Twilight Of The Gods

Heavy Metal - Ireland / Norway / Sweden / United Kingdom

Twilight Of The Gods Band

Heavy Metal is more than just music. Metal is a lifestyle, a state of mind, a passion that never leaves those who get hooked. Out of this burning love for the sound of steel, classic riffs and pounding melodies TWILIGHT OF THE GODS was born. In the year 2010 the protagonists gathered to pay tribute to one of their main influences: BATHORY. The band even took its name from the sixth album of the Swedish legend and performed BATHORY cover shows. Yet soon the involved musicians felt that they shared similar tastes and were all raised in Metal by bands such as JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, MANOWAR, and other classics of the 80’s. It was only a question of time until the critical mass of creativity sparked new songs. TWILIGHT OF THE GODS grew from a cover project into a real band and in 2012 their debut album “Fire on the Mountain” was recorded. The line-up consists of experienced veterans of the Metal scene: PRIMORDIAL frontman Alan Averill aka Nemtheanga is joined by guitarists Patrik Lindgren from THYRFING and Rune Eriksen of AURA NOIR, ex-AVA INFERI and ex-MAYHEM fame. The rhythm section consists of EINHERJER mastermind Frode Glesnes on bass and drum wizard Nick Barker (LOCKUP, ex-CRADLE OF FILTH, ex-DIMMU BORGIR, ex-TESTAMENT). These celebrated musicians have created an album that speaks volumes about their sheer enthusiasm for Heavy Metal. “Fire on the Mountain” reflects the joy of its making and a deep respect for the bands that inspired its sound. TWILIGHT OF THE GODS is for those that love, live and breathe Metal. Bang your heads and raise your fists!
