That Cold Black Magic, By Glenn Killer And His Thorchestra


Same deal as my doom list: this is for my own organizational purposes and is designed purely to help me keep track of all the many black metal bands and albums that I enjoy, since I can't keep all of this information in my head. It has no other benefit whatsoever and will likely result in tantrums should anyone else see it. I'm aware that I haven't listened to every black metal album that I should have. I only went down to the 7s on this list, so it's possible that I have listened to your favorite album that you desperately need to suggest and I thought it was terrible. There are a lot of heinously incompetent black metal bands out there.

On the off-chance that you've found this and actually care what I think, be advised that my favorites come first. I wouldn't give any of these a 10, but there are some decent 9s at least; unlike my doom list, I wouldn't say that any of these have made it onto my overall list of favorite albums, but there are some bands that I'm really quite fond of.

I can hear your screams of agony and frustration now: why did I include blackened folk bands, but not blackened death? Why are Sigh, The Meads Of Asphodel, Arbor, and other such debatable bands on this list? Why have I not listened to more French black metal bands? Why do I like Caladan Brood more than Summoning? Why is Burzum so much higher on this list than Enslaved?

Because. I wanted to make you cry.
