WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM Reveal Details On New Recordings

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

Following the November release of their BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini two-track live 12” via Southern Lord, new recordings from WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM have been confirmed for a 2014 release. Following several months of anticipation, the Cascadian black metal clan comprised of brothers Aaron and Nathan Weaver now humbly unveil their impending full-length release, Celestite.

Taking a different approach than their previous LPs, Celestite is a completely newly envisioned, parallel-universe version of Celestial Lineage, the beautifully blackened fourth studio full-length epic WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM released via Southern Lord in 2011. Celestite arises with a whole new, ethereal approach. There are no drums and no vocals. Rather, deep, heavy crystalline synthesizer journeying, Eno-inspired analog processing and arcane acoustic instrumentation expand upon dimensions folded within the universe of Celestial Lineage.

The Weavers tell us: “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 for us 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.” 

Paired once again with producer Randall Dunn (Earth, Sunn O))), Master Musicians Of Bukkake), Celestite came to fruition at Avast Studios and WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM’s own Olympia-based studio Owl Lodge. While cloistered during the recording sessions they made use of a mammoth arsenal of crumbling vintage equipment including a Serge Modular System, Korg Poly6, Korg MS20, Korg Mono/Poly, Roland Juno 106, Roland Jupiter 6, Roland Super jx10, Jomox Airbase 99, Access Virus and more. The album also features a guest wind ensemble including friends Josiah Boothby on French Horn, Steve Moore (Earth, Sunn O))), Stebmo) on Trombone, and both Mara Winter and Veronica Dye on flute.

The upcoming release of Celestite is doubly exciting for WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM as it will mark another new venture for the duo; the inaugural release on their own new label, Diadem Records. The band states, “Diadem Records is the imprint we created to release Celestite and future albums. Most importantly for us, working on this album has revealed a whole new vein of creative energy for WITTR. Now that the long trip of creating this album is finished, our appetite is whetted for future projects, thus we feel it necessary to pre-empt the inevitable chatter that will accompany the release of this record. WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM has not permanently abandoned the guitar and drums! We sense that one day — perhaps sooner, perhaps later — we will be inspired to return to our stacks of amplifiers and cabinets to create new music.”

Stay tuned for samples of the music created for Celestite as well as the album’s cover art, official release dates, pressing information and more to be announced in the weeks ahead.

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM: Recordings Penned For 2014 Release

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Barring the recent release of their BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini live 12”, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM have been keeping a low profile since the conclusion of the world-spanning tour that supported their most recent LP, Celestial Lineage. Now, word comes that the band, along with producer Randall Dunn, has been quietly cultivating the next chapter in their ongoing musical evolution. While little else is known of the impending recordings as of now, the brothers Weaver have confirmed that, the music is currently in the final stages, being prepared for release in the first quarter of 2014. An official communiqué on WITTR’s impending 2014 actions will be announced very early in the New Year.

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM’s BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini was released in late November, once again via Southern Lord Recordings, who also unveiled the act’s acclaimed second LP, Two Hunters (2007), the Malevolent Grain EP and Black Cascade LP (2009), and most recently the triumphant Celestial Lineage LP (2011). The BBC 12” contains the massive “Prayer of Transformation” and “Thuja Magus Imperium” — pieces culled from Celestial Lineage and recorded live at the BBC’s storied Maida Vale Studios while WITTR was in the midst of a tour of the UK. While far from a full length LP, BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini served to tide anxious fans over, while new production was still being organized.

Immediately after their 2004 inception, Olympia, Washington’s WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM have been leaders in the forward advancement of American metal, and have since been a worldwide force in pushing the boundaries of the black metal genus into new realms. The band’s trance-inducing delivery of their anthems has been witnessed by fans internationally in the live setting, as WITTR has trekked across most of the habitable continents over the past decade. While they’ve performed at massive festivals including Roadburn, Hell Fest and Roskilde, the band also veers far from the well-trod paths, booking shows at unconventional venues and art spaces in addition to performing in barns, on beaches and in forests, bringing their wholly underground and uncompromising ethos to fruition with their fans.

New information on exactly what WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM will deliver in 2014 will be released early in January.

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM: Southern Lord Confirms BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

On Friday, October 21st, 2011 – one month after releasing their fourth studio album, Celestial Lineage, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM recorded two live tracks at the BBC’s Maida Vale studios. Southern Lord now confirms a special vinyl release of these sessions confirmed to hit later this Fall. It seems only fitting that Olympia’s earthen black metal expanders, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, would add their name to the roster of acts who have recorded at the Maida Vale studios, the place where the sounds of contemporary and outstanding artists throughout the last century of popular music have been documented for the ages.

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM’s shadow, cast long and eerie from their campfire of the arcane, eclipses the hordes of black metal clones and drones, hewing raw nuggets of inspired music from rich seams of extreme metal and astral vibrations. “Prayer of Transformation” and “Thuja Magus Imperium” are the two tracks recorded on that day, taken from their lauded album Celestial Lineage and spanning two sides of vinyl and twenty minutes. Entitled BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini, this session is testament to the band’s ability to inspire awe with homespun strands of metaphysical ambiance and painstakingly flexed sinews of metal, and is a must for all fans of the band as well as followers of contemporary metal.

Southern Lord will release BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini in North America on November 26th, 2013.

BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini Track Listing:
1 Prayer of Transformation
2 Thuja Magus Imperium

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM Issue Status Update; Band Self-Reissues Lauded Two Hunters 2xLP

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Following many months of touring throughout 2011 and into 2012 in support of their fourth full-length release, Celestial Lineage, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM this week issue an official statement on the current state of the band as well as some insight on what the future may hold for the brothers Weaver.

“After months of journeying we’re settled back into our life at home. Soft, warm breezes, the calls of Ravens and Eagles, the scent of Cedar and Salt Water. The Northwest Summer is a soothing balm to the stresses and strains of the road and the alchemic pressure-cooker of the recording studio. But it has been a great two years for us. We are so proud of Celestial Lineage, and our tours in the United States and Europe were inspiring and full of good experiences. Contrary to sensationalist rumor, we have no desire or intention to end Wolves In The Throne Room. It is very possible that future albums will be recorded. Live performances might transpire. But for now, we are reconnecting to hearth and home. We’d like to extend our heartfelt thank to everyone who has helped and supported us over the years. Playing this music has transformed us as people, and we are blessed to have shared this path with so many other travelers.”

In other news, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM recently pressed a brand new vinyl pressing of their landmark 2008 full-length Two Hunters. The album likely considered the “fan favorite” from the band’s catalog of releases, Two Hunters has undeniably helped elevate WITTR into the upper echelon of contemporary extreme metal as well as having a substantial impact on USBM in general. Having remained out-of-print on wax since its initial release, the band has taken it upon themselves to self-release the new pressing. The double 180-gram LP layout features a thick, full color Stoughton gatefold tip-on jacket, full color printed inner-sleeves for each LP, and an embossed gold foil stamped logo on front cover. Additionally this version includes an extended intro to the track “Cleansing,” featuring vocals by Jessika Kenney, as well as the nearly seventeen-minute-long vinyl-only bonus track “To Reveal.” The Two Hunters 2xLP is available direct from the band now AT THIS LOCATION.

The Weaver brothers will issue more info on WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM’s future in due time.

Southern Lord: Upcoming 2011 Releases

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

In their continued reign of bringing some of the most talented, underground bands on the heaviest end of the musical spectrum to the public, Southern Lord have just unveiled their upcoming schedule for the remainder of the year, including releases from NOOTHGRUSH, DEAD IN THE DIRT, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, BLACK COBRA, CRAFT, HEARTLESS and SUNN 0))).

This coming Tuesday, September 27th, prepare for a crushing live release from one of the sludge metal scene’s most underrated, unsung, and recently reformed acts; NOOTHGRUSH. Southern Lord will drop the notorious Bay Area act’s Live for Nothing CD, bearing an hour and 20 minutes of some of the most low-end sludge/doom known to man. The record hosts two live radio broadcasts from NOOTHGRUSH; the first from KZSU from 1996 and the other from KFJC in 1999. Both recordings are a precise document of the powerful group in their prime, the recordings were mastered by From Ashes Rise guitarist Brad Boatright. The label will then release the gatefold 2xLP vinyl edition of Live For Nothing on November 8th.

++++++++++

DEAD IN THE DIRT’s debut 7” Fear will be released will be released next week as well. The Atlanta-based band’s unhinged style draws from the discordant heaviness His Hero is Gone, the urgency of Cursed, the speed of DropDead and the blackened darkness of Deathspell Omega. Fear, is literally one of the heaviest and most brutal recordings from a new act to come out in recent times, and will see a one-time pressing of 1500 copies via Southern Lord on September 27, 2011, and once it’s sold out, it’s dead. Catch DEAD IN THE DIRT still on their current tour through next week and watch for much more in the coming weeks. And find a full stream of DEAD IN THE DIRT’s Fear EP via BrooklynVegan RIGHT HERE.

++++++++++

A record as dynamic as it is devastating, Invernal, the almighty fourth full-length from San Francisco’s BLACK COBRA, will finally bulldoze its way into the hands of North American fans on CD this October 11th, and on gatefold-jacketed LP to be released in the months ahead. Raging with whiplash-inducing time change-ups and wreaking more damage than lineups three times the size of this brutalizing duo, BLACK COBRA will be on the road with Kyuss Lives! in November and December and will be announcing countless more support and headlining tours through 2012, as always proving to remain one of the hardest-working bands on the scene.

++++++++++

Washington’s WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM recently set free their fourth full-length Celestial Lineage on CD September 13th, boasting some of the clan’s most majestic and mammoth black metal magic to date, and bringing their ongoing trilogy of albums to a brilliant finale. Celestial Lineage has been overtaking their fans and the media, bringing hundreds of fans to nearly every show of their ongoing North American tour. The new opus will be presented on 2xLP this October 25th. Following their currently ongoing North American tour, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM will embark on their European phase in support of Celestial Lineage.

++++++++++

On October 25th, Swedish horde CRAFT will once again threaten humanity with their gritty, orthodox style of blackened might via the official North American release of their newest full-length, Void. followed by a 12” vinyl pressing on November 8th. Void delivers a nine-track convoy of black hymns over forty nine-minutes, showcasing CRAFT integrating more black ‘n roll vibes and slow-motion suicidal stomps, and ultimately spewing forth some of this hateful Scandinavian crew’s swiftest and cruelest punishment to date.

++++++++++

Pittsburgh hardcore warriors HEARTLESS will make their Southern Lord debut this autumn, with the release of Hell Is Other People. HEARTLESS’ sound is exactly what their moniker implies; brutal, suffocating, and void of remorse. Bellowing with sinister, mayhem that diehards of metallic hardcore in the vein of Integrity, Cursed or Nails, rushing with crust/powerviolence intensity. Following a rash of 7” releases via an array of D.I.Y. labels over the past handful of years, the band’s debut full-length Hell Is Other People will see a North American compact disc release on November 8th, and on LP November at a later date to be announced shortly. Stay tuned for continuous updates on this unit into 2012.

++++++++++

Closing out the 2011 release schedule, Southern Lord will proudly reissue SUNN 0)))’s long out-of-print sophomore album ØØ Void, finally finding its proper resting place. Following the duo’s Grimmrobe Demos debut, ØØ Void was initially released in 2000 via HydraHead in North America and Rise Above in Europe, with only a limited reissue via Daymare Records in Japan in 2008, making these hymns virtually out of print for some eight years. Not only featuring the core guitarists Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson, ØØ Void features bass by Stuart Dahlquist (Burning Witch, Goatsnake), as well as guest contributions from Petra Haden (QOTSA, Foo Fighters, The Decemberists) on violins and vocals, as well as Pete Stahl (Scream, Wool, Goatsnake, QOTSA) contributing vocals, and was recorded on 2″ tape by Scott Reeder (The Obsessed, Kyuss, Goatsnake). This 2011 reissue features revamped artwork by Stephen Kasner and a layout by Stephen O’Malley. Now this highly sought-after catalog piece for worshippers of the pulverizing SUNN 0))) drone style will be available again via a proper Southern Lord reissue. The reissue of ØØ Void will hit North American streets on November 22nd via CD, with an LP pressing at a later date to be announced soon.

Stay tuned for tons of news from the Southern Lord camp over the coming weeks, as many a horde of brand new and pending label signings are announced, and a rash of new releases for the first quarter of 2012 are unveiled.

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM: NPR Track Premiere & Tour Updates

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Today, mainstream media outlet National Public Radio is hosting the public’s first listen to “Woodland Cathedral,” the fifth track off of Cascadian black metal act WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM’s upcoming LP, Celestial Lineage. The majestic “Woodland Cathedral” is surely one of the most melodic and serene arrangements within WITTR’s latest triad of albums, –  a trio that began with 2007’s incredibly organic opus Two Hunters, segued by 2009’s more aggressive Black Cascade album, and now climaxing with Celestial Lineage – and is a primal example of what the newest LP from one America’s paramount black metal acts is capable of delivering.

Tune in HERE to immerse yourself in the hymn.

Celestial Lineage is set for release in North America via Southern Lord Recordings on September 13, 2011, and is inarguably one of the most anticipated black metal releases of the entire year.

In related news, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM have expanded and adjusted their previously announced first tour in support of Celestial Lineage, which embarks at the end of August, and will now run into early October. WITTR will be joined by Louisiana sludge-crushers Thou for a solid chunk of the Canadian and Midwest/Northeast U.S. dates, while their brethren in Portland-based Megaton Leviathan will join much of the second segment of the tour. Due to the underground nature of this tour, the details for some engagements will be announced at a later date; stay tuned to WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM’s official website for constant updates to this voyage.
