    Saw Rotting Christ live for the first time this week. I was surprised how good they were live. I only have scattered familiarity with their more recent records, but the setlist, which was mostly newer material, was very strong and has me wanting to familiarize myself more with their recent discography. That said, classics like Sign of Evil Existence and Nom Servaium absolutely slayed. Highly recommended if you get a chance.

    Man that 25 minute track on Filosofem is such a bear to sit through. 10 minutes would've been legit. I know a lot of people think it's a genius trance inducing composition but it really hinders the album imo.

    I somewhat agree, it does go on for too long. It's also not up to the quality of "Tomhet". It's part of the reason why I can't put Filosofem on the same level as Hvis Lyset Tar Oss. I do absolutely love the production on Filosofem, though.

    i've had revelatory experiences with that ambient tune on misty mornings. i do sometimes skip though.

    Personally, I consider it masterful, especially the deeper it gets into the track. My beef with Filosofem is having "Decrepitude," which is the weakest track, on the album twice.

    Absolutely agree the ambient track hinders the total quality of Filosofem.

    Fishing for recommendations here but does anyone know an album they feel is similar in style to Kvist's LP?

    it's the bass that really sets kvist apart, can't really think of anyone else similar in that regard. there's a band called svikt who are obviously influenced by them lol. they get compared with satyricon a lot but that's a slightly superficial comparison. obtained enslavement mayhaps?

    Apologies if this has been mentioned earlier in the thread.

    Abominor, from Iceland. Very impressive.

    Been listening to a lot of Nokturnal Mortum on YouTube to see which albums I want to buy (most of them tbh) and the comments are pretty hysterical.

    "Hey I love this..."
    "Wait I just googled the band, zero support nazi scum"

    It's not like you talk to your real life friends/family about metal any way is it? Will any of them be able to translate anything out of those lyrics? I really doubt both.

    can't let my friends on the internet think I might like something racist because it's racist instead of what it actually is because it's the only contact I have with the outside world.

    I wish there were lyrics for Goat Horns. Love the album and the title track in general.

    I think the title track is one of the weaker tracks on the album. Veles' Scrolls, Kuyaviya, Kolyada are all better imo. Still a great song obv (the whole album is).

    Duuuude nicely done! Great atmosphere and I love how atypical the vox are for black metal. For the long track that it is I didn't get bored once. Ending was tight as well.

    Regarding Nokturnal Mortum, they are such an up and down band. Lunar Poetry is strong, Goat Horns is excellent, and then there is a series of mediocre records followed by the phenomenal Voice of Steel.

    I consider them pretty great in general tbh, with no bad album really, just some really fucking good ones tend to out shine the others.

    I agree with Krow, they have't released anything bad. Nechrist is probably their worst effort with Weltanschauung and Goat Horns topping the list.

    Nokturnal Mortum is awesome. I love Weltanschauung and Goat Horns, the other albums are great too but I haven't listened to them as much. I think Return of the Vampire Lord is one of my favorite tracks from them though that EP was just OK overall to me. I also really love Perun's Celestial Silver, which is on NeChrist, but don't remember some of the tracks on there. Haven't listened to it in awhile.

    Bah, there's nothing inherently wrong with liking music that contains racist lyrics tbh. Don't have to agree with the message to like the art. It's funny a friend posted something to the affect of "I see you liking racist record labels!" it's like is nobody allowed to employ a racist? I suppose they are suppose to be homeless and starve to death or something.

    Been out of the loop a bit. Favorite/good black metal albums of 2016?
