Arkansas’ PANTHEON released their debut album Age of Wolves during July 2020 via Necrotic Records. Playing old-school blackened death thrash metal with groove elements, the band has quickly secured a diehard following, breaking the trends in their local Mid-South and Mid-West metal scenes.
Preparing to take on new metal fans beyond their American shores, PANTHEON is excited to announce the vinyl release of their first full-length for Europe via Dutch label Doc Records and for South America via Brazilian label Old Shadows Records. The vinyl will also be available in North America via Necrotic Records. The vinyl features two exclusive bonus tracks “Arcane Oath” and the band’s cover of BLACK SABBATH‘s “Hand of Doom“.
In lead up to the vinyl’s release on May 27th, the band is sharing a new lyrics video for the album’s title track, which can be heard below.
The band adds about the vinyl:
“Age of Wolves is an intricate merging of heavier, mid-paced poundage with the older, fast-paced death/thrash character. Its old school styles will feel familiar and nostalgic to veteran metal fans, but does it in such a way that it feels new and fresh.”
