American Black Metal OverlordsWOLVESIN THE THRONE ROOMreturn with a new EP,Crypt of Ancestral Knowledge. Featuring four new tracks spanning the scope ofWOLVESIN THE THRONE ROOM'scinematic black metal and dark acoustic folk, the EP also sees the band carry listeners through a journey of atmospheric industrial tracks and darker sonic territories.
The EP opens with “Beholden to Clan”, a blazing slab of Symphonic Black Metal. Guitarist Kody Keyworth comments, “Journeying high atop a sacred mountain, the song recalls the importance of the sacrificed king's cycle of rebirth through ancestral hallucinogenic rights of passage. It’s a wild trip. Hail Othila!” Elsewhere, “Twin Mouthed Spring” follows. This new track features vocals and acoustic guitar performed by foundingWOLVESIN THE THRONE ROOMdrummer Cedar Serpent who has recently returned to the live stage after a years long hiatus from live performance. He comments, “This song travels to a deep wellspring of passion and creativity. Themes from Celtic Mythology are pulled apart and remade.”
Side B of the EP features a different side of the enigmatic band; “Initiates of the White Hart”, an Atmospheric Industrial interpretation of “Spirit of Lightning”, takes this live-set stalwart into deeper dark psychedelic waters while “Crown of Stone”, a ritual dark ambient piece, connects thematically to “Mountain Magic” the lead track on 2021’sPrimordial Arcana."
