This is 54 minutes of ripping death/thrash. It’s not without its depth either, as the band incorporate some choice progressive tendencies in their sound too. This justifies the length of the album, as the songs take the time to explore where they need to, offering a substantial and engaging journey to the listener. Continue reading

Introduce us to Distant Sun!
Hey! We’re a power/thrash metal band from Moscow, Russia, but our drummer Eric comes from Ukraine. This style used to be called “speed metal” 20 years ago, so we might be a bit late with our music.
