My Favorite Atmospheric Black Metal Albums (WIP)

This is a favorites list, not a guide or anything of that sort. It just highlights the albums that I've enjoyed listening to and spinned extensively since last November (When I got into this monolithic genre.) One entry for each band. The descriptions aren't necessarily descriptions of the music. I just wrote what came to my mind. I will update with new albums frequently.
EDIT: Got to 50 entries, so I guess I'll stop for now. I want more time to revisit these 50, get into the other albums of the bands listed below and delve into other genres of metal. I guess that taking a break from black metal (at least new stuff) will ensure that I won't get bored of it. It is likely that I'll continue this list by the half of July.

1. A Forest Of Stars - Opportunistic Thieves Of Spring
2. Addaura - Burning For The Ancient
3. Agalloch - Pale Folklore
4. Alcest - Écailles De Lune
5. Alda - : Tahoma :

THE Top 20 Of 2011- don't accept lesser lists as this is the definitive one!?!?!?!:)

After browsing a number of the Top Albums of 2011 lists I felt that I was obligated to put together my own list based on the fact that my tastes seem a bit different than what I've seen on here. So, here are My Fav's of 2011 though not in order......good year for metal in my humble opinion. Some of the picks here won't be everyones cup of tea but each to their own. If people have suggestions that I may have missed based on the genres represented below feel free to comment and let me know about them.....I'm sure there are numerous releases I have not heard.

1. Krisiun - The Great Execution
2. Trap Them - Darker Handcraft
3. Woods Of Desolation - Torn Beyond Reason
4. Beyond Creation - The Aura
5. Anaal Nathrakh - Passion

2011: Favourite To Least

Purely subjective list based on personal preferences for the year, unrelated to mass opinion of an album or a band's abilities (e.g. Trivium, Oranssi Pazuzu) - many albums lined up to listen to so will increase in size. Also, not entirely in order, middle order mainly just an approximation.

1. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
2. Protest The Hero - Scurrilous
3. Infestus - E x I s t
4. Amorphis - The Beginning Of Times
5. Ouroboros - Glorification Of A Myth

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
