The band gained a great deal of recognition long after their disbanding-and-reformation, partly due to the unexpected popularity peak obtained with the release of 2012's The Seer. Despite the band members dismissing being or ever being a part of the metal scene, the band's broody, dark atmosphere has proven extremely influential to many extreme metal bands, and are often seen a pioneers of several scenes, such as the slow, depressing post-rock (That would later become much more popular in the hands of Godspeed You! Black Emperor). « hide
