Band`s Ontology- Philosophy
In order for Thyrathen to reach the dramaturgical and the ritualistic atmosphere intended to, the band agreed with professional musicians, singers and actors who specifically performed: the ancient Lyre, and the ancient wind instruments (double reed pipes), along with: male choirs & psalms, tenor choirs, as well as with theatrical female narrations, soprano choirs, war cries etc.
Those five (5) independent artists constitute the “lyrical line-up” of the band, The musical, vocal, and choral parts have been applied and integrated in the band’s music, establishing therefore, an undivided -the “Lyrical”– part of the entire album’s nous and philosophy, which of course still remains under the unique “diachronic black metal” style of Thyrathen.
Lyrical line-up (Musicians, Singers, Actors & Performers)

The idea of the band was born in Larissa-Hellas in 1996 by Corax S. (Jackal’s Truth) & Stefanos Koutsomarkos (Jackal’s Truth, etc.), however, the material form took part for a first time in 2011. The recordings were never officially released. In the beginning of 2019 the band regathered, to write & compose the “Philosophical Chapter” and to re-write & re-compose their previous “Dionysian trilogy” under the name of “Mythistorical Chapter”, with the addition of A.Z. (Kawir, ex-Obsecration, etc.) and the later addition of Melanaegis (ex-Kawir, ex-Rotting Christ [live]). In the beginning of the pandemic period (Covid-19) both Stefanos & Melanaegis left the band. Meanwhile, Thyrathen moved on to a formal cooperation with its (5-membered) lyrical line-up, as well as, with: Alexandros (Macabre Omen, The One, Razor of Occam etc.), and Stefan Necroabyssious (Varathron, Katavasia, Zaratus, etc.), who both participated as the lead singers and the main narrators of the album.
