Following the November release of their BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini two-track live 12″ via Southern Lord, new recordings from WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM have been confirmed for a 2014 release. Following several months of anticipation, the Cascadian Black Metal clan comprised of brothers Aaron and Nathan Weaver now humbly unveil their impending full-length release, Celestite.

Taking a different approach than their previous LPs, Celestite is a completely newly envisioned, parallel-universe version of Celestial Lineagethe beautifully blackened fourth studio full-length epic WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM released via Southern Lord in 2011. Celestite arises with a whole new, ethereal approach. There are no drums and no vocals. Rather, deep, heavy crystalline synthesizer journeying, Eno-inspired analog processing and arcane acoustic instrumentation expand upon dimensions folded within the universe of Celestial Lineage.

__________________________

The Weavers tell us: “To make Celestite, we delved into the subterranean sonics that are buried in the mix of Celestial Lineage. We isolated them, processed them and took this unearthed soundscape as our starting point. Upon this base we recorded an entirely new album. Some melodies from Celestial Lineage are recognizable, but these familiar sounds appear as ghosts, barely tethered to the original compositions. This new album is an unorthodox foray; a fully instrumental, experimental companion record to Celestial Lineage. We left some work undone with Celestial Lineage. The recording of that album in the Winter of 2011 was a monumental project for us personally, and the creative fire from those recording sessions was still burning. This recording process was an opportunity to journey into our own inner universe to complete that which needed to be completed.”

Paired once again with producer Randall Dunn (Earth, Sunn O))), Master Musicians Of Bukkake), Celestite came to fruition at Avast Studios and WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM’s own Olympia-based studio Owl Lodge. While cloistered during the recording sessions they made use of a mammoth arsenal of crumbling vintage equipment including a Serge Modular System, Korg Poly6, Korg MS20, Korg Mono/Poly, Roland Juno 106, Roland Jupiter 6, Roland Super jx10, Jomox Airbase 99, Access Virus and more. The album also features a guest wind ensemble including friends Josiah Boothby on French Horn, Steve Moore (Earth, Sunn O))), Stebmo) on Trombone, and both Mara Winter and Veronica Dye on flute.

____________________________

The upcoming release of Celestite is doubly exciting for WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM as it will mark another new venture for the duo; the inaugural release on their own new label, Diadem Records. The band states, “Diadem Records is the imprint we created to release Celestite and future albums. Most importantly for us, working on this album has revealed a whole new vein of creative energy for WITTR. Now that the long trip of creating this album is finished, our appetite is whetted for future projects, thus we feel it necessary to pre-empt the inevitable chatter that will accompany the release of this record. WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM has not permanently abandoned the guitar and drums! We sense that one day, perhaps sooner, perhaps later, we will be inspired to return to our stacks of amplifiers and cabinets to create new music.”

Satyricon - Self-Titled - promo cover pic

Satyricon, the self-titled eighth studio album by Norwegian black masters SATYRICON, has debuted at #12 on the U.S.A. Billboard Heatseekers chart and #30 on the Hard Music chart.

Other world chart entries include: #1 – Norway; #6 – Finland; #23 – Germany; and #26 – Australia.

“SATYRICON fans have shown that there is still room for authentic music with an analog sound,” states frontman Satyr. “They have shown it to the degree that it has given us formidable chart positions in very competitive markets and in Norway a #1 record. It is the most important record that we have done and now our fans are clearly sending out a very strong message by getting behind it. We are very thankful and proud.”

LASTER – Dutch Black Metal Entity LASTER Announces First Live Performance

Posted in Black Metal, black metal bands, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 13, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Laster - Live Performances - promo flyer - 2013 - #1

Emerging from their self-imposed solitude, atmospheric Black Metal entity LASTER will travel from their Dutch homeland to Germany later this year for their first ever live performance.

Scheduled for Saturday, December 21st, LASTER’s live debut will take place at Musikbunker Aachen in Aachen, Germany. Support will come from NORTHWARD, GOATBLOOD and MORAST. For more info and updates, visit the Concert Event Page.

In 2012, LASTER released the three-track EP, Wijsgeer & Narreman on Dunkelheit Produktionen. Praised for its bleak, yet hypnotic and poetic delivery, the EP is currently available on CD, cassette and digital formats. Looping lamentation and genuine gloom brought to life by songs which leave the standard of DSBM far behind. Floating riffs, melancholic and full of grace, rolling drums and pressing lyrics tell stories about pain that was lived through and artistic musicianship. This music’s pathos aspirated by an energy standing up again and again to fade within monotonous doubt and to indulge in blind despair.

LASTER (meaning libel) was founded and located in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The band consists of N. (NORTHWARD) and W. Damiaen (OMNINIHILIST, SEA OF TREES, WILLOOS, WHITE OAK). Wijsgeer & Narreman is recommended for fans of URFAUST and AUSTERE!

Wijsgeer & Narreman is available at: www.dunkelheit.cc.
