Gnarly/Obscure/Overlooked Digs

As the title says...
1Ihsahn
Arktis.


Starting with an obvious one. My current AOTY.
2Carbonized
Disharmonization


Some very awesome oddball old-school death metal from Sweden.
3Vediog Svaor
In The Distance


Again, Oddball psychadelic black metal from France. Still digesting this but it's very damn good.
4Green Carnation
Journey To The End Of The Night


Similar to In The Woods... and completely awesome. But I am confused as to why this doesn't get as nearly enough attention as their second album does.
5Acrania
An Uncertain Collision


Mexican death metal/latin jazz combo, this needs more love as it is very gnarly.
6Dead Can Dance
Within the Realm of a Dying Sun


Just a normal dig here! But I can assure the world that it is awesome. And those who have heard it obviously know. Persephone is the perfect way to end an album.
7Hidden In The Fog
Damokles


Some interesting Progessive Black Metal from Germany, reminds me of Emperor at times.
8The Moon and the Nightspirit
Holdrejtek


Hungarian folk, quite a bit overlooked. Get this if you dig Thy Catafalque.
9Beyond Dawn
Pity Love


Gothic Doom with some horns!
10Cebren-Khal
A Mass of Despair


French Black/Doom Metal. Solid stuff.
11Ereb Altor
Nattramn


Some seriously great Bathory worship. Worth checking if you like also Enslaved as well as Bathory,
12Xerxes (CH)
Beyond My Imagination


Some pretty neat progressive rock from Switzerland.
13Thergothon
Stream From The Heavens


Not obscure, but very neat. So far this is the only Funeral Doom album I really really like.
14Forgotten Silence
Kro Ni Ka


Instrumental progressive rock from the Czech Republic. Worth a listen.
15Verdunkeln
Einblick In Den Qualenfall


Some psychadelic-ish / ritual-ish black metal from Germany. Somewhat similar to The Ruins of Beverast and Urfaust.
16Dropshard
Anywhere But Home


Some great progressive rock, sorta similar to Riverside. Always found it odd that I dig bands that sound similar to Riverside more than I actually do Riverside.
17Ebony Lake
In Swathes of Brooding Light


Some bloody terrifying, schizophrenic avant-garde black metal.
18Confessor
Condemned


Not entirely obscure but some interesting technical doom from the US.
19Ephel Duath
Phormula


Some awesome Progressive Black Metal, short and sweet too.
20Dornenreich
Her Von Welken N├Ąchten


Some great folky/melodic black metal. Prophecy Productions is my favorite label for a reason anyways. :]
21Angizia
Das Schachbrett des Trommelbuben Zacharias


Some hilariously cheesy avant-garde but oh so enjoyable. Also has Jochen Stock from Dornenreich.
22Winterhorde
Maestro


Second album of the year. Some impressive progressive black metal. Just as good or maybe even slightly better than Underwatermoon.
23Secrets of the Moon
Sun


A change in sound for these guys for sure, still quite enjoyable though. :o
24Samsas Traum
Utopia


Bizarre neoclassical/gothic/darkwave... proceed with caution. :]
25Odious
Skin Age


Another change in sound here.This album uses a legitimate orchestra just as Septic Flesh does on their modern work. The songwriting here is VERY solid but also plays it a little safe compared to their debut.
