Wolves In the Throne Room create contemporary USBM the way American black metal should be made: with power, grace, beauty and conviction. Brothers Nathan and Aaron Weaver round out and conclude the trilogy that began with Two Hunters by offering up their latest (and last, apparently) triumphant vessel Celestial Lineage. This opus is awash with scuzzy guitars, chimes, female choirs, and the requisite chanting you've come to expect from each and every WITTR release.
Every track has a gorgeously indescribable organic feeling, something woodsy and natural even. It's unfortunate that most black metal artists this beautifully adept at their craft
pack it in too soon. Rest in peace Woods of Ypres, Weakling
There's still Agalloch.
