If you ask me "what kind" of black metal I prefer, I can basically answer you in three words: Lunar. Fucking. Aurora. (Or one word: Inquisition. But that's another post.)
Let's see here... Non-stop fucking blastbeat madness? Check. Croaky-frog-vomit vocals? Check. Semi-discordant tremolo riffing up the ass? Check. Raw, yet balanced production? Roger. Cheezy fucking symphonic/"atmospheric" keyboard riffs floating around somewhere in the background? Yup. There is nothing wrong with this band whatsoever. I heartily endorse them.
Lunar Aurora came from Bavaria, Germany (birthplace of Adam Weishaupt and the Illuminati, according to some), and pinched off nine solid full-length albums, two splits, and two demos during the course of their 12-year existence. Weltengänger was their first (and arguably best) long-player, and consists of 47+ minutes of unequivocal, unadulterated, vitriolic HATRED, SPEED, EVIL, VIOLENCE, and DEATH.
Sorry, Jesus, but you're pretty pathetic competition for something this good.

Lunar Aurora are indeed the "whole package." They are one of those bands that just got better and better, their last two albums are two of the best albums I've ever heard in my sweet, short life.

They run a record label too but I think its mostly dark, ambient music which is always a dicey proposition.

Nothing can add up to the incalculable amazingness of Lunar Aurora. NOTHING!
