|Note: I like melody.|
|Catamenia- Location:COLD |
Dissection- Storm of the Light's Bane or The Somberlain
if you like melodic black metal
|5 is the only good album here unless 7 is DMDS or Deathcrush|
Like melody you say?
Rotting Christ - Thy Mighty Contract
Ulver - Nattens Madrigal
Ulver - Bergtatt
Graveland - Thousand Swords
Nokturnal Mortum - Goat Horns
These should all be pretty easy to get into and are definitely a big step up from most of this crap
|Ulver - Bergtatt|
Vinterland - Welcome My Last Chapter
Enslaved - Isa
Emperor - In the Nightside Eclipse
Darkthrone - Transilvanian Hunger
|NEGURA BUNGET- OM. |
|with an eye towards melodic:|
Immortal 'At the Heart of Winter' and 'Sons of Northern Darkness'
Raise Hell 'Holy Target'
Enslaved 'Below the Lights' and 'Vikingligr Veldi'(i'm inclined to include 'Ruun' as well, but it's not really black metal; just prog-rock played in a black metal style. so you might like it anyway)
Burzum - any, but 'Filsofem' and "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss' are the prerequisite starters
Emperor 'In the Nightside Eclipse' and 'Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk'
Keep of Kalessin 'Armada'
Arcturus 'Aspera Hiems Symfonia'
Borknagar 'The Olden Domain' and 'Empiricism'
Shade Empire 'Sinthetic'
|No one lists Wolves In The Throne Room!?|
Get Two Hunters from them, it's pretty damn good.
|Mirrorthrone-Gangrene...listening to it right nw and it's get melody and black metally...get it?|
|i absolutely love 'Gangrene', but it's not really 'melodic' in the sense the word's used nowadays. calling it black metal is also a little misleading too - the only way i could describe that is neoclassical music, with its basic formulas derived from black metal|
|absolutely get Gangrene|
if you want symphonic/melodic :
Old Man's Child
|Alot of these suggestions aren't even black metal, Mirrorthrone aren't really black metal tbh, let's face it man.|
Emperor- Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk
Negura Bunget- Om.
Forest Silence- The Philosiphy Of Winter
Drudkh- Autumn Aurora
Cryptic Wintermoon- Of Shadows.....
Storming Darkness- Sin-Thesis
Kerbenok- Der Erde Entwachsen
Belenos- Chants De Bataille-
|Spicilège is the Belenos album you get. |
|listen to 5 and nothing else|
|Chants de Bataille is a little better than Spicilege imo, but those damn interludes get annoying after a while.|
|also, Averse Sefira's last album is simply flooring. it took me a couple of listens to really 'get' it, but now it's easily one of my favorite albums this year|
