Hey everyone.
I used to avoid Black Metal for long since I considered BM musicians as "a bunch of monkeys, wearing corpse paints in a dark frost and pretending to hate humanity". Fortunately, some of them have proven to be more than that. My interest in Black Metal is progressively increasing and now I consider it to be one of the most divers metal genres, among with doom metal. Black Metal albums with experimental elements are more likely to appease me. Admittedly, this list shares a lot with my previous lists.These albums are included to indicate my taste in this genre. One album per band, unless the band's album have very different sound .The main aim of this list is to gain recommendations.

Even if I didn't like them... I can be cold-blooded enough to see why people will like them. It's a very interesting combination of psychedelic Black Metal with the odd krautrock vibe going on and the very catchy, bassy and spacey sounds. That kind of combination will definitely interest a lot of people.

I respect how daring and brave they are, but their songwrting is not that interesting. Maybe you are right and my previous statement was not fair. OP is a band I must enjoy in theory but I really don't know what's missing from their ingredients. Their songs sound like long intros but for me, the actual music does not start at all.

This means that 25/30 albums here are in your opinion better than that album.

Not exactly how I meant to word it, but sure. It's a great album, but a lot of stuff on here is greater than or equal to it.

Btw, which ones you think are inferior to OP's debut?


Let's see...
Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
Blut Aus Nord - MoRT (Love The Work Which Transforms God and even the EP following it, but this is just unbelievably dull)
Glorior Belli - Manifesting The Raging Beast (I prefer these guys when they're southern-fried and not DsO clones)
N.K.V.D. - Vlast
P.H.O.B.O.S. - Anúdipal (Likewise, I prefer the one following this)

َRegarding Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors, well I have not listened to it in a while and I agree that it might not be that great. Still love it, but I've noticed that I'm becoming gradually less interested in it.
I agree that Manifesting The Raging Beast resembles DsO, but I love how it is somehow simpler than most of modern DsO, thus differentiating itself from DsO's albums.
MoRT is beyound amazing, my only complain about it is that it's too short. I can see why some people might not enjoy it.
Vlast was the album that made me interested in black metal as a genre, along with BaN's TWWTF and an album from gnaw their tongues. Before vlast, I had listened to some black metal bands and loved them (like agalloch and Arcturus) but was not into more intense formms of BM and those albums I could enjoy from black metal genre were some expectations .Vlast still gets a couple of spins every week.
Finally, Anúdipal is the best album I checked in 2013. Now I consider is as one of my top 10 records, and I've given it a 10. Like MoRT, I can say that it's too short (about 55 minuets I guess). I could be much happier if it was as long as Esoteric's TMV.
