    Also, recommendations are greatly appreciated. As long as it is black metal or black/doom. No dark metal, black/death, or folk metal please!

    Thanks. I will try listening to Redesekration again to see if it grows on me.

    Mgla - Mdlosci is from 2006 actually. It was re-released on 1cd with their new ep Further Down The Nest this year but that doesn't change the fact ;)

    I see a few I still need to check out. Nice list, though my ranking would be quite different, but no matter. Here's some more you can check out off the top of my head: Kali by 'Eldrig' [epic BM] Ill Innocence by 'Gallhammer' [black/doom/crust] the 'Ganzmord'/'Dodsferd' split Doom And Destroy [raw BM] Leben Und Lebenswille by 'Bergthron' [BM] Slaying The Life by 'Bestial Mockery' [black/thrash] the self-titled 'Cirith Gorgor' [BM] III by 'Borgne' [ambient BM] Tetra Karcist by 'Enthroned' [BM] Je m'Exalte by 'Ghremdrakk' [atmospheric/depressive BM] The Haunting Presence by 'Krohm' [depressive BM] De Ware Hond by 'Lugubrum' (not for everyone! :-D) [brown metal/jazzy BM] The Damned by 'Morrigan' [raw viking BM] Sebevraední Andìlé by 'Trist' (Cze) [black/doom] the self-titled 'Vehementer Nos' [progressive BM] the 'Kilte'/'Funeral Mourning' split [Depressive/funeral black] And the blackened heavy metal of A Collection Of Damned Souls by 'Front Beast' might also be to your taste. (Some are excellent, some so-so, you'll just have to check for yourself, since our tastes don't seem exactly the same ;-) ) And if you can appreciate the new crop of blackened depressive rock bands: Erotik by 'Lifelover' Mourner by 'Caina' And maybe even Souvenirs d'Un Autre Monde by 'Alcest'. And I concur with Uurastaja on the new 'Kroda' release which is excellent, though might be too folky for you. Also, the special edition of the new 'Drudkh' album is up for ordering at if you're interested. And I suggest staying far away from the new 'Nargaroth' and the 'Taake' EP :-D PS: there's some reissues of old 'Paysage d'Hiver' [ambient BM] demos onto A5 digipack CDs that are highly recommended.

    I'm not really fan of black metal, so I haven't any recommendations ;) But I'm surprised with Naglfar position. For me it's maybe not great, but good for sure :)

    Ordo Ad Chao could be some post-post-black metal...:P
