Our digital cover for issue 59 was graced by Wolves in the Throne Room. We spoke to the Washington-based masters of American black metal about their new record, Primordial Arcana.
“This feels like the beginning of a new era,” says drummer, bassist, and synth player Aaron Weaver in the interview. “Thrice Woven was kind of the end of a cycle musically for us. It’s as if we’ve tapped into a new spring of energy deep underground. This is also the first record we’ve produced ourselves entirely in our own studio in Olympia. It was a big challenge and a journey to accomplish it, but I think we definitely succeeded, and I’m incredibly proud of how the record sounds.”
