Wolves In The Throne Room Streaming New Song "Woodland Cathedral"

National Public Radio is hosting the public’s first listen to “Woodland Cathedral,” the fifth track off of Cascadian black metal act Wolves in the Throne Room’s upcoming LP, "Celestial Lineage." Tune in here to immerse yourself in the hymn. "Celestial Lineage" is set for release in North America via Southern Lord Recordings on September 13th, 2011. The cover artwork is available at this location.

In related news, Wolves in the Throne Room has expanded and adjusted the band's previously announced first tour in support of "Celestial Lineage," which embarks at the end of August, and will now run into early October.

my friend reviewed this album for crawlingchaoscollective and we had listened to it together a few times. it is definitely a departure from their first two full lengths. the metal is put on the back burner for a much more ambient and textured sound. however, it is the final piece of their three album trilogy and i think it is brilliant, only hinting at what this band could offer in the future. but metaljus, if your looking for metal from WITTR definitely grab their first two albums and then tackle this one.
