    Ok, so I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to black metal.

    I mean, I have some of the classics, my favorites probably being Emperor and Darkthrone.

    So I guess I like my black metal to either be symphonic and dark, or raw and cold, if that helps at all.

    And it has to have melody.

    So rec away!

    There are probably lots of threads that already have plenty of suggestions in them, but here's a nice list for you (all on the symphonic/melodic side of black metal):

    Artefact (melodic black metal in the vein of Keep of Kalessin)
    Antiquus Scriptum (a mix of raw/harsh black metal but with lots of epic melodies)
    Akroma (symphonic black metal)
    Bishop of Hexen (evil carnival symphonic black metal)
    Black Lotus (melodic black metal, similar to Borknagar)
    Hindvir (melodic black metal)
    In Lingua Mortua (awesome symphonic black metal)
    Limbonic Art (symphonic black metal)
    Luna Ad Noctum (melodic black metal)
    Negura Bunget (melodic avant-garde black metal)
    Netherbird (more evil carnival melodic gothic/black metal)
    Nokturnal Mortum (symphonic black metal)
    Summoning (really epic black metal)
    Vesania (more awesome symphonic black metal)

    I'm not sure how many of these bands you already know, but you seemed like you wanted a big list.

    If you like Darkthrone, check out Ah Dzam Poop Ek by Xibalba. I'm pretty sure that you'd like it.

    Mayhem is a great band. They might have a slightly American sound on the first records but "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" is great to listen to.
    Also Burzum of course, Gorgoroth and Satyricon are pretty decent too, though their latest stuff sounds a bit odd to me.

    Yeah. Dunno, but songs like Deathcrush or Chainsaw Gutsfuck sound more like that 'garage' type of metal to me, even though overall, they're definitely a black metal band, as one can see on their following albums.

    Well I've heard Mayhem, and Burzum of coarse.

    What I really wanted was more semi underground classic bands. Outside of the well known ones.

    Estrangement is pretty good too.

    ML, try out Amesoeurs. It's not really 100 percent Black Metal but maybe you'd like it. If you do, maybe Alcest would be good to check out as well although it's even less Metal than Amesoeurs. Same mind behind these projects. One more rec: Svartsyn - Timeless Reign. I'm still on the fence with this album but I thought I'd mention it.
