Wild Throne

We've been getting stoked on Wild Throne for a while now; this Washington State-based prog metal unit brings way more rock'n'roll hookiness to the table than their genre tag suggests. You can now stream their debut EP (under their current name, anyway), Blood Maker, in full (courtesy of MetalSucks). It comes out on March 4 via Brutal Panda Records -- preorder digitally here or on vinyl here. Listen below.

If you'll be in Austin for SXSW, you can catch them at the Invisible Oranges' 2014 SXSW showcase on Thursday, March 13 at the Quantum Lounge, along with Black Tusk, Mutoid Man, Kayo Dot, Yautja, & Venomous Maximus. That's good company.
