Post and discuss atmospheric black metal.
What are the best albums? Which is your all time favorite?
Really though, Fell Voices is gotdamn amazing and sent me on my journey deeper into bm
Burzum is possibly the greatest Black Metal artist. However Paysage d'Hiver is one of my personal favorite as well.
Every album (demo) he's put out is great, but my personal favorite is either Kerker or Winterkalte.
Ethereal Shroud - They Became the Falling Ash might be one of the most atmospheric bm albums I've ever heard.
That was a great album from last year as well.
I wouldn't call HLTO an atmoblack album though. HLTO is atmospheric in the way all black metal is. But it doesn't like literally evoke forests like Ulver or Drudkh. HLTO is still my favorite overall black metal album though still to this day.
Am I allowed to post atmodoom? Shit I just gave Fall Of Every Season a listen after years.
Anyway for one more on topic, I am usually not that big a fan of atmoblack. Closest things are probs the usual Ulver type shit,
If this counts, then it's god-tier
if it doesn't then... it still is, but i put it in the wrong thread
Striborg - Embittered Darkness
Xasthur - The Funeral of Being
Make a Change... Kill Yourself - s/t (I know the band name is awful but it's worth checking out)
Galdr - s/t
I Shalt Become - Wanderings
Trist is also fantastic. Both the one from Czech and Germany. Trist - Hin fort is worth checking out if you're into Dark Ambient.
>HLTO is atmospheric in the way all black metal is. But it doesn't like literally evoke forests
Really? When I hear the synths on that first track and Tomhet I am transported into the pathway and forests surrounding the album artwork.
Bump with some less known atmospheric albums I like:
Melankoli - Wind
Thantifaxath - s/t
Wigrid - Hoffnungstod (Similar to Burzum)
Woods of Desolation - As the Stars (If you like Sunbather try this)
That's nice, but unlike atmoshit that's explicitly trying to do that, HLTO is a lot more than that. Conceptually the journey definitely has fantasy imagery, but again it's all symbolism for a journey towards individualism and being yourself.
