Looking for very atmospheric/spacey black metal in the vein of Darkspace and Carcharoth Λ.V.. Also similar to Paysage d'Hiver, Vinterriket, Battle Dagorath, the track "Hin" by Trist (de), Midnight Odyssey and ColdWorld. But stuff that sounds like this mostly: http://youtu.be/RIRRg4O7_IE?t=7m29s


I see, try Darkness from the u.k. especially the full length He is not space themed but they remind me of Darkspace.

Looking to explore the Black Metal genre more.

All ive heard/got so far is Emperor (the 4 studio albums + Wrath of the Tyrant), Dimmu Borgir (everything between Enthrone Darkness Triumphant and In Sorte Diaboli) and Satyricon (the newest 3)

Looking into getting into the likes of Immortal, Bathory, Celtic Frost and so on. Heard one the songs from Darkthrone's new album and thought that sounded really good.

So best starting points? Albums that are a must listen? Bands worth checking out?

preferably looking for stuff like Emperor and Dimmu Borgir (not named CoF, that vocalist annoys the shit out of me)


Here are some of my favorite bands that I suggest for any black metal noob:

Norway:
Gorgoroth
Urgehal (Later albums)

Poland:
Mgla
Besatt

Ukraine:
Drudkh
Lutomysl

Germany:
Endstille
Nargaroth
Odal

Finland:
Azaghal
Horna/Sargeist/Behexen (all 3 of these bands share members)
Vitsaus
Satanic Warmaster

Sweden:
Arckanum
Svartsyn

USA:
Inquisition
Judas Iscariot
Pact (new and awesome band)

Misc:
Sad (Greece)
Mourning Forest (France)
Folkvang (Belarus)

That's just off the top of my head, but that's a lot... good luck \m/

EDIT: I forgot Netherlands: Lugubre, Cirith Gorgor, Zwartplaag! haha



Cheers for the response mate, checked out 2 so far, Gorgorth (who i didnt like at all), Drudkh (who definitely got a thumbs up, kinda the stuff im looking for) and a band not listed there in Sacramentium (who were also very good).

Yeah about Gorgorth, i really dont like the very raw sound it has (i checked out "Under the Sign of Hell"), to me it just seemed to be a wall of noise (the drums were St.Anger level bad in terms of sound) and abit hard to hear what was going on as far as the music is concerned. Ran into the same problem when i checked out early Darkthrone after being impressed with the track "Leave No Cross Unturned"

Having said that is there anything on that list now i should avoid?

Under the Sign of Hell can be a little inhospitable sounding to the black metal newbie, although it's mostly just the drums in Revelation of Doom. Pentagram and Antichrist are much tidier sounds wise, perhaps you'd like them?

Well Under the Sign of Hell is one of my favorite albums, but I can understand where you are coming from... They did a rerecording of it which is a lot cleaner, but lacks the overall feeling the original album had. Drudkh is kind of a unique band, but I would say check out Folkvang, Mgla, Urgehal's last 2 albums, Sargeist - Let the Devil In, Arckanum's last few albums, Odal, and definitely Lutomysl. You might like Behexen's newer stuff even though I find their earlier, more raw stuff far superior. All those other bands I think are still worth giving a listen, try their newest releases first if you don't like rough production. Blodsrit and Taake are two more you should check out. You'd also probably like Immortal - At the Heart of Winter although I always assume everyone's already heard this... I like Pure Holocaust and Battles in the north though.

^ If you guys enjoy Drudkh you show check out AX , in particular his 'Glare of Autumn' ep. The closest thing you will find to 'Autumn Aurora'.

Do you guys know any bands making similar music to Aptorian Demon / Mare / Kaosritual / Dark Sonority / One Tail, One Head? I realize that the bands I mentioned differ, although they kind of deliver a similar obscure vibe and have lots of "orthodox black metal" (sorry about that term) elements to them, so that's why I put them next to each other. Do you have any recommendations?

Check out their labelmates and side projects. I recommend you Saligia, Flagellant and Chaos Invocation. Check out the latest album by Kadotus, it seems to be influenced by some Trondheim bands. Check out Sarath and Min Kniv if you're into melodic and atmospheric stuff.

Edit: I just checked out Horde of Hel's second album, Likdagg. You might enjoy it. I'd advise against checking out the debut first. Don't let the reviews taunt you, they haven't actually listened to the album or hate black metal (or alternatively it's going to get much, much worse - Herrens Tid is a great song in my opinion)


Saligia is just great, I love the music. Too bad the only thing they've got is a vinyl edition of the newest album - I usually buy CD's... Do you mean the swedish Flagellant or the german one? Chaos Invocation is sort of 50/50 for me, because I loved the tracks from the newest album Black Mirror Hours while the '07 one In Bloodline with the Snake wasn't all that good in my opinion. Oh, and I did like Kadotus - I mean they're not really innovators in their field or anything, but then again that wasn't what I was looking for. So many thanks for you recommendations, they were actually brilliant! I'm gonna look for CD's of those bands very soon. If you happen to have any more thoughts on that subject please let me know.

No problem.

I only know the Swedish Flagellant, so that one. I don't really buy vinyl either. Besides the LP, there's only Spotify.

Tortorum might also fit the bill. World Terror Committee is selling their album as vinyl and digital album, didn't look further to see if there's a CD. While I like them, they're not the highest band on my lenghty 'to buy' list.

There are a few Finnish bands at least tangentially similar to Kadotus. One you might probably like, since you had those rawer, thrashier ones in your original list, is Uncreation's Dawn. Start with Lightning Hammer Falls, preferably. There's Warloghe, which is fairly grim, but not without melody. Again, first full-length recommended. Teloch is something like Kadotus' debut - fairly melodic riffs, moderately raw, not overly grim or aggressive.

I know what you mean, I'm unable to buy CD's as fast as I add them to my wish list, so it's grown to like a 100 albums... Both Uncreation's Dawn and Warloghe is good stuff. Nevertheless, Tortorum beats them both, I love their only abum, even if the cover is a bit cliché - but nevermind, because the music is just done just the way I like. I didn't like Teloch all that much though and I don't even know why - like you stated it is actually similar in parts to Kadotus, which you previously recommended, but somehow I just can't get into them (on the first try, that is). BTW wow, it seems like you know tons of some pretty obscure bands - and lots of them are really good. Thanks again!

I suppose you like the more aggressive stuff then, since Teloch is definitely mellower than the rest, even Kadotus.

Glad you liked the stuff. I've been into black metal for a while, and as awesome the second wave classics are, at some point one begins to crave something new, even if it's not in any way novel. Last rec: check out Cornigr, it's sort of that aggressive sound without the Swedish orthodox clichés.

Hello everyone. Im new here to this forum and Black metal in general. actually im fairly new to rock/metal lol... I started off a few years listening to screamo when i was young (yeah i know screamo sucks) but ive always been a heavy Slipknot fan for awhile. I was wondering if someone can start me off on some Black metal for a beginner. Ive been listening to Revenge- Infiltration.Downfall.Death for a month or so and I love the album.
The only two black metal bands i listen to are: Revenge and Abigor.
Please recommend some bands.
I like aggressive dark metal btw

thanks

So most of my black metal is atmosphere driven. I'd like something with more concise song structures (by black metal standards of course) and more in your face riffing.

But still atmospheric? This is not my favoured specialty but I've been enjoying Sear Bliss a lot lately! Their 2004 and 2007 albums are pretty awesome.

I couldn't agree more. And I just ordered Cornigr's Relics of Inner War from Barghest web store. Amazing stuff, and even more so considering it's a one-man project. Many thanks again Ilwhyan, this was really to-the-point and helpful.

I just ordered "Flagellant - Monuments" along with the album cover shirt because their logo and cover art looks so badass, and I will be ordering their new album on March 1st. Now I need to check out Kadotus and Cornigr, but I need to stop buying so many damn CDs for a bit! Thanks to Ilwhyan for some great suggestions when I thought I already knew all the awesome bands out there \m/

I totally agree with you on that. Very good band.

ColdWorld is also similar.

So the new Cultes des Ghoules (and, after checking it out, earlier Cultes des Ghoules) has terrified and blown me away in equal measure, what other bands are there that play a similar cavernously heavy, unhinged, creepy-ass black metal?

The only Ukrainian/Russian bands I listen to are:

Lutomysl (favorite)
Old Wainds - Very good
Lucifugum - You will like them if you're fucked in the head (I like them)

You've probably heard of these, but that's all I got for now.

I too am interested to hear what Das Tor is like, knowing inside it will be fucking excellent!! As for the self titled you wont go wrong with it at all bloodycumshit, one of his best releases imo. I also have to admit that Einsamkeit is quickly becoming my favourite ambient release of his, and may just replace Die Festung in the top spot. The atmosphere just sucks the life out of you, quite a musical journey.

Checked out a few tracks and from what I heard this is 100% death metal, not the type I would usually listen to mind you, dont think I could get into these guys.

Are you looking only for Ukraine/Russian bands? Or for certain vocal style? All of these bands have a pretty harsh vocal style and some amazing music all around, they are also not very well known.

Permafrost (Germany) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_N0F1RGwzI&list=PL6E42A48DB872CDEC

Luror (also Germany) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQ0CUMZe9WQ

Hey, could you guys rec me some black metal Bands that make ample use of vintage synthesizers and keyboards? Things like the minimoog? I really love vintage synths(I'm saving up for my own now) and I already Play and love the keyboard and I love Black metal but I havent listened to much bm with those instruments and would to hear it? Thanks in advance guys!


Check out Verge's side of the Verge/Blood Red Fog split "Because It's Wrong". Rough black metal with a 70s church-organ on some songs. The first track ("Spiritual Promiscuity") is exemplary.

Thanks Zodijackyl I'm checking out what songs I can find from it now but I can't seem to find many. Is it worth buying in your opinion?

So most of my black metal is atmosphere driven. I'd like something with more concise song structures (by black metal standards of course) and more in your face riffing.

Finnish black metal is what you need. I'm kind of having a mental block here but Bekhira and Warloghe come to mind. Ilwhyan should me with you shortly.

Nattfog, Sargueist or Baptism are good examples of what you're looking for. Concise songwriting while still maintaining a good atmospheric sound.

You've been listening! That's mine and Ilwhyan's favorite bands to rec people, respectively! :)
