The Five Points of the Pentagram, Point 1: Black Metal

Last Updated September 30 2014

A collection of all of my personal favorite black, black/thrash, black/death and black/doom metal. One album per band and in no particular order other than alphabetical. List will be updated semi-regularly so remember to stop by every so often!

The ★ signifies an album that is borderline perfect. Can you find them all?

1. 1349 - Beyond The Apocalypse
2. Abigor - Fractal Possession
3. Abgott - Artefact Of Madness
4. Aborym - Kali Yuga Bizarre
5. Absu - Tara

A Reminder Of 2013's Albums

Albums from 2013 worth being considered for a replay, I'm already having trouble remembering some of them. I'll TRY to order them from the one I liked most to the least.
I'm taking a passive stand to this year's music since I'm dedicating myself to old records currently, so probably 3/4 of the stuff I checked out came to me from this site one way or another

1. Corrections House - Last City Zero
2. Dreadnought - Lifewoven
3. Ayreon - The Theory Of Everything
4. Obscure Sphinx - Void Mother
5. Kayo Dot - Hubardo

My 2013 Likes

Pretty self explanatory. Although I usually forget to keep these kinds of lists up all year so we'll see if I keep this one up all year or forget about this one too after a couple months...

*This list is not in order of preference, just the order in which I add the albums so as to make it easy to identify the most recently added albums.

1. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
2. Amiensus - Restoration
3. Lascaille's Shroud - Interval 01: Parallel Infinities - The Inner Universe
4. Katalepsy - Autopsychosis
5. Octopus - Into The Void Of Fear

Best (the rest, and the worst) of 2013 (thus far).
Partially ordered (the ones with descriptions).
Subject to change, as I see fit.

The curtain call to another fascinating year for metal beckons. Far from disappointing, 2013 is marked by some outstanding releases from various genres, many of whom excelled well beyond expectations. A pretty diverse and intense outing has yielded a very large number of albums to this list, a fact that I take heart from, especially from the more unknown ones from both MS and outside, as many of the obscure findings have truly caught me by surprise. All in all, it has been good fun finding and listening to awesome and diverse music, from both inside and outside of my comfort zone. Lastly, a special thank you to everyone who helped making the list better, with corrections and recommendations and whatever else, and those who made their appreciation felt in one way or the other, as well as other list makers, from whom I siphoned stuff up from time to time.

1. Ulcerate - Vermis
2. The Monolith Deathcult - Tetragrammaton
3. Persefone - Spiritual Migration
4. Witherscape - The Inheritance
5. Eye Of Solitude - Canto III

2. Progenie Terrestre Pura - U​.​M​.​A.
3. Wormlust - The Feral Wisdom

The Best Of Unorthodox Black Metal

Within the past decade, black metal has seen bands from all over the world incorporating new sounds to the style and changing its delivery like never before. As great as the classic acts are, BM bands today seem to be branching out in every possible direction. From the beautiful chaos of the French bands to the psychedelic dabblings of the Finns to the atmospheric scene out West in the U.S... all the experimentation is helping to create a new identity for the genre. So, in no particular order, here are some of the best releases from this growing trend of originality within black metal's foundations (atmospheric, psychedelic, black doom, and otherwise).

1. Deathspell Omega - Fas - Ite, Maledicti, In Ignem Aeternum
2. Blut Aus Nord - 777 - The Desanctification
3. Diapsiquir - Virus STN
4. Glorior Belli - The Great Southern Darkness
5. Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini
