This band hails from Olympia WA and creates some of the most mystical and beautiful metal Ive heard in a couple of years. As stated, the term Black Metal is thrown around entirely to easy in this day and age, and I wish this could be under control. Wolves in the Throne Room definitely possesses a Black Metal feel but they just go so much deeper and farther than the traditional cult bands, incorporating atmospheric, and a flowing almost trance-like feeling for their listeners. I would encourage fans of all genres of metal to add this to their collection, and read up on this band. Every time I spin either of their discs I am amazed and truly satisfied. Buy Diadem of the 12 Stars as well, you will thank yourself!
