Discography: 2015 - THURM (Album).
Undeniably vicious, this opening encounter with Thurm is bloody and menacing, but also well-intentioned and surprisingly thoughtful across its 7 tracks. A little more variation wouldn't go amiss in parts, but a truly engrossing listen nevertheless means that hopefully the German quartet are here to stay in the ever-growing blackened hardcore circle.
Der Thurm zu Babel (The Tower of Babel) is a one-act 'sacred opera' by Anton Rubinstein to a libretto by Julius Rosenberg based on the story in the Book of Genesis, chapter II. The opera was written in 1869 and had its first performance in Königsberg on 9 February 1870. The term 'sacred opera' (geistliche Oper in German) was invented by Rubinstein to denote staged works with "use of polyphonic choruses and a sober, edifying style relying on ‘exalted declamation’.
