Wolves in the Throne Room
Southern Lord's WITHR transport the icy bleakness of Scandinavian-style black metal to the lush, deep woods of their Olympia, WA, home. Whether it be self-created myth or just the imagery used, they love them some nature almost as much as they love Marshall stacks blasting ambient-leaning, blastbeat-driven, metallic noise: Allegedly they're staunch supporters of radical environmentalism and profess an eco-spiritual ethos. Black Cascade, their forthcoming new album, has only four tracks, but each one clocks in over 10 minutes allowing the maximum time needed for total darkness enshrouding. With A Storm of Light and Krallice.
