Black Metal Recommendations.
I was wondering if anyone in the forum was much into Black Metal, I can't say I've really ever enjoyed the genre (Dimmu Borgir, Burzum, Mayhem and Emperor are some of the bands I've heard) however I've always been fascinated by the scene and mystique surrounding it, so I was wondering if anyone hear could recommend me some Black Metal which has substance to it.

Most black metal has substance.. to an extent. Most black metal's aim is create some type of atmosphere and while I can say that I used to think that was a rather lame and stupid concept I see it much more now that I have gotten into black metal a lot more than I was at one time. Anyway, I suggest starting out with Dissection's Storm of the Light's Bane. Its a true classic, but it's not purely black metal. It's also really death metal influenced and may be the band that can break the band and slowly allow you to get into other black metal bands. Good luck.

Darkthrone is a great band to start with. They're not as kvlt as some of their peers, in fact they make fun of those tr00 believers in their recent series of crust punk/heavy metal albums beginning w/FOAD (**** Off And Die). Begin w/ "A Blaze In The Northern Sky".

Yeah, Darkthrone is a good place to start. The first band I heard was Mayhem, so they wouldn't be bad to start off with either.

Damn it I totally forgot about Wolves in the Throne Room. I also would say some Arckanum.

Arcturus are an awesome band, they mix alot of different elements from Black Metal, Symphonic Metal and Progressive Metal. The result of this is absolutely incredible. I should say that not all of their stuff sounds like Black Metal at all, some has nothing in common with Black Metal at all.

Thanks guys! I'll be sure to check out some of this stuff. I recently downloaded Enslaved's 'Eld' having heard that it was a cross between Black Metal and when they started to get more progressive. '793' was definitely the best track on the album.

Enslaved are a really special band.
