Swiss technical thrash metal band formed in 1985, comprised of former Celtic Frost roadies.

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 reunioned in 2010. Daniel Stössel is live member of Coroner on samples and vocals.

Coroner deserves respect because they had their own specific character / attitude & style. Their studio sound production (especially on Mental Vortex & Grin) was one of the best I ve ever listened from European band in early / mid 90's. But we also deserve like fanatics, their 2-3 last albums in official repressed (but not remastered!!) vinyls.

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!
