Atmospheric black metal from Canada, lot's of ambient parts, two really longs songs, nice stuff. Reminds a lot of Paysage d'hiver.
Falland Vörandi is the title from the masterpiece album recorded by a German Pagan Black Metal band called Hel.
What makes this album very special is, that more than 16 artists joined the recording of it! And so they created a unique atmosphere based on feeling and harmony. Truly amazing and a must for all Pagan Black Metal fans!!!

Moloth (or M8l8th if you prefer) was posted not that long ago by brendo, but I just can't resist posting it with some added material since they're one of my favorite Russian bm bands.
Tight musicianship with excellent composition that just never gets old, but the truly strong point are the vocals which are truly amazing, controlled bursts of mayhem that gives the band that extra edge! Highly recommended!!!!!

The masters of industralized black metal, ESSENTIAL!!!!!
(if you want the whole discography download the Euronymous Tribute because for some reason the "Lost masters of the universe" release omits the "In your grave" song from it)
2004 - Lost Masters of the Universe

Old school norwegian black / thrash metal, features members from some prominent black metal bands, really nice stuff, a must for fans of blackend thrash!!!
Fjoergyn is fu**ing unbelievable band from Germany. They play Epic/Viking Metal on the highest level from year 2003. They have by now two albums out, and it is really hard to say which one is better! You alone have to decide. This band can be not really compared with any other band on this Metal scene. I know, true Black Metal fans will be disappointed now because of this post, but simply, this band can not be missed!!! My highest recommendation for this!

Excellent new band from France, riff-based black metal with quite a lot of old school death and thrash influences, absoultely addictive songs with great composition and brutal vocals, these guys sound like they've been doing this for a long time, fans of Impiety and Axis of Advance will love this, although I highly recommend it to everyone. Essential stuff!!!!

"Kampfar is a Pagan Black Metal band from Fredrikstad, Norway. Their lyrical themes are largely based on Viking Mythology. The whole reason why Kampfar has this special sound is due to the mix between Dolk's black metal roots, and Thomas' classical and folkish roots."

Raw black metal from Greece, razor sharp production, absolutely amazing composition and riffs, great knifelike vocals, this basically eats for breakfast most black metal albums today, really fucking uncompromising stuff. Highly recommended!!!!!!

Excellent band from portugal, started out as a sort of melodic black metal, nothing out of the ordinary; things truly pick up with the second album; totally amazing, unique music, the album is about the Tibetian book of the dead, lot's of eastern elements mixed with some excellent avantgarde black / death metal. Truly unique & underrated band, do yourself a favor and hear them out!!
Some useless trivia, the vocalsit, Bruno Fernandes, is going to do a guest appearance on the new Absu album.
2005 - The Unclenching of Fists
Isa is a newcomer on the field of Atmospheric/Depressive Black Metal scene. It's a one-man project from Netherlands, which started this year. Themes are: Depression and Nature, I specially love this combination! Isa's music reminds me on band like Trist, Life is Pain and these stuff, but the nature atmosphere makes it even though different. I think that you can not go wrong here, if you like these mentioned bands + ambient atmosphere. It can be worthwhile for a try, for me it was...
1. Eenzaamheid - 22:51
2. Isolatie - 10:52
3. Changes - 07:21

Pitch black doom laden black metal, this is raw, ugly and unpleasant music that will gnaw on your soul, nightmareish beyond belief. Just imagine Black Funeral gone extreme doom to get an idea of the music. Can't go wrong, a fucking must!!!

Here's another band for those who love their black metal on the strange side, the band actually labels their sound as "faerical blasting punk" which isn't all that wrong, but it definitely has some black metal elements in it. The vocals are truly queer (for the lack of a better word) and will definitely put off a lot of people, although I find them funny and kick-ass at the same time; the guitar sound is generally raw but clear, the true strength is the composition, short concise songs with excellent riffs; all together it makes a quite unique sound unlike any other band. Adding to the queerness of the band are the lyrics which most of the time deal with fairies, basically everything is shrouded in this childlike kind of innocence. Love it or hate it.

Short ep by this german band, personally my favorite release from their newer era, not really a fan of the last two albums, but this EP really captures the best of their new stuff; only two songs plus a Darkthrone cover. Well thought out modern black metal with really nice occult atmosphere; also amazing artwork on the release. A must!!!

One of todays most original black metal bands, from their early recordings to todays albums they always made incredible challenging music, heavy on atmosphere with truly amazing composition, you really can't compare their music to any other band out there. Also amazing pictures and layouts on their releases (be sure to check out their websites: negura bunget, negura music) Each release better then the last one, this band truly has no bounderies!
