The past 2 days I have woken up and almost immediately turned on the fascinating new EP from a band that is creeping up on my favorites list, Wild Throne. The sometimes informative yet always entertaining MetalSucks debuted ‘Bloodmaker’ on Wednesday, and since then its culminated nearly 10,000 plays on the bands SoundCloud page. Now, normally I’ll sprinkle in some satire and fairly unfunny jokes within my posts, but honestly, this band is too good to fuck around with. I’m not even kidding.
Wild Throne came together in 2009 and have released two vinyl EP’s, one each in 2011 and 2012. The release of Bloodmaker on March 4th will be nothing short of epic, as I am assuming the amount of pre-orders has exploded since the preview 48 hours ago. Seriously, its that fucking good.
Their sound? It has an early Mastodon feel, with familiar vocals that are reminiscent of Greg Puciato’s clean-ish singing and a hard-rock edge that gently caresses the hiney of metal every other beat. It reminds me of a harder and more passionately embroiled version of a little known band called Bear Crossing, but distinctly their own…if that makes any sense. I can see Pitchfork creaming their pants over this band, and this time its rightfully deserved (Deafheaven…don’t even get me started).
‘The Wrecking Ball Unchained’ is my favorite of the three tracks released, which you can listen to this very moment. I cannot get it out of my head. Please god do yourself a favor and pre-order their EP via the little shopping cart on the SoundCloud widget below. Did I mention I like these guys? Because I really like these guys. Happy Friday!
What you you guys think? Digging Wild Throne or giving it a pass? Let me know in the comments!
Howie D from Hard Edge Radio recently got the chance to talk to guitarist Justin McCain from hard rockers Emphatic. They got to talk about the ups and downs the band has had over the years, the hype around the latest CD and the single “Remember Me”, The current tour with Red and Gemini Syndrome and the plans for the future.
Their latest CD “Another Life” has been out since August of 2013 and it’s still doing well. The band prides itself on being a band for the fans and tour dates and festival appearances for the remainder of 2014 are being set as we speak.
Please click below to hear the interview with Howie and Justin.
