Best Black Metal BandsAvAtArA

One of the best Black Metal bands and easily the top symphonic/gothic Black Metal band. The first 4-5 albums were masterpieces! The lyrics and sound were incredible. Once they made it to the mainstream and realized they could make more money by making easier, slower, and more shallow music, they did. I can't blame them. $$$ but Nymphetamine and Thornography were pretty bad and not very black. The last 2 albums were somewhere in the middle
I don't believe they are so down in the list... Maybe it's because they aren't black metal, but gothic
The first 4-5 albums were basically a gothic black metal. They were great then but the last 5 albums have been more commercial.

This is a top tier bait - maverick88
They're too good for black metal, why are they here?V 1 Comment
Fantastic band. Just no where close to BM. They are Goregrind/melodic death metal not BM
They're an amazing band, but they seem more Doom Metal or Heavy Metal than Black Metal. I mean, they do have properties of Black Metal, but they aren't though - SirSkeletorThe3rd
They're awesome, but how in God's name are they black metal?
They look black metal as &%@! but they are nowhere near it musically - ryanrimmel
