Founded by guitarist Karl Groom in southern England in 1988, THRESHOLD were a unique proposition from the start. Driven forward by youthful confidence and verve, they swiftly became the UK’s premier purveyors of adventurous and progressive metal and have remained at the top of that tree for the best part of three decades. From early albums like Wounded Land (1993) and Psychedelicatessen (1994) to more recent triumphs like 2014’s acclaimed For The Journey and Legend of the Shires (2017), the band’s reputation has been built upon the sheer strength of their songwriting, collective chemistry and fervent disregard for following passing trends. As a result, THRESHOLD are as revered and respected as they have ever been.
THRESHOLD return with their 12th full length album ‘Dividing Lines‘, which is set to be released on 18th November via Nuclear Blast Records.
‘Dividing Lines‘ marks the second album since the return of former vocalist Glynn Morgan, who reunited with the band on their previous effort ‘Legends Of The Shires’ (2017). A darker album than ‘Legends Of The Shires’, the band have described it as “Legends’ darker, moodier older brother”.
