The genre term being tossed around to describe Wolves in the Throne Room is Cascadian Metal, and I think that label fits them very well. When you listen to one of their albums you get a heavy dose of accents and audible images of trees, moss, plants, wildlife, and huge cascades all wrapped a style of metal that builds and builds upon itself creating dense and cascading moods and images. It’s the kind of metal that you can really lose yourself in as the music has the ability to put the listener into a sort of meditative trance. If forests listened to metal, Wolves in the Throne Room would be one of their favorite bands.
