    • I am a vocalist / music producer ( i also play keyboard ) trying to find a guitar player  that is interested in making some songs through distance , my influences are killswitch engage , suicide silence and devildriver ,  i like new metal too .. I'm not looking for a band , i'm looking for features to be specific and i'm willing to take the process of the creation of the songs seriously . I would be really honored if someone helps me with this  , i hope that this forum works
    • I skip the more known (and excellent) demos of bands like Emperor, Burzum, Behemoth etc and focussed on more unknown bands, also I skipped professionally recorded studio demos.  Most of these tapes are to find on youtube, I don't post any videos here, because this would mess up performance of the thread.... Nordic inlfuenced black metal: Incarnator - Nordic Holocaust (1993) - close to Bathory, but still distinctive. No album followed after this. Thorns - Grymyrk og Tröndertun (1991) - This is the band whom it is believed they developed the nordic black metal riffing Baxaxaxa - Hellfire (1992) - Unknown masterpiece of early german black metal. No album followed after this. Enkil - Self-titled (1995) - US raw black metal from the mid-90s in norse traditions. No full-length album followed after this. Traditional german school black metal: Graupel - Als der Nebel... (2001)   - german school of black metal. one of the rawest stuff ever recorded Grabgesang - Of Medieval Graveyard Forests (1995) - german raw black metal, primitive and raw, with some catchy melodies. No full-length album followed after this. Pagan Winter - In the Shadowlands Polish black metal: Kataxu - North (1995) - Bizarre symphonic black metal, the terrible sound makes it even more fascinating Profanum - Under a Black Wings of Emperor (1994) - raw black metal with decent usage of keyboards Gontyna Kry - Welowie (1997) - early polish atmospheric black metal Thunderbolt - Black Clouds over Dark Majesty (1996) - Another gem of polish black metal Pagan Black Metal: Bergthron - Durch den Nebel der Finsternis (1995) - Combination of primitive, ultra-raw black metal with some folk melodies and clean vocals Falkenbach - Laeknishendr (1995) - Falkenbachs raw and weird beginning, more close to black metal than later works. Falkenbachs & Vargas' lost demos are a mysterium itself. Contemporary black metal (After 2000) Blutdersommer - Galgensang im Sternenfeuer (2002) - german apocalyptic raw black metal. No album followed after this. Kallathon - Before drifting into the Abyss (2009) - raw and cold US black metal in the unique style of the Crepuscúlo Negro bands Kuxan Suum - Kinich ahau (2010) - another, more progressive example of the Crepuscúlo Negro scene. Obscure stuff: Grausamkeit - Stardust (2000) - Black Metal meets Video Game music
