about

Throne of Anguish is a multi-genre band from South Carolina, helmed by J. Daniel Edenfield. "Defiant Gifts of Torment" is death metal, with heavy influences of thrash and black metal, as well. At one moment the album is oppressive and malevolent, the next instant, it is a devastatingly brutal, sometimes visceral assault. "Defiant Gifts..." is also the first Throne of Anguish album to feature a new vocalist, J. D. Cadden.
Throne of Anguish began circa 2001 as a black/doom/gothic metal project. Through years of evolution, Throne of Anguish began exploring other stylings of extreme music, while maintaining it's metal foundation; from industrial and EDM to death and black metal, and even it's Classical Dark Ambient albums released annually in October).

Track Name: Realm of Disease
Unleash the tyrants of hate, we are malevolence
Unhinging heaven's gate, all hail defiance
All curses rendered, all blessings wrought
Infernal meanings, those seldom taught

Descend into our realm of disease,
And gaze upon all the blasphemies!
And burn up offerings, the clouded pall of sin
Defiant gifts of torment, to raise the damning stench

Adorn the altars in blood, and paste with feculence
Carving out the meek, to replace with insolence
Splayed before our idols, the feasting has begun
Draped in the blood of saints, we are Abomination!

No mercy for the weak!
No solace for the meek!
No quarter will be shown!
No prayers of comfort...
As we feast upon their blood!


...and fear of you, and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth...
...every moving thing and every living thing shall be meat for you...
And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of man; at the hand of man's brother, will I require the life of man.
For whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man, shall his blood...
Shall be shed!
Track Name: Tomb of Evil
Monoliths of blackness and ebon stone
Wrought in the ages of iron and blood
This temple found on ancient soil
Washed away on the tides of time

Tomb of evil; ancient ones
Forbidden Arts that I have sought
Black sorcery of demon's kind
I will be a king by strength and might

Resting upon a desert mount
In a tainted land; unhallowed ground
Tho' demons fought and many lives claimed,
Their blood is used, to open the gates


Traverse the tunnels, shrines of warriors lost
Littered bones caked in dust
Adorned with weapons, with jewels encrust
I take the scepter, recite incantations

Resting upon a desert mount
In a tainted land; unhallowed ground
Tho' demons fought and many lives claimed,
Their blood is used, to open the gates

A secret ritual of kings long gone
I've travelled far into this realm;
None before me yet I herald one,
By my might, my kingdom; this ritual of blood!

Tomb of evil; ancient ones
Forbidden Arts that I have sought
Black sorcery of demon's kind
I will be a king by strength and might
Track Name: The Feasting
Extinction protocols
The genocide of man
A slaughter, of mass proportions,
And emptied carcasses

Behold the feasting... blasphemies given form
Behold the Rending... peeling flesh from bone
The hatred of blackest demons' souls
Consumption, mutilation, eviscerate the throngs

Perpetuate the slaughter,
Demons from times of old
Now summoned to the forefront
Of the battlegrounds
The enemies are slain
To which are then absorbed
To become one with them,
And join the demon hordes

Behold the feasting... blasphemies given form
Behold the Rending... peeling flesh from bone
The hatred of blackest demons' souls
Consumption, mutilation, eviscerate the throngs

Unleash the power!
Unchain the rage!
Feed the anger!
Consumed with hate!
Festering in your soul!
Unending pain from the hellish cold!

Behold the feasting... blasphemies given form
Behold the Rending... peeling flesh from bone
The hatred of blackest demons' souls
Consumption, mutilation, eviscerate the throngs

And now the desecration
Black mass, a hubris unfolds
Look with your eyes upon
The legions of the void
Extinction protocols
The genocide of man
A slaughter, of mass proportions,
And emptied carcasses
Track Name: Bound By Human Flesh
Putrefied remains, of an exhumed corpse
Given life again, through the rituals
The bodies sewn, with the silver threads
Resurrection rites, to raise the dead

Undead, they walk,
On flesh they feed
On life they stalk...
On humans feed
Forever walk, forever slaves
These undead legions, to do my bidding

And now they feed...
Preying on men...
To eat their flesh...
And rise again!

Raise the dead, by my own hands
To end this world, with the risen dead
Necromancer's spells, that I have read
Taken from this book, bound in human flesh

Undead, they walk,
On flesh they feed
On life they stalk...
On humans feed
Track Name: Born of the Void
Fear the Maskim, for they take your soul!
Fear the Watchers from the shadows
The hunters, they lie in wait
Watch the shadows, or your soul they'll take!

Seven gates they keep
Seven keys they hold
The seven watchers wait
Their black wings unfold

Born of the void, born out of Time
Of chaos old, apart from the world
But with the ancient keys, and evil texts,
They are summoned from the pits of hell

Across the seas of madness, through the forests dread
The spires of the Maskim rise; the sky impaled
Blanket with the clouds, and hidden in the sands
The temple rests among, the blasted lands


Their battle cry, warlords of hell
Blood to the bridle; the mighty felled
Bloodlust seething rage; undead minion swarms,
with eyes of furious gaze; a fury hell-borne

Fear the Maskim, for they take your soul!
Fear the Watchers from the shadows
The hunters, they lie in wait
Watch the shadows, or your soul they'll take!

Across the seas of madness, through the forests dread
The spires of the Maskim rise; the sky impaled
Blanket with the clouds, and hidden in the sands

The temple rests among, the blasted lands
Track Name: Taste of Corruption
The carcasses laid bare, like cattle before me
Consuming the life blood, imbibe mortality
Unto the recent fallen, I am their litany…
Devouring their essence, consume vitality

I call on the darkness, for my feeding
I taste corruption, the blasphemies
The weak, a beast of burden, like cattle are the meek
Taking essence from them; beg for sanctity

God is not the one to whom you must pray
Mine is the power of hell, to whom you fall this day!
An offering of flesh, my thrist to slake;
Upraise the chalice of blood; imbibe, exsanguinate
Languid, your soul bereft;
Mine, infernal; damnation - all that's left

Dessication is the banquet of my blasphemy
Only the strong will rise from this hellish feast
Partake of the fruits of disease,
And join the ranks of my hellish army

The carcasses laid bare, like cattle before me
Consuming the life blood, imbibe mortality
Unto the recent fallen, I am their litany…
Devouring their essence, consume vitality

I call on the darkness, for my feeding
I taste corruption, the blasphemies

Dessication is the banquet of my blasphemy
Only the strong will rise from this hellish feast
Partake of the fruits of disease,
And join the ranks of my hellish army
Track Name: Black Sun
Let blackness strike the day
And darkness sieze the light
Blast the holy beacons,
As we consume all life

Obscuring the divine, the black sun will rise

Eclipse the sun, eradicate the light
Sieze the pain, receive the Blight
Herald unholy seasons,
As we consume all life

Obscuring the divine, the black sun will rise

Punish weakness
Enslave the lame
Enflamed with hatred
Devour the lame
Absolve the wretched
Embrace the pain
Entwined in sorrow
To feed the damned

In shadow's veil, in serpent's coil
We feed on the sanctified and seek the Blight

Punish weakness
Enslave the lame
Enflamed with hatred
Devour the lame
Absolve the wretched
Embrace the pain
Entwined in sorrow
To feed the damned

Eclipsing the divine, the black sun will rise

Destroying the divine, the black sun will rise
Track Name: Leviathan
Iä! Iä! I call on thee
Iä! Iä! with blasphemy
Iä! Iä! god of the seas
Iä! Iä! serpent of the Deep

The dire seasons, when the time is right;
The altar set, under spell of night
Abominations shall be praised
We are the heralds to Baphomet!

Iä! Iä! I call on thee
Iä! Iä! with blasphemy
Iä! Iä! god of the seas
Iä! Iä! serpent of the Deep

An Elder God of ancient seas
Raise up the mourning, raise up the Beast
To hear the Call of Dagon's might
Cthulhu's grace; until that time
Iä! Iä! god of the seas
Iä! Iä! serpent of the Deep

I cry to Southern skies; offering of flesh
Call the Watcher's Sign, and spell to set

Iä! Iä! I call on thee
Iä! Iä! with blasphemy
Iä! Iä! god of the seas
Iä! Iä! serpent of the Deep

Iä! Iä! I call on thee
Iä! Iä! with blasphemy
Iä! Iä! god of the seas
Iä! Iä! Leviathan!

Encircled Magick; priests of the Flame
The Eye of Madness; Open the gate!
An Elder God, of ancient seas
Raise up the mourning, raise up the Beast

Iä!

Book of the Shadows and of the Shells
From oceans' depths, a soaken Hell
An Elder God, of ancient seas
Raise up the mourning, raise up the Beast

Iä!

Iä! Iä! god of the seas
Iä! Iä! serpent of the Deep
Raise the Beast!
Leviathan!
Track Name: The Time of Rending
The Time of Rending!
Watch the kingdoms burn!
Witness the ending!
Unto the Demons we burn!

Entrance the Nether!
The prophecies fulfilled!
And the world burns forever,
Consumed in evil!

The battle cry of the demon hordes;
Blood to the bridle, the massacre is borne!

Consumed in flame
The Rising Star
Mankind eclipsed
Behold the Black Sun!
Iniquities, black magicks won
Humanity now becomes undone!

The Time of Rending!
Watch the kingdoms burn!
Witness the ending!
Unto the Demons we burn!
