Mirrorthrone, what you might call an avant-garde/post-black metal band, was formed in 2000 by 1 sole member, Vladimir Cochet. Incorporating the crushing sounds of metal with classical piano, he created a unique project.MIRRORTHRONE GENRES
Hailing from Switzerland, he released 2 demos in 2001 and 2002, before finally releasing his debut full-length with Red Stream in 2003; Of Wind and Weeping, and just recently his 2nd full-length was issued - Carriers of Dust.
Vladimir Cochet also is/was involved with the projects Unholy Matrimony, Weeping Birth, Accurst Journey, and Deafening Loneliness.
Mirrorthrone has faced accusations of racism and nazism, to which Vladimir issued this statement on his website:
"This is an answer to the polemic which is current at the moment on the Internet. No, Mirrorthrone is NOT racist, nazi, white pride or whatever you call it. The lyrics of the song "A Scream to Express the Hate of a Race" target the human race in its entirety. It attacks what is called the "nihilism" of a certain form of society that has been spreading around the globe and that envelops the "moral, social, religious and scientific" paradigms. I am not going to develop more for my aim is not to offer text analysis of what I have written; I only want to clarify the situation. Please read and understand at least a minimum before commenting."
