Wolves in the Throne Room re-imagined black metal as an ode to rain storms, wood smoke and the wild energies of the Pacific Northwest and are universally hailed as one of the most potent bands in heavy metal today. Now, a portal into their mythic ethereal heathen landscape opens once again with this special 10 year anniversary edition reissue of Wolves In The Throne Room's breakthrough live performance at the prestigious Roadburn Festival in 2008 complete with new artwork by Chimaire Noire.
"Wolves' performances are all about channeling emotions and luring the audience into a meditative state...The songs each contain several parts, from the soaring climax of "Vastness and Sorrow" to the trance-like introduction of "Cleansing," making the album feel like an epic journey through desolate worlds and beautiful landscapes. Indeed, the band cites post-metal giants Neurosis as an inspiration for how their music "operates on a deep and intense mythical level."
"Wolves' music is a very personal experience; there is no fist-pumping, there are no mosh pits, only your mind and the places – majestic, bleak, burned and reborn, that the music takes it. Seeing the band live is an experience that can't be recreated anywhere else, but Live at Roadburn is a suitably fierce and meditative addition to Wolves' excellent catalogue." - Sputnik Music
