This CD is superb. I have been collecting extreme music in all its many guises for years now and this is the first album for a long time to impress me as much as this one did. It is absolute first rate modern black music. At times bleak, harsh and remote, at others beautiful and majestic, but always totally mesmerising. The production is excellent, providing a dense sound but also perfectly capturing the feeling invoked by the music. They obviously gain their inspiration from the mountains of their homeland and this is conveyed wonderfully by these four pieces of music. If the great Austrian composer Anton Bruckner was alive today writing black metal music he would have loved this. This is absolutely fantastic.

Please rise members of Wolves In The Throne Room. Today is the day you officially earn cult status in the black metal world. Congratulations. Rave reviews have been made world-wide for this band. It's not difficult to see why. Apparently, their style of black metal is heavily influenced by both the folk and progressive genres. Considering this fact, you'd probably expect a certain degree of adventure being shown. If that is your expectation, a more adventurous record is certainly what you will discover on 'Two Hunters'. I'm undecided as to whether the genre description is true or not, but let's focus on the main issue here, Wolves In The Throne Room's second full-length record, 'Two Hunters'. What I can safely interpret is that they have become far more adventurous, a point touched upon earlier.

In many ways, this will be seen as a magnificent achievement for black metal music. This band have come so far since they started back in 2004. Though that is rather clichéd to say, it's true. They have improved in several areas, but most notably in terms of songwriting. In the grand scheme of things, their music is by far more free flowing than ever. It takes everything in it's stride, never exasperating it's audience which may have been the case on previous records. This is where the more adventurous nature that I previously mentioned comes into play.

This side of Wolves In The Throne Room can evidently been seen in the intro track and on 'Cleansing', which is by far my favourite track on the album. It takes black metal by the scruff of the neck and twists it in to previously unseen shapes. This is by far a positive for the band and will certainly help gain them recognition for undoubted experimentation and the ability to change things around.

I couldn't recommend this album highly enough, it will give you goosebumps. Its beautiful, brutal and moving all at the same time and the whole album is like a flowing canvas, different textures and layering of guitars making it very organic. The band lacks a bass player but you hardly notice that at all. The band themselves state; "The music is about wild forests, unfettered rivers, nature: furious and vengeful." and you can really feel this in "Two Hunters". Wolves in the Throne Room use very minimal amounts of any digital effects or manipulation and this definately ties in with the whole ethic that surrounds the band and their work. A wonderful, powerful album.

I'm not into black metal in general, but I have come to be a big fan of certain albums which show how it can create stunning new sounds - e.g. Enslaved's 'Ruun', Agalloch's 'Ashes Against the Grain', Nachtmystium's 'Assasins'. They all achieve this through being less extreme than so-called 'kvlt' BM, even though the albums are hardly walks in the parks either.

This, however, is different. 'Two Hunters' has to be one of the most remarkable albums of the decade: I have seldom heard something that is simultaneously so violent and so beautiful. The sense of dynamics - as shown through the changes in rhythm and Jessica Kinney's vocals, but above all through the amazing guitar work - is incredible, so much so that you almost forget that at times this album is full-on blastbeating BM. You just get sucked in and submit to the power of the music. The number of times I have had this album on repeat all day...

So, especially if you are like me not a massive fan of BM but like extreme music in general - especially the sort which packs a big emotional punch and showcases intelligent songwriting - give this a try. I assure you that you won't regret it.
