Way to go NPR.

Jessica's back, which I love. She was sorely missed on the last album for me. Overall the track is really nice, imo. Of course it's a kind of breather-piece. Similar to Dia Artio. Though I think this track manages to occupy a much eerier space than the earlier "interludes". This could probably be brought down to just the guitar-production, which I think is pretty much perfect.

It's going to be really interesting seeing how the full album turns out. As this doesn't really give any sense what the rest will sound like.

Definitely think that it sounds great production wise, but then again, WittR always do.

It's their best album.

The album as a whole is more experimental. There is a lot of synth and electronic stuff going on.

Also, the first half of the third track sounds EXACTLY like Emperor. I'm not exaggerating, it could have easily come off of In The Nightside Eclipse and no one would have thought it out of place.

ehh, really? Not sure about this one now. Anticipating goodness but not being "their best album."

It's not overbearing or anything. They aren't a symphonic metal band now; it still sounds like WITTR. Just different.

And WITTR doesn't rip off people any more than every black metal band. People give them shit for it because they're famous.

Obviously I haven't heard that Emperor-esque track, so I can't comment on that. But I still think that the people that say they are a complete ripoff of Weakling need to get their ears checked or to get a massive hipster-hater reduction.

Too lazy to quote both of you but since they are popular like ER said wouldnt that make hating them the hipster way rather than hipster hate as RZ put it.

Seriously. Aside from like 2 riffs, WITTR are completely different from Weakling.

Finally listened. This is a very odd choice of the first song to release... how is that supposed to represent or get you excited for the rest of it? You can tell it's more of a transition/break kind of thing.

That's basically why I didn't have anything to say in this thread. Will be looking forward to the full album.

30 second samples are up now.

Just to let you guys know though, this tracklist is completely fucked up. The first track here is actually the last track of the album, and every other song is shifted back one. So track 2 is actually track 1, 3 is 2, etc...

lol 30 second samples for Wolves in the Throne Room.

It also says Woodland Cathedral is only 1:30.

So yeah... I guess I feel the same way about these amazon samples as I did about the first song. 30 seconds really isn't enough to get excited over. Well, with these particular clips at least. However, that little snippet of Prayer of Transformation was pretty bad ass. Don't mean to be down on Wolves or anything, I'm still psyched for it.
