Here is The Codex Necro by English black metal duo Anaal Nathrakh. This album was released in 2001, being their third release. I'm not a huge black metal fan, I don't describe myself as kvlt, grimm, or frostbitten. And as such there isn't much the black metal scene has to offer me, sure I like the artistic sounds of bands such as Nifelheim and Mayhem. And maybe a few others like Godless Cruelty. But I'm no huge on the scene like some of the other contributors/most of the metal forum. However, Anaal Nathrakh is a band I can readily get in to, they mix together industrial, death metal, and grindcore onto a black metal palette. I figured this album would be appropriate since Halloween is fast approaching, and this music is very grimm and kvlt, not so frostbitten, but it is grimm and kvlt.
