Falls of Rauros - The Light That Dwells in Rotten Wood (2011)
It's been a while since my last black metal review so I might as well do one for this beauty. Falls of Rauros are yet another atmospheric black metal band, but they seem to have a slightly more subdued approach than usual with gorgeous folk passages a la Agalloch and October Falls as well as solid, doomy riffs and excellent vocals. It's pretty much everything you could ask for from an atmospheric BM band so I highly recommend this one. I'll definitely be looking into the band's other two albums.
