A Game Of Thrones: WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM Vs. THRONE OF KATARSIS

Okay, this morning I would like to do something different than the usual “Morning Jam.” I think from now on, Fridays will start off with a comparison of two bands with similar names (consisting of one or more of the same words), an example of each band’s music and the pros about each band. Now, these bands will not always fit into the same genre, in fact most of the time they probably won’t. This morning this piece is called A Game Of Thrones and it focuses on Throne of Katarsis Vs. Wolves In The Throne Room. I love both of these bands but for different reasons and now I shall tell you why. I hope you enjoy this piece.

THRONE OF KATARSIS Will Meet You At The Grave

Throne of Katarsis are planning to release their third album, Ved Graven this fall. I don’t know a lot of about this Norwegian black metal entity, but I’ve heard a few track and they’re pretty good. I’m looking forward to hearing this album. Below is an excerpt straight from the press release and you can see the track list after the jump.

Ved Graven (fundamentally translated to “at the grave”) is ultimately the darkest material written by the band since their inception in 2004. Cold and raw, and with the bizarre aura of an everlasting funeral, THRONE OF KATARSIS recorded the seven rites of this album over three long nights, recording in total darkness. All instruments and vocals were recorded in a live séance in order to capture the aura the band creates during their convocations. Several guitar leads were added to this sinister mix, as well as an organ, recorded during a late night ceremony at a local church in Norway.
