Wolves in the Throne Room w/Pillorian Wolves in the Throne Room drummer, bassist and synth-player Aaron Weaver is depressed by the neo-Nazis that seem to occupy a sect of the black metal scene his band thrives in, but don’t expect him to preach on it when the Washington-based outfit lands in Cigar City. “The Nazis I have met are broken, sad people who feel so small and weak,” Weaver said in a recent interview. “They are lashing out. They crave violence to fill the emptiness inside. The way I can serve justice and goodness is to make music.” And goodness is that music nice. The band’s last album (Celestite, released in 2014) found Wolves in the Throne Room tripping over an attempt to weave electronic sounds into a tried-and-true formula, but fans never abandoned Weaver and his brother Nathan. That loyalty has been awarded a new album, Thrice Woven, which finds the Weavers moving back towards the WIITTR of yore thanks to the return of epic riffs and nature boy lyrics fans came to know and love after a pair of Southern Lord Records releases put the band on the map in 2007 and 2009). Portland, Oregon trio Pillorian — touring in support of its own 2017 LP Obsidian Arc — opens the show. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO
