Wolves In The Throne Room
Celestial Lineage

Vinyl versjon på dobbel 180gr vinyl i gatefold cover!

Celestial Lineage was written and recorded over the course of the first six months of 2011. The Weaver brothers worked with Producer/mystic Randall Dunn (Earth, Boris, SUNN 0))), Cave Singers, Bjork/Omar Souleyman), with whom the band has developed a close relationship since their first collaboration on 2007's Two Hunters. 3 songs are bejeweled by Jessika Kenney's liturgical choir and solo voice. Aaron Turner (ISIS) also contributes orations to the maelstrom.

The band has said that It is the final record in a trilogy that began with Two Hunters. Syncronistically, It is also the last record that will be recorded at Randall Dunn's storied Aleph studio, which has been the birthplace of scores of groundbreaking records over the past 10 years.

For this release, the band enlisted photo_grapher Ali Scarpulla to create dimension-bending images in the Olympic mountains and around band.s Olympia stronghold. In keeping with the band's aesthetic, Scarpulla relies on unorthodox analog techniques.
