USURPER'S blend of 80's inspired thrash metal, classic heavy metal anthems, over-the-top chaos and hints of dark, melodic atmosphere have been a trademark of the band since day one. USURPER doesn't preach any political/religious ideologies, or sing about any socially relevant topics.
Topics such as: werewolfs, monster folklore, alien invasions, ancient civilizations, ancient battles, cryptozoological creatures, hauntings, prophecies, time travel, and the paranormal are the essence of Usurper's words, which when combined with the music, and artwork create a strange fantasy world of dark heavy metal horror.
