Revolver has teamed with Wolves in the Throne Room for a limited-edition splatter vinyl variant of Primordial Arcana. Quantities are limited, so order yours now before they're gone!
Wolves in the Throne Room have emerged from the wilderness with a new black-metal opus called Primordial Arcana.The Olympia, Washington, unit's seventh album will arrive later this summer, but today they're previewing what's to come with a new single called "Mountain Magick."
Crafted in the middle of the Pacific Northwest woods, Primordial Arcana is the band's first album that they wrote, recorded, produced and mixed entirely by themselves. Taking a leap of independence like that doesn't always bode well for bands, but "Mountain Magick" is proof that the gambit worked. The song sounds just as lush, beautiful and intense as anything WITTR have ever made.
Its accompanying video features scenes of gurgling rivers, flaming timber and a medieval sorcerer traversing idyllic mountain ranges. In other words, it's black metal as hell. Check it out above via YouTube.
"Mountain Magick was shot in the northern reaches of the Olympic Mountains and the ancient forests that shroud the foothills," the band commented. "We wrote the story, created the costumes, shot the footage and did the editing ourselves, so it is a true product of our hearts and souls."
Primordial Arcana is set to arrive in full on August 20th via Relapse Records in North America and Century Media in Europe. Revolver has has it available for pre-order now in a gorgeous "translucent gold with brown, oxblood and olive green splatter" vinyl edition. It's limited to just 250 worldwide, so order yours now before they're gone!
