The American black metal band Wolves in the Throne Room came together in 2003 and call Olympia, Washington their home. Members – and brothers – Aaron and Nathan Weaver attempt to hone the “energies of the Pacific Northwest landscape” in their music. WITTR strays away from exclusively defining themselves as a “black metal band.” They use vintage amplifiers, recording equipment, synthesizers and have yet to integrate the traditional traits of black metal, such as corpse paint and the use of Satanic verses.
WITTR are influenced by the sounds of Scandinavian black metal, doom metal, dark ambient and folk music. Bands Neurosis and Popol Vuh have shaped WITTR’s sound, as well as other synthesizer artists. In addition to bringing new sounds and performances to the metal genre, critics are watching WITTR with excitement for their next album.
WITTR have released five studio albums: Diadem of 12 Stars in 2006, Two Hunters in 2007, Black Cascade in 2009, Celestial Lineage in 2011 and most recently, Celestite in 2014 with their label Artemisia Records.
With their 2014 release of Celestite comes a U.S. tour. Many of their shows are 21+, but some are also 16+. WITTR does not allow photography.
Audiences can expect many songs from their original studio albums, Diadem of 12 Stars and Celestite Lineage, along with the instrumental, tentative companion album Celestite. Numbers include “Queen of the Borrowed Light,” “Face in a Night Time Mirror,” “Woodland Cathedral,” “Permanent Changes in Consciousness,” “Turning Ever Towards the Sun” and “Sleeping Golden Storm.”
Wolves in the Throne Room can be seen all over the United States. Some locations include the Marlin Room at Webster Hall in New York, NY, the Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, NY, the Kungfu Necktie in Philadelphia, PA and the Empty Bottle in Chicago, IL.

After their fourth album, Celestial Lineage, WITTR disappeared from the music scene for two years.
Celestite is unlike anything they’ve ever released. It’s a completely new sound, focusing on “hipster” metal and synthesizers.
Instead of using electricity, WITTR wants their live concerts to be fire lit – even if it’s indoors.
