Wolves in the Throne Room is a black metal band based in Olympia, Washington. They are influenced by Norwegian bands like Emperor and Burzum, various Dark Ambient, Crust Punk and Goth bands. WITTR has often cited American “post-metal” band Neurosis as a key inspiration because their music “operates on a deep and intense mythic level". They have mentioned recently that synthesizer artists like Popul Vuh have been an influence. The band has rejected most of the traditional elements of black metal such as corpse paint, pseudonyms and satanic imagery. Drummer Aaron Weaver has said “Wolves in the Throne Room is not black metal, or, more accurately we play black metal on our own terms, for our own reasons." The band are well-known for their interests that lie beyond the usual topics of black metal music such as radical ecology, bio-dynamic farming and creating a nature-based occult worldview. « hide
