Media outlets are growing weirder by the minute. Ten years ago you would have never seen NPR stream a band like Deafheaven, or something of the like. Now, apparently, the New York Times want to get in on all the blacktion (black metal action), because they’re streaming the new Wolves In The Throne Room record, which actually isn’t black metal at all. You can stream it below!
I’ve listened to the record and I’m going to tell you right now that if you’re expecting Celestial Lineage Pt 2 or even a Sunn O))) ripoff then you’re going to be upset. It’s definitely bold of the band to make such a dramatic shift in their sound, but it just isn’t for me. Hopefully it finds you better, though I have a feeling they’re going to lose some fans over this.
Stream them album right here and don’t forget to pick it up Celestite July 8th.
