good black metal bands

i am a newb to black metal, and id like to know a few bands, other than immortal, Old Man's Child, Rotting Christ, and the more mainstream CoF and dimmu borgir.

go ahead, laugh at my ignorance, but thats why i ask questions, to learn, that i dont listen to shitty music and get turned away from the genre.

For starting out I'd try Akercocke because they're a really good link between death metal and black metal. They have both black and death parts to their songs so should ease you into other bands such as Emperor who offer a more full blown black metal experience.

Despite liking these two bands, I can't abide black metal.

What are Absu like, Nihilist? Their name sounds kinda Egyptian so I've got an image of Nile playing black metal *froths at mouth*

Absu.. thrashy/black metal. Unreal drummer, though. I'd advise you to check out Melechesh, if you're looking for Nile-ish black metal. Same drummer in that band too.

Yeah I've heard of Melechesh but the reviews I've read have been differing so I'm not sure of which ones to believe. When I get a job and I'm earning millions (!) I'll just buy it anyway, I guess.

The drummer's Proscriptor, right?

Proscriptor, correct! It's a decent album, I'd enjoy it more if I liked black metal.

Marduk are awesome because they dont use distortion on their vocals like Dimmu and cof. And they have one of the most craziest drummers. As for Immortal, UHHHH! I never liked them. Mayhem is pretty good but not quite really fast with blast beats but its a good example of what old school BM is all abot. Possesed and Bathory are one of mine and my brother's favorite old BM bands.

Marduk is pretty brutal (check out the song Dark Endless or anything from the album PAnzer Division...so so brutal. One of the most brutal songs is Christraping Black Metal

Absu's good too, not really black though. Tara is a good album from them

Ancient Rites kick a lot of ass

i don't know about you guys, but i think cof is like the blink 182 of black metal.
i don't dig on much of the black metal stuff, alot of it just seems like people are trying too hard to be "evil".
i like a few black metal bands like old mans child,dimmu, and mayhem, plus a few others, but most of the scene for that shit has gone to crap in my opinion.
