So the new album Two Hunters, has been released for 'bout a month now. I have been slowly letting it sink in over the last few weeks, needless to say I'm quite impressed. I might even go out on a limb and say this one is better than Diadem of 12 Stars. For anyone interested in Metal (particularly Black Metal), this is a must.

I was wondering about this one, having read several very good reviews (I mean they said the album is good, the reviews themselves, weren't terrible... LOL).
 
I need to "re-visit" Diadem of 12 Stars to re-acquaint myself with them, as I've "neglected" them for too long.
I'll be sure to get this one after such an endorsement on your part, thanks for posting this.

Amazing band.  Diadem is stellar, Two Hunters somehow managed to one-up it.  If you're a fan of Ulver/Weakling/Burzum style atmospheric black metal they are NOT to be missed.

Excellent band indeed. The new album hasn't reached Finland yet, unfortunately.

I just got Two Hunters today in the mail, and i am VERY VERY impressed. I really enjoy black metal and this is so black, but it combines other styles so well but not to overwhelming the blackness. These guys are something to watch out for.

I've been rocking both of the albums for a couple weeks now.  Absolutely phenomenal.

Also, they have the coolest band name ever.

I read they're bio on last fm, funny stuff I must say...
 
"Satanism has nothing to do with our vision. It is axiomatic in occult study that we all contain the divine spark; that the earth around us is divine. But what does one do with this knowledge and power? The black metal superman keeps it for himself, sees himself as the god of his own kingdom, his magnificent spirit bowing before none. No god, no morality. Often, this kingdom is his suburban bedroom where he masturbates and dreams of greatness."
 
Interesting view on satanism, especially the last sentence.
 
I like black metal, but only in small amounts, so I usually only get through the first two songs before I switch listening. I'm not into metal for extremes. Though I must say the guitar solo in vastness and sorrow is quite the kickass.
