14 Oct 2011, 13:33 de treghetAfter compiling a number of bands I picked out forty based on how much I enjoyed their material and what I felt people would enjoy. Needless to say there are plenty of bands that didn't make the cut and I actually ended up omitting a few of my favorite albums to favor some lesser known ones that deserve attention. I tried to give a brief overview of each release so you don't have to blindly check out bands like in my last thread. I also want to make it clear that this list is meant to guide you, not tell you what bands I think are the best. So, here you go, forty extreme metal releases that are worth checking out. If any of the links are broken please let me know and I will fix them!
Abhorrence – Abhorrence
It was not until about ’89 that death metal had really begun to catch on in Northern Europe. Among the early bands that had taken shape in Sweden and Finland was Abhorrence. …

Firstly, name your top 50 most played bands on Last.fm. And now answer the questions according to the numbers:
1, What's your favorite song by 15? (1349)
Sculptor of Flesh, for many years.
2, How did you get into 20? (Necroth Dies)
I'm a vocalist there. ^^
3, Who is your favorite member in 1? (Norther)
I love them all. Without any of them this band wouldn't even exist.
4, Whats your favorite lyric bit by 29? (Enslaved)
"My grace you shall get, because I welcome your return
(If) you're not the hidden into sadness I'll turn
I've come to your rescue now before your last breath
My love you will receive, but it will be your death ."
5, Have you ever seen 22 live? (Mayhem)
Of course. :D Haha, just kidding. I think that it's obvious...
6, What's your favorite album from 10? (Burzum)
Probably Det Som Engang Var.
7, Do you own any merchandise from 3? (Darkthrone)
Of course, I even wear this xD
8, What is a good memory you have of 7? (Urgehal)
9 Feb 2011, 6:30 de DetoxScissionThis was something that I had been working on for some time, mostly out of curiosity of the early Canadian scene. It was rather hard tracking down a lot of this stuff, but I was persistant and got 25 tracks from 25 different bands for my troubles. There were still a few I was heavily searching for, but it seems as though any musical efforts left behind by those groups barely exist and definately not online anywhere. I'm not sure about the rules on compilations and stuff like that posted on here, but I figured that with the majority of these bands broken up (Some a long time ago) and a good portion of them never making it past the tiny indie label and releasing an EP, a single or a split that it wouldn't be a big issue. I originally had Cryptopsy on the compilation, but figured that they would be slightly too big for this project (I did, however, put a track from their pre-Cryptopsy band Necrosis on here). Anyways, check it out and let me know what you think. If this is an issue, I can take it down without question. Enjoy!

Vorum: Unfortunately there was a long queue to the venue (all who entered passed through the one ticket-seller/stamper/list checker) so I missed most of them which is a shame since I quite enjoy Grim Death Awaits. Only caught the last minutes of the last song, but their playing sounded good even outside and they seemed to be having fun up there.
Neutron Hammer: Never heard them before, just the name thrown around, watched them from upstairs and quite far so couldn't really get into the mood though they sounded pretty good, swinging from something like mid-era Deströyer 666 to the early violent Sadus. The drummer was very impressive, very damn tight playing from him and seemed to be a lot into the performance. The guitarist played well too, even though he kept pretty much the same pose all the time and was hiding behind his hair. Bassist seemed to be struggling a bit with performing and vocalist did alright even if he was rather forgettable. …
5 Sep 2010, 21:58 de Omega_Switch22BThis is certainly not the first black metal list I've made, but this is the first that I have decided to use a different format. Rather than listing all my favorite black metal albums in order of preference, I'm listing these albums in groups, which are split according to subjective preference and how essential they are to the genre. Think of this as an overview of black metal, rather than a favorites list. If time allows, I'll add some mini-reviews and album covers in the future.
Comments and recommendations would be appreciated! I'm posting this not only as a guide for other interested listeners but also so that others can help me out by providing recommendations. Thanks in advance.
Group/level 1- These are the essentials, albums that I consider to represent the pinnacle of black metal- both in terms of sound/aesthetic appeal and artistic merit.
Group/level 2- Near-essentials; albums that are either important milestones in black metal- but are not quite as special as the…
