Jordan Vauvert Celestite a fait couler beaucoup d'encre et pas en bien. Et c'est bien dommage. C'est vrai qu'on n'y trouvera pas les ingrédients habituels de Wolves in the Throne Room : le synthé, dont la place est centrale, donne une dimension ambiante et stellaire. Pas de chant. La guitare, doomesque et rare, isole du reste du monde. C'est presque dommage qu'elle ne soit pas plus présente parce qu'elle apporte un vrai plus. Une œuvre inattendue mais éclatante. Favorite track: Turning Ever Towards the Sun.

comaunite This album caused a lot of commotion amidst the fanbase of WITTR, but I think that's their most interesting and daring experiment. A bold change of things that still feels like it's within the theme and universe. And I appreciate the nods to the melodic passages of the past albums, further connecting this journey through the vast cold, dark, yet mesmerizing beautiful space, to the mythos created by their past releases.
Bottom line is - like or don't like BM, you will still enjoy this.

cfek Just an amazing example of atmospheric metal that the world should know about. My bones are cold just listening to it. Favorite track: Sleeping Golden Storm.

Celestite sees the band take a deeper excursion into the crystalline synthesizer-driven domains that have long intrigued them. With the aid of producer Randall Dunn, the band unearthed a hidden soundscape that is only loosely tethered to their familiar sound, yet is still unmistakably the work of Wolves in the Throne Room
