Celestial Lineage, released via Southern Lord in September, showcases the Weaver brothers’ most magisterial black metal to date, elevating WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM to the highest ranks of contemporary extreme music acts and beyond. In 2011 the band was featured as main cover subjects for Terrorizer, Zero Tolerance and more, as well as being prominently featured in The New Yorker, NPR, Pitchfork (#6 metal album of 2011), Invisible Oranges (#1 album of 2011) hundreds of regional papers and countless blogs and webzines. Undeniably one of the most well received metal albums of 2011, Celestial Lineage is the final installment in a triad of albums – beginning with 2007’s organic opus Two Hunters, segued by 2009’s more aggressive Black Cascade.
