Interview: Exalt the Throne
The other day, I did an interview with Christian brutal melodic metal band Exalt the Throne! Go and check them out!
TBD: Who am I speaking to?
ETT: Exalt the Throne! (answering collectively)
TBD: Could you give a quick background on the band?
ETT: The band formed in 2011 from former Benevolence and Conquered Flesh members. Originally it was a death metal band called Persecution Complex. Since then, it has had a few line-up changes, the most recent being the addition of Courtney on vocals in December. She was in the studio by January, and her first show was opening for Epica in February.
