black metal, as the norsk wave started, was anti-establishment. they felt that death metal had betrayed the underground scene and as such they were rebelling by making the most raw, ugly music that they could. albums like hvis lyset tar oss, de mysteriis dom sathanas, and a blaze in the northern sky are extreme metal masterpieces - and they all came out of the norwegian scene. they further pushed the boundaries of extreme metal. they have a very solid place in the history of black metal, and extreme metal as a whole. to say that these albums are "shit" and that "there's no point", you need to be either
a) deaf
b) retarded
c) both.

Fen's new album The Malediction Fields is really good, fans of Agalloch, Wolves in the Throne Room, early Ulver etc should check them out. Here is their myspace -

BM seems to be a hit or miss genre, though to be fair I'm not exactly the most well versed.

Some of the bands sport pretty poor recording quality and are so incredibly "wall of noise" that I can't seem to glean any redeeming musical value from it... I can certainly understand intelligent use of dissonance to create something more than dissonant, but many BM bands seem to use dissonance to make... more dissonance. Darkthrone, Mayhem, Burzum...etc. Now, the more melodic Black Metal derivatives can be pretty great. (I say derivatives because they seem too different to be BM in the purest sense) Agalloch, Borknagar, Windir, etc.

For a Dark ambient band you should look to Nest a band who do a split with agalloch.
