Coroner is a Swiss thrash metal band from Zürich.
They formed in 1983, the band broke up in 1996, but reformed 14 years later. Coroner has performed at multiple live venues and festivals around the world since 2011, and plans to release a new album in 2017. Their music combines elements of thrash, classical music, avant-garde music, progressive rock, jazz, and industrial metal with suitably gruff vocals. With their increasingly complex style of progressive rock-infused thrash, they have been called “the Rush of thrash metal”. Coroner’s sound then progressed and the production became more refined, resulting in the more progressive ‘No More Color’, ‘Mental Vortex’ and ‘Grin’ albums.
