|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.
|1||Wolves in the Throne Room|
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.
Breaks the orthodoxy of the stringent black metal expectation. I’m also a sucker for motifs.
Blood In Our Wells
Hypnotizing. Succinctly captures Eastern Europe’s culture.
Naturalistic and encapsulating. If you don’t like this album, you probably do not like black metal.
Other-worldly, dark, and engrossing. I’m fully involved when I listen.
The Threnody of Triumph
Beautiful marriage of folk inspiration and black metal. The album describes a vivid scene.
|7||Der Weg Einer Freiheit|
Straight-forward without seeming unoriginal. A perfect execution of the genre.
Likely the only sore thumb on my list for its oddity and unfamiliarity. Nonetheless, its chaos and unpredictability keeps the listener wholly entertained.
Exercises in Futility
Bleak, agonizing, and leaves you wanting more. And the drumming...
|10||Blut Aus Nord|
Memoria Vetusta II - Dialogue With The Stars
Expansive, transcendental, and unique.
|I like Deathspell Omega, Gris, and The Great Old Ones|
|I'm a Botanist stan, but understand he's not for everyone. Also really love Thantifaxath. Keep an eye on Aorlhac |
|my thoughts are fuck you this isn't black metal|
|Great list. There's a shitload of modern BM that is amazing. Deathspell omega and the icelandic wave (svartidaudi, carpe noctem,...) to name a few.|
|username checks out|
|Guess I could have mentioned that I endorse each of your picks for the list lol.|
|Agalloch - The Mentle|
|Fen, more like.... Men.|
|Hi everyone. Big Icelandic wave fan. I’ve been digging Misþyrming and Zhrine recently. Deathspell Omega is amazing, but just didn’t make this list, though it was considered. Also a big Thantifaxath fan. I always love checking recommendations, so keep them coming!|
|+1 on being surprised that Deathspell Omega isn't on here.|
|check Macabre Omen|
|#5 ... changed my life forever ...|
|Agree on pretty much all of these being top tier, but especially Der Wang Weiner Faranheit. They are like 1 release away from being GOATs|
|first four Drudkh albums really need to have the original artwork put back.|
|I predict in ~2 years you will cringe at this|
|Still The Mentle m/|
|damn you're not wrong bro|
