Thornafire, like Apophis, is a band that I discovered a could not believe that more people were not listening to them. The Chilean death metal band has a terrific modern take on old-school death metal. Sounding like a cross between Death, Immolation, and Morbid Angel, but without sounding like they are trying to be a retro death metal band, Thornafire just has a great grasp on the music. Their latest album is in Spanish which does hurt the band just a little bit, but they should still be sought out.
FAVORITE ALBUM: EXACERBATED GNOSTIC MANIFESTATION
