The band was founded 2002 and ever since there has been only one way for them and that´s up! Moving fast and knowing exactly what they want! They managed to be one of the Top 10 at a band contest which was held in Helsinki called „Ääni ja Vimma“ and reached the finals out of 200 participating competitors. Afterwards they released a 3-track EP as well as another one named „Morning Lake“ which became a huge success in Japan. In 2008 the band really took off to a higher level. Singer Markku Kuikka joined the band and from there on THAUROROD could finally focus on their songwriting and develop musically. „Epic symphonic metal“ as the band brand themselves! Founding member and leader of the band Emil Pohjalainen has been a guitar hero in early age already and improved his guitar playing ever since. His shredding and riffing is beyond anything you´ve heard and without any doubt one of the biggest THAUROROD trademarks! Musically influenced by big names such as SONATA ARCTICA, STRATOVARIOUS or DRAGONFORCE, the band never loses their own momentum and style but to play also on a very high level technically. Tremendous keyboard melodies melt together with Kuikka´s beautiful voice; amazing riffs and insanely good shredding plus godly melody lines let THAUROROD become the hottest newcomer in a long long time – they are the new shining star in power metal, that´s for sure!
„I think our music combines many different styles of metal music. The attitude is heroic and someone could call Thaurorod a power metal band, but there is more in the music. There´s a lot of things happening during a THAUROROD song, they literally come to life! We just love and need that creative freedom.“ Emil Pohjalainen, guitar
„Upon Haunted Battlefields“ was produced by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios and the amazing looking cover artwork was done by Ken Kelly, who already worked with big players such as KISS, MANOWAR as well as RAINBOW just to name a few.
„I think the coverart fit us better than a sombrero! Ken Kelly has done an amazing job on this, we absolutely love it! I guarantee the album is worth of buying even only because of the booklet, hahaa! No seriously, we think it is really outstanding, perfect! We are totally into those heroic tales, which of course are part of our whole concept and lyrics, too.“ Emil Pohjalainen
On September 24 their debut album will be released in Europe via NoiseArt Records and straight after the band embarks on an European run alongside SABATON. Early 2011 THAUROROD are already confirmed to play the so-called „Power Of Metal“ Tour supporting SYMPHONY X and NEVERMORE – a tour which couldn´t suit THAUROROD any better, not only from the title!
