Well, I'm posting another band, to keep this very interesting thread alive
This time I'm suggesting Krallice's self titled debut album. Hailing from New York, this band plays another strange style of black metal, taking a different approach to the genre through post-rock.
Instead of alternating slow, atmospheric parts with black metal bursts, Krallice plays at full speed from the beggining to the end, with a good dose of technique.
The guitars have a clean sound and they constantly play and overlap melodies one over the other, sometimes giving the feel that they are playing a very long solo, although there are some actual solos here and there.
The bass, which is actually pretty audible, also plays great melodies which add to the atmosphere and the already impressive work of the guitars.
The drumming is closer to standard black metal drumming, and it's actually the thing that will remind you that this is a black metal album, as vocals are scarcely used, and they are back in the mix, making this an almost instrumental album.
As usual, here are:

If you're looking for a very unique style of black metal, this will suit you perfectly. Specially you, Tjeerd, I'm almost sure you'll like them, if you don't know them already
If you like the first album, here's the second one, "Dimensional Bleedthrough": http://listen.grooveshark.com/#/playlist/Krallice+Dimensional+Bleedthrough/38470895
