This was sent to me by a friend of the guy who did this, apparently he killed himself shortly after the recording...
(The band is/was from Poland)

This was my absolute favorite album of 2009. Dirty fucking blackened crust with lyrics about the finer things in life, like copious drug and alcohol abuse and werewolves on wheels.

Pretty damn good Portuguese black metal. Musically its an interesting mix of proto black-like sounds (Sarcofago would be a good reference point) with the droning and repetition of the second wave Norwegian bands, a doomy and oppressive atmosphere, and just of touch of groove. It also has some crust feel in parts. Is it badass, yes it fucking is. Lyrics are about horror, death, Satan, and pain (I don't speak Portuguese so I'll take his word for it.)

Surprised this ain't here. Armanenschaft's a Finnish three-piece featuring Albert Witchfinder, who is best known for Reverend Bizarre. If you know Reverend Bizarre, it's pretty interesting, as Armanenschaft plays purposefully raw as hell black metal in the vein of Ildjarn and Akitsa.
This was very hard to come by for awhile, and might still be. Before I ever heard it I couldn't wait to buy it and listen. I stumbled upon an mp3 awhile ago and was very disappointed. Similarly, Hell's Headbangers found this and was selling it for something crazy like 30 bucks. Some months passed, it laid untouched and went down to 17 bucks. The shift in price mimics my feeling, as well as others i'm sure who were excited to hear the modern doom kings Reverend Bizarre had a member doing a super raw black metal band. I'm not saying it's bad, but this kinda purposeful super raw black metal that's basically a tribute to Ildjarn gets old fast with me.
Regardless, an interesting listen and some good stuff (especially the last track which happens to also have the best production).

The second part of Disguster's Esoterrorism trilogy. Staying with the formula set on the first chapter, there are only four short(ish-er) songs. Musically, the first song picks up where the last volume left off, with a d-beat driven punk flavor akin to newer Darkthrone or a less harsh Bone Awl (maybe a Bone Owl?). The rest of the album is more akin to the older side of the DT catalog or to the Finnish bands that draw inspiration from it, Sargeist, older Horna, etc. They also throw a cover of Darkthrone on as well (Quintessence).

With the razor’s slash DODSFERD descends into Black Metal despair bleeding a more destructive and depressive sound on "Suicide...", Wrath’s fifth most unrelenting record to date. A 37-minute journey into the DODSFERD psyche, "Suicide..." offers two songs of intoxicating dissonance, absolute desolation and bleak suicidal Black Metal. Reminiscent of classic era Judas Iscariot, Suicide... is mesmerizing suicidal Black Metal at it’s best.

Apologies all around, I've been stupid busy with school work, work, and a whole fluster other crap.
Here's something a bit old, but I just rediscovered it on my HD and haven't been able to stop listening. Really good melodic black metal from Germany. Dark, but clean production, catchy tremolo riffs and some epic harmonized parts. Reminds me of Dissection without the wank, poor vocals, and it's a bit simpler. Really excellent stuff here. Except the odd death metal track (track four) I have no idea what that's about. I'd like to know what happened to this band.
Apparently banned in Germany for lyrics glorifying violence against Judeo-Christianity. Apparently.

Awesome fucking New England Black Metal.
3 piece from Holyoke, Massachusetts. Guitarist is the one man project Sangre Y Tierra, Bassist is the one man project Desolate Wind.

Painful, Distant and Dismal Black Metal from Norway, with it's etherial, cold and melancholic atmosphere similiar to STRID, FORGOTTEN WOODS and NARGAROTH's most haunted creations. A nightmare passage through depression and torment.

As requested, the debut album of Arkona, released back in ’06. Quality black metal reminiscent of Master’s Hammer but with clear own sound, good stuff

The Coldness can be manifested into different forms in its timeless truth. U.K. based Sanctus Nex are the modern black metal wanderers, their harmonic and disharmonic tunes a current of perception. A trip into usual and unusual shadings starts there, where Black metal is a constant recall but a departure point to develop a new visionary and evocative journey. The traditional black metal instruments are just a gateway to depart from the mortal, the vision is luckily, far beyondâ€¦ Sanctus Nex are the feverish mood of introspection of Deathspell Omega detached from the Judeo-Christian paradigm, walking a different occult path, drenched into the heritage of their island: in pursuit of Albion.
