    I very rarely see eye to eye with you on black metal anyway but I get what you mean. I just particularly have been in the mood for it. It's cold and shitty and the album isn't too heavy on the black metal side.

    Been listening to my Nagelfar albums lately too. Fucking amazing.

    Yeah Nagelfar is rad. Hünengrab im Herbst is great. I need to give their other two more listens.

    Just recently listened to all of Torn Beyond Reason and I thought it was really good stuff. Like I've said before, it's like Alcest...but a lot less gay.

    The new Inquisition is easily worth it.

    Also in regards to Lunar Aurora, I would agree Andacht is a bit overrated. Hoagascht is much better IMO. Elixir of Sorrow is my favorite from them though.

    I've been listening to Sear Bliss lately. They have an interesting sound with that horn and all, but the vocals aren't really doing it for me. A little too un-intense if you will. The album I've been listening to is The Arcane Odyssey. It's entertaining, but not great.

    ^ Arcane Odyssey is probably their best album. Last one was disappointing.

    Hmmm I'll have to give that one a listen. I do like the tone and aesthetic, just find the songs themselves to be fairly pedestrian.

    Been really enjoying Srontgorrth since Nagelfar got mentioned in here. Such an interesting evolution from their first record.

    Wędrujący Wiatr: Polish atmospheric black metal in the vein of Drudkh, Nyktalgia, etc. Strikes that balance between melancholia, foreboding and majesty.

    Stick with the classics. Especially when they put out unreleased material:

    Wow really well produced for Ildjarn. Need to check this album out.

    Yeah the whole album is worth checking out.

    Heh. Read your post just seconds after putting on Torn Beyond Reason. Really great album. I'm not sure they will last that long, however. Seems a bit too easy accessible.

    Lunar Aurora - They're awesome. Not pedestrian at all. Andacht and Hoagascht are the most accessible but theyre still absolutely excellent. My favourite is A Haudiga Fluag (split with Paysage d'Hiver).

    Nagelfar - Possibly my favourite band overall. Srontgorrth is my favourite together with Virus West. Both albums are in my top 10 of metal releases.

    Sear Bliss - I really enjoyed their first couple of albums. Then they became too generic and they did not evolve at all. Nowadays I rarely listen to them anymore and their albums are only good for nostalgic reasons. Personal favourites are "The Haunting" and "Phantoms". The atmosphere on these albums is amazing although the songwriting lacks a bit.

    I have hunengrab and srontgorrth. I'm guessing virus is out of print? I haven't heard that one, though I've looked for it.

    Yes, it should be out of print. The re-issue as well. But it should be fairly easy to get it from Ebay.

    Excellent band, one of those I'd point to someone who says BM is a bad sub-genre. Their stuff is superb, I really love their 3 albums.

    If you enjoy WoD, you may give "Kältetod" and "Bonjour Tristesse" a shot:





    "Hoagascht" is a great album, I loved their idea to perform all the songs in their local dialect. This gives the lyrics so much more atmosphere.

    Srontgorrth is my favourite black metal album of all time :headbang:
    I bought it when it came out and still listen to it regularly.

    The "Simple Existenz" album Zorn did after Nagelfar has some moments that remind me of Nagelfar itself, but no project afterwards reached the brilliance of Srontgorrth.

    I gotta say I'm really impressed with Oranssi Pazuzu's Kosmonument. Reminded me of Sigh's Imaginary Sonicscape a little bit, but better. The range of styles on the album was vast, and the vocals really did it for me with its layed-back aggression. I have their first album which I need to give another spin. I understand that a third came out recently, so plenty of good material out there to go through I'm sure.

    ^ Kosmonument is an interesting album, didn't get a chance to check their latest.

    Black Metal splurging on Icelandic bands. This band is incredible. Sorta on the lines of Deathspell Omega.
