No problem. You're welcome. Glad to be of use.

Edit: NOCTE OBDUCTA's farewell album "Sequenzen..." is all in the vein of a post rock/ambient/psychedelic album.
They started as a raw and pure BM band but had an interesting metamorphosis during their career.


Been on a road trip until today, so this is the first chance I've had to really give that stuff a listen. I'd have to say that Agrypnie's stuff was my favorite out of what you listed, although Imperium Dekadenz are also quite good. As for Nocte Obducta, I actually liked the music from Vorbei and Und Pan more than the more experimental stuff in Ende, but I'm not sure I'm digging the black/death hybrid vocals. It might grow on me, though.

Thanks again!

I feel I haven't given Black metal a proper try and would like to.The closest I've gotten is early In the Sign of Evil and Obsessed by Cruelty Sodom and Viking/black which I enjoy a lot.So I would like some recommendations to get into the genre.I enjoy faster stuff so that is a plus and pretty good production is also a plus.Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

Well, if speedy proto-black metal is what you want, then I'd suggest you go all out and check out Blasphemy's Fallen Angel Of Doom. The production quality is rather poor, but the music contained within is essentially Sodom's In The Sign Of Evil in it's most extreme and most primitive form. It's a barbaric and punishing listen, so I'm not certain that you would like it. If you do decide to give it a listen, then try listening to at least three times. FAoD generally comes across as a blurr of noise on the first listen.

Thanks for the recommendation.I think I have enough proto-black stuff.Any recommendations to help me get into black more as it is now?It needs ok production and the songs shouldn't sound extremely repetitive.They need to be able to play their instruments too.I like pretty fast stuff.

I'm looking for more romantic shoegaze-ish black metal in the vein of Alcest, Celestia, Mortifera and Amesoeurs. Any suggestions?
You might want to try Caïna. It's a bit dark and maybe has more post-rock than shoegaze, but it's definitely a band worth checking out.

I'm also looking for more shoegaze/post-rock black metal like Caina, WitTR, Alcest, and Les Discrets. If anyone could help, it would be appreciated.

Well there's Amesoeurs, which I assume you already know. Also try Fen, Altar of Plagues, Lantlôs, Thränenkind, Heretoir, While Sad Spirits Around Me Stroll, Liar Liar Cross on Fire, Onryō, Feos, Shyy, Líam. The last 4 aren't on the archives because they don't have any physical material yet, they're just obscure bands I happen to know ;).

I already know of this band and it's been awhile since I heard them but for some reason I can't recall their name right now because I always get their name mixed up with Bal-Sagoth. Can someone remind me? They are from Austria.

No problem. I have fallen in love with this increasingly popular genre blend.

Colossal Voids from Fen's new album reminds me of Slowdive a lot, so I suppose it's a good band to check out if looking for shoegazey black metal. I second it. As for the others, I've have check them out myself, so thanks for the rec. :P

Hi everyone. I'm looking for melodic black metal bands. I mainly want dark/depressing/suicidal/sinister lyrics and beautiful and black atmospheres. Preferably no keyboards during the whole the song.

Bands I like: Dark Fortress, Dissection.

Hope you can help me.

Saludos.

I'm a huge fan of death and folk metal. The main reason I don't listen to black metal is that it's not heavy enough, so basically, I'd like some brutal black metal (if that's a genre).

My Last.fm is in my sig if it's needed.

That's them. Belphegor. I always get that name mixed up with Bal-Sagoth. Not a big fan of either band. But it just was driving me crazy what the name was again.

Hi, I'm looking for some Atmospheric Black Metal similar to Sear Bliss's The Haunting. I want something that kind of has that dark atmosphere that still retains an air of hope. Bluesy/Classic rock solos and or horns are a plus.

Here it goes again.Maybe I'll get a good reply this time.What is some good black metal to help me get into the genre? I've listened to bands that are basically black metal with folk stuff so I think I'll like just normal black metal.Preferably stuff that's not too repetitious, is a little fast, has moderate to good production, and the musicians can play their instruments effectively(having pretty good solos is a plus).

You might dig Bal-Sagoth. Go with their newer records.

Ulver's first album is a pretty good album for someone wanting to get into black metal. Although reading your request, it seems as if you may already have that album.

Ok, post back if you found that rec helpful or on target. I don't much care for them all too much but I know they have a decent "fringe" black sound.

Listened to a few songs.Didn't really do anything for me.I guess it seemed a little too power metal-ish to me.I still appreciate the recommendation though.

I'm looking for something like Reverorum Ib Malacht. The ritualistic and haunting atmosphere is what I dig from them and am looking for here.
I would also like to ask about what happened to the 'Demo 08' enlisted in their discography. Are there anywhere I can find the demo? I searched everywhere, but found nothing.
Thanks in advance.

There are a few bands from there that I was reading about in TERRORIZER. I wish I still had the issue so I could look them up for you.

Maybe Tangorodrim? I haven't heard much of their material, but from what I have listened to I gather that Tandogrim is an Israeli metal band that crosses the sounds of Hellhammer and old second wave acts like Darkthrone. They are oddly uninteresting for a band that brandishes such a promising combination. Oh well, I guess old school sound is meaningless without honest old-school spirit. I'd still suggest you give them a listen, though.

Yes. Moribund records released a album of the band 'Ayat' from Libanon. Pretty good album actually, you should check it out.

Narjahanam (Black/Death), Dhul-Qarnayn, Al-Namrood, Odious, Kaoteon, Arallu, Pagan... if you also mean north african countries, there's more.

A simple request:

stuff that sounds like Ulver's first album. So atmospheric and forest-y and a bit pretty, with a competent but no dominant vocalist. Also with some decent riffs throughout, I don't want it to be hugely flowery. As much like Bergtatt as possible.

Does France Bm scene have some bands similar to Peste Noire (especially Folkfuck Folie album)? It would be nice to hear more france bm bands. Which would you recommend? If course, without such well known bands like DsO, Mutilation. Thanks.

Try Forest Silence "Philosphy Of Winter", they are a side projest of Sear Bliss. Fantasic album full of atmosphere.

Try the later Windir releases, no solos though, great song writing with a good production, Sear Bliss "The Arcane Oddessy" or Immortal "At The Heart Of Winter" might also interest you.

I probably should have mentioned that I already have that. It is an excellent album though.

Ulver sounding albums are few and far between. Ones i have found similar are

October Falls - Womb of Primordial Nature
Falls of Rauros - Hail Wind and Hewn Oak
Wood of Ypres - Pursuit Of The Sun & Allure Of The Earth
Kerbenok - O


I find Negura Buinget's Om gives the same atmosphere, along with Abigor's Orkblut, but those are subjective i guess. And I think, generally most people who like Ulver also enjoy Agalloch's Pale Folklore and The Mantle.

I hope this helps, Ulver is a hard nut to crack.

Here it goes again.Maybe I'll get a good reply this time.What is some good black metal to help me get into the genre? I've listened to bands that are basically black metal with folk stuff so I think I'll like just normal black metal.Preferably stuff that's not too repetitious, is a little fast, has moderate to good production, and the musicians can play their instruments effectively(having pretty good solos is a plus).


Emperor!

They fit what you described perfectly. The first two albums are usually regarded as their best. The first one, In The Nightside Eclipse, has decent production, but it is still a bit muddy. The second one, Anthems To The Welkins At Dusk, is my favorite black metal album of all time. The production there is also better than in the debut, with one thing that might turn you off. The vocals are, most of the time, low in the mix.

If your from a more death metal oriented background, I would suggest looking into their third album, IX Equilibrium (my second favorite by them).
