Wolves in the throne room-Celestial Lineage
Celestial Lineage is the fourth full length from this band and the third and final album of their trilogy that began with sophomore album. Many bands attempt to create an atmosphere and some succeed and some fail. However for Wolves in the throne room it never feels like as much the atmosphere just flows out of the sounds they create. Putting on one of their albums is like opening a masterfully written book where these other worlds just come to life as soon as the author/creator begins their tale. Like with other WITTR albums you know there are going to be some long songs and you know you will many different sounds worked into the mix. This album is no exception as we get both of those.They handle smooth, lengthy passages with the same enthusiasm as they do the low down, aggressvie, growling moments. The styles support the bands overall sound very well. This is not an album that will please everyone and of course it's not an album you can race through. It's one that requires time and patience to some extent, but it is definitely an album with plenty to offer.
