(Chop Suey) Wild Throne is the band formerly known as Dog Shredder. Dude! “Dog Shredder” was such a butch name for a metal band! It makes me wonder why the switch to Wild Throne—did animal activists complain? Did someone mistakenly think these three metal-heads from Bellingham, Washington were covertly making street-meat tacos out of the converted wolves we all now know more simply as “man’s best friend?” In any case, Wild Throne shred guitars with as much fury as they did as Dog Shredder and they have a new EP out called Blood Maker. If you’ve ever been a fan of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Mastodon, or the Fucking Champs, then you should go for a walk with these guys. No dogs! With Gaytheist and Drunk Dad.
