    I guess that I just need to find the right gateway albums. The topic that I made was a good start. I bought a couple of Absu albums and the Master's Hammer demo compilation. We'll see how that pans out.

    No, but I probably should.

    That's a good point, he might like Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism a lot since it has a very Bathoryish sound. If you enjoy that one then move onto Pure Holocaust which sounds different but is superior.

    Weird, it was working when I posted it. And yeah they do have some staff reviewers but most of the metal reviews tend to be by users. I've never posted there but I've read quite a few of the reviews on that site. They vary massively in quality.

    Many albums have multiple reviews but you can only access the "featured" review when you click on the album on the website. If you google some albums it will show the other reviews. It's kinda strange, maybe you can see the other reviews from the homepage if you're a member idk.

    My gateways:

    Death metal - Morbid Angel - Altars of Madness but you've said you already liked this. I knew there was no turning back after this. (I dabbled in some "melodeath" before this, not much of which I like.)

    Black metal - Emperor - In the Nightside Eclipse. The first Emperor song I heard was "I Am the Black Wizards" which I downloaded (I know, shameful, but I was like 16) and I was actually really surprised when I bought In the Nightside Eclipse and it sounded very different. It turns out I had downloaded the Emperor EP version of the song and hadn't realised. I still much prefer that EP version. I listened to this album on headphones while walking on a dark night and was actually terrified at the time. First track still gives me chills today.

    I think the LLN stuff is some of the evilest music I've heard:

    Brenorivrezorkre:



    Mutiilation-Remains of a Ruined, Dead, Cursed Soul



    Belketre- March to the Black Holocaust



    Other obvious candidates are:

    Darkthrone- Transilvanian Hunger
    Deathspell Omega- Paracletus/ Fas
    Graveland- Carpathian Wolves

    As for non-metal, Swans "Public Castration is a Good Idea" and "Young God" are as evil as it gets.

    Helloween's The Dark Ride is pretty dark sounding. Check out the songs Deliver Us and Escalation 666, for example.

    Also:
    Alice Cooper - Brutal Planet
    And of course Painkiller is evil as Satan himself.

    I actually listened to part of one of those Helloween songs and "dark" isn't at all a word that I would use to describe it.

    I think Limbonic Art's "Ad Noctum - Dynasty of Death" is a good contender for this. But really, Windham Hell (Eric Friesen RIP) were just on a different level than most other 'evil' sounding acts.

    I remember my first time listening to Fas, alone in the dark basement. I found that quite unnerving at the time.

    I think for me it was Sarcofago - The Laws of Scourge definitly!
    The first time I listened to it I was fascinated with the album cover art and the ultra dark (erotic and evil) athmosphere on this album.


    Never heard such a sound before.


    From newer albums I would pick Tryptikon - Melana Chasmata because it sounds very doomy and when I listen to this it really shakes me every time.

    You should, just because they do have a couple amazing albums. But they aren't particular scary. Even more to that point, Abbath (lead vocalist, guitarist) usually just sorta pokes fun at himself. He's quite a character.

    One of the darkest bands I've heard for a very long time.
