Although a lot of people would probably refer to this as "post-black metal", it's actually way more of a post rock album than a black metal album. The black metal sections are fairly straightforward and good (nothing to write home about), but the band certainly does excel in their post-rock craft, playing some really memorable stuff.
2Mister Heavenly
Out of Love


Referring to their brand of music as "doom-wop", Mister Heavenly (which is a supergroup consisting of members from well known bands such as Islands, Man Man, Modest Mouse, The Shins, and The Unicorns) play a 50's doo-wop influenced form of indie pop with lyrics revolving around doomed love stories. Musically this album is more fun than a moon bounce and I actually really enjoy the lyrics as well.
3Sepism
Distorting the Mortal Visage


Although I rarely enjoy brutal death metal (aside from Demonic Sacrifice and Defaced Creation) Distorting the Mortal Visage is an album I've taken a huge liking to. Musically it's played in the style of standard bdm, I for whatever have enjoyed this more than most other stuff I've heard from the genre. The technical ability is pretty impressive, the vocals split from super deep gutturals and more of an awesome mid-range growls which are used less frequently. While everything is awesome, the guitarists know how to throw in some truly powerhouse riffs that will have you breaking your neck in no time.
4The Mausoleums
Blackened Fawns Cleanse The Earth With Fire


Playing a surprisingly cohesive combination of psychedelic rock/raw black metal/noise/folk/shoegaze The Mausoleums are definitely not for anyone who is a stickler for production; intensely lo-fi, it may be hard to hear exactly what is being played at times but the overall amazing songwriting and just straight weird music on this album with more than likely having you come up for seconds, thirds, so and so forth.
