Avathar were pretty awesome!  :D

Bathory - Blood on Ice.

While the albums Blood Fire Death, Hammerheart and Twilight of the Gods are regarded as viking metal classics, not much attention is given to Blood on Ice. I think it is just as good as any of the three I mentioned, and a must if you like Bathory's viking era.

The Lake is the perfect viking metal song; low chanting vocals, dark choirs, acoustic guitars and slow thrash metal! Wait for the chorus!

For all nightmare's sake! I'm amazed by Dreamlike Horror's album, "Delightful Suicides". This girl is a gothic horror genius!

Specially the third song, "Moonshine", is VERY creepy:

And, of course, she is Norwegian :P

Besides Rubicon one of my favourite new albums is My Favorite Scar's self-titled debut album. Love it! It's the band created by Within Temptation's old drummer Stephen. I've also seen them live a couple of times, great live band too!

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6rpna3xQxc" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6rpna3xQxc</a>
this one's a gothic version of the song my favorite things from the sound of music

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9svHInS-E84" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9svHInS-E84</a>
this is an old song, way back from 1995 but it is epic to me. amazing vocals. listen to the full song.

Austere. I just listened to their latest album, To Lay Like Old Ashes.

At first I just thought it was ''regular'' DSBM, but this is black metal with class! Even my sister thought their sound was beautiful.

Sounds very, very good! O_O
Thanks for sharing!

BTW

Some amazing stuff I've been listening to recently:

Rootwater (Poland) - "Visionism" (2009)
http://listen.grooveshark.com/#/album/Visionism/3645882?src=5

Heavy/groove metal/hardcore/middle eastern folk/avant-garde? I still don't know what to call this other than AWESOME. Incredibly catchy, lots of ideas, very heavy guitars playing one great riff after the other, fantastic vocals, cool lyrics. This album has everything to be one of the favorite 2009 albums!
The Dude already approves 8)

Hjarnidaudi (Norway) - "Psykostarevoid" (2009)
http://listen.grooveshark.com/#/album/Psykostarevoid/5641092?src=5

This is monumental. Immense drone/funeral doom like I haven't listened to before. The first song became one of my favorite doom songs ever. It has no vocals (it doesn't really need them at all...) but it has drums which add to the psychedelic heaviness this monster of an album contains.

Vonn (Norway) - "Victim One: Agony" (2006)
http://listen.grooveshark.com/s/Victim+One+Agony/3vQWXm?src=5

Drone doom with noise/industrial influences. I think I can safely say a new mark on musical morbidness has been set with this album. This is the most extreme, sick, morbid, disgusting, twisted, dark, suffocating and terrorific sh*t I've ever heard. 76 minutes of a very, very immersive auditive torture. Seriously, when even Khanate pales in comparison, you know you are in front of something that comes from the deepest bottom of an incredibly twisted mind. Hell, this is almost inhuman, it's way too much :-\
And I love it ;D
Too bad I can't find the second album, "Victim One: Ecstasy" (2010) :'(
I need it!

Burning Witch (USA) - Crippled Lucifer (the 2008 compilation)
http://listen.grooveshark.com/playlist/Burning+Witch+Crippled+Lucifer/44011906?src=5

More drone doom, but this time with plenty of vocals and drumming, and some stoner influences for good measure. It's a drone classic, but I've just recently found out about them :-[
I'd wish I had listened to them before, they were too good!

Asva (USA) - "What You Don't Know Is Frontier" (2008)
http://listen.grooveshark.com/#/album/What+You+Don+t+Know+Is+Frontier/5494138?src=5

More instrumental drone doom, very rich in textures, with a distinctive sound far from the darkness and heaviness of the above mentioned bands. Music to listen to with eyes closed and be carried to some distant places. Can't really say much about this band, just listen to it and love it :)

Sun Of Nothing (Greece) - whole discography:
- "... And Voices, Words, Faces Complete The Dream" (2003)
http://listen.grooveshark.com/#/album/+And+Voices+Words+Faces+Complete+The+Dream/5776993?src=5
- "... In The Weak And The Wounded" (2007)
http://listen.grooveshark.com/#/album/+In+The+Weak+And+The+Wounded/5777112?src=5
- "The Guilt Of Feeling Alive" (2010)
http://listen.grooveshark.com/#/album/The+Guilt+Of+Feeling+Alive/5777169?src=5
Doom/sludge/noise/black metal. Yes, with such combination of genres one can guess this is a very experimental and extreme band, and they'd be right ;)

And last but certainly not least:

Anomalous (USA) - "Ohmnivalent" (2011)
http://listen.grooveshark.com/#/album/Ohmnivalent/5793134?src=5

HOLY F*CKING SH*T!!! WHAT THE F*CK JUST HAPPENED??? O_O
This is incredible!!! The amounts of technique in this album are astronomical!!!
Brutal technical death metal with lots of experimentation like never before! Seriously, this goes straight to my list of best albums of 2011! O_O

Anomalous was very impressive. Being brutal, technical and (fairly) melodic at the same time!

They melted my brain.


Listened to Austere's album today at work. Really great! It takes the best of bands like Fen and adds a good amount of experimentation! And the last track being drone doom was unexpected :o
Fantastic album! Will be listening to it several times in the next days :D

Experimental sludge/stoner doom, including 2 violins, and, yes, they are females. Freaking EPIC. These girls are my new doom goddesses, even better than Jex Thoth, and, heck, that's A LOT to say!
Good contender for album of the year!

I just gave them a try and... don't get me wrong, don't want to be rude but God I think they're awful...  :P  I don't like the music at all and I couldn't stand the vocals...

Agalloch - Marrow of the Spirit (not sure how it could be described... folk experimental ambient metal?)

I never really "got" into Agalloch by listening to single songs on YouTube. Could you suggest me one specific album to start with?

Septic Flesh - "The Great Mass" (2011)
http://listen.grooveshark.com/album/The+Great+Mass/6042964?src=5


The new album by the Greek symphonic death metal band is out. And it kicks ass! :D
They surpassed the meow meow song from the previous album ;D

YES!!! I've been waiting for this album for several months and it's finally here!!!

Anaal Nathrakh - "Passion"


I think I'll end up liking it even more than the previous one, "In The Constellation Of The Black Widow", and , hell, that's a lot to say!!! It's even more brutal, more experimental, more epic and more insane! The vocals got even more varied, and it has more monster breakdowns then any of the previous albums.
Anaal Nathrakh shows once again why are they one of the most extreme bands ever!!!

Good albums so far this year:
- Fallen (Burzum)
- Under Saturn Retrograde (Forgotten Tomb)
- Cursed (Rotten Sound)

Albums I am waiting for:

Thanks! Will listen to it once I'm back home, probably tomorrow :)
For now, I'm really enjoying "The Order Of The False Eye", by the futuristic grindcore band Gigan.
http://grooveshark.com/album/The+Order+Of+The+False+Eye/4690690?src=5


Also, the whole In Slaughter Natives discography is blowing my mind with their heavy and suffocating form of industrial dark ambient. It's hard to believe they are from around 1990.
http://grooveshark.com/artist/In+Slaughter+Natives/57000?src=5
My favorite album is the self-titled debut
