Best of Metal 2017: #8 Wolves in the Throne Room-Thrice Woven

This should be the official soundtrack for the Northwestern United States.  Everything about this album screams constant mist and deep foreboding forests.  There are sounds of a crackling fire, echoing dripping from deep inside a cavern and narration from a grizzled old man talking about the Old Ones and how “We are becoming.”  The whole thing is primitive and dark and ominous as fuck.  This is pretty much as close to perfection as American Black Metal can get.
