    Lightfox doesn't post straight black metal (at least often/from what I've seen) so his channel is not even close to the best BM channel. OdiumNostrum is by far my favorite channel for full album uploads regarding "different" black/death metal.

    I will admit I way prefer death metal over black metal. Black metal is more atmospheric music therefore it kind of gets too boring for me to listen to often.

    L ightfox specializes in atmospheric black metal, and being as it's my favorite subtype it reigns supreme.

    I wouldn't even say "ish" that was complete and total DSO worship aside from the vocals being different. But hey there's a million Burzum and Darkthrone clones out there so I can't really say anything.

    Been digging into Thrall hard recently after liking them for years but never buying anything. Riff driven black metal from Australia. I'm just now giving their third album, based on the suicide forest in japan (something I've always found fascinating) a spin and just like the two before it, I find it to be pretty badass.

    It's stream-able here

    ^ yeah I listened to that album a few weeks back and had fun with it.
    I listened to Sargeist's 'Let the Devil In' the other day and I was really impressed with how consistent it was with its aggression and atmosphere. I need to check out the other albums as they all seem to be regarded highly. I need to listen to some Behexen as well.

    Ooo thanks for the list unknown. Always on YouTube while getting ready in the morning and now could lay my old playlists to rest.

    Eudaimony's debut is truly excellent. Features the former vocalist for Dark Fortress. Check it out.

    I wrote a (positive) review of this demo in which I mentioned they were from Germany and the guys from the band freaked out because I had also reviewed Graveland and Ohtar records. I guess they were worried about people think they were NS.

    But yeah, I really liked that demo as well. Super claustrophobic atmosphere.

    Has anybody heard mutilation rites? They're playing near me in a couple weeks and I'm probably going to check them out, though I haven't actually heard them yet.

    I've seen them live a few times. They are alright, but they are better live than on a c.d.


    This has been really kicking my ass. Ambient/atmospheric BM

    Yeah Avifauna is a really good album, especially the first two "songs" if you want to call them that.

    I've been revisiting some THORNS lately and I've been wondering what's your take on the 'Stigma Diabolicum' compilation. I know it mostly consists of low quality demos and rehearsal tracks but I am actually tempted to buy it. Having listened to some songs on youtube, I totally loved the rawness and the cold, ghostly atmosphere it emanates. Should I go for it?

    I dunno man... low quality/demos/rehearsals/black metal... sounds like a download to me. At the same time, I know nothing about Thorns so don't listen to me:confused:

    Here's what I ask myself why I buy music

    What do I want this for
    a) a collection piece
    b) something I want to listen to

    For demo compilations in general, I almost always stay away. They aren't the original presses so they will never be worth much of anything AND the mastering always differs between the tracks, which makes it a pretty unpleasant listen (in a bad way)
