Brutal Assault adds nine more bands

Discovering new bands is part of the metal festival draw. Today's announcement from the Czech Republic is sure to have at least one band you've never seen or heard before that will become a favorite come August. The new additions to 2020 Brutal Assault include Baest, Birds In Row, Brutus (the Belgium band--not to be confused with the other bands with the same name), Gatecreeper, God Mother, Lost Society, Vitriol, Vola, and Wolves In The Throne Room.

Bæst is one the most exciting live acts in death metal these days. Their performances at Copenhell over the past several years have created many fans.

I'm most interested in seeing Wolves In The Throne Room, but I'm looking forward to getting to know some of these other bands--especially Vola and God Mother--before they hit the stage at Fortress Josefov. More...

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!”

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...
