The top 10 / top 25 and top 50 best depressive atmospheric black metal of all times
Darkness and emptiness is the drawing board of the universe, you are just a play of light on it.
There are only a handful of artist that can really touch this void. It is a surrender beyond life itself. It is the end of all where nothing follows. Yet this end, this nothingness, emptiness is the reason why everything is.
Life is a contradiction where words cannot help anymore. Only the artist can reveal its true nature...
These are the 50 best Atmospheric Black Metal artists I know of that when you listen to them over and over again you still love it.
The master of the Atmospheric black art: Wintherr (Tobias Möckl)
Gletschertor is in my opinion the best song ever of Wintherr. I do not know how many times over the past decade I have listened to this song, but ever since it came out in 2002 I fell in love with it. It is found on the Deutsche Schwarze Tonträgerkunst Compilation. Later in 2003 a better quality came out on Black Metal Mafia Records called Schneesturm (Blizzard). Paysage D'Hiver (Winter landscape) is already my number one black metal band and this song tops it all.
1) Paysage D'Hiver
2) Midnight Odyssey
7) Chaos Moon
11) Violet cold
12) Caladan Brood
19) Sorrow Plagues
22) The lost sun
23) Basarabian Hills
Maybe an odd one as many would describe this as happy metal -
25) My useless life
29) Ethereal Shroud
31) Nord frost
32) A Diadem Of Dead Stars
33) Woods of Desolation
34) Eternal Valley
- Hin is just a masterpiece, even though I do not like the other stuff that much, it deserves to be in the list just because of that number -
41) Earth and Pillars
42) Old graves
46) Year of no light
49) From the sunset, forest and Grief
50) Perennial Isolation
Now there are some masterpieces that should be in the list above but are more in the direction of doom or missing the Atmospheric touch, so I like to mention them anyway:
Life is pain
Not really Atmospheric - but what a masterpiece this is. Too bad they split up.
Waste of Life
Make a change... Kill yourself
Lost in desolation
Shroud of distress
For a top 100 in the future these great albums should be part of it:
