2.5 averagezaruyache | September 19th 17

The tinny guitar tone doesn't fit the music and the production is really questionable in parts. There are times where riffs fall flat because they simply lack the oomph that a more natural sound would've given them, or the rhythm guitar is turned down low in the mix for no reason. While previous albums had really organic sound and full atmosphere, "Thrice Woven" just lacks that kind of depth. The album does help WitTR expand their sound a little bit (there are a few second wave-y/punk riffs, and spoken word sections by Steve Von Till), but its sound presentation unfortunately doesn't do it any favors.

I give it a 3 for the same reasons zaruyache did. I like the songs a lot, the production kills this album for me though. The guitars used to be thick, fuzzy, and dripping with atmosphere that dominates WITTRs sound. On Thrice Woven they are weak, flat, and boring. This often kills awesome leads (such as right after the interlude on 'The Old Ones Are With Us') that would normally sound so much more epic. The drums went from sounding organic and ritualistic to very mechanical and boring. This is all very weird to me considering the same people who mixed their previous work mixed this one too.rThe stand out songs for me are the 'The Old Ones Are With Us' and 'Fires Roar In The Palace Of The Moon'. This album could have been great. Hopefully they do a remaster or a re-recording of it if enough people criticize the production >.

4.0 excellentZachary J. Dixon | July 17th 17

The first track is really promising and treads slightly different ground for Wolves. Let's hope this kicks the past two albums in the dirt because Wolves has definitely been in a bit of a slump. rEdit-this was a beauty. It doesn't quite touch albums like Diadem or Two Hunters, but the creative ambition has been revived and Wolves does a perfect job balancing soft, soothing ambience with good ole' icy cold black metal. I'd also like to mention that the drumming is probably the most vigorous and "busy" that WITTR has ever done.
