Wolves in the Throne Room - Celestial Lineage

It's the new Wolves in the Throne Room junt. I ain't listened to it yet, so you be the judge. They haven't disappoited me yet, so should be bitchin'.

WITTR - Celestial Lineage

Immolation - Failures for Gods

Brutal as fuck, New York- style death metal riff sorcery, recommended by JD. Nice and technical without too much wanking. Get this shit.

Inquisition - Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm

My buddy Ben listed a bunch of records he bought one day, and so I jocked his style and downloaded a bunch of them. This one punched me in the dick immediately. Originally from Columbia and now based somewhere north of Seattle, WA, Inquisition is a fresh take on raw black metal. The duo bring the ruckus with lots of blast-beats and crazy, shimmery melodic guitars, often dropping into slow and dark churn long enough to enthrall the listener, only to ambush you with another insane metal assault. Very unique band in a world of bands beating the old black metal formula to death. My only concern is as a two-piece, I highly doubt they pull off this awesomeness live, but I'd certainly love to see them and find out. My words here are not enough to convey why I dig this record so much, so listen to the jam below and you'll see what I'm talking about. Dig it, and get it.
