Astral blood pours forth from their grevious wounds



I am a huge fan of Wolves in the Throne Room's aesthetic. The ever-present nature imagery, combined with interludes of ambient, hazy white noise admidst the black metal torrent works for me. The whole package reminds me of the book "The World Without Us." In it, the author theorizes what would happen to our remains if, all of a sudden, every person on earth simply vanished. Almost immediately, nature begins to take over, destroying buildings, and ripping to shreds every trace that we were ever here, portraying our society as...a disruptive cancer. I feel like Wolves in the Throne Room would be at peace with that message: the all-destroying power of nature claiming what rightfully belongs to it.

You can pick up the album on the band's webpage, or at Amazon.
