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.
Phase 1-- Orthodox Black Metal
Phase 2-- Technical Black Metal
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.
Carnal Malefactor is godly. That riff after orthodox singing part...
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.
Check out Negative Plane's first album.
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.
Bewitched, Night Conquers Day and Agatus are cool. I'll get to the rest later.
