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

MMXII: Ranking The "Final" Year's Albums

While I'm slightly disappointed the world didn't end this year, I thought I'd share my musical tastes from throughout the year by arbitrarily ranking other people's art. When the year began I was really into sludge and stoner but as the year has worn on, it's been the black metal releases which by and large have won my attention and appreciation.

1. Royal Thunder - CVI
2. Ancestors - In Dreams and Time
3. Hail Spirit Noir - Pneuma
4. Hidden Orchestra - Archipelago
5. Reverence - The Asthenic Ascension

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 :

2012 -- A Various Assortment of Delectable Delights... and Nasties.

Hey and welcome to my top albums of 2012! All these albums I think are absolutely awesome and definitely deserve to be on this list one way or another. This list may also change if i hear a better album which I think should be on this list. I know possibly a lot of the ratings don't match the other ratings I may have given it so I'm definitely trying to stomp out being too generous!

1. Anaal Nathrakh - Vanitas
2. Ørkenkjøtt - Ønskediktet
3. Cattle Decapitation - Monolith Of Inhumanity
4. Neurotech - Decipher Vol. 1
5. Wodensthrone - Curse
