    I'm always surprised when people who don't normally listen to symphonic stuff mention Kataxu good band and a rare symphonic bm band that most people tend to like, Obtained Enslavement being the other off the top of my head.

    Kataxu is a little more restrained and and a little less "horror movie" sounding than other symphonic bm bands, which is probably a factor.

    i always thought ROOTS THUNDER was a bit shit although it's been a while. most of the rest of that list rules though, i'm a big fan of WELOWIE even though it feels kinda half-formed, i'm always searching for more stuff in that style. that otherworldly obscure sounding east european shit is pretty much my BM ideal, remove the human element plsthx.

    kind of an obvious choice but realistically my favourite NSBM band is probably nokturnal mortum. i still listen to them loads and i'm really hoping for that new full length soon.

    anyone care to drop me some recommendations of good BM from this year?

    Try the new AMSG. It's long in the tooth but gets really weird and interesting. Didgeridoo included. I haven't listened to much bm from this year but yeah I really like that one.

    You do realize that "long in the tooth" is an expression for something being old? Sorry. I just hate when people use expressions incorrectly.

    Lol you aren't the first person to mention this to me but I swear on me mum it's used that way here. Maybe it's a redneck thing.

    @Krow did my old AMSG mixtape submission get you into them or were you already a fan? Just curious.

    Actually yeah I remembered that. The band works much better in full length though than the mixtape game. (Most black metal does, I think)

    Oh and the album art...

    I hadn't actually seen that artwork since I have the tape version which has different art. That is killer!

    So anyone heard the new Coldworld? I very much looked forward to it. However it turned out to be a boring mixture of Throes of Dawn's Quickilver Clouds and some hipster nowadays USBM like Mare Cognitum or the like... Add some female vocals and you have the perfect gay recipe.

    I thought their debut was massively overrated and mediocre. It wouldn't surprise me at all if they got worse.

    Pretty good stuff. Livelier, symphonic bm. Has some power metal moments. Definitely a different take on the genre. Gotta be in the mood for this one.

    So I haven't seen Katharsis mentioned here in a long time. It used to be they were always mentioned in the same sentence with DsO. Just found 666 and VVorld VVithout End for really cheap.

    I don't think they sound like DSO much, but they always remind me of S.V.E.S.T, who actually may be better. Either way, great purchases.

    Eh I didn't mean they sounded like DsO. I meant when someone asked for the best modern black metal they and DsO were usually side by side recommendations. As per usual, I never explain what I mean very well.
