Ambient Black Metallers Wolves In The Throne Room have revealed new details about their upcoming “companion” album to 2011’s “Celestial Lineage.”

The album “Celestite” is pencilled in for a 2014 release although no official date has been given as of yet. However, the band have released a statement detailing what fans should expect from the release.

Aaron and Nathan Weaver said:

“To make Celestite, we delved into the subterranean sonics that are buried in the mix of Celestial Lineage. We isolated them, processed them and took this unearthed soundscape as our starting point. Upon this base we recorded an entirely new album. Some melodies from Celestial Lineage are recognizable, but these familiar sounds appear as ghosts, barely tethered to the original compositions. This new album is an unorthodox foray; a fully instrumental, experimental companion record to Celestial Lineage. We left some work undone with Celestial Lineage.

The recording of that album in the Winter of 2011 was a monumental project for us personally, and the creative fire from those recording sessions was still burning. This recording process was an opportunity to journey into our own inner universe to complete that which needed to be completed.”

“Celestite” is scheduled to be released some time in 2014 by the bands own label Diadem Records.
