Technical Black Metal?

Although they're not the best band in the world, I think someone should really mention Abigor.  Nachthymnen and Orkblut are their most definitive releases in my opinion.

I second Nokturnal Mortum's Nechrist and Averse Sefira's Tetragrammatical Astigmata, and Immortal, sortof..

Also, what's the distinction between "technical" and "intricate" or "dense" music.  I bring this up because of albums like Summoning's newest, which definetely doesn't fit the traditional definition of technicality, but there is A LOT of music going on in there.

The question is strange anyhow. I think 'technicality' (I by far prefer the term 'complexity') only has value as far as it allows a band to better express its artistic concept.

Admiring complexity in itself - or worse, 'whether they can pull it off live' - reduces Metal to a novelty circus.

Necromantia managed to be fairly technical without choking on their own semen.

I agree, if you only admire the talent of a musician, your appriciation of the band can go no further than such admiration, you cannot appreciate it as art or get as much out of it as a band that is less technical but presents a far more complex message.
