Thronar Biography

Last updated: 02/03/2007

Thronar plays battle metal: a mix of majestic, bombastic and melodic mid-tempo viking metal with heavy metal influence.

The beginning
Otto and Reamon (both guitars and vocals) started a band named Cerberus back in 1998. Their goal was to create music where bravery and bloodshed go hand in hand. In less than a year the whole band was formed and the preparations for the first demo began.

A journey must begin...
In 1999 Cerberus recorded their first demo-CD "A journey must begin" The "Journey demo" got good responses and the number of gigs grew fast

One man's Fate
Their second demo "One Mans Fate" was released in 2001. After the release things went upwards very fast, the demo sold very good and Cerberus performed in clubs all over Holland. Because of their striking live performance (blue warpaint, etc) and number of gigs, Cerberus's fame grew.

Change of name
In the Year after the release of "One mans fate" Cerberus noticed that they where often confused with other bands that carried the same name. So at 1 September Cerberus changed his name to Thronar.

For Death And Glory
In April 2005, the first full length of Thronar was released. The album contains nine unique songs. Four of them are taken from the Promo 2003 and have been rewritten and re-recorded. Together with five new songs, the warriors of Thronar prove that they are ready to begin their battle to conquer the world.
