Pantheon released “Age of Wolves” on vinyl

Playing old-school blackened death thrash metal with groove elements, Arkansas’ Pantheon unleashes the vinyl edition of their first full-length “Age of Wolves”. The vinyl is now available as of May 27th from Doc Records and Vidar Records for Europe, Old Shadows Records for South America, and Necrotic Records for North America, whom the band originally unleashed the debut album digitally and on CD during July 2020. The vinyl features two exclusive bonus tracks “Arcane Oath” and the band’s cover of Black Sabbath’s “Hand of Doom”.

The band adds about the vinyl:

“Age of Wolves is an intricate merging of heavier, mid-paced poundage with the older, fast-paced death/thrash character. Its old-school styles will feel familiar and nostalgic to veteran metal fans, but does it in such a way that it feels new and fresh. We wanted to give the fans a throwback to the glory days of death metal and give them something they can headbang to and enjoy.”

“Age of Wolves” is a high-energy, brutal, dual guitar and vocal assault ready to melt faces upon first listen. It’s recommended for fans of Dissection, Carcass, At The Gates, and Dying Fetus.
