"pee-cordings" lol

So the "wait" turns out to be about the same as waiting for any other next release without a highly publicized and controversial "hiatus/callin 'er quits" notice. Well-designed tactic to get people off their backs and lower expectations, or is it them buying into their own media hype to increase demand and notoriety? Or maybe everybody just blew it out of proportion and misunderstood what was them saying, "Hey, we're done touring for a while and just wanna write so fuck off and leave us alone for a year or two, eh?" Whatever. Good that they're doing anything. Wonder if there's still a chance that the new stuff could be entirely/mostly acoustic, or just in some way altogether different from black metal. I wouldn't be mad at the possibility of that.

When I asked them about the newer material 2 years ago they said it'd be like experimental metal ala Neurosis more than anything else. We'll see if that actually happens.

No metal. Not even drums or vocals. Just Celestial Lineage ran through a ringer. Sounds like Wolves pulling an Alcest, only in an even less expected way.

Dunno. Same as with Shelter, I'm still curious even if not particularly hopeful.

It's either going to be the best thing they've ever done or a horrible heaping pile of horse shit.

It most certainly will not be the best thing they've ever done, idiot.

"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."

uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....

Not excite. Not one bit.

I'm all for people doing the ambient sonicscape bit. But why does it have to be bands who are already awesome at doing other genres much better?

Pretty sure this is gonna be another Sol Austan Mani Vestan…

If they had said they were trying for true trance and were making an electronica album, or they always really liked what Arcade Fire's done and were gonna try their own epic indie rock, or just plain completely strip down like a lot of peole expected and do a true neo-folk album, any of that would have elicited a more optimistic anticipation. Right now I am merely curious.

Thing is, Ulver, from the get go, always made huge jumps in style from album to album.

Bergtatt - folky, plenty of clean vocals,
Nattens Madrigal - lowfi Satyricon-core
Kveldssanger - neo-folk
Marriage - industrial/spoken word crazyness.

WITTR have been excellent at what they do, but they haven't shown near the range of a band like Ulver.

I guess low expectations is good, but meh.

I'm five minutes in and so far it sounds like typical 70's/80's Giallo soundtrack but with slower and spacier parts. It's weird that they're still doing it under the Wolves in the Throne Room name, but I guess it's ok.

I remember when I was making music like this 10 years ago.

But eh... It's okay, I guess. That's why I change project names. I don't want to go from electronic/ambient to doom/black metal under the same name. It's just kind of weird. But whatevs... using the name Wolves in the Throne Room will probably get them more money.

Uh... around 4 minutes in this is EXACTLY a song from Celestial Lineage. What the fuck?

Celestite is supposed to be based on older material. The whole point was to steal elements from that and then ambientify it.

After hearing the first preview that came out a while back I pre-ordered it. Does sound a hell of a lot like Vangelis, but I like Vangelis, so...

I'm pretty excited to hear the full thing, though. Been listening to a lot of ambient lately, and this might slide into rotation quite easily.

Listened to it twice today. Good stuff.

30% Vangelis worship, 70% Burzum worship. Only this time it's Hlidskjalf.
