Two Hunters is the second album by black metal band Wolves in the Throne Room and their debut album on Southern Lord Records. The band made minimal use of any digital effects or manipulation in the recording process. The album's artwork is by Rachel Carns.[4] The vinyl version includes an extended version of "Cleansing" (which is about 6 minutes longer) and a previously unreleased track "To Reveal".[5] This album was critically acclaimed, putting WITTR on the forefront of the black metal scene.[6] The Daymare Recordings release also contains their 2005 demo on a second disk.
