WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM
DIADEM OF 12 STARS
Black metal with a more pronounced than usual ethereal twist, Wolves in the Throne Room pay homage to Mother Nature more than Lucifer on the outfit’s four-track release. This Washington-based trio takes the Northwestern naturalist aesthetic and translates it into the realm of foreboding screams, cacophonous guitars, and lo-fi ambience. Featuring guest vocal appearances by the singers of Hammers of Misfortune and Asunder and produced by The Fucking Champs mainman Tim Green, DIADEM OF 12 STARS transcends the genre’s usual trappings and whips up a masterful blend of symphonic yet diabolical odes perfect for the corpse paint crew and forest dwellers alike.
