But this list needs some Leviathan for sure.


Which album would you recommend? I've never cared as much for Leviathan as for Lurker.

I suppose you have listened to at least one, but I would say give Massive Conspiracy Against All Life another try. It is my favourite, but many would disagree and recommend another. They say it's supposed to be the second Lurker album released under Leviathan's name. I learned that after listening to it, and it might explain why I prefer this one.

I need to give Negura Bunget another listen. Heard it several years ago and didn't think much of it but my taste has changed quite a bit since then. As for Agalloch, I really enjoy them but their best ones (The Mantle and AATG) aren't really black metal imo.

I can kind of understand Agalloch not being here because it's mostly post-rock and neofolk and ambient drone mixed with some black metal, but Negura Bunget's string of "N Crugu Bradului", "Om" and "Maiestrit" is black metal royalty. Also make sure to give Dordeduh a listen, a band of 2/3 of the original Negura Bunget members.

Needs some Botanist and Oranssi Pazuzu, methinks, two of the finest examples of BM's increasing shift towards experimentation in the 2000s and 2010s

I just cannot get into Botanist. Which album would you say is most deserving? Doom In Bloom? As for Oranssi Pazuzu, you may be right that they deserve a spot on this list but none of their albums have completely swept me off my feet, so to speak. I'll go ahead and relisten to OP's first two albums to reassess my stance.

The debut is generally regarded as the most batshit and chaotic, but I think that that's a case where doing so actually works to the project's detriment, more than its benefit. Doom In Bloom and the most recent one (Flora, I think) are far more refined, probably my two favorites.

As for Oranssi Pazuzu, everything by them is great, but it's really Kosmonument that sweeps me off my feet. The most recent one that I just reviewed is pretty up there as well.

The longest track on their new one makes the rest of the album seem pedestrian by comparison.

You're right, that's easily the highlight in my book, but I wouldn't really say the rest of the album suffers from a huge drop in quality from there.
What would be very interesting though would be if Oranssi just did one of those albums that's like an hour long, but with three 20 minute tracks, or something like that. I definitely think this is a band where "longer = better." Some of their shorter, 4 - 5 minute tracks are excellent as well, don't get me wrong, but I always get the impression that they feel more like appetizers for the full meal, rather than the full meal itself.

I should probably listen to that Fides Inversa record, seeing as I've yet to hear it.

It's not groundbreaking or anything. It's similar to good Watain and Funeral Mist. I made an effort to include both stuff on the experimental/forward thinking end of bm as well as stuff that I think does a good job of capturing what made bm great to begin with such as this and Cultes Des Ghoules.

Been listening to it for the past 15 minutes or so. Good stuff!

Yeah, maybe an album of improvisation a la Chaos Echoes. It might serve their jammy tendencies well.

Most definitely. Or just a purely instrumental album, I could definitely go with an album's worth of tracks somewhat akin to this. Always been one of my favs out of the band's entire discography

Haha I noticed that as well. As tempting as it is to just throw one more on here for the sake of round numbers I intend to keep updating as I find new deserving albums. So the number will most likely always be irritatingly odd.
