Wolves In the Throne Room - Two Hunters
One of the many bands in general I didn't check out til recently, and damn, I have been missing out! These guys create a very creepy atmosphere with their music and have awesome riffs to go with it. This album is the best example of that. The lyrics are also very interesting and well written, a lot of them having to do with nature which is very fitting for the album. I'm bummed I missed them last year when they came to Chicago, I heard it was a fantastic show.
