WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM – Celestite (Artemisia)

This album is not really for fans of Wolves In The Throne Room, but more for fans of Tangerine Dream, with the black metal of their last few albums being replaced by analogue synths, droning guitars and Krautrock beats. There’s no real explanation for this volte-face, but I love the new direction, and the five long, atmospheric tracks are superbly evocative. If they stick with this music, they’ve got a new fan.
