Washington black metal duo Wolves in the Throne Room are back in the studio, recording their fourth release for Southern Lord Records. Little details have been revealed, but producer Randall Dunn is back and ready to top their prior two releases together, Two Hunters and Black Cascade.
Drummer Aaron Weaver had this to say about the new album:
“I got into a daily rhythm of greeting the weak winter sun in the morning, working outside in the rain until midday, then retiring to our studio to work on the music late into the night. I did this nearly every day for two months. Quite a monastic lifestyle, actually. I didn’t see many people. We were totally lost inside the record. Once the record was conceived from beginning to end, we met with Randall and started to slowly build the tracks at his studio in Seattle. I think that this album will be the best thing that Wolves in the Throne Room has created. We’ve never been able to devote this much time to writing and recording. It feels like this will be the culmination of everything we’ve done up to this point.”
