Covenant of the Immortal” lyrically explores a dark theme and atmosphere of a haunted/cursed manor, with the song's protagonist desperate to escape his fate. This track blends old-school neoclassical metal ala King Diamond and the Shrapnel artists of the 80's with a huge and driving power metal chorus.

It is probably the most power metal influenced song we’ve done thus far. While we’ve explored power metal and neoclassical metal before, we’ve never done it to this extent. The middle section in particular has some very Shrapnel Records inspired neoclassicism in it." - co-lead guitarist Martin Bowman

"I really love how melodic "Covenant" is while at the same time maintaining a great sense of momentum courtesy of a driving main riff and lots of cool twists and turns, stops and starts. The solo section was a lot of fun to develop, and we knew we wanted to take some of the dual guitar sections that we included on the last record to the next level. I also really love some of the really theatrical vocals that Jake experimented with here, as it gives the song an eerie vibe that fits the music well." - co-lead guitarist Jason Schultz


Through the band’s inception in 2018 to the release of debut LP “The Sibylline Age” in 2022, IDOL THRONE has sought to blend Bay-Area Thrash, U.S. Power, and Progressive Metal into a unique sound to call its own. With the new album “A Clarion Call”, the quintet simultaneously hone and expand everything that made the debut work special, while evolving the boundaries of what the band is and can be. IDOL THRONE takes the listener on a sonic journey across 8 diverse tracks, from aggressive, pummeling thrashers and haunting neoclassical excursions to grandiose and powerful multi-part epics and progressive-rock inflected soundscapes. “A Clarion Call” is the sound of a band firing on all cylinders and ready to truly break out onto the scene.


Don’t miss IDOL THRONE on stage! The band will play on May 17th at the LiveWire Lounge in Chicago in company of Bloodletter and Exmortus! FB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/734879475399786
