Black Metal - THE genre for me! Underground stuff only, no Nuclear Blast shit! Albums I’ve been listening lately:
Evilfeast: "Funeral Sorcery"
Old Wainds: "Withers of the Wainds"
Ulver: "Nattens Madrigal"
Lycanthropy’s Spell: "Forest of Misanthropy"
Xasthur: "A Gate Through Bloodstained Mirrors"
Krohm: "Crown of the Ancients"
Veineliis: “In This Forest Shall Be My Gallows”
Funeral Doom (Thergothon, Funeral) - Not sure about what this means but I like “slow death metal” doom like Cathedral (first albums only!), Abyssmal Sorrow & Eyes of Ligeia.
Viking Metal - Quorthon = GOD!!! Einherjer (underrated band!), Nachfalke, early Enslaved. “Barbaric metal” is a subgenre of Viking metal I guess… Graveland, Woodtemple, Gontyna Kry… just about everything from old Polish hordes!
Other stuff - Heavy metal with BM influences, like Deströyer 666, Ancient Rites, The Meads of Asphodel. Some good folk metal, some heavy metal (King Diamond = demigod!).
