Just Some Strange Yet Raw Oriented Black Metal Albums

This is a list composed by what I think that is raw oriented black metal, but still only albums with a difference are allowed. Basically Atmospheric, Melodic (Not Symphonic), Experimental stuff. I give some brief explanation of what is so different about those albums. Some bands would deserve the entire discography mentioned, so I opted by putting only one album per band.
Some people tend to think that noise black metal is a very different approach to bm, but it's a well consolidated subgenre. Nothing really experimental or different about it. Same goes for raw oriented dsbm. I'm not gonna spam those subgenres unless something really unique is going on.
Moreover, actually the whole purpose of me making this list is getting more ideas of bands, which should appear on the comments, so start recommending stuff.

1. Ekpyrosis - Mensch Aus Gold
2. Terra Tenebrosa - The Tunnels
3. The Meads Of Asphodel - Damascus Steel
4. Urfaust - Der Freiwillige Bettler
5. A Forest Of Stars - The Corpse Of Rebirth

A PBR 12 Pack Of Popular Hipster Black Metal.

Orthodoxy is for morons who cannot compose or create themselves and need to copy the blueprint of someone else. Daring to be different might make your music stand apart. Daring to be different and standing apart might draw more people to your music. Daring to be different might make you more popular - and thus more hipster. So grow some facial hair, put on an ironic shirt, grab a PBR, and listen up.

1. Agalloch - Marrow Of The Spirit
2. Alcest - Écailles de lune
3. Blut Aus Nord - 777 - Sect(s)
4. Darkspace - III
5. Darkthrone - Circle The Wagons

2008: The Amphibian Halo (as In 'my Blurry View Of 2008')

Updated version of the list previously published here. You'll notice that the comments are a bit different for sure, as is the order:
1 to 3: best of the year (in preference order)
4 to 25: other great stuff (alphabetical order)

And then there were some average (sometimes bad, sometimes good) albums that didn't make it in this list, but they featured some of the most awesome songs of the year. Like Voices Of The Fallen by Battlelore, Dylath-Leen's Frozen Reflect On A Broken Mirror, and particularly Iced Earth's Come What May...

1. Textures - Silhouettes
2. Esoteric - The Maniacal Vale
3. Burst - Lazarus Bird
4. ADX - Division Blindée
5. Cynic - Traced In Air
