I think including 5 DsO albums and having none of them be Kenose is considered a sin among Metal Stormers.

Strange Blut aus Nord choice. MoRT or TWWTG would be the albums I would expect to see on a dissonance list. Lots of good things here though. Wondering if you've explored Gnaw Their Tongues at all as well.

If you want some more ideas you could probably find a few off this guy's list: http://metalstorm.net/users/list.php?list_id=3246

The "strange" Blut aus Nord choice is explainable. I discovered Blut aus Nord when they released Triunity, and I quite enjoyed it. I have been going over their discography and, I have to say, most of their stuff doesn't strike me. I will give MoRT and TWWTG a closer listen, though. And Gnaw Their Tongues. Thanks for the suggestions.

Nice.
As Joe said, check my list also if you are interested. I would suggest including albums in genres other than black or death metal also. Granted,these two are the styles that use dissonance to the greatest extent in metal, but it is also nice noticing sludge/ extreme doom/ etc using it.
Plus, major complain about the lack of Virus and VBE.

Departe released a single track from their debut album recently. Check that out if you have not heard it yet. I think it is going to be a killer record.

Their recently released track "Vessel" is basically a re-recording of a track they had on the demo. But yea, I can't wait for that album to be released.

Indeed. Here is another talented one-man black metal act; quite impressive I have to say. Less dissonant, but one of my all-time favorites.

I listened to Exist quite a bit after your suggestion. It's a great album, but I feel that "Down Spiral Depersonification" sets such a high mark that the other songs feel a bit weak in comparison. It seems he has a new album in the pipeline, but I couldn't get any relevant information.

Also, just released, but you probably heard about this one: Sunless - Urraca.
