I'm sure you all have heard about Wolves In The Throne Room. They were the first well-known black metal (not blackened crust) band to explicitly express their support for left-wing politics, environmentalism and eco-feminism. WITTR are the best representative of a Cascadian black metal movement, and they're direct predecessors of Panopticon (though WITTR aren't as radical as Panopticon).

This release is also outstanding in terms of music. It's progressive black metal with a perfect atmosphere, a must-listen album to every fan of RABM!
