Pacific Northwest atmospheric black metal titans Wolves in the Throne Room are still two months away from unveiling their majestic new LP Primordial Arcana, but Decibel readers won’t have to wait until August to get the full story on WITTR’s Relapse debut. The band’s return to the cover of Decibel is the centerpiece of a USBM-heavy issue, which also includes a Hall of Fame induction on Nachtmystium‘s 2006 breakthrough Instinct: Decay as well as never-before-heard track from the Instinct: Decay studio sessions titled “Chemical Catharsis,” now available as part of the Decibel Flexi Series over 15 years after its recording.
There are a limited number of copies of our August 2021 issue available now in the Decibel webstore. If that isn’t enough to douse your black metal fire, grab a copy of our authoritative history of North American black metal metal, USBM, and our special priced black metal issue bundle. Saving ist krieg.
