Black Metal Miscellanea

Personally I find Black Metal to be a very difficult genre to get into, hence the meager length of my list which contains all the albums I've really enjoyed to date, in no order. Recommendations are most welcome, nay required!

Note: Be sure to let me know if any of these aren't actually Black Metal

1. Potentiam - Bálsýn
2. Grabnebelfürsten - Dynastie Oder Wie Man Herrschaft Definert
3. Deathspell Omega - Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice
4. Sigh - Hangman's Hymn- Musikalische Exequien
5. Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape

Partially ordered (thus far).
Subject to change, as I see fit.

What a wonderful year, I have to say! This year has seen me expand my tastes like never before. Discovered so many great new acts, while many metal stalwarts delivered the goods as expected. A truly memorable year, and one that I will forever cherish, as far as me being an avid music enthusiast is concerned.

1. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
2. Omnium Gatherum - New World Shadows
3. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
4. Heavenwood - Abyss Masterpiece
