Heavy Rotation

I'm bored so here is a list of digs with reason why you should listen to each.
1Dismember
The God That Never Was


Some seriously good death metal, the vocals are ace and the music is punishing. What I love about this album is that there is some melody in the songs but it is there without sacrificing any of the brutality, a must have for all death metal and melodic death metal fans!
2Enslaved
Eld


This album has probably become my favorite from Enslaved, here they completely mastered their viking metal sound, being epic as ever and deliverying a perfect vocal performance.
3Drudkh
Blood In Our Wells


I just can't stop listening to this album, especially Furrow of Gods, with it's indescribable atmosphere and all of the smaller features such as superb soloing add up to make a landmark modern day black metal album.
4Katatonia
Viva Emptiness


After a bit of time without listening to this album, I finally popped it in again and remembered why I was so addicted in the first place, flawless music here with plenty of energy and emotion.
5Eluvium
Copia


I'm quite fond of ambient, and this is a superb ambient album, it actually keeps me interested and is very relaxing.
6Darkspace
Dark Space II


This band is pretty incredible, with spacy atmospheres and an ambience that is achieved so successfully throught their brand of black metal this is always great to listen to. Highly recommended if you are a Paysage d'Hiver fan, since it is his main band.
7Doomsword
Let Battle Commence


Some serioudsly great doom/viking metal right here. The vocals are fantastic and the combination of doom and viking metal results in a superb album.
8 Forest of Fog
Rabenflug


The first demo release by this band is an all instrumental black metal album, and I have to say it rules. There is melody within the songs to keep you interested and plenty of variation.
9Unleashed
Where no Life Dwells


Another swedish death metal gem, this album is seriously kickass, with great vocals and immense riffs, this is one that will surely become a favorite for me in time.
10Inquisition
Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient


As I have said many times in the past this album rules, the vocals are strange but you begin to enjoy them after awhile, but you can't help but appreciate the very well composed black metal.
11Mayhem
Live in Leipzig


Mayhem with Dead as a vocalist = awesome, and this performance is pretty flawles, and unlike Dawn of the Blackhearts doesn't have any real filler tracks.
12 SIG:AR:TYR
Sailing the Seas of Fate


For anyone who has not heard this album, you need it right away. You will not hear guitar playing like this in many other places, fantastic lead work backed up by some metal sections at times, and at others it is almost ambient, a unique and epic expierience.
13Belketre
March to the Black Holocaust


This split with Vlad Tepes is probably the best thing to come of the LLN. Raw and hateful it is, without being over the top and ridiculous, the performance from both bands, especially Belketre, are near flawless.
14Blut Aus Nord
Ultima Thulee


The keyboard work in this album is some of the best I have heard in black metal, cold and dark without a normal symphonic black metal sound, also the vocals are pretty awesome.
15Deathchain
Deathrash Assault


Kickass, is the only way to describe this, all energy all the time, but with superb musicianship and vocals. Get this if you want something to kick your ass.
