Ash Pool = Prurient = Roman Cross = Devil's Dung = Vegas Martyrs = Cold Cave = whatnot... = Dominick Fernow. Prurient and Roman Cross being my personal favourites from his projects.

Big Branikald, as well as Forest, lover here. The first 7 or so releases (including demos) are top notch at least. Not so familiar with the later releases.

Ødelegger is pure Ildjarn worship but I really like it, I recently got hold of "The End of Tides" and been enjoying it.

Prevalent Resistance has possibly my favourite "musician" (also known from Circle of Ouroborus, Rahu, Vordr, Verivala, Key, Karmic Void etc. = all brilliant!) in it, so that already tells that I revere Prevalent Resistance too.

All great bands that you have mentioned. 'Vordr - I'  is such an amazing album even though all 3 of thier full lengths are amazing but first album beats all.

Check out Emperor's In the Nightside Eclipse - it's essential to the understanding of symphonic black metal. Thumbs Up

Both "In the Nightside Eclipse" and "Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk" have lots of nostalgic value for me. I haven't been spinning them actively for a long time but they are certainly masterpieces, imo.

I'm not a big black metal fan, but i enjoy it at times.

Some of my favorites are Immortal's At The Heart of Winter, I, Ansur's Warring Factions and the latter Enslaved phase.

Immortal's latest isn't half bad also.

Immortal is either worshipped or hated like crazy but they arent as bad or as great as some people say. The lastest album was alright though. Been loving really raw black metal latley and the punkish black metal. Theres quite a bit of nsbm bands ive been into a lot latley but that can really just be mixed in with the raw black metal.

Hate to be this guy..but I personally make a distinction.

Black Metal, to me, is a fairly narrow genre of music. Basically it is the "pure" stuff.
While the progressive/folky black metal I label as, well progressive or folk metal.

I really don't like true black metal at all...in fact there are only 2 albums I actually like.

De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas by Mayhem, and Hvis Lyset Tar Oss by Burzum. The latter being my favorite.

That's pretty much it. In terms of "other" black metal I love Bergtatt, Vintersorg's early stuff (and latest), Drudkh and OM by Negura Bunget which is a brilliant album!
That's the folky stuff! As for the more progressive BM there's always Enslaved (later of course) and Deathspell Omega.

Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer and Testament. The real Big Four of thrash metal!



Listen to doom metal, worship Satan

Folk and Progressive Black Metal isn't as good as the raw bm. Bands like Azhubham Haani, Bilirubin, Ildjarn, Goatmoon, Ives, Vlad Tepes, Karmic Void, Ash Borer, Fell Voices, Roman Cross, Iskra, and Beherit are so much better then Vintersorg, Drudkh, and Negura Bunget.

Primordial is a quite good band, especially their newest album "To the Nameless Dead" is worthy of attention.


Happy new year by the way Smile

Thank you :)

As for the difference of our opinions on Primordial... I'm not a huge fan of black metal so I suggested something from, what I call, accessible black metal. This band used to be quite "true", you know ;)

When it comes to black metal, I really have a tough time sitting through the "true" BM stuff. I really only enjoy symphonic, progressive, and avant-garde sounding black metal. Only a few of the classic old school black metal albums are something I enjoy.

that sucks. youre missing out on a lot of great raw black metal. the symphonic and folk and a lot of progressive black is just over done most of the time

I'm not missing out on it - I've heard most of it and haven't been impressed. Wink

And I agree - most symphonic black metal is way overdone, but I do enjoy bands like Emperor tremendously. Of course, if you have an old school BM suggestion that I haven't heard and think I might enjoy, I'd be willing to check it out. Smile
