    Didn't have you down as a DsO fan, Krow.

    I didn't get much out of Kenose or Fas and I haven't heard Paracletus. I might listen to this one to see how their sound has progressed.

    Kenose isn't my favorite either but after a bunch of listens Fas is da shit.

    I don't act like they're the greatest black metal band ever or anything but I do like them.

    My taste in black metal is pretty random in general. I tend to like less traditional stuff though, save for Darkthrone.

    DsO are overrated as fuck while at the same time still being good.

    Metal-Archives has this listed as a full length release not an EP.

    Fas and Chaining the Katechon are possibly the peak of the genre

    I've never heard Deathspell Omega. I remember then being very hyped a few years ago. I should listen to some of their songs.

    I was going to recommend Sola Fide I and Carnal Malefactor for him to start with. I don't think the band will appeal to him but you never know.

    The first song is pretty cool. The second song has a lot of gratuitous nonsense, even though it has some good in it.

    feels kind of trite saying it 'cause it's a song so clearly designed to get responses like this, but yeah 'carnal malefactor' is 'kin godly indeed. can't get enough of that shit.

    I'm intimidated by the length of the album that first song appearson, but maybe I'll buy it at some point.

    Can anyone recommend newer black metal that is either closer to old school or has influences from more traditional metal styles? I also want a credible list of newer black metal that is worth hearing even if it isn't in that umbrella.

    Mainly referring to people like @Phylactery and @no country for old wainds that like a lot of the same stuff that I already like in old school black metal and elsewhere.

    Surely the actual 'phase 1' is the style found on Infernal Battles (which is hella generic and not especially interesting) and Inquisitors of Satan (still generic but loaded with riffs)?

    Then there's the Manifestations stuff (which is awesome and seemingly totally overlooked by most) which is like, as the dates should suggest, a bridge from their original sound to the SMRC sound.

    These aren't exactly new but you might not be familiar with them. The first 2 are quite Mercyful Fate Influenced.

    Bewitched - Dragonflight



    Night Conquers Day - Rebellion is the Art of Survival (Their first album The First Snowfall is also good.)



    Agatus - The Weaving Fate



    Zemial - In Monumentum



    There is also newer stuff like Midnight's Satanic Royalty that is like a modern take on Venom. I'm not particularly fond of it, but many tasteful people seem to like it.


    Some newer black metal that I like:

    Panphage - Storm
    Averse Sefira - Tetragrammatical Astygmata, Advent Parallax
    Katharsis -VVorld VVithout End, Fourth Reich
    Nocternity - Onyx
    Primordial - The Gathering Wilderness
    Mgla - With Hearts Towards None

    I'll also second Mutantllama's recommendation of Negative Plane's Et in Saecula Saeculorum.

    Edit: Forgot Mgla.

    Thank you. I have the Zemial album since CASSETTEISGOD recommended it a while ago. Most of the rest is totally new.

    I thought you might have already heard of them from CIG. He's a bit of a fanboy.

    Let me know if any of these appeal to you. I think you'll like the Bewitched most.

    A lot of people seem to cite this riff as amazing. It's my least favourite part of the song actually. I much prefer everything that comes before it and when they return back to that melody after the riff you're talking about.

    I think the vocals are one of the weaker parts of modern DSO. He tries to sound passionate and emotional but fails for the most part imo. I don't think they're bad and they are quite unique, I just think they could be better suited to the music at times.
