    I've always been interested in this style, though I've made almost no attempt to really explore it. I'm looking for bands similar to the likes of Satan, Angel Witch, Cloven Hoof, etc. I've heard quite a few "essentials", but my knowledge of the sub-genre is still pretty laughable, so keep that in mind while recommending stuff.

    I definitely like Brocas Helm, and Ample Destruction is one of my favorite metal albums. I've heard good things about the others. Thanks for your help.

    You should definitely listen to Slipknot's new album! It's reminiscent of old Iron Maiden and Manilla Road.

    Thanks, I've seen a number of those albums mentioned quite a bit, though I haven't gotten around to most of them. However the ones I have heard from the list are definitely great (Nosferatu in particular is absolutely cunt smashing).
