My Favorite Black And Doom Metal Albums Of 2012!

Its in alphabetical order by albums... Some albums on this list may or may not be the exact description of Black or Doom Metal or their subgenres. They just seem to fit for my taste and way I like my Black And Doom dosage. I'm sure some may say Les Discrets and Alcest and other bands on the list can't be Black or Doom because of their sounds and lyrical themes, but if their music gives me that darkness that let's say Watain or Gorgoroth give in Black Metal just without the Satanic lyrics and more of the emotions of Blackness and Doom then to me its Black Metal and the same goes to whatever Doom bands are on my list. If anyone checks out my list, thanks.

1. Mental Home - Угра
2. Forgotten Tomb - ...And Don't Deliver Us From Evil
3. Profetus - ...To Open The Passages In Dusk
4. Narrow House - A Key To Panngrieb
5. A Forest Of Stars - A Shadowplay For Yesterdays

Quadruple A: Apothecary's Album Art Anthology

I know I probably speak for a lot of people when I say that, very often, the artwork that a band chooses for a particular album can be the icing on the cake, essential to giving a visual depiction that tops off the overall aesthetic of the music. There are plenty of albums that I simply couldn't imagine listening to without staring, zoned out, to the big ball of glorious that is their cover art. Here are some such albums. In alphabetical order by band. Links to full images of the covers have been provided, as well as credits to the artists.

1. Aarni - Bathos
2. Absu - The Sun Of Tiphareth
3. Atheist - Unquestionable Presence
4. Bathory - Blood Fire Death
5. Blue Öyster Cult - Fire Of Unknown Origin

Mz's Favorite Black Metal Albums

Hey everyone.
I used to avoid Black Metal for long since I considered BM musicians as "a bunch of monkeys, wearing corpse paints in a dark frost and pretending to hate humanity". Fortunately, some of them have proven to be more than that. My interest in Black Metal is progressively increasing and now I consider it to be one of the most divers metal genres, among with doom metal. Black Metal albums with experimental elements are more likely to appease me. Admittedly, this list shares a lot with my previous lists.These albums are included to indicate my taste in this genre. One album per band, unless the band's album have very different sound .The main aim of this list is to gain recommendations.

1. Aderlating - Spear Of Gold and Seraphim Bone Pt.1
2. Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain
3. Alkerdeel - Morinde
4. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
5. Arizmenda - Within The Vacuum Of Infinity...

The Best Of Unorthodox Black Metal

Within the past decade, black metal has seen bands from all over the world incorporating new sounds to the style and changing its delivery like never before. As great as the classic acts are, BM bands today seem to be branching out in every possible direction. From the beautiful chaos of the French bands to the psychedelic dabblings of the Finns to the atmospheric scene out West in the U.S... all the experimentation is helping to create a new identity for the genre. So, in no particular order, here are some of the best releases from this growing trend of originality within black metal's foundations (atmospheric, psychedelic, black doom, and otherwise).

1. Deathspell Omega - Fas - Ite, Maledicti, In Ignem Aeternum
2. Blut Aus Nord - 777 - The Desanctification
3. Diapsiquir - Virus STN
4. Glorior Belli - The Great Southern Darkness
5. Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini

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
