Wolves In The Throne Room Posts New Song

We are now a mere weeks away from the release of the sixth Wolves In The Throne Room LP "Thrice Woven," and today another track from the 5-track collection has been revealed. “Mother Owl, Father Ocean” offers a lull from the album’s Cascadian black metal lean thanks to a lush wall of ambient noise and gauzy vocals from Norwegian singer Anna von Hausswolff.

The band comments: “Making music with Anna Von Hausswolff was a true gift. When I close my eyes and listen to Anna’s Voice I see the cold grey oceans of the north. It reminds me of the saltwater near my beloved home, and the cold oceans everywhere. Hail to the Icy Waters of this Earth! Hail Anna!”

New album "Thrice Woven" will be released on September 22nd via the band’s own label, Artemisia Records. Catch Wolves In The Throne Room on the road in North America with Pillorian this fall:

Wolves In The Throne Room Details "Thrice Woven"

Wolves in the Throne Room re-imagines black metal as an ode to rain storms, wood smoke and the wild energies of the Pacific Northwest. The band is considered one of the most potent and highly regarded in heavy metal today. Now, a portal into the mythic ethereal heathen landscape opens once again as on August 23rd the new album "Thrice Woven" will unleash on the band's own Artemisia Records. The release is a glorious return to the blazing and furious black betal that the band alone can create.

The album begins with "Born From the Serpent’s Eye" a true thrashing black metal epic that is bisected with a haunting northern lament sung by Swedish star Anna von Hausswolff. The band worked with metal documentarians Peter Beste and Nico Poalillo to create a video for this track which captures a bonfire-lit performance in the forest near their Olympia compound. More on this very soon; to tide us over, check out a trailer that hints at what's to come in the player below.

"The Old Ones Are With Us" opens with the crackling of a fire and the voice of Steve Von Till (Neurosis) invoking the springtime thaw. It then storms into a dirge inspired by 90’s Finnish doom with lyrics that celebrate Imbolc, the holy day which marks the end of winter and the first stirrings of spring. Figures from Norse mythology intertwine with personal heartbreak and rebirth in the bleak "Angrboda." The song is named after a frost giantess who birthed Fenrir Wolf, a beast who was destined to destroy the world and murder the gods.

Fenrir Wolf also appears on the cover of "Thrice Woven" in a painting by Russian occult artist Denis Forkas. Forkas’ obscure medieval painting techniques perfectly compliment the music of Wolves in the Throne Room, you can explore the glimmering painting at the bottom of this post.

A raven’s wings stir the air in the interlude "Mother Owl, Father Ocean". Anna von Hausswolff returns in a duet with Turkish harpist Zeynep Oyku, forlorn industrial atmospheres haunt the mix, Hausswolff’s lyrics, sung in Swedish, echo over a barren grey seascape. "Fires Roar in the Palace of the Moon" is the classic Cascadian Black Metal epic, the third eye opens to see holy rivers being born from the ice on the tallest peaks, the lyrics offer blessings to the waters of the earth as they flow from the high places to the source of darkness, the ocean.

When the band returned to the road in summer 2016 long-time touring guitar player Kody Keyworth was welcomed as a full member of Wolves in the Throne Room. On "Thrice Woven," Kody contributes raven’s screams and some of the most brutal and dark riffs. The live line-up also features Peregrine Somerville (Sadhaka) playing 3rd guitar and Brittany McConnell (Wolvserpent) on keyboards and percussion. The effect of three guitars on stage is mesmerizing and reflects the dark psychedelia of the band’s albums.

The track listing is:

1. Born from the Serpent's Eye
2. The Old Ones Are With Us
3. Angrboda
4. Mother Owl, Father Ocean
5. Fires Roar in the Palace of the Moon More...

WITTR Re-Issuing "Diadem Of 12 Stars"

Pacific Northwest black metal clan Wolves In The Throne Room will proudly re-release 2006's debut album "Diadem Of 12 Stars" through the band's own Artemisia Records in mid-June. This release will precede the band's first East Coast North American dates in five years.

Written almost exclusively in a windowless, black room over the long dark nights of winter 2005, "Diadem Of 12 Stars" was the first official Wolves In The Throne Room release. Re-imagining black metal as an ode to rain storms, wood smoke and the wild energies of the Pacific Northwest, WITTR created a unique melancholic atmosphere.

Wolves In The Throne Room Streams Full Album

One week ahead of its looming release date next Tuesday, July 8th you can hear all of "Celestite," the new instrumental LP from Olympia, Washington's Wolves In The Throne Room. Listen to the tracks at NYTimes.com here.

"Celestite" is a fully synth-composed companion to the 2011-released "Celestial Lineage" LP, and is a far cry from the blackened maelstrom Wolves In The Throne Room typically delivers. Produced by Randall Dunn, the instrumental passages on "Celestite" reflect the tracks of its predecessor in a whole new light, with more than forty-five minutes of rich, otherworldly, synthesizer-constructed works which more resemble a sci-fi/horror soundtrack or meditative musical experience.

You can also see Wolves In The Throne Room live on these dates:

7/11/2014 Capital Theatre Backstage - Olympia, WA w/ Nommo Ogo, D A Terence
7/12/2014 Shakedown - Bellingham, WA w/ Nommo Ogo, A God Or Another
