If you're into symphonic black metal check out Limbonic Art, probably my favorite symphonic black metal band.

Xasthur is my favorite black metal band. It's depressive/suicidal black metal, with droning guitars and haunting keyboards. Good stuff.

Anything from the French Black Legions is great too. .

The best scenes these days are probably the US and France, in my opinion.

In my opinion Finland is the leading scene these days, but other very close are Sweden, France and USA. Also Germany has finally got footstep in best black metal scenes nowadays.

Darkthrone, Burzum (before Varg got into that ambiant stuff), and a select few others are the only true and "good" black metal ("good" = it's not supposed to be good).
power violence and grind are the best tho.

well if I were you Ill try to be more specific, because from Inmortal to Cof theres a big, no, huge difference...
Theres a lot of bands that started doing classical black metal and now...well their doing crazy things...
If you whant noisy/dirty/black metal you could try with the first Behemoth albums...
But if you want to experiment with your tolerance boundries I recomend Troll, Tartaros,Susperia, Arcuturs...any of their albums, Solefald, Catamenia is like Cof but no so barroc, Enslaved...is a cult band often disscused if it is Viking or black, Ulver but the older things, Anorexia Nervosa is very good like CoF too but from France and more death brutal than gothic... well if you want some mp3 or a extended list you can mail me I cannot ,tell you what is the best but I can offer what I have
well good luck! your going to find that BM isnt what it used to be, now theres no fixed boundaries
AH! by the way there are two bands that I kow of that mixed electronic music with black (besides Covenant)
And Oceans (black electronic, but the cd IMGOD) and Diablerie, more industrial black metal...AH! the last Forlorn album is quite industrial too...
well have funn and I hope your ears bleed with joy for hearing black metal!!

Behemoth's old albums are damn good. Like Sventevith or Grom, whose music is very dirty and raw black metal with, monotonous drumming, great riffing and vocals. From the Pagan Vastlands album is bit different, it is more harsh and raw than these other, but is more melodic (with Graveland-esque synthparts and the first song's acoustic parts), and is definitely Behemoth's finest work. However I have only heard this album from MP3s because From Pagan Vastlands is only released on CD (Wild Rags), and there is no re-release ever made, and therefore it is a bit rare thing.

You are in the right way, but i prefer when starts to play inferno the drums, i love "pandemonic incantation", "antichristyian phenomenom", "satanica" and "thelema 6" and ill see them with krisium, incantation and ragnarok in early November.

LIKES:
BEHEMOTH (heheheh)
Belphegor
Immortal
Kult of azazel
Zyklon-B (not zyklon)
Darthrone
Enthroned
impaled nazarene
mayhem (of course)
Emperor
Marduk
satyricon (Nemesis divina)

And a black/daeth band: Blind Agony

I uploaded "From the Hornedlands to Lindesfarne" song at MP3 format to: http://decrepify.zidev.com/behemoth...lindesfarne.mp3

I mixed the song into low-quality, because my server allows only 1,5 meg sized files max. Also there misses about 1 minute from the end of the song, so the total time is 5 minutes, but you'll get the clue from their music.

Isn't Susperia the project of members from Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon etc.?

Is Grom a good album? I only heard stuff from Behemoth's new album, but I heard Grom is one of their best works. I also heard it has some female vocals, is this true?

Grom differences much from Behemoth's new material, because it is more primitive and harsh (and very monotonic), and style is much closer to Black Metal than Death. It do have some female vocal parts, and those fits quite fine to the music. The album is good, and definitely worth to try.

Dimmu Borgir

If your looking for something along the lines of the more non traditional ( Dimmu borgir) then I would recommend Extol. I think these guys are excellent.

Yes, Sargeist's Satanic Black Devotion was really good album, very melancholic and dark. From there you can see that good Black Metal is still kicking and alive, even though many band's have failed to make good anymore.

COVENANT - IN TIMES BEFORE THE LIGHT

This is the band, that made the only true black metal!

That album is great and actually is the only album from Covenant (or The Kovenant) which is worth to listen. Melodic and slow Black Metal with an epic atmosphere works very fine.

I have heard from Krohm their "Crown of the Ancients" MCD, which was also great. Cold and depressive Burzum influenced music, which worked fine.
