As the Wolves Died is a solid release and fourth album from Germany's Nachtfalke. With this one band, the legacies of Bathory and Moonblood are carried on with pride and honour. The sound is unique, in that I have not heard any other band mix these styles. Rather than taking the folk-based approach and making something light and weak, Occulta Mors keeps his music rooted in Black Metal, never forgetting where he came from. This is an essential release for fans of this band or the style in general.
