By now, you know the score. The new Wolves In The Throne is not a black metal album, instead, they chose to reinterpret their previous work Celestial Lineage as, and I’m cutting all the extraneous wording, a ‘more ambient piece’. Naturally, if you’re a fan of the band, it’s an interesting prospect. Although they were always a metal band, they still managed to create soundscapes more than songs. So, you’ll be glad to know the new track from the band is exactly that — a huge vast world of sound to be explored.
‘Celestite Mirror‘ is available to stream here, via the new Bandcamp page for Artemisia Records that has been set up for this release.

Getting to the point, I’m genuinely interested as to how people receive this. It’s certainly a different step and with the world of black metal having a reputation for being both ‘strictly traditional’ and ‘completely forward thinking’, you could never say the fans were predictable.
Either way, Celestite will see an 8th of July release. You won’t want to miss it.
