Another cool and underrated Norwegian album is "Pure Black Energy" by Tulus. The cover art is amazing. They later changed their name to Khold and started churning out uninspired Moonfog turds.

If anyone has any recommendations from these or similar artists, much thanks!

everyone recommended some top poo poo, but two newer bands who realllllly pull off that cold, norweigian style really well are Cosmic Church and Cirrhus. I've probably been saying that poo poo for a while now but they rule!

Cosmic Church are so good. I hope Ylistys turns out to be some sort of sleeper hit, because it came out towards the end of last year and I don't think it ever really got the love it deserved outside of underground circles. (Unlike Mgla, where WHTN put their name on everyone's lips). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QhvV1nmdjk

Speaking of which: listen to Mgla because holy gently caress https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHfUsIm0z28 Modern black metal anthem right there.

I, as I'm sure many people have, got into black metal through Agalloch. As such, I've only really listened to atmospheric stuff from this century (read: fvlse kvlt), that is, until now. I'm going through the classics.


Don't worry, I'm not too big on the new Agalloch either. BUT, I can recommend some other stuff in that vein.

Wolves in the Throne Room - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTnfzWehaGg

Anyone have reccomendations for that more melodic depressive black metal? Think along the lines of Happy Days

I'm gonna go ahead and quote myself:

quote:

Trist is hypnotic and extremely captivating. You could also look into Hypothermia, Life Is Pain (collaboration between the guys behind Hypothermia and Trist. Awful name but they released a great demo), Abyssic Hate, Silencer, Thy Light, Nyktalgia, Sterbend, Forgotten Tomb, Austere, Make A Change... Kill Yourself, Selvhat, Gris, Klage, Bethlehem, Kargvint, Wigrid, Krohm, and of course Strid.

Some samples:

There is a lot of really terrible bands in the depressive vein, so stay away from poo poo like Nocturnal Depression, I'm In A Coffin, and Happy Days.

I also recently discovered Mortualia, which is the solo project of Shatraug of Sargeist/Horna/Behexen:

Just got into WITTR, and I've been rocking Drudkh and Alcest for a bit now. I hadn't heard of Sólstafir before, though. They sound pretty unique, at least to my ears. Thanks for the recommendations!

I'll check out the ones from other posters soon enough. But I should mention that I also got Ulver's Nattens Madrigal and I think it's my favorite OSBM release so far.

You wanna save this place, right? And I want to destroy it. Brick by hypocritical brick.

For the guy looking for more melodic depressive black metal, definitely check out Sombres Foręts and Miserere Luminis (which is a collaboration between two members from Gris + one from Sombres Foręts), pretty much the only good bands I can think of that ElectricWizard didn't list.
One quality they have is very impressive and varied drumming, not something you'd normally expect to hear in the genre.

Should be right up your alley:

And not quite in the same vein, but you could also try Lifelover - this whole album is fantastic:

I don't do drugs, if I want a rush I just get out of the chair when I'm not expecting it

Don't know if this will interest anyone reading this topic (prolly too geeky): I've been applying some machine learning methods to black metal lyrics. One of the experiments was trying to find a correlation between lyrical themes and records labels, depicted in the graph below. The larger the circle, the higher the percentage of black metal releases by a given label that are assigned to a topic. For example, if we're looking for releases based on "Pain, Sorrow & Suffering", Depressive Illusions is the label to go to.



Click here and scroll down for the interactive chart.

Anyway, this silly hobby has helped me rediscover a bunch of albums I had forgotten about, like Carpathian Forest's "Black Shining Leather". Don't really care for their later releases, but this one is an absolute gem.

That is pretty awesome. Just from the cool display of data standpoint and getting all those numbers crunched (I know the actual work is just a little more complex than that of course). I almost want to print off the image and stick it on my desk at work.

Reminds me a little bit of the old Needle database someone had written for Metal-Archives that worked with all the data.

Thanks! This all started after reading Dayal Patterson's "Evolution of the Cult" (which is a great read, by the way). It made me realize that black metal started almost 35 years ago, spawned a bunch of sub-genres, and I wondered what sort of changes (lyrical-wise) happened during that time.

You've probably already heard about 'em, but Negura Bunget do a good job of scratching the Drudkh itch for me, as does Wolves in the Throne Room.

I reckon Om is better than any Drudkh album, even though I really like Drudkh. It's a bit "grimmer" but I'd definitely recommend Walknut's album as well. Good atmosphere.
