Some members of IDOL THRONE had this to say about the new song:

Petrified” was born out of some riffs I was playing around with one night that ultimately became the intro and verses of the song. I developed it further into a full song and while the intention was originally to include it on a later release, we felt it was strong enough to add to the group of songs that we were working on for album 2. The lyrics are a tale about psychosis as a result of sleep paralysis and the vibe of the music reflects the different lyrical sections of the song." - co-lead guitarist Martin Bowman

"This song is a total burner, with an intense verse riff that doesn't let up! Aaron's drums are a real highlight of this song for me, as the entire affair is just a barrage of double kick and super tight accents throughout the chorus and heavy middle section. I'm really proud of the solos on this one as well, with mine being a real "going for it" moment on the record, followed by a super cool harmonized run and a massive outro chorus. I can't wait for our fans to hear this one! Short, sweet, and definitely intense!" - co-lead guitarist Jason Schultz

Through the band’s inception in 2018 to the release of debut LP “The Sibylline Age” in 2022, IDOL THRONE has sought to blend Bay-Area Thrash, U.S. Power, and Progressive Metal into a unique sound to call its own. With the new album “A Clarion Call”, the quintet simultaneously hone and expand everything that made the debut work special, while evolving the boundaries of what the band is and can be. IDOL THRONE takes the listener on a sonic journey across 8 diverse tracks, from aggressive, pummeling thrashers and haunting neoclassical excursions to grandiose and powerful multi-part epics and progressive-rock inflected soundscapes. “A Clarion Call” is the sound of a band firing on all cylinders and ready to truly break out onto the scene.
