Wolves In The Throne Room
WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM are from Washington state and were formed by brothers Nathan (guitar,vocals) and Aaron Weaver (drums) and Rick Dahlin (guitar).The band self-released two demos in 2004 and 2005 before releasing their debut,"Diadem of 12 Stars" in 2006.
"Diadem of 12 Stars" was critically acclaimed and heavily praised throughout the metal underground community and WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM signed to Southern Lord Records.
The band released their second album "Two Hunters" in 2007."Two Hunters" was recorded on tape.The process of the recording was very organic with very minimal use of any digital effects or manipulation.
Even though WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM'S music is deeply rooted in the traditions of black metal,they blend their music with elements of raw black metal,punk,folk and progressive rock and metal,subverting the common aesthetic and ideology in order to remain true to their own personal manifestations.Their willingness to experiment with unconventional methods of recording and collaborate with avant-garde musicians sets them apart from most of the bands in this genre.This willingness to take chances and forge ahead with total disregard of convention or boundaries makes them a perfect fit for Tech/Extreme Prog Metal and they are HIGHLY recommended.
