    Hey, i'm relativly new to BM. I have a handful of albums but was wondering if anyone could offer any ideas as to what is out there. I have a few essentials such as Emperor's In the Nightside Eclipse, Anthems, and Burzum's Hvis Lyset Tar Oss

    I prefer Melodic BM. Such as Old Mans Child and Abyssos. Keyboards are a must for me, as i do not like too much Raw Black Metal. I feel they add a tremendous amount of atmosphere.

    I was looking into the following albums.

    Xasthur - Subliminal Genocide
    Drowning the Light - An Alignment of Dead Stars

    I have also read that Ulver's Bergtatt - Et Eeventyr i 5 Capitler is a masterpiece.

    Are these worth while? Any suggestions?

    Get Bergtatt asap. Also if you end up liking that try some Agalloch.

    For keys try Limbonic Art, ideally In Abhorrence Dementia or Moon in the Scorpio. Or Nocternity - Onyx for something a little more subtle and not theatrical.

    Nice, i've heard dozens praise Bergatt as a top 5 BM album of the mid 90's.

    I've tryed to get into Limbonic Art several years ago, when my ear wasn't as ept. The experience will be vastly different this time around.

    Thanx :headbang:

    Ulver's first two albums (Bergtatt and Kveldssanger) would probably rank in my top 10-15 albums for the '90s period...that's a little excessive for this board though probably.

    Look in the black metal thread. You will see lots of great albums there.

    You might like Catamenia and Dark Fortress if you prefer MBM. Check out The Time Unchained for catamenia and Eidolon for Dark Fortress.

    Okay, I've been reading about Hecate Enthroned lately and this album sounds great, so I'll definitely be looking for it. What others would you recommend?

    Nice, you should its a good album. Let me know what you think of it when you have listened to it.

    As far as any other recommendations, are you asking for other HE albums or just other black metal albums?

    Oh, I was asking just for other Hecate Enthroned albums. Should have specified that.

    Mirrorthrone - sort of avantgarde, but loads of symphonic keys
    Sigh
    Absu - newest album is very melodic and fast
    Altar Of Plagues - not traditional, more of a post atmosphere, but quite melodic
    Antestor - The Forsaken
    Blut Aus Nord - Memoria Vetusta II (YES!!)
    Enslaved - progressive black metal
    Negura Bunget - last 2 albums are amazing
