CRITIC REVIEWS

The Skinny
This is, simply put, a beautifully composed black metal record that stands up with all the greats.

Sputnikmusic
I can easily see it lacking the longevity of their other albums, but for now it’s damn good to see the Weavers doing what they do best...screaming about natural nonsense and making some excellent black metal.

The Line of Best Fit

By its end, Thrice Woven not only serves as one of this year’s most promising metal releases, but it also stands as something purely monolithic and even transcendental – a collection of songs, showcasing a band’s evolution that leaves you in full levitation, locked in paralysis, and at a moment’s notice, you dissipate completely wondering how you made it home.

PopMatters
Wolves in the Throne Room has produced a record that might not break much new ground but is well composed and powerful, and it can act as the origin point for the band’s next fascinating chapter.
80
Drowned in Sound
It doesn’t break any boundaries, and it’s not a reinvention of the band’s sound, but it is spectacular proof of black metal’s continued power and effectiveness.

A.V. Club

Thrice Woven might be the most straightforward collection of ragers Wolves In The Throne Room have yet pulled from the misty wilderness of the Pacific Northwest.

AllMusic

Thrice Woven marks the welcome return of the power and dark majesty of one America's most original metal bands.

As the first step in the next chapter of Wolves In The Throne Room’s story, Thrice Woven moves decidedly in the right direction.

Exclaim!

Where once we witnessed the group tilling the fields, Thrice Woven presents the bounty on a shining plate. WITTR still provide a plentiful feast, but the sense of having earned Mother Nature's gifts is diminished.

The Needle Drop
Wolves in the Throne Room make a predictable return to their atmospheric black metal sound.

Pitchfork

Thrice Woven is WITTR deboned. As welcome as it is that they’ve dropped Celestite’s pseudo-kosmische schtick, they’ve come back with a facsimile of what once was.
