Black Death

Lose Yourself in the Blackened Funeral Doom of the MAMMON’S THRONE S/T Album Full Stream

Some music is meant to uplift your spirit, and some music is meant to suck all joy from your soul. With their melancholy riffs, vengeful blastbeats, and grueling vocals, Mammon’s Throne will leave you bereft of hope and devoid of delight. And that’s exactly what I want from blackened sludge-tainted funeral doom, to feel as if I’m being bulldozed by grief as my energetic body is fed into a black hole of despair. Their upcoming album Mammon’s Throne comes out on April 1st via Brilliant Emperor — pre-order it here. Today we’re premiering it in full, so listen to it below and enjoy!

We began writing ‘Mammon’s Throne’ in the midst of the Covid maelstrom. We channeled our emotions of anguish and dejection that had been festering through the multiple hardships brought upon the music industry into 4 venomous tracks (Impure was written during the Forward Unto Flame sessions).

This self-titled sophomore album boasts a darker, death-doom laden sound while still containing the traditional elements of Mammon’s Throne, that being haunting melodies and a multitude of vocal styles to create a dreary and spectral atmosphere.

We were adventurous with this album and included the acoustic dirge ‘’A King’s Last Lament’ which is a first for us. It features a piano, mellotron, classical guitar and analog synths. We felt that a stripped down, rich soundscape was the best way to tell the story of a leader in their dystopian, forlorn kingdom. This leader being representative of humanity and its vices only lamenting and feeling remorse once all hope is swept away. This is the central theme that the album explores.
