3 stars After an enrapturing debut album - Diadem of 12 Stars - which left communities standing in their tracks. One had to wonder what they could dish out in there second offering; in such quick succession too! Two Hunters was not a disappointment, refusing the stagnant on an already winning formula, they branched out demonstrating why they are one of the leading figures in the underground scenes. The band furnishes their listener with an almost organic sound; often opting for outdoor concerts, openly expressing their eco-spiritual ideologies. Nothing 'bout their sound signifies a forced approach crafting a dexterous follow between the extended tracks. The album winds between, glistening tremolo fuzz, snippets of natures music (at beginning and end), a more brutal but atmospheric riffing, not to mention Jessica Kinney's ethereal vocals penitrating the textured layers of guitar on the latter two tracks. The album lacks the often morbid outlook plaguing the more nihilistic forms of extreme metal, alternatively offering an epic and nostalgic experience.

Really I could recommend this to anyone interested in the more extreme side of metal and those wrapped up in the ever expanding post-metal scene.
