California based metallic / dark hardcore band WOLF KING have shared their new single “Sanctuary”, coming from their new LP The Path of Wrath, to be released on February 5th, 2021.
Of the album and new single the band comment, “The Path of Wrath tells of a collective journey through the turmoils and tribulations of life. Filmed during our last tour in March with Vale of Pnath, Sanctuary takes on the perspective of realizing that the only way to escape this wretched world is through death’s cold hands. We’re born without choice, forced to endure suffering, and find clarity through lifelessness.”
The Path of Wrath tells real life tales of existential struggles and explorations of life and death. This abrasive take on mortality and the afterlife traverses themes of judgement, salvation, and looking ‘beyond the veil’. As they pick over the weight of sin and uncover the burdens of both damnation and forgiveness, ripples of pure darkness infiltrate every crevice of the album.
The band’s sound is captured in its most natural and unrestrained form, thanks to recording by Cody Guentes at both Prairie Sun Recordings and Rapture Recordings in California, with mixing and mastering was handled by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden, rounding out a full and rich sounding album perfectly.
Few do blackened heavy metal better than WOLF KING. For an uncompromising, filth-drenched, smoke-infused take on the genre, The Path of Wrath delivers the goods and then some.
The Path of Wrath by WOLF KING will be released via Prosthetic Records on March 5, 2021.
