Even thou IT plays melodic metal of death, their music isn’t meant to sound like this faceless mainstream genre, what melodeath has unfortunately become over the years. In guitar riffs you can hear the sound of mid 90?s melodeath mixed to their distinctive “blackish” expression.

Iliac Thorns self-released EP named Prevailing Shapes of Hell in winter 2012 and it received good feedback from media and the listeners and this lead to a decision to record a debut full-length album in co-operation with Inverse Records. Album, simply named IT, contains 8 songs of blackened melodeath which attacks the core of listeners like a ton of black sludge. The release date will be May 20th in Finland and June 26th in the rest of the world.
