WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM – Reveal Details On New Recordings

Wolves In The Throne Room - promo band pic - 2014 - #66709

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.”

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 - promo band pic - #1 - 2013

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.

Watain - The Wild Hunt - promo cover pic

As reported/written on the WATAIN Facebook page:

“We want to thank all of you who have contributed to the splendour and ruthless victory that marked the release of The Wild Hunt. Those who attended the opening ceremony in Uppsala, who bought the album, who respectfully wrote or in any other way expressed their appreciation for it, who came with gifts and tokens of gratitude, who spread the word and lit new fires across the world.

And so the gates have once again been opened, within and without. A long and winding road lies ahead of us now, and where it will lead we do not yet know. But we look forward to join forces with all of you deathfiends, sons of hades, daughters of the night, outlaws and Wataniacs, who know as well as we that this hunt shall darken the few pages of history that remain…

For night has fallen upon the earth now, but the many fires that were lit at the dawn of this new era can be seen from far away, from beyond the borders of the world, where hungry eyes are ever watching…

By the fires of Satan we salute thee!”

As reported on the Official Venom Website:

Venom are currently in the studio adding the final touches to their new album. The album is being scheduled for release through UMG [Spinefarm Records] in early 2014. [ we will bring more information and album / song titles soon ]

Dante commented: “The new songs are sounding amazing, the whole album has a great feel. I’d say the strength of this band comes from our determination to create great music, and that comes from forward thinking, new ideas and fresh challenges”.

Cronos continued: “I believe this is Venom at it’s best, the song writing keeps getting better, and the live shows are tighter and heavier than ever. It’s clear to me now that all of the line up changes this band has been through over the years, has been an inspiring journey to find the right band of warriors. Venom continue to keep growing stronger, and unstoppable”.

“We are back. Sorry it took so long, but we needed the time to be able to pull off a record like this,” states band frontman Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven. “Comparing this one to previous records is time wasted, it is SATYRICON; constantly on the move. Naming this record Satyricon was the most obvious thing in the world. We have never done a record which captures the spirit of this band in such a way. Ever. It will demand a lot from you as a listener, but I know you will love it. It will grow on you and that is why it will stay with you forever. We won’t tour as much in the future as we used to, and that will just make every tour more special. This album is for you and ourselves. It is our moment!”

WILT - Group Promo Pic - #1 - 2012

As if the oldest tree in the forest pulled up its roots and migrated to its afterlife, a ghostly procession of bark and withered leaves. Death and decay are legion, but there’s a real sense of grace to the airy melodies they embed deep into the compositions, while never being as frivolous or cheap sounding as some of the tunes I’ve heard by Agalloch or Woods of Ypres (bands who possess a similar thematic approach to expression). - From the Dust Returned

WILT was unearthed in the winters of 2010. Founded by Jordan Dorge, later recruited Brett Goodchild to capture Jordan’s vision. Experience WILT, dark deprived Black Metal in its truest form hailing from the frozen prairies of Central Canada, WILT intends to take you on a journey into the depths of your soul and every crevice of the earth.

DHG / Dødheimsgard – Norway’s Black Metal Legends Sign To Peaceville Records

Posted in Black Metal, black metal bands, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on July 3, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

DHG - Peaceville Records Signing - promo banner - 2013

Peaceville Records are proud to announce the signing of Norway’s finest bunch of demonic delinquents, Dødheimsgard (DHG). One of the truly great boundary-pushers & visionaries of the mid-90’s Norwegian Black Metal evolution, & having released 4 full-length albums to date since their inception, DHG are widely hailed as masters of dark & psychotic psychedelia-tinged extremity.

“Now, here we are, a new band with brand new songs, letting something unconscious and dormant become the conscious and the awake.

In addition, we will also finish the re-reissuing of our past titles on Peaceville Records, since they’ve done such a good job taking care of the other material. This means that “Satanic Art”, “Monumental Possession” and “Kronet til Konge” will again be available to the masses at some point in the near future. I also plan to release a lot of additional psychopharma in relation to the next couple of releases, as treatment for the over-average crazy patient at the worldwide DHG asylum. Stay tuned for more news from the devil’s favourite band”.

Countess - Sermons Of the Infidel - EP - promo cover

On June 17, Dutch Black Metal veterans Countess will release a new EP entitled Sermons Of The Infidel. The EP will be exclusively available digitally through the band’s official Bandcamp site.

‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ features 35 minutes of METAL spread over eight tracks: six brand new versions of Countess classics and two new songs. The EP is the first Countess release since 2011’s full-length ‘On Wings Of Defiance’, two tracks of which are featured here in killer new renditions. All songs are exemplary of Countess’ unique blend of first wave Black Metal and traditional Heavy Metal.

Track List:

- Hymn To The Gods Of Yore
- Trumpets Of Dawn
- I Am The Infidel
- Sermon Of The Devil Preacher
- Son Of The Dragon
- Child Of The Millennia

‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ also marks the return of guitarist Zagan, who was last heard on the legendary ‘Revenge’ albums over a decade ago. His fretboard wizardry adds yet another dimension to the unique musical tapestry that is Countess.

The EP will be available for download in several high-quality formats of choice and includes a printable cover, back inlay and CD label (in pdf format). From June 17, ‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ can be purchased here: http://countessmetal.bandcamp.com/.
