Wolves In The Throne Room

“…untrammelled power and celestial beauty with a finesse that few can match.”– The Quietus

Wolves in the Throne Room have become one of the most potent, highly regarded bands in extreme music. Through re-imagining black metal as an ode to rain storms, wood smoke and the wild energies of the Pacific Northwest, the listener encounters crystalline metal riffs with ritualistic laments: a connecting of the musical and the magical.

When the band returned to the road in summer 2016, long-time touring guitar player Kody Keyworth was welcomed as a full member of Wolves in the Throne Room. The live line-up also features Peregrine Sommerville (Sadhaka) playing 3rd guitar and Brittany McConnell (Wolvserpent) on keyboards and percussion. The effect of the three guitarists on stage is mesmerising, and reflects the dark psychedelia of the band’s work.

“…continually push and alter limitations and expectations of what the genre of metal is and what it has the chance to become.”– The Line of Best Fit
