TRONOS commented about their debut album,”We are beyond thrilled that Century Media Records have taken onboard TRONOS. It’s been a labour of love for us over the past few years now and we are excited to see what the reaction will be out there amongst the Metal Fraternity! We hope that you will find something of a reward deep within the labyrinth.“
The album, “Celestial Mechanics“ features a string of illustrious guests appearances: Denis ‘Snake’ Belanger (Voivod / vocals), Erica Nockalls (The Wonder Stuff / vocals & violin) as well as no fewer than three legendary bass players, Billy Gould (Faith No More), Troy Sanders and Dan Lilker (Nuclear Assault, S.O.D.). Also featuring the Black Sabbath cover version “Johnny Blade“ as final album track, the album was mixed by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost, Solstafir, Paradise Lost, Ulver) as well as Russ Russell.
The song, “Birth Womb” is a new release from the album. One fan shared commented, “Totally and utterly flawless! Anyone who is saying different should tidy up their lego and go to bed before Mummy gets angry.”
The band states, “This song talks about sacrifice, betrayal of emotion and the process of feeling temporary defeat. But in experiencing these feelings you realise that you can be a stronger person for the experience, the knowledge that maybe you are not unique and we are all dealing with our personal trials on a day-to-day basis.”
Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost, Ulver) mixed the album alongside Russell. Pre-orders for the record are available.
