Rated 3.94/5 (78.89%) (18 Votes)

Very much if the mold of their debut, Fallen Angel's Dominion, Thuncandra's sophomore album, Under a Frozen Sun, finds the band blast-beating and tremolo-picking their way through the dark realms of Black Metal. Singer Steffen Kummerer's tortured rasps again lead the way through the depths of despair. Thulcandra continue to feature a lot of melody in their songwriting and are not afraid to slow down the tempo to show that off. But for the most part the band just lets it rip and songs like "In Blood and Fire" and "Aeon of Darkness" literally wear you out with their sonic assaults.

Innovation is not the focus on Under a Frozen Sun, but music played this well doesn't necessarily need to be unique. Fans of Immortal and Melechesh should do themselves a favor and check out Under a Frozen Sun.
