I want to get into Black Metal, but I like Power Metal and Melodeath.

    The title kinda says it all, Ive listened to Burzum, Windir, Sargeist, Demoniac, Limbonic Art, Mayhem, Darkthrone, Vried, Naglfar, Azaghal, and 1349. And I want to get more into black metal. Preferably More Melodic and Symphonic, and maybe some Blackened Thrash bands aswell.

    i'll add goat horns by nokturnal mortum. a bunch of their albums are good in different ways, but i'd probably start there as it's their most conventionally 'symphonic'.

    You'd probably like a lot of the Swedish bands given you like melodeath

    Most people on this forum hate melodic stuff, so just in case we're overlooking the most obvious black metal choice for someone who likes melodic stuff, let's not forget Dimmu Borgir:

    I mean, Dimmu Borgir isn’t even that melodic, at least their guitar lines anyway. Most of the melody comes from the keyboards. They’re certainly not as overtly melodic as a band like Sacramentum on their first album. I feel like you’re confusing melodic with accessible.

    Doesn’t matter if it’s mainly from the keyboards, they’re still melodic - they wouldn’t be as popular as they are if they weren’t. Painfully glaring omission from the thread.

    That was awesome, I need to listen to Demon Burger more often. Definitely one of the better symphonic black metal bands.

    Stick to their earlier stuff, then. They haven't been particularly interesting in the past two decades.

    Yeah, the 1996-99 stuff is all I could recommend. I like everything up to Death Cult Armageddon cause I'm a bit of a fanboy, but they're pretty shit from In Sorte Diaboli onward.

    Yeah I'm aware, I'm saying I need to listen to them more than I do, I've heard enough to know where they started to suck ballsack.
