WITTR Announces Two-Track BBC Session Release

On Friday, October 21st, 2011 - one month after releasing fourth studio album "Celestial Lineage" - Wolves In The Throne Room recorded two live tracks at the BBC's Maida Vale studios.

Southern Lord now confirms a special vinyl release of these sessions confirmed to hit later this Fall. The following press release was also issued:

"It seems only fitting that Olympia's earthen black metal expanders, Wolves In The Throne Room, would add their name to the roster of acts who have recorded at the Maida Vale studios, the place where the sounds of contemporary and outstanding artists throughout the last century of popular music have been documented for the ages.

"Wolves In The Throne Room's shadow, cast long and eerie from their campfire of the arcane, eclipses the hordes of black metal clones and drones, hewing raw nuggets of inspired music from rich seams of extreme metal and astral vibrations. 'Prayer of Transformation' and 'Thuja Magus Imperium' are the two tracks recorded on that day, taken from their lauded album Celestial Lineage and spanning two sides of vinyl and twenty minutes.

"Entitled 'BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini,' this session is testament to the band's ability to inspire awe with homespun strands of metaphysical ambiance and painstakingly flexed sinews of metal, and is a must for all fans of the band as well as followers of contemporary metal."

Southern Lord will release "BBC Session 2011 Anno Domini" in North America on November 26th, 2013. The track listing is:

1. Prayer of Transformation
2. Thuja Magus Imperium
