The Mad Barron
A four song masterpiece. I cannot really choose a favorite for they are all glorious and powerful. Press play and let the Wolves In The Throne Room consume you.
Favorite track: Crystal Ammunition.
Black Cascade is characterized by a heavy and powerful analog sound, and a deft touch with songwriting and arrangement. The crumbling roar of decidedly old-school tube amps unite with layers of mossy analog synthesizer and cataclysmic percussion. Blazing and crystalline metal riffs slowly collapse and shift into ritualistic dirges that invoke endless rain falling upon the ancient cedars of the Pacific Northwest.
