Since 2002, over the course of 5 studio albums and hundreds of live performances, Wolves in the Throne Room have refracted Black Metal through their own unique Cascadian prism. The resulting essence is music that is intimately linked to the wild lands of the Pacific Northwest.
Aaron and Nathan Weaver, the core members of WITTR, employ crystalline Black Metal, crushing Funeral Doom, otherworldly psychedelic dark ambient soundscapes and lilting folk passages. Their pioneering sound has expanded the boundaries of underground Metal in ways that have been both bold and influential.
Their first full length LP – the raw, analog Diadem of the 12 Stars (2006, re-issued in 2016) – was recorded by the duo and second guitarist Rick Dahlin on a shoestring budget at Louder Studios in San Francisco by Tim Green (Nation of Ulysses). It features guest vocalists Jamie Myers (Hammers of Misfortune and Dino Sommese (Asunder / Dystopia).
In 2007 the band signed with Southern Lord and released Two Hunters, the start of a loose trilogy and their first collaboration with producer Randall Dunn also known for his work with Earth, Boris, SUNN 0))) and Bjork/Omar Souleyman.
The four tracks on their next album Black Cascade (2009) are raw and stripped-down. Veteran underground musician Will Lindsay replaced Rick Dahlin on guitar for these sessions and the accompanying EP Malevolent Grain.
Completing the trilogy was 2011’s Celestial Lineage. Composed entirely by the two Weavers, it featured their widest array of collaborators including Aaron Turner (Isis, Sumac, Old Man Gloom) and the return of Jessika Kenney.
In 2014 they returned quietly, launching their own label, Artemisia, in order to take complete creative control of their art & business dealings. Their first release on their new label was Celestite, a instrumental ambient companion piece to Celestial Lineage.
In 2017 the band releases the new album "Thrice Woven".
