A Northern Meadow (Profound Lore)
On a playlist with: Amiensus, Barren Earth
Listen A Northern Meadow full stream (here)

If your current library of black metal is missing a space-out album, then add A Northern Meadow. Clean vocals and Devin Townsend-esque amounts of layers atop decisively blackened metalgaze. Tune in and tune out with this one.

Death Be Thy Shepherd (Static Tension)
On a playlist with: Bludvera, Xentrix, Tormenter
Listen Death Be Thy Shepherd full stream (here)

Rule: the question is “why” and the answer is “just because!” Albums like Death Be Thy Shepherd show what’s carefree and fun about metal: laser riffs and simple drumming and high-pitched wailing… and every song pretty much sounds the same. But, it’s useful if you have a little playlist for driving music.

Blind…But Alive (Klonosphere)
On a playlist with: Arch Enemy and Soreption’s 7-year-old son
Listen “I Am Not” and “Scapegoat” (here)

Yeah, you should be following this band. Blind…But Alive is one of those gems which really bursts subgenres: there’s bits of nu-metal, deathcore, technical death metal, etc., all broken apart. But most importantly, it’s done with aplomb and groooove, which means despite all the complexity, you’ll find yourself bobbing your head and/or shaking a Shake Weight!

Moonlover (Northern Silence)
On a playlist with: Deafheaven, An Autumn For Crippled Children
Listen Manlover full stream (here)
Read David Lee Rothmund MetalSucks review (here)

To those who tuned into my review of Moonlover, I say cheers! To those who didn’t, I say: It is a peach! If you’re waiting to survey the new wave of post-y black metal, now the time is ripe.

A Umbra Omega (Peaceville)
On a playlist with: Van Buens Ende, Aborym, Manes
Listen A Umbra Omega full stream (here)

A black metal album can be massive in scope. No question the same goes for A Umbra Omega, but then again maybe Dodheimsgard overreached a bit on this one. Some of the vocals are awkward and the mid-song genre shifts are incessant. But then again maybe the weirder ones of you will dig this!

Father MurphyFather Murphy
Croce (The Flenser)
On a playlist with: The Mars Volta, Blonde Redhead’s , the art teacher in Ghost World
Listen “So This Is Permanent” (here)

You’re already like, Who or what the fuck is Father Murphy. Well, it’s weird shit like this and this. And now you’re like: Whoa, who the fuck is Father Murphy?!
