THY ROW – Unchained (2021)

Helsinki, Finland’s THY ROW, which is helmed by Everfrost vocalist Mikael Salo will be releasing the debut album ”Unchained” on September 24th, 2021 via Rockshots Records. Thy Row offers up a fresh mix of old-school classic metal with modern hard rock, and a punchy production sound recalling the heaviest side of ECLIPSE.
However, musically THY ROW bring to mind PRETTY MAIDS, and their clever combination of heavy polished riffs with catchy melodies. From the tight rhythm feels to the big vocals, I am lost in this one.
This is the near perfect head-banger album, one that energetically combines metal heaviness and hard rocking groove. The kind of album that can get just about everyone up and moving. The riffs are frantic, the vocals are inspiring and the drums really add a ton of meat to the bones.
