|The grand Satanic Warmaster ranking|
I think this band is very overlooked on this site, even though its great importance in (raw) black metal - OR even in the dungeon synth community. So I decided to make this list, hopefully inspiring others to check it out. Focused strictly on the LPs and EPs [no singles & no compilations ranked]. Albums in reverse order, with some minimal commentary on the top4.
Gas Chamber (Rehearsal Demo)
[Don't even look at this, garbage.]
...of the Night
This is bit different from the earlier albums with its (more) clean production, and the usage of acoustic instruments - but this is still one of the finest works of Werwolf.
Additionally, 'Silent Call of the Moon's Tempels' is another fantastic dungeon synth track.
Black Metal Kommando
Extremly overlooked greatness, but deserves the podium with its variety. Raw atmoblack, classic raw black, dark ambient can be found here. Crushing.
Strength & Honour
An almost perfect debut. Some parts are a bit repetitive, but the whole package is strong, crushing. 'Night Of Retribution' is one of my most favourite songs.
Carelian Satanist Madness
The pinnacle of the whole discography. Very raw, fantastic riffs, unique atmosphere. An epitome of raw black metal.
Also, the outro track has a great importance: 'Blessed Be The Grim Arts' is considered a classic in the dungeon synth scene, inspiring many artist with its minimal, yet enchanting melody and the usage of vocals.
|Send help, I can't stop listening 'Blessed Be The Grim Arts'.|
|I remember 1 being super viral when it came out. Suprised to find it has below 100 ratings here.|
|The production on 5 is ass.|
|@ Alastor I suppose it's a bit too traditional for this site. |
I wouldn't call SW overlooked quite the opposite actually. ( 300k likes on facebook, so quite some range)
|Amazing band. m/|
|I know, it's quite popular Finnish band - I meant on this site (description edited). Like Alastor mentioned, every album has less than 100 ratings here. Many EPs are below 10.|
|nice. i think 8 is underrated |
|I've only ever listened to 1|
|would be interesting to see where all his other countless side projects would rank here. |
|@TheSpirit, the top4 are all superb, check some if you like!|
I'm planning to do a list about all his splits and other projects as well. But I will need some time for that to explore them all.
|uh damn, doing the lord's work!|
|only heard 1 and 4 need to check the rest|
|just listened to 9 and currently on 8|
