By many accounts Wolves in the Throne Room are the premier Black Metal band in the US today. Formed in 2002 it didn't take them long to secure international acclaim. I personally haven't kept up with the metal scene since the '90s but I do know that WITTR rise above heaps and heaps of bands out there no matter what subgenre card you want to play. WITTR will be touring the United States and Europe extensively in 2009 so hit the show when they come through town. I only really talked with the Weaver brothers but both of them seemed very humble and on the level. Extremely nice guys who support open taping dependent on venue policies.

I'm completely lost on the song titles to be honest. A taper acquaintance out in Seattle asked if I'd be down to check out the show. I am glad I did. Zebulon Pike, Krallice and Empires opened.
