album review : Celestial Lineage (2011) – Wolves in the Throne Room

album : Celestial Lineage

artist : Wolves in the Throne Room

genre : Black Metal

year : 2011

It all began with Diadem of 12 Stars, and American black metal enthusiasts with the most original name, Wolves in the Throne Room have chosen the end of 2011 to brief us about their present understanding of darkness. Exclusivity being the key on their music, this two member group has yet again tuned the frequency of their music with that of black metal fans and the resonance produced on Celestial Harmony is not going to freak you out.

Churning out anthems of sorrow, Wolves in the Throne Room continue to leave a mark with every release and Celestial Lineage showcases how an original sound can evolve over albums. The band revisits the most unmixed way of writing songs with a barrel of raw riffs being filled with melody drop by drop, and the screeches are held responsible for minimum leakages.

Celestial Lineage succeeds in the entire idea of taking the listener into a hypnotic state, and the longing to stay there remains as they keep chanting about nature. Wake up and smell the black metal coffee as poured by Wolves in the Throne Room who also have one of the most illegible logos out there. With this they have met all the rules and henceforth they shall be addressed as makers of music that is of the genre, by the genre and for the genre.

Key tracksThuja Magus Imperium, Subterranean Initiation, Astral Blood, Prayer of Transformation
