Wolves in the Throne Room – “Black Cascade” Double LP
The third full-length studio album, last in the trilogy, released in 2009, by the ambient black metal band from Olympia, Washington. Essentially a conventional heavy metal album, with blast beats, plus the intermitent inclusion of some folk, goth and post-rock influences. And further infused with themes of mythology, environmentalism and the occult. Four tracks, 50 minutes, on four sides within a stylish and evocatively designed gatefold jacket.
