Wolves In The Throne Room - Celestite
Now you maybe thinking, experimentation is good. Which in this case its fucking brilliant! Ever since WITTR's "Two Hunters" LP dropped each album after has been more and more vicious, yet atmospheric at the same time. This time they went totally "Tangerine Dream" on their fans and it fucking works magically.
Never do the tracks drag on, and especially on ,"Celestite Mirror" you get this feeling in your gut that you are a part of something bigger than you in the form of a Black Metal band not following the rule books and setting up soundscapes that allow you to take a Cascade Journey without leaving your room.
I have read that this is a companion record to their last full length, "Celestial Mirror" now Im not sure if thats true but after leaving Southern Lord Records and going with Artemisia Records I would say that both parties are happy with what WITTR have done for their labels in terms of originality and integrity. I highly suggest giving this record a listen in a candle lit room, with zero distractions and just see where, "Celestite" can take you.
