    I have a sudden craving for some melodic black metal that I've never heard before.

    My references for what I would consider melodic black metal would be bands like:

    Dissection
    Dawn
    Sacramentum
    Dark Fortress
    Unanimated
    Lord Belial
    Mgla
    Taake
    Drudkh

    All familiar to me, and I like them. Already own the full discographies of Borknagar and In The Woods.

    Thyestean Feast. Kinda Windirish with decent production and I doubt many/anyone has heard them.

    Hadn't heard these guys before, they sound pretty good (what I just heard reminded me kinda of the new Stormblast - fo, I like it), thanks. Hopefully the majority of the songs are a bit less cheesey than what I'm listening to right now but meh, be alrate for drinking.

    Summoning is melodic in the base sense that all black metal is melodic, but it doesn't seem to fit with the kind of bands people are mentioning here, mostly.

    Which would be like me not recommending Gorguts in a thread about tech death.

    No because Gorguts is tech death while Summoning is not melodic BM.
