about

Wild Throne Bellingham, Washington

Wild Throne consists of Josh Holland (guitar/vocals), Noah Burns (drums) and Jeff Johnson (bass). The band’s sound is a dynamic mix of elements of Judas Priest, Mastodon, Queen, the Mars Volta, classic metal, thrash and progressive rock, creating music that Pitchfork once described as “exhilarating, fun [and] ferocious” and “proof that ambition and skill don’t automatically cancel out heart.” ... more

Track Name: The Wrecking Ball Unchained
There is a place beyond the moon
An island in an ocean of light.
And if you hold your hands in truths
There is a fountain, the fountain of youth.

The confusion of time and death
As it falls through your hands.
The illusion of Jesus before you
And visions from heavens above.
Purging all who have left us behind
With guns to their hearts.
There's a kingdom inside to protect from destruction
And reign.
Dangling from the wrecking ball unchained.

But you don't know when is the end.

When you don't know where you've been before
And you don't know where you will be going again
You just stand there with the weight on your toes.
Staring down from the ends if the Earth at the hellions below you
Fearing the shadows.

It is a place inside your heart
Where nothing can trespass
A heaven inside.

There is a place beyond the moon
An island in an ocean of light.
And if you hold your hands in truths
There is a fountain, the fountain of youth.
It is a place inside your heart
Where nothing can trespass.
A heaven inside.
And if you come up empty
Don't say I didn't turn around.
Dangling from the wrecking ball unchained.
Track Name: Shadow Deserts
Desert dusts fall
From this fortress.
A bright sun burns down on us.
Sand stained by his blood.

You've got some gumption and courage, you coward.
Why would you come here if you knew you'd be taken away?
Sent back to die away from this tower.
Blinded by vultures with only the shadows to show you the way.

In the absence
Of moral guidance
He will cower and kill
Sand stained by his blood.

You've got some gumption and courage, you coward.
Why would you come here if you knew you'd be taken away?
Sent back to die away from this tower.
Blinded by vultures with only the shadows to show you the way.

Why would you come here? Never return here.
Track Name: Blood Maker
Maker, fucking show me what you're made of.
You watch us through your window
You did the best you could.
Father, in the skies I see a fire
And if I told you it's the devil
Would you look him in the eye?

You're breaking my heart
I cry up to god.
But you've gone to meet your maker in the sky.

Maker, and in your name I say a prayer
To send me to the gallows, and put me in her arms.
Angel, and in her eyes I see halos.

And though your days were good and long
you've gone and left me here. Oh, iron bells.
Ring for me, pray for me, they can't have you.
Visions of angels distracted by liars and thieves
Thieves of the progress and all that we've achieved
In your heart.

You're breaking my heart
I cry up to god.
But you've gone to meet your maker in the sky.

I love you, and when I see you again
You will bring me to my knees.
When my heart-strings no longer bleed.
Dried up and cold in the ground.
God isn't scared of you
God he loves you if you show him where you bleed.
In your heart.
