Customer Review

on 14 December 2013
It's hard to get me excited about metal these days. Everything's been done. Been there, done that. Of course metal is still my main fare, but I tend to gravitate towards old classics.
Hearing this album for the first time put a HUGE smile on my face. I felt I'd been hit by a train, and liked it.
If you need a genre this is black metal. Vocals and drum blasts are pure black. But it's the black metal that Wolves in the Throne Room contributed to free from itself and its rehashed clichés. It's powerful, brutal, melodic, original. Never has an album brought together such brutality (as in power) and melodies so catchy they're almost pop-like. Oh, yeah, and it's also a bit experimental.
It's going to be hard for them to top this album but you know what, it doesn't matter. It's a classic.
The best metal album I've heard this year, and that's putting it mildly.
