Wolves in the Throne Room Release Cascadia, their second full-length release .

“The deep woe inside black metal is about fear that we can never return to the
mythic, pastoral world that we crave on a deep subconscious level”

Grim and purifying black metal from the forests of Cascadia! The second full-length release (first for Southern Lord, the previous album on Vendlus Rec’s) from this powerful trio. An incredible amount of depth, power and conviction along with mature song-writing and incredible musicianship give them their own undeniably unique sound. The groups willingness to experiment with unconventional methods of recording and collaborate with avant-garde musicians sets them apart from the mundane normalcy that plagues many Black Metal albums as of late.

Two Hunters was recorded on tape, at London Bridge and Aleph Studio by Randall Dunn (Earth, sunn 0)))/Boris, Kinski) in the Pacific Northwest.. The process of the recording was very organic with very minimal use of any digital effects or manipulation. Jessica Kinney (previous collaborations with Eyvind Kang and Asva) provides beautifully dark vocals on “Cleansing” and “I Will Lay Down My Bones Among the Rocks and Roots.” The disc comes packaged in a 5″ mini-gatefold thick cardboard jacket. Wolves are also recording a bonus track for the LP version of the album coming later this year. Hear a sample of the new Wolves material on their Southern Lord press page:
