never really got into black metal, but this is awesome. wolves in the throne room are apparently pushing black metal to new, inter-genre heights, and it works. think epic post-rock, mixed with the best of metal.
it took me a couple of spins before i massively got into this album, so definitely give it some time if your ears aren't tuned to metal vocals, shreddage and pounding double pedal rhythms. it's worth it.
