Tenebrae in Perpetuum - Onori Funebri Rituali (2003)

Beatrik - Journey Through the End of Life (2002)
Tenebrae in Perpetuum - L'Eterno Maligno Silenzio (2009)

Tenebrae in Perpetuum's first full-length -- and one of my favorite black metal records -- Onori Funebri Rituali has a haunting, mysterious feel and sound, but never diverges from the path of purest, blackest metal.

Track listing:
1. Onori Funebri Rituali
2. Al Di La Della Nebbia
3. Verso L'Apocalisse
4. Oscure Presenze
5. Anime Silenziose
6. Delirio Nella Cripta
7. Quegli Occhi
8. Gli Abissi Di Pisorno

  1. Hey there - question for you. Let's say you met someone who had NO IDEA what you are talking about in terms of metal. Death Metal, Black Metal, Doom Metal, etc. - whatevs. And they asked you for a listening guide - what would you list? For the sake of simplicity - because metal heads tend to be fuckin' JESUITICAL in their definitions and splinterings - we'll just say three of each What would you say are the three best exemplar / albums of each Genre? Say: Death Metal, Black Metal, Doom Metal, Drone Metal, and another of your choice.

    1. OK, here's what I came up with after very little consideration. Each of these is a (relatively) early 'classic' of their subgenre.

      Emperor - In the Nightside Eclipse
      Darkthrone - Transilvanian Hunger
      Burzum - Filosofem

      Morbid Angel - Altars of Madness
      Incantation - Diabolical Conquest
      Suffocation - Pierced from Within

      Candlemass - Epicus Doomicus Metallicus
      Thergothon - Stream from the Heavens
      Katatonia - Brave Murder Day

      Earth - Earth 2
      Sunn O))) - 00 Void
      Boris - Amplifer Worship

      How 'bout SLUDGE?
      Grief - Come to Grief
      Eyehategod - Come to Grief
      Noothgrush - Erode the Person

      Hope this helps!
