toner never went away. It might not be up in your grill all the time, but it’s an interesting and little-known fact at any given moment you’re never more that 100m from a man with a beard having a blaze and listening to Electric Wizard. Throne are here to ensure that spirit is kept as alive and well as ever. This London three-piece’s dense, doomy riffs and soaring double-tracked vocals draw upon the aforementioned Wizard, also harking back to the godfathers Sabbath and even the sandblasted scope of Blue Cheer, a take on the sound which has propelled them as far as SXSW. We’re all doomed.
