Overall, to be honest, Dimmu Borgir. Yes, I know there are the posers who claim to like them and whatnot blah blah blah, but I'm a for real fan of the band. They have heaviness, melody, symphonies (later album, that is,) Vortex is amazing, etc. My favorite albums are Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia and Stormblast. Two totally different albums from different eras for Dimmu, but those two would have to be my favorites. Now, as for "true" black metal, it's hard to say. There's so many great ones. I <3 Darkthrone's "Transilvanian Hunger" album :p: Pure Holocaust is a killer one from Immortal (Unsilent Storms in the North Abyss :headbang: ) early Emperor, Unholy Matrimony, etc. Several great ones, and too damn many to name just one. Not to mention there's tons of unknown ones! Overall, to be honest, Dimmu Borgir.

Burzum. It just has to be. One man, one band, and four kick-ass BM albums. Such creativity and talent to be able to play all those instruments. Best song Key To The Gate. Sweetest (and easiest) solo in BM ever! Burzum. It just has to be. One man, one band, and four kick-ass BM albums. Such creativity and talent to be able to play all those instruments.

My current favorite black metal bands are Windir (RIP Valfar), Sargeist, and Xasthur. My CDs I ordered of them came in the other day, and they're amazing.

Gorgoroth and Immortal have to share the throne of BM in my book. I like tons of other bands too, but those two where the ones that got me in to in the first place.

My list changes constantly but Carpathian Forest, Vlad Tepes, Mutiilation, Horna, Barathrum, Beherit and Gorgoroth have stayed up there for a long time. Root stays up there too, but its kind of hard to really define them as being just Black Metal.

Recently I have been getting in to Melodic Black Metal. I just like the cool guitar still infused with the badass lyrics and atmosphere. SO right now, either Dissection or Ancient.

Emperor, the name itself attracted my attention before I got into BM.
When I heard I Am the Black Wizards for the first time... I had trouble picking my jaw off of the floor.

BATHORY - Good 'ol Quorthon recorded his first few albums in his garage while his neighbours walked their dogs and mowed the lawns in fear. If that doesn't sum up Black Metal, then nothing ever will.

I love Burzum, Mayhem, Deathspell Omega, Katharsis, Taake, Carpathian Forest, Von, Gorgoroth, Marduk, Dark Funeral, Clandestine Blaze, Sarcofago, 1349, Sargeist, Aborym, Antaeus, and, of course Darkthrone. I would say a personal fave though is Celtic Frost. I got to meet them after a show when they were touring for "Monotheist". They were really nice. The remains of Celtic Frost have a new band Triptykon. Their cd "Eparistera Daimones" is awesome! I recommend it.

My favorite black metal band right now is Watain; I love their riffs and honestly? My favorite music is mostly all Hair Metal, but I really like their sound. Keep of Kalessin I like too, I guess 'cause of the melodic aspect. Venom also, but I probably like them more so as a NWOBHM band. The obvious ones too, Darkthrone, Emperor, and Marduk. But I also really like Wyrd, they were the first black metal band I started getting into, Ghost Album is great, very ambient.
