Songs Of Ice And Fire: A Journey Through Icelandic Black Metal

The Icelandic Black Metal scene received quite a bit of hype and love in the middle of the last decade. As with most things, the supply of greatness couldn't live up to the demand. We have a handful of true gems from this scene and a lot of mediocre schlock.

Ordered from best to worst based on my opinion. Listen and decide for yourself.

1. Misþyrming - Söngvar Elds Og Óreiðu
2. Wormlust - The Feral Wisdom
3. Almyrkvi - Umbra
4. Carpe Noctem - In Terra Profugus
5. Wormlust - The Wormlust Collective

The Best Metal Albums* From A To # (C)

This list is meant to be an extensive, but by no means exhaustive, collection of the greatest (modern) metal albums and eps. Running the gamut from avant-garde to trve norweigan black metal. *As someone who is young in age, my tastes tend to revolve around the period of the 80s to the present.* Although certain metal albums from before will certainly be featured, the period of the 60s-70s will be under-represented. I refer you to this excellent list to gain a better appreciation for some of the best metal from that period:

1. Cacophony - Speed Metal Symphony
2. Cadaveria - In Your Blood
3. Caïna - Mourner
4. Caïnan Dawn - F.O.H.A.T.
5. Cain's Offering - Stormcrow

You Know It's Technically 2011-2020, Right?

To explain the title, there is no year 0, regardless of what Ghost may tell you. Thus, the first decade was years 1-10, instead of 0-9. So then it would be 11-20, and so on. But I know that would imply that Paranoid is a 60s album, which we cannot have.

So now that all the cool kids are doing it, here is my top 100 albums of the "decade", most of it might be a bit too mainsteam, most of it you'll find on others' lists, and so on. Restricted to one album per artist/band (including collabs), ordered alphabetically.

1. Abyssal - Antikatastaseis
2. Agalloch - The Serpent & The Sphere
3. Akhlys - The Dreaming I
4. Alcest - Écailles De Lune
5. Altar Of Plagues - Teethed Glory & Injury

Best Of 2010-2020 By Mz

The best of 2010-2019. At the end it tuned out to be less diverse than what I thought it would be in terms of musical genres, with mostly black and death metal record filling the spots.
Recommendations more than welcomed.

1. Sutcliffe Jugend - Blue Rabbit
2. Emptiness - Nothing But The Whole
3. Ulcerate - The Destroyers Of All
4. Schammasch - Contradiction
5. Aluk Todolo - Occult Rock

That Cold Black Magic, By Glenn Killer And His Thorchestra

As is the case with my other lists, this is for my own organizational purposes and is designed purely to help me keep track of all the many black metal bands and albums that I enjoy, since I can't keep all of this information in my head. It has no other benefit whatsoever and will likely result in tantrums should anyone else see it. I'm aware that I haven't listened to every black metal album that I should have. I only went down to the 6s on this list, so it's possible that I have listened to your favorite black metal album that you desperately need to suggest and I thought it was terrible. There are a lot of heinously incompetent black metal bands out there.

1. Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape
2. Sigh - Graveward
3. Dissection - Storm Of The Light's Bane
4. Sigh - Heir To Despair
5. The Meads Of Asphodel - The Murder Of Jesus The Jew
