Belgian atmospheric progressive/doom metal band THURISAZ and their label Sleaszy Rider Records (home of Motörhead among others) have set January 24th of 2015 as release-date for their new upcoming CD/DVD entitled ‘Thurisaz: Live & Acoustic’. The cover artwork and track listing can be seen below.
The song ‘Years of Silence’ is now available on Youtube. It was originally released in 2004 as part of the ‘Scent of a Dream’ album.
The band has the following to say about ‘Years Of Silence’: “Years of Silence has been created more than a decade ago, but we only played it live a few times. It was one of the first songs we knew we had to include on the setlist, because a lot of fans worldwide tell us that it is still one of their favorite songs.”
