    I'm talking about music that sounds like "For All Tid" and "Stormblast"

    I didn't know that other people liked black metal here. If you are into the ambient stuff, listen to Burzum. It's Varg Vikerness's solo stuff.

    There were a couple of big black metal threads a while back. One of them started by me, entitled "Does Black Metal Suck?" So, you know what my opinion is on the subject... regardless... that thread had lots of recommendations for bands.

    Heres a link to a BM thread I started a few weeks ago. My Favorites are Dimmu Borgir, Mayhem, Craddle of Filth, My Dying Bride, & Dark Throne. Check out Aggaloch & Borknagar both recommended to me here. Awesome atmospheric stuff.

    i absolutely love bm too

    burzum - hvis lyset tar oss and ulver - bergtatt are probably the 2 best bm album ever recorded imo.

    others that are atmospheric and great:
    emperor - anthems and in the nightside eclipse
    darkthrone - second, third and fourth album
    nokturnal mortum - lunar poetry
    immortal - pure holocaust and diabolical fullmoon mysticism

    those are the most atmospheric ones i can think of atm

    Check out Agalloch, they aren't totally black metal, more doomy with some BM elements, but they are very atmospheric in the same vein as Borknagar.

    Two of my other favorites are Storm of the Light's Bane by Dissection and North From Here by Sentenced. Sentenced was actually a very technical black metal act once upon a time, before they noticed how much money could be made sounding like The Cure...

    NFH stands out as the high water mark of the entire technical black metal style for me.

    The bassline in Dodsford by Dimmu Borgir (off of the album "Stormblast") is one of my favorite

  12. old man's child/anorexia nervosa do a pretty good job of this i think. there's a local blackened death metal band that i really dig called winterthrall...check them out: especially "...and the meek shall inherit nothing," it's a killer track.
