fuckin black metal how does it work

yo sputnik, i have an issue. for about a year and a half i've been trying to get into black metal, but fuck. i just can't really do it. other than during live performances, i find 90% of the stuff in the genre incredibly boring. is there something wrong with me? do i lack balls? am i expecting too much? amidoinitwrong? am i a racist? do tell me, and rec more some black metal i could i actually like. list is cross-section of bm i have listened to
1Agalloch
Marrow of the Spirit


it could've been good if it had some direction, cohesion and didn't sound so thin
2Moonsorrow
Varjoina Kuljemme Kuolleiden Maassa


meh
3Dornenreich
Flammentriebe


couldn't find anything interesting about this album, i was pretty much waiting for it to end the entire time.
4Lantlos
.neon


i found this really irritating to listen to, there's too much shit going on and it doesn't add to the atmosphere well
5Nachtmystium
Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. 2


thought this was decent, though it lost its replay value after the 4 or 5 listen.
6Mitochondrion
Parasignosis


monotonous, doesn't really develop their ideas and just drags only the same sound for the whole album, what a loooong listen. shoddily mixed and sequenced imo.
7Ash Borer
Ash Borer


i was stoked for this, but it sounds just as weak and uninteresting as ol' agalloch up thar
8Panopticon
On the Subject of Mortality


zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
9Sunn O)))
Monoliths and Dimensions


sunn, i am not disappoint. please continue not sucking.
10Vreid
V


was pretty good, minus the '1 song 9 times' aspect
11Cold Craving
Beacons


this probably doesn't count as it's more like blackened post-hardcore, lots of obvious black-metal influences though. this rules.
12Ulver
Bergtatt


pretty good, a little tedious at times.
13Arafel
For Battles Once Fought


also dug this. THIS IS HOW IT'S DONE
14Burzum
Fallen


this is the black metal equivalent of dad rock
15Mamaleek
Kurdaitcha


probably doesn't count either, as it's very electronically produced... but man i love this album.
16Svart Crown
Witnessing The Fall


who the fuck let these boring hacks record?
17Have a Nice Life
Deathconsciousness


everyone better like this. sweeeeet.
18Woods of Desolation
Torn Beyond Reason


this album is everything i hate about black metal
19Alcest
Ecailles de Lune


this was actually one of the best albums of 2010 imo. top notch shit
20Falkenbach
Tiurida


extremely tedious to listen to. it took me about 4 tries to get through this thing... the intros all start out promising but then it just goes into... meh
