05.11.11 Obscure and/or underrated black/death m

Obscure and/or underrated black/death metal albums (pt 1)

A list (in no particular order) of a couple of overlooked and/or runderrated black/death metal ralbums that you need to hear but rprobably haven't even heard of unless you're awesome, tr00 rand runderground. One album per band, no matter how many great rreleases a certain band rhas! They'll end up on another list in the rfuture!
25 Cenotaph
The Gloomy Reflections of Our Hidden Sorrows
24Obtained Enslavement
Witchcraft


I had a really hard time deciding whether I should have picked this one or Soulblight (damn one album per band rule!) but I finally settled for this one. Expect Soulblight to find its way onto the next list!
23Miasma
Changes
22Near Death Condition
The Disembodied - In Spiritual Spheres


Overlooked tech death from Switzerland! Since this one was released like two months ago so perhaps it'll receive the recognition it deserves in time but as it looks now these guys remains very uncredited. Support the band, check this out!
21Electrocution
Inside the Unreal
20Setherial
Endtime Divine


I would have placed "Nord" here if it wasn't for the fact that it kind of overshades this one (but if you haven't checked "Nord" out, do it!!) and Endtime Divine is equally as good in my opinion but strangely doesn't get as much credit. Setherial is overall ridiculously overlooked!
19Asmodeus
Phalanx Inferna
18 Phlebotomized
Desecration of Alleged Christian History


Weird death metal masterpiece with gollum and synths.
17 Ceremony
Tyranny From Above
16 Abigor
Nachthymnen


Perhaps an obvious pick but remains pretty uncredited overall.
15Golem
The 2nd Moon


One album per band-rule restricts me from including The Weeping Horizons.
14 Fanisk
Noontide


Nazi black metal with eagles and drum machines.
13 Drautran
Throne Of The Dephts
12 Inquisition
Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm


nquisition is overall very underrated and made some great albums in the past that I can't include in this list (one album by a certain band per list!) and this one is probably their best effort so far. Great to see some awesome fresh releases! Abbath like vocals are creepy and grvm.
11Thou Art Lord
Eosforos
10Ulcus
Cherish The Obscure
9 Covenant
In Times Before Light
8Ceremonial Castings
Barbaric Is The Beast


I'm not usually into brutal death metal but this stuff is really cool.
7Belial
Never Again
6Sacramentum
Far Away From The Sun


I was kind of second guessing myself when I thought about picking this album. I mean, it's not really THAT much of a hidden gem, is it? Most people know about this, don't they? Well, for those of you who don't know about Sacramentum, this is a necessity and the follow up is great as well.
5Aeternus
Beyond The Wandering Moon


No list like this could be without it. Fantastic vocals and awesome atmosphere.
4Slugathor
Circle Of Death
3Dawn
Slaughtersun


Its predecessor is cool but it kinda bores me somehow. I like thid one more.
2 Protector
The Heritage


I badly want to include its predecessor but one album per band rule forbids me.
1Kvist
For Kunsten Maa Vi Evig Vike


Probably one of the most well hidden black metal gems. An absolute classic and essential album in the black metal underground.
