The band that launched hipster black metal get a reissue of their 2006 classic Diadem of 12 Stars, a record that treated the genre as ambient rumination in what is usually a place for sonic severity. Wolves In The Throne Room are one of black metal's biggest contemporary names and this record is perhaps its most fitting modern masterpiece: a record recorded in a "windowless, black room". But of course.
Wolves in the Throne Room
From the band themselves: “To make Celestite we delved into the subterranean sonics that are buried in the mix of Celestial Lineage. We isolated them, processed them and took this unearthed soundscape as our starting point. Upon this base we recorded an entirely new album. Some melodies from Celestial Lineage are recognizable, but these familiar sounds appear as ghosts, barely tethered to the original compositions. This new album is an unorthodox foray; a fully instrumental, experimental companion record to Celestial Lineage. We left some work undone with Celestial Lineage. The recording of that album in the Winter of 2011 was a monumental project fo rus personally, and the creative fire from those recording sessions was still burning. This recording process was an opportunity to journey into our own inner universe to complete that which needed to be completed.”
Celestite is the inaugural release on Wolves in the Throne Room’s new label, Artemisia Records.
