08-20-2013, 09:00 PM
Hey everyone, I play in a blackened death metal band called Grethor. Basically our style is a mix of early Dissection and At the Gates with a touch of Deathspell Omega, Immolation, and Emperor. We'd appreciate it if you guys listened to some of our shit and let us know what you think. We just released an EP which you folks can stream on our Bandcamp page (link below). There's also stuff from our back catalog on there as well. We hope you guys like it and thanks for checking us out!

“This whole album is awesome in just about every possible way especially for someone who is very judgmental about their black and death metal as I am, but “Cloaked in Decay” has my 100% approval because this is fan-fucking-tastic.”
— Headbanger Reviews

“GRETHOR’s sound is an amalgam of black and death metal bands, drawing direct comparisons with such luminaries as GORGUTS , DEATHSPELL OMEGA, and HUMAN REMAINS...their latest EP, Cloaked in Decay, is a brutal exercise in death metal with a blackened soul.”
-- Dominion Collective

“Overall, this album is completely solid and any fans of bleak, inventive, chaotic and fucking heavy black, death, doom or extreme metal are going to seriously enjoy this.”
-- The Metal Maiden

Cloaked in Decay out now! Available on CD, and for digital download via Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon MP3. Full stream available on Metal Underground: http://www.metalunderground.com/news/details.cfm?newsid=112690
