Black Metal For Beginners

Here is a list of bands I've been listening since I started listening more black metal this year. I've never been much into black metal but I've found a good number of more melodic and atmospheric bands. Some of the bands are more black metal and some less but the element is there. I've also listed my favorite album of the bands. Bands aren't in any particular order. My favorites are at the top but new bands will be added to the bottom of the list.

1. Summoning - Stronghold
2. Moonsorrow - Jumalten Aika
3. Windir - 1184
4. Zornheym - Where Hatred Dwells and Darkness Reigns
5. Obsidian Gate - The Nightspectral Voyage

Magical Albums

Good musical pieces are those that initiate an emotional reaction or a subconscious shift of your subjective perception. The best music are those that elicit the most positive or dramatic of changes to our psyches. This is a list that I return to occasionally for these effects.

It is subjective of course.

1. Agalloch - The Mantle
2. Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain
3. Amon Amarth - Twilight Of The Thunder God
4. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
5. Atoma - Skylight

Current Top 100, 5 Years On

Back when I joined the site in 2011, I did a customary top 100 album list. Every year since then, when I've looked back at it it's become increasingly unrecognisable from my own tastes. Seeing bands I once listened to daily vanish from my playlists, new bands emerge as favourites, and bands even come and go in my reckonings during that time period (Iced Earth, Alcest, even Pain Of Salvation and more certainly peaked in my listening habits around 2011-12 to slowly vanish into obscurity). Now that it's just gone 5 years since I did that list, I thought I might do an updated list just to see how much my tastes have shifted. Whilst compiling the list, I pretty much worked on gut instinct, which was weird as I found myself almost disregarding albums I know I like whilst promoting albums I'm honestly undecided on - it almost seemed to veer away from album quality at times to embracing a subconscious effect the albums have had. Anyway, here it is, plus some honorable mentions that I was surprised missed out.

1. Dream Theater - Images And Words
2. Sylosis - Monolith
3. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
4. Agalloch - The Mantle
5. Protest The Hero - Kezia
