Coroner is a technical thrash metal band comprised of former Celtic Frost roadies, formed in 1985. Even though they existed for a decade, and released six albums, they went largely under the radar of the main music press, instead being appreciated by more dedicated and underground fans of metal. They broke up in 1995 after completing their Farewell tour, releasing a compilation album and a collection of unreleased material. Coroner reunited in 2010.

Coroner were and are still my favorite european Thrash Metal Act!
In my eyes, even better than Kreator, they developed their own delicate kinda "Swiss-Progressive-Thrash"-Sound.
I will never forget songs like "masked Jackal" or timeless Masterpieces like the mental Vortex or the grin album! In a way like good bottle of wine, getting better with every year!
