    Hi, i am looking for some black(also pagan or viking) metal from my home country.
    I only know the following bands:
    Endstille (know one song, is not exactly my thing, but is good)
    Suidakra (cool pagan metal)
    I heard only good things about a Band called Bergthron, but never tried them out.

    Please recommend me some stuff! I like (non german bands - just to show what style i like):
    Immortal, Borknagar, old Ulver, old Behemoth, Shroud of Despondency, Taake, Satyricon

    Nagaroth. Although they have more of a primitive, raw black metal sound in the vein of Darkthrone and Burzum.

    Moonblood, they are raw, primitive BM, yet very atmospheric and highly revered. Also Lux Occulta. Metu, I agree. Austrian BM is indeed greatness.

    Nagelfar - very good and complex german blackmetal, although I bet you already know about this band (if not: get the album "Hünengrab im Herbst").

    Wolfsthron - Maybe this could be described as a mixture between old Ulver (->Bergtatt) and Empyrium. Blackmetal with many clean vocals, acoustic guitars, keyboards and a folkish feel.
    They only released one album which has been distributed by themselves, so it´s a bit hard to get your hands on it. That´s kinda shame, because the album is pretty good (although it´s not as complex as Bergtatt).


    Menhir - Pagan Metal (a bit similar to Suidakra, I think)

    Dweorgesblod - another band in the vein of Suidakra and Menhir

    I tried Nargaroth's Herbstleyd and it is really great.
    It was a long time ago, when i was impressed by an album that much!

    I am thinking about tyring out Nagelfar, Moonblood and Wolfsthron too, sounds really interresting.
    -And i will buy the upcoming new Nargaroth-album!!!

    In the cd of the magazine 'Ablaze' i also found two interresting bands:
    Minas Morgul, a slightly Guardian-esque pagan/black metal band
    Vargsang, some raw black metal with really good atmosphere

    i must agree on austrian BM being great. Abigor & Summoning destroy all.

    as for german black metal...there isnt many bands at all that i have found to be all that great.
