All-Acoustic Set coming up in Perth! 

Claim The Throne will be playing our first all-acoustic set in 7 years, as we join Silent Knight for a special show in Perth where they will perform cover songs and rarely played deep cuts from their full discography.

Schnitzels, Steins & Steel is a very special event for the Perth Heavy Metal community to come together and share a long table communal dining experience with each other whilst enjoying German beer hall vibes with a specially selected menu of food & beers, live music from 2 of Perth’s most popular acts, a DJ from Critical Mass playing all your favourite songs; but not so loud that you can’t have a conversation and some fun and games with some wonderful hosts including Amos Feeds.

Limited to 100 tickets only, half already gone, don't snooze on this!

New song out now! All sales to Perth Bush Fire Relief 


In February 2021, the Eastern Hills areas of Perth, Western Australia, were ravaged by a fierce bushfire that took the homes of many unfortunate people, devastating their lives. 

One such victim was interviewed by media donning a Claim The Throne shirt. Surrounded by his family and chooks, he described the harrowing details of what was lost and just how dangerous the blaze was. 

Immediately we began thinking of ways the metal community could help to provide relief for those whose lives were impacted by the bushfires, and settled on the the idea to re-work an unrecorded song from the On Desolate Plains era. Firestorm is purely for release on Bandcamp with 100% of sales being committed to the cause. 

So please pay what you can afford - all proceeds will go towards bushfire relief funds to do our part to help. 

We do encourage you to donate directly to a bushfire relief fund, some options are below: 

West Gidge Volunteer Fire Brigade - 
Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund - 
Red Cross - 
Salvation Army - 
Native Animal Rescue - 
Volunteer Hardship Assistance Scheme -

Claim The Throne back on stage! 

Claim The Throne have announced their first live show in 3 years at this year's Perth SLAYFEST!

After a sell-out event in Perth in September 2020, SLAYFEST heads south to FREMANTLE on SATURDAY 27 MARCH to serve up a west coast smorgasbord of WA MADE METAL in the open air surrounds of PORT BEACH GARDEN BAR and the historical confines of THE RAILWAY HOTEL. Featuring 21 bands of locally brewed brutality across 2 stages, plus Karaoke, Metal Militia DJ’s, Food Truck Tucker and head bangin’ vibes, Perth’s annual metalfest SLAYFEST is set to bring on another Kracken day for heavy music fans in the west. 

Ripping apart folk metal with a merciless assault, CLAIM THE THRONE are back to deliver their extreme take on melodies for fans of epic and brutal alike. 15 years ago CLAIM THE THRONE made their entrance to the Perth metal scene with a full length album and a fantasy novel to match, but what really caught people’s attention was the band’s live show that oozed with an Aussie party attitude and a strange style of metal that had yet to be seen within Australian shores, going on to release highly acclaimed albums, regular worldwide touring and festival appearances in the UK, Europe, Asia, USA and Canada.
