Finland's THAUROROD will release their new album, Anteinferno, in Europe on December 20 through NoiseArt Records and will be available as CD and download. In Japan, the record is due on December 11 via Spiritual Beast featuring an exclusive bonus track called 'Japskin Syylä'.
The cover artwork for Anteinferno has been taken care of by Ken Kelly of MANOWAR fame. "I found this masterpiece with all the strong colors of the flames and a warrior on a horse and thought it would fit perfectly," explains bassist Pasi Tanskanen, "but also would reflect the battle themes and the theme of the last song which is about the world's biggest horse breed, the Shire horse, which was used in medieval battles ages ago. So I would say it's a pretty perfect cover for this album!"
