They’re followed by the UK release of Wild Throne’s album, ‘Harvest Of Darkness’, on 9th September. Wild Throne are no strangers to crossing boundaries, not just with their music, but also how they play it. “We really wanted this album to have a more dynamic presence than anything we had done in the past,” says vocalist/guitarist Josh Holland. “Musically and lyrically, we wanted to make sure it had a kind of pulse—that it be very human and flawed but alive and still a good listen.”

WildThrone final

 

The Wild Throne sound is a blend of thrash, progressive rock, and classic melodic NWOBHM that invokes names like Mastodon, Judas Priest, Mars Volta, Queens of the Stone Age, Coheed and Cambria, and Dillinger Escape Plan.

‘Harvest of Darkness’ is anchored by lyrics that explore the human condition – an emotional exploration that’s personal and universal. The album’s titular first track is a distillation of what’s to come, and is, Holland says, “about hanging on to negativity and resentment and then answering to the consequences of doing so down the line.” ‘Fear Yourself’, the album’s most anthemic song mines similar territory, that of “staying out of your own way,” Holland says. “I think a vague fear of failure is pretty normal and the song is about crumbling under that fear into the realm of self-sabotage.” Talking about track ‘War Is A Romance’, Holland explains, “Humans tend to seek out both love and war instinctively. Rather than thinking of them as opposites, I wanted to suggest that the intensities of violence and passion actually share more similarities than differences. That the hunger to fight is some sort of inner romance. We lust for it.”
