Wolves in the Throne Room, Nommo Ogo, Druden
13 NW 6th Ave.
[PURE MOODS METAL] If the paths of black metal and Pure Moods New Age were ever to intersect, you can bet your stack of Sunn amps Olympia’s Wolves in the Throne Room will be there to light the sage and get the “astral metal” party started. Celestial Lineage was hailed by Pitchfork as "American black metal's idiosyncratic defining record of 2011," and we can expect plenty more where that came from on the forthcoming Celestite. Teaser "Initiation at Neudeg Alm" is an atmospheric dirge built off a lattice of synth arpeggios that brings to mind the smoldering loam of a post-cataclysmic wasteland, likely to be followed by an onslaught of crusty vocals and diabolic tremolo picking. Please check your aggression, corpse paint and cell phone camera at the door, per the band's request. Thank you.
