drip with the convoluted pwn
Leviathan is like Weakling, except without the shitty meandering compositions that go nowhere. Check out The Tenth Sub Level of Suicide.
ToW is great too. It's more accessible, but not quite as good.
The only ones that have failed are the ones trying to piss me off

So far, I've listened toEmperor - Nightside, Anthems, and Summoning - Stronghold. Good suggestions on those! Gang, my only real knowledge of BM was (oh shit, I hate to admit this...) COF and DB. Then I heard WitTR and thought that maybe I should check out more, better BM. So, this has been very cool.
My first impressions of Nightside are that it is way more complex than I had imagined it to be, and it had some utterly jaw-dropping moments. The standout for me on a single listen was "A Fine Day to Die". I'm sure I'll discover much more on multiple listenings. I listened in the dark, undisturbed as directed, btw. How anyone can even speak after singing like that baffles me. It almost made my throat hurt!
Anthems sounded slicker, more straight singing, but still lots to love. Nothing really jumped out at me, but that's because I really loved it all. I'll be spending more time with this, too.
Stronghold was obviously very different from the Emperor stuff, but I enjoyed it. Much more atmospheric and mellow. My one issue with it was that the female vocals were pretty terrible. She sounded flat a number of times on these long held out notes, and it was cringe inducing. Other than that, very cool.
About to listen to Abigor - Nachthymnen now.
I'm really enjoying this, thanks for all the sugestions everyone.
Not sure if you know but this is a Bathory cover.
1. With Strenght I Burn
2. Ensorcelled by Khaos
3. Beyond the Great Vast Forest
4. Ob-la-di, ob-la-da
5. I am the Black Wizards
7. Wordless Chamber
Curse You All Men?
Thanks for the heads up so I don't look like a moron. Perhaps too late...
So, I really dug the Emperor. I only have the live disc and WotT left to get.
Also, really like Abigor - Nachthymnen. Is the rest of their stuff up to that standard?
yes. check out Abigor - Opus IV...its in my top 5 black metal albums ever.
I just got into Emperor, and black metal in general recently. I think Anthems To The Welkins At Dusk is their best one.
Tubbs is back.
