Tor Marrock is a three-piece band based in Aberystwythe, Wales. They formed in 2004 and fall under the dark, gothic, death, black concept metal umbrella. Previously, the band released a demo, “The Death of Summer”, in 2006 and their debut full length album, “A Gothic Romance”, in 2007. After a six year break, the band returns with their sophomore full length “Destroy the Soul”.
As a huge Type O Negative fan I must admit to being a little lost since the demise of Pete Steele and pretty much the disbandment of the band. Sal Abruscato is doing wonders with “A Pale Horse Named Death” but their sophomore album paled by comparison.
If you’re a fan of early Paradise Lost and Tiamat releases this may certainly be of interest to you. It’s a refreshing sound which manages to stray clear of much of the cliched formulas associated with the whole gothic genre.
This is “The Harbouring of Suicidal Thoughts” taken of this brilliant album “Destroy The Soul”.
