Straight off the back of his relatively acclaimed I’m Gay (I’m Happy), Lil B has a new mixtape titled I Forgive You. Nothing new here, just more oddball “based” ramblings, but this closing track, ‘Im 2 Real’, stands out with a cool beat.
New track from Wolves in the Throne Room, definitely my favourite contemporary metal band, from their forthcoming LP Celestial Lineage.
'Woodland Cathedral' represents a departure from the aggression of their last record, Black Cascade, and a return to the more atmospheric sound of their earlier work, in particular their breakthrough Two Hunters.
The track also marks a return for Jessika Kenney on vocals, who previously guested on Two Hunters and seems to be developing into the go-to choral-vocalist for avant-metal bands. She led the choir on Monoliths and Dimensions by Sunn O))) and Stephen O’Malley has just issued one of her records on his Editions Mego sub-label.
But Kenney is definitely a very talented vocalist and arranger, so I’m looking forward to hearing how this sits within the context of the record.
