Sounds like what I was looking for.

Check out their album The Work Which Transforms God. It's a mix of black metal and industrial that's just gloriously weird and ****ed up.

Took The Band on the highway to work this morning, didn't care for most of the album but King Harvest and Up On Cripple Creek stood out to me. Looking for more tunes along these lines. Laid back roots rock but still enough southern grit, twang, and movement to confidently soundtrack a riverside bonfire. Minimal ballads, minimal piano. Harmonicas and twangy leads encouraged. I've already worked my way through the obvious: CCR, Skynyrd, Allman Bros.

Certainly not bad, but too...polished might not be the right word, but something like that.

Is it the lack of the lofi quality most BM bands have?

I don't think it's so much the recording quality, more like the sound of the instruments and voice themselves.
It's difficult to pinpoint for me, I'm just not that well versed and experienced with BM, at least not anymore

Thorns are an older band (the guy behind it was actually one of the people to originally develop the Norwegian BM style of riffing), but Snorre was unfortunately caught up in Euronymous' murder and spent some time in prison, so he never got to release more than demos until he was released and managed to finally record a debut.

Thorns plays some more traditional black metal, but they seamlessly incorporate industrial elements that give the music a kind of "cyber black metal" thing. They never quite sound like traditional Norwegian black metal though.

Here's one of their more industrial sounding songs.




And here's one of their more black metal tracks. Relatively speaking of course. Also much more accessible than Blut Aus Nord. Too bad they only released the one album, but it's fantastic.




Deathspell Omega seem to be the most respected third-wave black metal band, even though I've never been as big of a fan, but they play around with dissonance. Perhaps they'd be more your speed.

The vocals from Thorns aren't really what I'm looking for, neither is accessibility.
Deathspell Omega on the other hand seem worth checking out, the vocals aren't quite right either, but still cool and the music is great.
Thanks.
