NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL!!! California post-black metal quartet WILD HUNT have landed a big sound on "Afterdream of the Reveller," the title track to their just-announced second album. All of this began when Wild Hunt's guitar player DREW COOK unexpectedly passed away in April 2015, on the morning that the band was about to embark on a two-week tour with Cormorant. The remaining members dropped the tour and instead released Scroll and Urn, an EP they had recently completed and were originally planning on selling on the road. Because of what had happened, Scroll and Urn was released as a tribute to Drew in the days following his passing. It remains Cook's last recorded work. In June 2015, as a way of coping and moving forward in the wake of Cook's death, Wild Hunt began work on their next record. "Nest of Flames," "Palingenesia" and "Choir of a Greater Sea" were originally written and performed with Cook and were now properly recorded for the first time, and one of Cook's remaining riffs made up the final section of "Odious Gamble."
