Surprises In The Throne Room

Quick update on the WITTR news below- I just listened to the Malevolent Grain EP (can be found at all the usual spots).


The first song, A Looming Resonance, is not what I was expecting at all. Melodic, clean vocals throughout. Yes, there were those melodic female interludes on the previous releases, but not a whole song like this. Oddly enough it works.

Works even better when you get to the B-side and you realize it is (probably) a one-off and not a new direction. The second song, Hate Crystal, has all the rasped, atmospheric darkness we've come to know and love from these guys.

Psyched to hear/see how this new stuff works out live.
