Coinciding with Southern Lord's 20th anniversary in 2018, the label announces the reissues of all three of their acclaimed albums from Wolves In The Throne Room; Two Hunters, Black Cascade, and Celestial Lineage. About the reissues the band remarks, "We are thrilled that Two Hunters, Black Cascade, and Celestial Lineage are back in print.
These records document a fertile and magical time in our lives and we are so pleased that a new generation of fans will be able to enjoy these records on vinyl."
Since 2006, over the course of six studio albums and hundreds of live performances Wolves in the Throne Room have refracted the transcendent and mythic aspects of Black Metal through their own idiosyncratic Cascadian prism. The resulting essence is music that is intimately linked to the wild lands of the Pacific Northwest.
Their songs explore the hidden world of magic that one accesses through dreams, visions and music. As the mind altering pulse of the drums merges with seemingly infinite layers of guitar, an ocean-deep psychedelic soundscape coalesces.
Time slows down, a portal opens and the blazing metal riffs collapse and shift into a dirge that invokes a misty other-world. In their songs, rain-drenched specters loom at the edge of the wood. Ancient cedar beings stir beneath their wet moss robes. One glimpses a bronze-domed temple rising among the firs.
2009's Black Cascade is characterized by a heavy and powerful analog sound, and a deft touch with songwriting and arrangement. The crumbling roar of decidedly old-school tube amps unite with layers of mossy analog synthesizer and cataclysmic percussion.
Blazing and crystalline metal riffs slowly collapse and shift into ritualistic dirges that invoke endless rain falling upon the ancient cedars of the Pacific Northwest.
