Wolves in the Throne Room: Primordial Arcana Review

The gods of nature-metal's 7th further feels like being lost in a dark forest, surrounded by trees covered in twisting shadows. It oozes black down the trunk and into the roots. It climbs outward and engulfs all willing to take the journey. Yes, Primordial Arcana feels like a religious experience and will leave you feeling unclean.

The artistry alone makes this one of the strongest releases of the calendar, but being one of the most intelligent pieces of music available right now just further cements this as a must-own.
