Wolves in the Throne Room

When you see the list of influences cited by the various members of Olympia, Washington's Wolves in the Throne Room, you know you're in for something special, albeit brutally so. Swans, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bolt Thrower, Death, plus beloved underground genres like crust, doom, and Norwegian black metal—it all smashes together into a blur of technically dazzling, atmospheric and devastatingly-heavy metal. The band plays Tucson on Friday, so we asked them about the five albums that changed their collective lives...

At 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 20, at 191 Toole; 191 E. Toole Ave.; 445-6425; $14-$20; all ages.

Amorphis-Karelian Isthmus

Classic first album by this highly influential Finnish metal band. Devastating death metal with hints of their melodic doom-laden future.

Neurosis-Through Silver in Blood

What can be said about this that hasn't already been spoken? Dark. Tribal. Disturbing.

Mithotyn-In the Sign of the Ravens

Lesser-known band from Sweden in the mid 1990s. Melodic black metal with Viking-tinged elements.

Rotting Christ-Triarchy of the Lost Lovers

My favorite album as they slowed down a lot and added lots of guitar harmonies. Critical listen and a huge influence.
