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 genre and changing its delivery like never before. As great as the classic bands are, BM bands today seem to be branching out in every possible direction. From the beautiful chaos of the French bands, to the developing psychedelic black metal style, and even the Avantgarde craziness of the Meads or work from Mories... all the experimentation is helping to create a bold new identity for the genre's sound. Black metal today could very well be the one area of metal where we see the most experimentation taking place, and I hope the albums in this list will illustrate this growing trend.

1. Ved Buens Ende - Written In Waters
2. Deathspell Omega - Fas - Ite, Maledicti, In Ignem Aeternum
3. Blut Aus Nord - MoRT
4. Diapsiquir - Virus STN
5. Glorior Belli - The Great Southern Darkness

Had to Play Today (Order Doesn't Mean Terribly Much Here)

Bunch of good songs, here. Gonna compile a list or seven of the songs I can competently play on guitar. I might be happy to teach these, or at least provide some tabs

1June:actually was playing these all in D tuning. When not jamming along to the recording, I tend to use whatever key is my open string / 7 up, a strategy which may change if I ever get around to singing at the same time

1. Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
2. Blind Faith - Blind Faith
3. Queens of the Stone Age - Queens of the Stone Age
4. Mastodon - Blood Mountain

Delusions Of Silence - Top 10 Of 2010

Just a list of my personal top albums for the year 2010. When I look at it now, I would change a few things, since probably when the hype dropped, I don't actually prefer some albums as much as I did back then, (I would probably drop down/out Firewind and Agalloch) but I'm not gonna change it, it was written back then and " Everything Remains As It Never Was".

1. Blind Guardian - At the Edge of Time
2. Dark Tranquillity - We Are the Void
3. Equilibrium - ReKreatur
4. Firewind - Days of Defiance
5. Helloween - 7 Sinners
