05.11.11 Obscure and/or underrated black/death m

Obscure and/or underrated black/death metal albums (pt 1)

A list (in no particular order) of a couple of overlooked and/or runderrated black/death metal ralbums that you need to hear but rprobably haven't even heard of unless you're awesome, tr00 rand runderground. One album per band, no matter how many great rreleases a certain band rhas! They'll end up on another list in the rfuture!
25 Cenotaph
The Gloomy Reflections of Our Hidden Sorrows
24Obtained Enslavement

I had a really hard time deciding whether I should have picked this one or
Soulblight (damn one album per band rule!) but I finally settled for this one.
Expect Soulblight to find its way onto the next list!
22Near Death Condition
The Disembodied - In Spiritual Spheres

Overlooked tech death from Switzerland! Since this one was released like
two months ago so perhaps it'll receive the recognition it deserves in time
but as it looks now these guys remains very uncredited. Support the band,
check this out!
Inside the Unreal
Endtime Divine

I would have placed "Nord" here if it wasn't for the fact that it kind of
overshades this one (but if you haven't checked "Nord" out, do it!!) and
Endtime Divine is equally as good in my opinion but strangely doesn't get
as much credit. Setherial is overall ridiculously overlooked!
Phalanx Inferna
18 Phlebotomized
Desecration of Alleged Christian History

Weird death metal masterpiece with gollum and synths.
17 Ceremony
Tyranny From Above
16 Abigor

Perhaps an obvious pick but remains pretty uncredited overall.
The 2nd Moon

One album per band-rule restricts me from including The Weeping Horizons.
14 Fanisk

Nazi black metal with eagles and drum machines.
13 Drautran
Throne Of The Dephts
12 Inquisition
Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm

nquisition is overall very underrated and made some great albums in the
past that I can't include in this list (one album by a certain band per list!)
and this one is probably their best effort so far. Great to see some
awesome fresh releases! Abbath like vocals are creepy and grvm.
11Thou Art Lord
Cherish The Obscure
9 Covenant
In Times Before Light
8Ceremonial Castings
Barbaric Is The Beast

I'm not usually into brutal death metal but this stuff is really cool.
Never Again
Far Away From The Sun

I was kind of second guessing myself when I thought about picking this
album. I mean, it's not really THAT much of a hidden gem, is it? Most people
know about this, don't they? Well, for those of you who don't know about
Sacramentum, this is a necessity and the follow up is great as well.
Beyond The Wandering Moon

No list like this could be without it. Fantastic vocals and awesome atmosphere.
Circle Of Death

Its predecessor is cool but it kinda bores me somehow. I like thid one more.
2 Protector
The Heritage

I badly want to include its predecessor but one album per band rule forbids
For Kunsten Maa Vi Evig Vike

Probably one of the most well hidden black metal gems. An absolute classic
and essential album in the black metal underground.
