I second Luciferion. Very good band.

I think most people here are familiar with Timeghoul, but just in case I will recommend them as well.

Black Funeral - Empire of Blood


Pretty bland early Gay Midget Fecal Pr0n (GMFP), though a lot better than it's predecessor Vampyr. You'd be better off sticking to the Az-I-Dahak and Ordog.

How's the new Blut Aus Nord album compared to their other work?

Has anyone heard the Gorguts "Live in Rotterdam"?

once again, the word filters here are hilarious.

i liked Az-I-Dahak but i think that Empire of Blood is BF's best work (that i have heard). those vocals are simply evil in its true form, and the medieval vampyric atmosphere is very convincing. plus, an excellent assortment of tremolo melodies are abound throughout the tracks.
No.

Having reviewed the thread, baby Jesus is most definitely weeping at this point.

Malevolent Creation - The Ten Commandments & Retribution


i have Retribution. pretty decent album, though not really distinguishable from the crowd. the guitars are mixed far too low, and are overpowered by the drums. shame, as there are some tasty riffs on display.

Malevolent Creation - The Ten Commandments & Retribution


This is some of the best SLAYER-ized death metal there is, showcasing the speed metal influence of Florida death metal most profoundly.  Together they represent the best by this band.  Both are intensely, violently rhyhtmic, though the first is much more frenetic than the latter.  I prefer The Ten Commandments in part for that reason.

Question: why are you asking for opinions about albums that are readily available for sampling?

Typical "melodic," speed and heavy metal-influenced death metal.  Not worth the time.

Funebre


The album is cleaner than the early works, and has the organic Finnish sound (and indeed was one of the earliest Finnish DM acts).  Many of the riffs are starkly disconnected and juxtaposed, so it sounds somewhat incomplete.  Think AMORPHIS without the melody-narrative with some proto-DEMILICH type moments.  Probably worth further investigation.

Maniac butcher
Bone Awl
Taake

and maybe Man is the Bastard

Akitsa - I think this band is worth admiration as one of the few bands who use the black metal aesthetic as a medium for their various ideas, rather than playing for the sake of entering what typical black metal represents. On Goetie and Sang Nordique every song has it's own character yet fits in nicely with the others.

Straight-ahead black metal; think a blasting Under a Funeral Moon plus Battles in the North.  Mid-to-late-nineties vintage.  Decent for a while but it doesn't last.

Bone Awl


Supposedly a "more-punkish" ILDJARN.  Pretty bland.

Taake


Johnny-come-lately Norsecore of the weakest variety.  Think SATYRICON, only the gig is they are cool again because "real" Norwegian black metal became unrespectable after Enthrone Darkness Triumphant.

Blut aus Nord

Thanks for the second opinion, and the answer to your question: Sometimes I'm able to download albums before I mail order them at a record store nearby, other times I'm using a computer on which that isn't an option. Juggling school and work makes it hard to always get to my personal computer, so I save time by observing the criticism of respected peers.

*EDIT*
On second thought, this thread was created with newer bands specifically in mind. In that case I'll shift my questioning towards any recent material that has caught my interest. Sorry for the waste of time.
