Focusing on creating an inspiring, yet unsettling experience for the listener, Thanatos, brings brutal and technical groove to your ears. Created by Ian Waye, Thanatos is a one-man project, coalesced as a method of metaphorical storytelling and a means to culminate the riffs, melodies, and licks crafted through years of composition, some ideas dating back to 2012.
Unleashing his latest single “Shores of Styx”, the track completes the release of his debut self-titled EP by following his previous discharged shredders over these last few months.
For fans of Necrophagist, Beyond Creation and Psycroptic, Thanatos’ debut EP was recorded, mixed and mastered by Ian Waye.
Waye expands on how he wants his listeners to react:
It should floor them. The aim of Thanatos is to instill a deep desire to develop oneself and master your arts. The lyrics speak to this and the instrumentation of cultivated with meticulous care. The music represents an apotheosis, achieved through a commitment to being the best musician possible and the lyrics embody this.
