What are some good bands and albums for getting into Black Metal?

Wed, 27/09/2023 - 03:09

I’ve always never really liked black metal but I wanna try to get into it. What are some bands and albums I should check out to get into black metal?

Storm of the Light's Bane from Dissection, it's a masterpiece on its own. (the debates are open if some disagree on Dissection being fully BM haha)

dark funeral and dark throne and mayhem are pretty much the only black metal i listen to so that will be what i suggest

It depends on what type of style within the genre you wish to explore really.
I will sum up some albums very different from oneother.

Watain - Casus Luciferi
Ulver - Bergtatt - Et Eeventyr i 5 Capitler
Deathspell Omega - Si monvmentvm requiris, circumspice
Negură Bunget - Om
Emperor - Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk
Darkthrone - A Blaze in the Northern Sky
Blasphemy - Fallen Angel of Doom
Teitanblood - Death
Negative Plane - Et in Saecula Saeculorum
Paysage D'Hivre - Das Tor
Mysticium - In the Streams of Inferno
Mgła - Hearts Towards None
Svartidauði- Flesh Cathedral
Urfaust - Der Freiwillige Bettler
Weakling - Dead as Dreams

Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, Deathcrush, and Live in Leipzig

This last one is is up fot debate due political matter but still essential really.
Burzum -Filosofem, or Hvis Lyset Tar Oss

Burzum - Aske
Immortal - sons of northern darkness

I started out with Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk, Storm of the Lights Bane, In The Nightside Eclipse and Blood Fire Death. Transilvanian Hunger and Hvis Lyset Tar Oss took a little longer to grow on me. Stronghold by Summoning was another early favorite.
It should also be noted that anyone who got into black metal i during that mid/late 90s wave also enjoyed Dusk and Her Embrace at some point, whether they admit it or not.

COTHRASHER's picture

Immortal and Darkthrone is a great place to start in my opinion

slayerslayer's picture

Bathory. start at thee beginning S/T album ,and work your way through the whole discography.

a different twist on the scandi stuff but maybe bands like mystifier, black witchery, conqueror (which i guess would be considered more war metal), absu, early morbid angel demos like thy kingdom come, profanatica, sarcofago... I got a lot out of reading bardo methodology as well that introduced me to a lot of cool bands and labels that i hadnt heard of.
Edit: A scandi exception but be sure to check out beherit too!

Darklord's picture

I guess I'll start my descent with Dissection and Darkthrone they seem to make the top of most people's list. Thanks
