Thulcandra

Thulcandra was founded in 2003 by Steffen Kummerer (Obscura) and Juergen Zintz. inspired by the music of Dissection and Unanimated, the founding members followed the path first explored by the Swedish masters of blackened death metal. By 2004, the band's first demo was recorded and the preparations for the first studio album were in full swing.

Thulcandra was founded in 2003 by Steffen Kummerer (Obscura) and Juergen Zintz. inspired by the music of Dissection and Unanimated, the founding members followed the path first explored by the Swedish masters of blackened death metal. By 2004, the band's first demo was recorded and the preparations for the first studio album were in full swing.

But dark days fell upon Thulcandra. in early 2005, Juergen Zintz, plagued by years of battling his personal demons, committed suicide. The tragic incident naturally brought the band to an abrupt halt. as time passed, however, remaining member Steffen Kummerer reworked the material and began writing new songs for the highly anticipated debut.

Yet it wasn't until a couple of years later when the evil twins Tobias and Sebastian Ludwig (known for their guitar and bass duties in the german pagan metal band Helfahrt) joined forces with Kummerer that Thulcandra was truly revived. With seraph of the mighty Dark Fortress stepping in as a session drummer, Thulcandra could finally move forward to record "Fallen Angel's Dominion", which' saw its release in June 2010 via Napalm Records.

The band's second album, Under A Frozen Sun, is set to be released on September 28th.

The entire band is deeply rooted in the infamous sound of Sweden's black death metal, which combines scorching riffs, anthemic melodies, delicate solos supported by driving drums, and intense vocal renditions. Thulcandra is able to find a balance between ice-cold heaviness and melodic appeal. The uncompromising tracks reveal myriad hidden details without ever losing a beat. "Under a Frozen Sun" upholds tradition by once again relying on the production expertise of V. Santura (Woodshed Studios) and artistic mastery of the legendary Kristian "Necrolord" W√•hlin. « hide
