Is there any album which can be compared to "The Mother And The Enemy" by Lux Occulta?

I tried Ihsahn's "After" - some songs of this album ("A Grave Inversed" especially) as close to that album as possible without losing your own identity. Never listened neither to Emperor nor to Ihsahn, but this one rocks! Fifth play in a row - last time it happened with "Supervillain Outcast". Maybe someone can recommend me some other albums like those ones? ("The Mother and The Enemy", "Supervillain Outcast", "After")

Perhaps because it was released simultaneously and the production is similar, ABIGOR - Fractal Possession reminds me a lot of Supervillain Outcast. Something similar to Mother & The Enemy is something I'd appreciate a lot too...!

Ohh... I tried this one some years ago - didn't like it at all. :(

Not for me, I think there is almost nothing similar between them (IMHO), but I love both of them so much!

I think it's the production - The guitars & drums have very similar sound, similar tight riffs, spacey synths. By no means is this a criticism. It's what I like so much about both recordings.

Just posted this in the Now Playing thread, too:

Galaktik Cancer Squad - Eroberer
A German one-man band doing spacey atmospheric black metal instrumentals. Some symphonic parts here and there, too. Very imaginative and interesting. Kind of lo-fi guitars and drums with some neat synth parts. Give it a chance. You can get the download links from the artist's own facebook page below.

I haven't seen anything about Giant Squid on the website - I highly recommend their albums Metridium Fields (2006) and Cenotes (2011).

Keep digging and eventually you will find a vein of gold - or at least something else of interest. Some time ago I decided to explore the Danish black metal scene simply because I like black metal a lot and have never heard anything from my country which is really good. Unfortunately my search revealed nothing. Apparently Danish black metal bands are far more concerned with obscurity than with writing good songs. We have tons of one-man bedroom bands releasing tapes and 7"s. After this disappointment I decided to explore the entire Danish metal scene, listening to everything that seemed interesting and was possible to find. This time some interesting contemporary things did turn up:

Blóðtrú - A Brighter Sun (2011)

This album has elements of both black metal and doom metal but you will also find ambient and unusual instruments such as the accordion. A highly atmospheric release.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlGDjhYyegc


Sanctus Daemoneon - The Unavoidable (2010)

This is quite unique. They may have been playing black/doom previously but the music here is mostly acoustic, electronic and sort of easy-going. The vocals are still harsh, though.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSmeig6yzic


Sol - Offer Thy Flesh To The Worms (2011)

Earlier releases by Sol have featured death/doom but this is acoustic doom/neofolk, also featuring the accordion. Very atmospheric. Sol also did a split with Blóðtrú.
(no youtube video for Sol, unfortunately)


Behind The Curtain - Till Birth Do Us Part (1999)

Last but not least, the only Danish band to play avant-garde metal that I know of. Incidentally, they are also one of the first Danish bands I saw live. They played at an unsigned bands festival after having completed their demo, Creation, which I bought and liked a lot. I did not keep track of them afterwards so I only discovered this album a couple of years ago. It features several songs from the demo and contains the same kind of technical yet atmospheric metal with piano and unusual clean vocals.

I haven't heard SOL nor BLODTRU apart, but their collaboration on Paradigms was amazing - very little BM though, more drone and doom. I heard an album from BLODFEST some weeks ago, reminded me a bit of KATHARSIS, which is great. Otherwise I've only heard this: http://www.discogs.com/Various-Gr%C3%A5 ... se/3102848 - which definitely counts as focusing on obscurity rather than songwriting... mainly in the punkish BONE AWL-vein, even though some of it is more like an overly distorted The CURE than anything remotely metal.

From that compilation I have only heard Garotte. I found their Count The Almonds 7" to be absolutely fucking awful, but hey, if others like it, then that is great. :lol:

In my previous post I forgot to mention one band that also features a very distinct sound:

Nortt - Ligfærd (2005)
This is one of the many one man bands and in Nortt's own words the music is "Pure Depressive Black Funeral Doom Metal". That probably sounds a bit pretentious but it is not an incorrect tag, either. The music is very slow and reminds me a bit of Abruptum's one real song. What is interesting about Nortt is that instead of being obscure, this is music that a lot of people listen to. Three full-length albums and a handful of demos and other releases have resulted in nearly 780,000 plays and 22,000 listeners on last.fm, which I think is quite impressive. The latest album was also released on Avantgarde Music.

Ah that's right, I have that Count The Almonds 7" too. Not that great no :) I think many of those bands are too stuck on the noiserock/crust thing - there's not enough metal vibe in it.

True, NORTT Was really hypedup there for a while, when the whole depressive thing with Xasthur took off - guess the early THR releases helped him quite a bit. Nothing I appreciate that much though, that style of music - too thin, soundwise.

THR?

I do not think I am going to invest in Nortt either but it was nice to hear something so different from these parts.

Total Holocaust Records, the Gothenburg label in many ways responsible for all that "depressive suicidal bm" junk that was spewed out in the mid-00's. Lifelover and all that. Great label in some ways, deplorable in other!

Interesting doom-oriented music, ... some is very heavy doom metal, some is actually very mellow and droney, kind of like Earth.

Here's his personal website - he also does graphic design.

I would recommend Isten Háta Mögött, a hungarian, kinda stoner-like progressive metal/rock band. Really innovative stuff. Especially their first three albums. Can't understand anything about the lyrics, but hungarian sounds nice!
