I would like to present our website:
While the albums featured are predominantly Black Metal, there are a couple of things I should point out. Firstly, there are some albums that don't exactly fall within the Black Metal genre, but have been included for the sake of... basically... not excluding them. Some examples would be non-Black Metal albums by Celtic Frost, Behemoth, or even albums with only slight Black Metal influences such as those by Nortt, Vintersorg or Destruction. Also included are many Pagan/Folk metal bands with varying degrees of Black Metal influence. For the sake of completion we have also included all albums by Satyricon, Dimmu Borgir, Cradle Of Filth, etc... no matter how much some of them stray from Black Metal or otherwise simply "suck".
Secondly, for the sake of simplicity and clarity we have categorized our entire album database within only 9 distinct styles (or a combination of 2 of them). These are Second Wave, Old School, Ambient, Pagan, Industrial, Epic, Death, Thrash and Experimental.
It should be noted that this categorization is NOT an accurate representation of each album's specific subgenre, but rather a simple tool for assisting in the identification of each album's general style. The purpose of this wall of text is to avoid the elitist genre-label-flaming!
Some of the websites features include our Top 100 list, a Random Album tool, album previews that link directly to our YouTube channel, filters by country, year and style, band biographies, and also a comment/user rating system that doesn't require registration. We haven't been online for very long, so the reviews section and band bios section are still rather empty, but when we have time we will expand on them as much as possible.

Enjoy, all feedback is welcome!
