Mirrorthrone biography
MIRRORTHRONE is a experimental metal band from Montreux, Switzerland formed in June of 2000 by Vladimir who decided to write a more eclectic and symphonic music then he used to in his other musical projects.

Two demo CDs were recorded in February of 2001 and in December of 2002 which drew the attention of Red Stream Inc who released their debut album "Of Wind and Weeping" in May of 2003. "Of Wind and Weeping" is a collection of early recordings and demo tracks. The CD received enthusiastic support from the press and fans worldwide. It's a mixture of radical Romantic and Baroque based compositions incorporating an extreme metal pace.

In 2006, MIRRORTHRONE released "Carriers of Dust." Building on his earlier recordings "Carriers of Dust" shows a much more progressive approach to composition and more diversity, better production, and was instrumental in the development of the project.

In 2008, MIRRORTHRONE released their third studio effort "Gangrene."

MIRRORTHRONE is a very interesting experimental band exploring Romantic and Baroque themes, progressive elements and extreme metal. Lyrics often switch between English and French as much the musical themes. It's heavy, powerful, hateful and emotional. They were approved by the Prog Metal Team and are very highly recommended.

Mirrorthrone Experimental/Post Metal

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars "Of Wind and Weeping" is the debut full-length studio album by Swiss black metal act Mirrorthrone. The album was released through Red Stream, Inc. in May 2003. Mirrorthrone is a one-man act consisting of Vladimir Cochet who handles vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards and drum programming. The material on the album was recorded at Vladimir Cochetīs home between 2001 and 2003. Most of the tracks (6 out of 8) were released on the "Promo December 2002" promo, which was limited to 100 copies and only distributed to labels. Vladimir Cochet also releases albums under the Weeping Birth and Unholy Matrimony monickers.

The music on the album is symphonic and quite epic black metal. The song structures are progressive with multible sections. The music is synth heavy and often the synths emulate a classical orchestra (albeit with a more synthetic sound). There is generally a very strong influence from classical music on the album. Itīs obvious that Vladimir Cochet is a very talented composer and musician and he handles both clean and raspy singing in great style and in addition to that he also handles both bass, guitar and keyboards on a pretty high level. Therefore itīs a bit of a shame that his drum programming isnīt up to par with the rest of the quality elements on "Of Wind and Weeping". I can live with the programming style, which is pretty decent, but I canīt live with the thin, artificial and soulless drum sound on the album. When I try and block out the drums the music sounds pretty good even though itīs more ambient in style, but then the out of place and rather awful sounding drums return and Iīm left with a feeling that one element destroys my listening experience.

So the fact that I still want to hand out a 3 star rating to an album where one of the instruments really distract me, should be a testimony to how well composed and well performed the rest of the album is. Iīm intrigued and at times impressed but not fully content.
