WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM are being praised from the metal media internationally, having appeared as main cover features for magazines like Terrorizer, Zero Tolerance and more, as well as being prominently featured in The New Yorker, NPR, Pitchfork (#6 metal album of 2011), hundreds of local and regional papers and mags and literally countless blogs and webzines. Undeniably one of the most well received metal albums of 2011, Celestial Lineage is the final installment in a triad of albums – beginning with 2007’s incredibly organic opus Two Hunters, segued by 2009’s more aggressive Black Cascade album – and showcases the Weaver brothers’ most epic and textured organic black metal magic to date.
