Formed in 1988, Threnody soon established an excellent reputation in the underground Metal scene. They are known for having no restrictions, stretching every mile, their musicality and solid live shows.
After releasing various tapes and a very well received debut album, their second album "Bewildering Thoughts", released by Massacre in 1995, is now considered a classic and a melodic Death Metal milestone. The album received critical acclaim and the video of "Dare Restrain", directed by Mike Redman was often seen on MTV. Threnody toured and shared stages with Metal giants like Sepultura, Fear Factory, Malevolent Creation, Paradise Lost and Death, to only name a few.

With the purchase of this vinyl record, you'll get the full download of the album for free!
