I believe that metal communities are more united and stronger than the rest out there. The reason is because we are very passionate and dedicated not only to some type of music but an entire culture. Often misunderstood, metal societies hold up no matter what  because we support each other, we share similar visions and passionately stand behind them. That’s the way it is’s supposed to be, that’s fucking metal! In the same spirit I’d like to dedicate an article to two websites that have been a personal inspiration for a very long time. Here we go now..

Best Black Metal Albums

Best Black Metal Albums or often referred as BBMA is an online database with a sophisticated review/filter system that stores over 10 000 kickass records. Ranging from the most popular to some that you may not know of their existence at all. Over there you can search bands and albums by awards,  year, genre, countryrating etc. A massive source of quality music where you can surely find what you’re eager to listen to. It’s just a matter of taking some of your time and dig into the piles of albums that they have at your disposal.


Are radio stations old-fashioned nowadays? There’s no definite answer because this is up to every individual. However, I often turn to the good old radio where I occasionally  spot on some really good stuff and end up thinking that we should never forget this valuable source of music. Death.FM is my personal favorite and I thought I should recommend it to you (if you haven’t heard of it) or at least remind you. Behind this radio there is a passionate team of metalheads that make sure to update their database with newest albums  as often as possible. Death.FM has many features and the ones I like the most are “make a request” and “see what’s next or what’s been played”.  Not only can you discover new stuff by putting the radio on and listen to what’s being played at the moment but also check out the latest added items to the website. In other words, Death.FM is another incredible place for finding exceptional music. In order to be more comfortable for you, I’ve added a button to the main menu that will lead you directly to the radio. Now go hunting!


  1. Yes. I’ve visited the Best Black Metal Album site before. Quite a useful database. Some people have been critical of it since they don’t agree with the rating given for a particular album. But they should understand that the rating itself is merely opinion and no rating site is going to publish scores that always line up with your personal taste. Instead, the site is an excellent database that should be used to introduce you to new music. Focus on what is said about each album and you’ll be able to glean useful information and filter the types of albums that you’d likely enjoy and should check out.

    So keeping in mind what I just said, here is their top 100 list: http://www.bestblackmetalalbums.com/top_100_black_metal_albums.php

    • I totally agree with you, Deron. Scores and ratings are in most cases irrelevant because they cannot stand for everybody’s personal taste/opinion. That’s why we have media (music videos, songs, images) to give everybody an opportunity to make his own impression. This reminds me that the only feature BBMA lacks is more media presentation (like free samples to listen to in every album that they have in store). However, that’s just an insignificant fact in comparison to what they prodive on a large scale.
