Wolves In The Throne Room ‘Celestial Lineage’
(Southern Lord)

Wolves In The Throne Room may be heading a wave of US bands challenging the foundations of black metal, but they’ve become a spiritual célèbre in their own right..The nucleus of brothers Aaron and Nathan Weaver have, over the course of eight years and now four albums, placed themselves at the heart of black metal’s existential crisis  and made it resonate for and ever-growing, enraptured audience…ask drummer/ guitarist Aaron Weaver about his relationship to black metal and you’ll find a man to whom this is a crucial, philosophical question. “I think about that all the time…Because I think fundamentally orthodox black metal is conservative, backwards-looking music…we have no connection to it as modern people. We can make up some sort of connection, some hokey Norse religion, but it’s gone. That’s the world of ghosts and of ancestors. And I think that black metal allows you to open the portal to that…and you can lose yourself in it. We don’t do that”…Celestial Lineage, is such an endeavour ringing out with a fearless honesty and aching elemental sadness whose liberating power extends far beyond our atrophied expectations of what music can do.”
