Wolves In The Throne Room - "Two Hunters" (2007)


Year: 2007
Genre: Cascadian Black Metal
Country: USA
Label: Southern Lord Records

Track List:

  1. Dea Artio
  2. Vastness and Sorrow
  3. Cleansing
  4. I Will Lay Down My Bones Among the Rocks and Roots


Some people argue that there's no place for political lyrics in black metal, and it's more suitable for a heavy or black metal band to sing about ancient forests and the beauty of wolves. Well, even if you're one of these, you probably wouldn't see anything wrong with green anarchist black metal, as it's presented by WITTR and the other bands from Northern Cascadia. "Two Hunters" isn't any worse than "Diadem of 12 Stars", it's still very good atmospheric black metal. There is also an expanded version of this release, including a bonus track entitled 'To Reveal' and an extended version of "Cleansing", but sadly I don't have it.
