Best Modern Black Metal

For my own purposes, but feel free to leave your thoughts. I did not repeat artists, though some artists have albums that are on my top list; I chose the artist’s best, in my opinion.
1Wolves in the Throne Room
Two Hunters


Epitomizes the landscape of black metal. To me, black metal is to be dyonisian; to push beyond the limits of conventional beauty to a sublimity that is nearly formless, which this album achieves.
2Agalloch
The Mantle


Breaks the orthodoxy of the stringent black metal expectation. I’m also a sucker for motifs.
3Drudkh
Blood In Our Wells


Hypnotizing. Succinctly captures Eastern Europe’s culture.
4Panopticon
Autumn Eternal


Naturalistic and encapsulating. If you don’t like this album, you probably do not like black metal.
5Fen
Winter


Other-worldly, dark, and engrossing. I’m fully involved when I listen.
6Winterfylleth
The Threnody of Triumph


Beautiful marriage of folk inspiration and black metal. The album describes a vivid scene.
7Der Weg Einer Freiheit
Finisterre


Straight-forward without seeming unoriginal. A perfect execution of the genre.
8Oranssi Pazuzu
Värähtelijä


Likely the only sore thumb on my list for its oddity and unfamiliarity. Nonetheless, its chaos and unpredictability keeps the listener wholly entertained.
9Mgla
Exercises in Futility


Bleak, agonizing, and leaves you wanting more. And the drumming...
10Blut Aus Nord
Memoria Vetusta II - Dialogue With The Stars


Expansive, transcendental, and unique.
