CORONER picture
Coroner was a Swiss technical thrash metal band from Zurich. They garnered relatively little attention outside of Europe. They combined elements of thrash, progressive rock, jazz, and industrial metal with suitably gruff vocals that have put them at times in a death metal camp. They did not completely fall into any of those categories but integrated influences from them while some defined their style. With their increasingly complex style of progressive rock-infused thrash, they are often labeled as "the Rush of thrash metal" by music critics.

Coroner were originally the roadcrew for Celtic Frost. They eventually formed their own group, recording their demo Death Cult in 1986 with Tom G. Warrior of Celtic Frost on vocals. Their first full-length album R.I.P., released in 1987, featured bass player Ron Broder on vocals and he assumed the role for the rest of the group's existence.

The group released several albums through 1993,

CORONER R.I.P.

Album · 1987 · Technical Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"R.I.P." is the debut full-length studio album by Swiss thrash metal act Coroner. The album was released through Noise Records in June 1987. The original vinyl version of the album featured 12 tracks while later CD versions feature the bonus track "Spiral Dream" (which features lyrics penned by Tom G. Warrior from Celtic Frost).

The music on "R.I.P." is relatively technical thrash metal. If you consider the time it was released and compare it to other thrash metal releases from 1987, it´s in fact a very technically well played thrash metal album. In many ways it´s a typical eighties European thrash metal release with aggressive raw vocals, a high energy level, cathy thrashy riffing and song titles like "Suicide Command" and "Fried Alive". However a closer examination of the music reveals a level of sophistication that not many of their contemporaries could muster. While the whole three-piece act are very well playing it´s guitarist Tommy T. Baron that stands out the most with his blistering guitar solos and occasional neo-classical leanings (check out the instrumental "Nosferatu"). There is a light fusion influence in the way the rhythm section play that´s pretty original for the time too.

"R.I.P." was produced by Harris Johns and Coroner and features a powerful and well sounding production that brings out the best in the tracks. If it hadn´t been for the more conventional sounding elements on the album "R.I.P." would have been a killer technical thrash metal release. I do feel the band should have avoided some of the most awkward tempo changes and thrash metal cliches if I should have rated the album with a full 4 star (80%) rating, so a 3.5 star (70%) rating is warranted. "R.I.P." was a very promising start to an artistically great career though.

CORONER Grin

Album · 1993 · Groove Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
On Coroner's final album, Grin, the band's perchant for the experimental is given free reign for one last time. The raw aggression of their early albums seems to be questioned here by the technically adept and rather cold approach they take. In fact, the regular use of spoken word samples and the early 1990s production aesthetic keeps making me think they're about to take the plunge and go full-on industrial metal, though they never quite do that - in fact, they never quite focus their approach sufficiently to clearly suggest a direction they could go in after this, which I guess might be part of the reason why they broke up.

I'd suggest making this the last Coroner album you try out, because it's eclectic to the point where it's doubtful you'll dig the entire album from beginning to end, but it's worth it to see them dabbling in all the different directions they might have taken the project had they resolved to pursue one of them above the others.

CORONER Mental Vortex

Album · 1991 · Technical Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
Coming down off their masterpiece (No More Color), Coroner's Mental Vortex feels to me like a bit of a step down. The band's chops are still tight, but there's points where their technical thrash metal style seems tired and worn out. In particular, the closing cover of the Beatles' I Want You (She's So Heavy) is drab and unimaginative, in stark contrast to previous covers of 1960s psychedelic classics by the band. Still, it's a competent enough album which offers an entertaining listen, but it isn't the world-changing experience No More Color was and suggests that the band's time was running short at this point.

CORONER Punishment for Decadence

Album · 1988 · Technical Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
A brief, aggressive outburst of thrash, Coroner's Punishment for Decadence takes a left-field turn at the end when the band wheel out a thrashed-up cover version of Purple Haze by the Jimi Hendrix Experience which succeeds in teasing out the proto-metal aspects of the song whilst remaining true both to the original tone of the song and the band's aggressive thrash stance. Ron Royce's vocals don't really match up to Jimi's original and are more suited to the muttered threats of the rest of the album, but otherwise it's a solid cover, though for the rest of the album the band seem to be treading water a little.

Warthur
A high quality technical thrash metal release which doesn't quite venture into the experimental territory Coroner would get into later in their career but does the job of establishing them as a credible force. A mild Hellhammer/Celtic Frost influence can be detected, particularly in Ron Royce's vocals - no surprise considering the band's origins as roadies for Tom G. Warrior's band of outlaws - but they do a decent enough job of carving out their own identity as the album progresses that this mild homage can be forgiven. Through the basic but acceptable production on the album Tommy T. Baron's lead guitar comes off the best, so fans of his playing definitely shouldn't pass this one up.
