Recorded during sessions scattered over various periods of time, "Grains" are not just another step forward for the already acclaimed band. The album divided into five pieces evolves in multiple directions. There is THAW's trademark take on black metal noise, there is drone, last but not least – there is the ability to conduct a unique narrative with music. Intensity combined with abandoning traditional structures make the new effort of one of the most forward-thinking bands an experience one of a kind. A distorted landscape where creation meets destruction perfectly painted.
"Grains" has been once again recorded and produced by THAW at Maq Records Studio and Satanic Audio. A cover painting made by Furia's Sars as well as appearances of Maciej Moruś (Mitch and Mitch, ex-Starzy Singers) and Stawrogin (Odraza) only add to the album's mystery and weird magnetis.
