I wouldnt know too much about the black metal scene but I've been listening alot recently to Bathuska, and the mighty Zeal & Ardor album.

That Zeal & Ardor album is like something I've never heard before, I love hearing stuff like that

Came across this old topic while browsing so I thought I'd post an update.

Of these from my old post, I'd still rank those Immortal ones pretty highly, in fact most of these I still highly regard. A couple of been knocked down slightly in ratings though. Others that would definitely feature in a list of my favourite black metal releases are:

Aquilus - Griseus 
Burzum - Hvis lyset tar oss & Filosofem
Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult - Hora Nocturna
Fen - Epoch & Dustwalker
Hail Spirit Noir - Oi Magoi 
Kvist - For kunsten maa vi evig vike
Mare Cognitum - Phobos Monolith 
Panopticon - Kentucky
Progenie Terrestre Pura - U.M.A. 
Saille - Irreversible Decay
Winterhorde - Maestro 
Wodensthrone - Curse

Black metal is probably my favorite genre at the moment, but I'm still relatively new to it since it was the last metal subgenre I learned to appreciate. Would love to have any recs based on my above tastes.

More importantly, you're a fan of Paysage d'Hiver, Darkspace, and Blut Aus Nord.  Best three bands on that list I'd say.

Recently picked up the Drought EP from Deathspell Omega which is excellent. The debut from Dutch band Dodecahedron is fantastically horrible and worth a listen, albeit not necessarily a classic. Also Riitiir from Enslaved and L'Arrivée De La Terne Mort Triomphante by Gnaw Their Tongues have been getting "rotation" on my ipod recently.

This is a list that I could just go on forever with.  But, if I had to narrow it down to just say "5" albums, this would be a very good attempt (and a hard attempt at that!)

-1: Nehëmah - Light Of A Dead Star
-2: Branikald - Рдяндалир (Rdyandalir)
-3: Chaos Moon - Languor Into Echoes, Beyond
-4: Kristallnacht - Of Elitism And War
-5: Blut Aus Nord - Memoria Vetusta I: Fathers Of The Icy Age

There are so many more that could be interchangeable with the last two.  But at this moment in time, they'd be the last two I'd go with.  LOL

The first two Bathory albums, along with Venom's Black Metal album are my all time favorite BM albums... the Mercyful Fates Melissa is stlll up there too.

They may be old, but they still stack up against anyone out there.  Satan is pleased!
