Wolves in the Throne Room. “Dea Artio.” Two Hunters. Southern Lord, 2007.
As you might have guessed, this track celebrates a Celtic bear goddess. “Dea Artio” actually refers to the appropriated Gallo-Roman version of the original Celtic goddess, so I think we have to dock WitTR points for their colonial collusion.
This track is more post-rock than black metal. It’s not exactly representative, but it was the only track short enough for tumblr’s constraints. It’s great; you can’t complain. Unless on behalf of the Gauls.
