A Province Of Thay are from Seattle. And there is not a grunge note in sight as the band are more of a progressive post-rock/post-metal combo with slight elements of Doom and Ambient lurking in the background. They released their stunning debut album – The Grieving – late last year. Trust me to be late in listening to such a fantastic and quality sounding album.
A Province Of Thay are different from your normal Post-Metal bands as they have written an intriguing story on The Grieving. It's an album packed full of many emotions that will tug at the hardest of emotionally distant heart strings. The band have struck the perfect balance between intense Post-Metal riffs and anthemic Post-Rock vibes that brings back memories of Mono when the band are in full flight.
The haunting vocals of lead vocalist Ronald gives this album pure HEART and SOUL. As his vocals drift from heavy rock vocals to soothing emotionally wrought vocals that wouldn’t go amiss from the legendary shoegaze scene. Ronald is on his element on the album's stand-out track – A Legacy In The Trees. An almost 10 minute track that will have your heart beat pumping 100 times faster. And your the more better for it after listening to it.
A Province Of Thay are incredible musicians as they have written an intricate 35 minute album that shows their undeniable talent to the world. The band believe in the art of progressive rock/metal as the album is built upon some highly impressive progressive based riffs.
It may end on an abrupt note but I think this is for the best as it means the band will most definitely be back with the next chapter of this highly intriguing story.
Look if you want something different to check out in the realm of Post-Metal. Something with brains, heart and an eternal soul then The Grieving is the album for you. It truly is a magical and mysterious album you won't forget in a long time.
