Because that type of black metal is really good when done right and Sunbather is probably the best black metal album in that type ever. Just the right amount of black metal and post-rock/shoegaze so that neither really overpowers the other style, but they play off each other and compliment each other really well. Also I think a lot of people here like post-rock/metal (I think we've had lots of setlist reviews lately for Neurosis and GY!BE and stuff like that) so it's bound to be popular here.
