Cool list. Many albums I like in there.
Erik M. - 17.07.2013 at 23:18  
Great list man. Check out mine too if you're interested. I think there's some stuff you might like in them (we both seem to enjoy Summoning a lot).

Right now I don't have the time, but I might give you a few suggestions soon.
Erik M. - 21.07.2013 at 21:08  
Okay, here are a few suggestions (all albums that are worth a 9 or 10 in my opinion):
- Agalloch - Ashes Against the Grain
- Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia
- Dimmu Borgir - Spiritual Black Dimensions
- Graveworm - As the Angels Reach the Beauty
- Limbonic Art - In Abhorrence Dementia
- Progenie Terrestre Pura - U.M.A.
- Ulver - Bergtatt - Et Eeventyr I 5 Capitler
- Vordven - Towards The Frozen Stream

These are all excellent albums and totally worthy of this list if you ask me, so I definitely recommend them.

Graveworm? as recommendation? Wtf? That band is mediocrity personified.

And Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain? That one has nothing to do with black metal whasoever.

Hmmm, but what symphonic black metal bands/albums are good then? I've only heard two albums by Graveworm and the one I mentioned is a great one. And I won't say Ashes Against the Grain is pure black metal (since that's obviously not the case), but I think it definitely has black in it (still, it's highly ambient and atmospheric). What else would it be?
Marcel Hubregtse - 21.07.2013 at 21:30  
Gothic folk doom, post metal, something weird along those lines. But nothing black in there AT ALL

Some nefolk in there as well.

I could hear (neo)folk as well as post-metal, but I don't hear any gothic in it. But Agalloch never made anything that was gothic, not even gothic elements. And (yes, I'm going to say it ) the vocals are typical black metal screams, so saying there's no black metal at all to be found is immediately not true.

scream can be found in other sorts of genres as well and don't define black metal. Black metal is defined by its riffing, chord progressions and such. Most of the vocals on Ashes Against The Grain aren't even screams.

Thanks for the recommendations! I've been always wanting to get into the likes of Ulver, Limbronic Art and exploring Arcturus a lot more.
It's been a very long while since I've properly updated this list, and a lot of BM albums that I feel need to be added in that time, I maybe should get onto that ^-^.
