    Not a huge fan of traditional BM, but bands I've gotten into include Enslaved, Drudkh, Negura Bunget, WITTR, Deathspell Omega, Ihsahn. Emperor in the past, but haven't listened to them in years. I just picked up a Blut Aus Nord album, but haven't really gotten into it yet.

    Also not really BM, but related IMO: Alcest and Agalloch. I like the more atmospheric, experimental/prog side of BM. Also the folkier stuff. Always open-minded and on the lookout for other bands.

    Weakling (essential), the gault, ruins of beverast, code, coldworld, darkspace, the new deathspell omega is stunning.

    My coffee is getter less black with time it seems. No bands I used to listen to are good anymore. The only band left is Cradle Of Filth (don't bother with the "isn't BM discussion").
    Immortal..I can listen to sometimes. Earliest Satyricon is still good..when he understood that he should use some folk elements in his BM. DarkThrone will always be a favourite..

    My favorites at the moment are things along the lines of:

    Bathory, Destroyer 666, Burzum, Deathspell Omega, Beherit, Darkthrone, Gorgoroth, Mayhem, Immortal, Aeternus, Sacramentum, Sarcofago, Inquisition, Varathron, Hail, Nokturnal Mortum, Sorcier Des Glaces, etc. etc.

    These songs specifically epitomize the genre imo:

    Bathory - A Fine Day to Die
    Burzum - Det Som En Gang Var
    Bathory - Enter The Eternal Fire
    Destroyer 666 - Genesis to Genocide
    Deathspell Omega - Drink The Devil's Blood
    Sarcofago - Christ's Death
    Gorgoroth - Crushing the Sceptre
    Nokturnal Mortum - Lunar Poetry
    Beherit - All In Satan

    I'm sure I'm forgetting loads

    I think they are part of the charm of the band. I agree with someone else that said they are like another instrument in the band. Some real memorable riffing in there.

    And I agree there are tons of shitty vocalists in black metal (I mean a "normal" person would find them all atrocious), but I always thought the vocals were always the most real...very sincere. My favorite example is Henke Forss from Dawn:



    And had to show this too...though the vocals aren't as loud as they should be, just notice the complete fucking hatred he's spewing, I love it.

    Inqusitions vocals sound... well like a frog mating with atilla - I mean goddamn, put on some heavy reverb if you're going to make that sound, the music seems good though.

    I just thought the vocals were too much like Immortal, who suck considerably hard.

    Putting sugar in your coffee (in any quantity) is always worse than milk (in any quantity). Just for the record.

    ANYHOO

    I like norwegian shit (a bit everything really, up til the latest enslaved stuff, starting in the early 90s) and deathspell omega. The suicidal black I find a bit gay.
