Wolves in the Throne Room-Diadem of 12 Stars (2006)

An absolutely magnificent release; in my opinion, one the best black metal releases of the last decade, and easily one of the best USBM releases ever. Heavily atmospheric black metal, with a huge focus on nature. Every single riff is a winner, and every minute of this album is absolutely gorgeous. Tasteful, very unique female vocals occasionally, beautiful post-rock-feeling moments, beautiful and well-crafted riffs....There is just nothing bad to say about this release. Highly, highly recommended! Vendlus Records.
