face the hypnotic eyes of doom, …To the words that rip your soul, Face the mountain that rises over you… Face the Thyrant. Grab the sand of time and spread it along your way, Search the secret dreams of your existence and embrace them. At the labyrinth of walls that whisper your name, Searching for a muting key in the dark. Be the blinding flame!!! Memories of forget dimensions, wounds from old lose battles, Tears shed to the underworld, in the emptiness of your hopes. Confuse emotions collide with the impregnable face of impassivity. Face the Thyrant!! Face the hypnotic eyes of doom, …To the words that rip your soul, Face the mountain that rises over you… Grab the sand of time and spread it along your way, Search the secret dreams of your existence and embrace them.

…And the air turned dusty and the oceans dried up, Blazes that sing a sinister melody. Cosmic sands of hell! Abysses!! Of primitive creatures twisting like adders, A triangle of suns that feeds the incandescent land, Sandy mantle that spreads across the deepest universe, From its surface emerges an ethereal veil. Dunes of desolation, cosmic sands of hell, Dunes of desolation, built by the architects of the abomination, In flames and sand my world sinks. Dreamlike hills of ashes rose like titans, Dunes of desolation, cosmic sands of hell, Dunes of desolation, between black oceans

Black Oceans 08:24
Under a dim light, Under secretive looks, With no destination, With no expectation. In the vastness of this ocean, Lashed by the waves of fear, Pushed by the winds of madness, Guided by an ephemeral lighthouse, Lost in the oceans of my mind, In this inverse reality, Suspended in the great black mass, Dominated by myself, Disoriented and confused, Defeated by the tide, Titanic shadows, swim under my feet, The light escapes, from this thick darkness, In the vastness of this ocean, Lashed by the waves of fear, Pushed by the winds of madness, Guided by an ephemeral lighthouse

Desperate and exhausted, long time looking for you, Need a direction, need the shelter I had in you, Cursed by your absence, Feel you far away, hidden among hazes of solitude Cold and inert is my existence, Without your presence I fear of dying in the immensity, Against the current the adversity wounds me, Like sharp blades that rip my flesh, I don’t feel the pain, only feel your signals, I don’t need to see, only your attraction, Don’t know this world, only what you show me… Don’t know this world, only what you show me, Just a brief glint of you, is the only thing I need, (Migue) Tuck me with your light, warm my frosted skin, Beaten by the shadows of your void, Grant me an instant of your majesty, Grant me a second of clarity, An illuminated horizon, A crack of life in this lethargic world.

Walls of fire to the stars As a candle that shows me the universe, Mouth of darkness, Stairs to unknown worlds, Silence at the entrance of oblivion, Where the kings fall down, Where the blood is stone, And your soul is fire, Where the hope is dead, and death is life. Rivers of wisdom, Across the caves of madness, In solitude with the rotten humanity. Immensity at the end of the tunnel, Where the empires become lost (crumble), Where the blood is stone, And your soul is fire, Where the hope is dead, and death is life. Descend in brighten flames, Descend through the empyrean veil, As the morning star, Descend!! Descend!! and face Thyrant!!
