Wolves In The Throne Room - Thrice Woven
Wolves In The Throne Room re-imagined black metal as an ode to rain storms, wood smoke and the wild energies of the Pacific Northwest. Their first studio album, Diadem Of 12 Stars (2006), was a genre-dissolving classic that created a melancholy and psychedelic Cascadian atmosphere. Since that time they have become one of the most potent and highly regarded bands in extreme music. The listener encounters crystalline metal riffs that slowly collapse and shift into ritualistic laments, singing of endless rain falling upon ancient cedars. Their music is a doorway into a mythic ethereal heathen landscape entered through music, magic and dreams. Now, a portal into the dream world of the band opens again with Thrice Woven. It is a glorious return to the blazing and furious black metal that they alone can create! Guest vocal appearances from Steve Von Till (Neurosis) and Anna Von Hausswolff. Striking cover art from Russian occult artist Denis Forkas.
