Feast On Virgin Flesh : A Black Metal List

Recently I've been getting into black metal again and here are some reasons why
Sickened By Holy Host

The newest release by these USBM pioneers and they sound more evil and blasphemous than ever - they guys aim to please nobody and create some of the most filthy yet enjoyable black metal in the process.
2Axis of Light
By The Hands of the Consuming Fire

I haven't been into raw black metal for a long time but Axis of Light has greatly helped me get back into the genre. Their music sounds like Cirrhus or Furdidurke except a bit more epic - think punky black metal with longer song structures and bit more experimentation at times.
3Fire In The Cave
Fire In The Cave

Not strictly a black metal release but it resonates the genre very strongly still; switching from bluesy atmospheric sludge to grim, black metal madness this album provides tons of riffs, tempo changes and a plethora of other techniques that keep it fresh and exciting.

I'm not really one to toot my own horn but fuck, if I didn't call Rhinocervs blowing up and becoming a huge force in black metal I don't know who did. To be honest though, one listen to the first two releases from this amazing label and anyone would be able to tell. An all around amazing label and RH02 still remains to be one of my favorites.
5Forest Mysticism/Larmes d'Hivers
Blood of the Woodland / The Fall of Autumn's Leave

Forest Mysticism is the side project of D from Woods of Desolation and is another great atmospheric black metal act in it's own right - they are releasing material this year so keep an eye out. Larmes d'Hivers is a solid black metal act, nothing spectacular but on this split they show their competence.

His best comeback album so far although I have high hopes for the newest.
7Drowning The Light
Oceans of Eternity

Although they started off horribly inconsistent, Drowning the Light has shifted into a great atmospheric black metal force, one that just exudes melancholy and darkness.
8Witch In Her Tomb
Witch In Her Tomb

Although this is pretty much straight-forward black metal the melodies used within are quite unique which makes this brand new USBM project stand out amongst its peers.
9Bhang Khang
2011 Demo

Once again not "trve" black metal but one of the best black metal/punk/sludge hybrids i've come across by far.
10Black Freighter
Graves and Monuments

Riff-heavy blackened sludge, often overlooked but it's really fucking great stuff.
11Violent Ends
Black Moon

My interest in black metal has increasingly grown towards either really raw black metal or punk influenced black metal - this is a a bit of both (more towards the latter) and contains some truly stomping, mosh-worthy moments.
12Circle of Ouroborus
Armon Keitaalla

Probably the easiest release by these guys to get into, it combines the return of their harsh vocals with the excellence and ingenuity of their blackened shoegaze/post-punk instrumentals.
End Progress

Blackened Ska. Think there is no way this can be good? Fucking think again.
Hate Them

I always thought this was the underrated gem of Darkthrone's mid-period.
15Axis of Advance

So fucking underrated it hurts; this has riffs, awesome vocals, great variation and a ton of other great traits that has made this an unsung classic within black/death metal. Ignore its current review, the guy compares it to Amon Amarth and once you have a listen to this, you'll know that he is a complete cum dumpster with dildos for ears for making that strange and off the mark comparison.
