Tell us what track is ticking your boxes today.

December 13, 2019 11:11 AM

Extremely raw & undergroung Colombian first wave black metal.

I'm not in the North, but I miss my earlier epic folk metal taste, when I used to listen to the more epic stuff like this:

January 10, 2020 03:25 AM

Blackened folk metal from Finland.

January 10, 2020 05:52 AM

An essential part of my earlier epic folk metal taste, mainly because my brother, who is usually a rock fan, was listening to this band at the time. Too bad not a lot of us here can get along well with this Celtic melodeath style...

January 11, 2020 04:40 AM

The roots of Norwegian black metal.

January 15, 2020 11:11 AM

Absolutely premium Irish folk metal.

January 30, 2020 10:36 AM

The greatest Viking metal anthem of all time in my opinion. You'll never hear a more graphic depiction of a Viking battle than this.

January 30, 2020 11:45 PM

A pleasant piece of the folk/power metal jigsaw puzzle that I've locked away in my metal storage room (I would say attic but my house doesn't have one) over two years ago:

February 02, 2020 07:31 PM

Panopticon's 20 minute tribute to his young son after he underwent major heart surgery.

Awesome and epic atmospheric black metal from one of the genre's premier exponents.

February 07, 2020 11:34 AM

One of the greatest Norwegian black metal tracks of all time in my opinion.

February 07, 2020 09:52 PM

Nobody embodies black metal better than Fenriz and Nocturno Culto. Even after all this time they don't bow down to anyone and just keep making the music they want, the way they want. Natassja in Eternal Sleep is one of, if not the greatest track in Black Metal. This isn't just track of the day, it is track of any  day!

February 25, 2020 10:53 AM

Utterly stunning avant-garde black metal from the French masters of the sound.

March 04, 2020 06:31 AM

This track sounds like Emperor meets Dire Straits.... & in a good way too.

March 08, 2020 08:33 AM

Atmospheric black metal perfection from Switzerland.

March 11, 2020 09:54 AM

This Celtic folk outro piece was the only track from this French outfit's sole album that I actually enjoyed.

March 18, 2020 09:57 AM

Medieval folk metal from Berlin.

May 06, 2020 08:28 PM

It's not available on YouTube as yet but I'm absolutely worshipping the 19 minute epic closer "So hallt es wider" from Paysage d'Hiver's new album "Im Wald" right now.

June 05, 2020 01:40 AM

This track might be the finest moment in Polish black metal. For fans of Uada, Kriegsmaschine & Plaga.

July 13, 2020 12:34 PM

I'm probably not gonna be super into Equilibrium because of their German lyrics and black metal-ish part of their epic viking metal sound, but I'm sure some of you would agree that this is one of the finest, most epic moments in viking metal:

August 15, 2020 08:59 PM

A ripper of a second wave-inspired black metal number from these blackened thrash exponents from Athens, Greece.

October 19, 2020 08:43 PM

Ultra-raw Brazilian black metal from 1987. For fans of Vulcano, early Sodom & the first couple of Sepultura releases.

November 14, 2020 12:21 PM

Ambitious & well-produced depressive black metal from Sweden. For fans of Silencer, Forgotten Tomb & Bethlehem.

December 05, 2020 12:53 PM

Ever since I started listening to post-metallers Solstafir, their black metal debut Í Blóði og Anda gave me a little more leeway to tolerating the other unholy satanic black metal; now it's fine as long as only the first one or a few of a band's albums is traditional black metal and for the rest they head through a different direction while keeping some of their black metal. Here are a couple bands like that; progressive black metallers Enslaved (from this month's Infinite playlist, thanks Daniel!)...

...And doomy black metallers Woods of Ypres. (RIP David Gold)
