    Check a few pages, and there doesn't seem to be any threads made about this group. Garm is a genious. I have about 4 of their albums, and I have pretty much the rest of their discography on my "to buy" list, except the black metal stuff. Don't get me wrong I like black metal but their black metal stuf wasn't that great. However their electronic stuff is just so awesome I can't describe it. Perdition City has been a favourite of mine for a long time, but I haven't put Blood Inside down since it came out. It's a total 180 on the minimalistic approach they'd taken. Any other fans on OT? :x:

    My god, I have The Madrigal of Night, and that shit is unbearable to listen to, it's just funny. I listen to Slayer, At The Gates, Nile etc etc, but this stuff, is just COMPLETE noise. I haven't heard any of their electronic stuff though.

    There's a whole variety of stuff. I recommend everything from "Themes from William Blake's Marriage of Heaven and Hell" onwards.

    I love there BM stuff, but haven't really listened to there electronic/experimental stuff, which I'm told is quite good also.

    Bergtatt and Nattens Madrigal are both BM classics, and were intentionally recorded in poor quality to give the music a raw feel, which is quite common in BM, but takes a bit of getting used to. Garms other BM projects are generally quite good as well (Borknager & Arcturus).

    Yeah but only on there self titled album, I think Andreas Hedlund of Vintersorg handles all the vocals nowadays.

    Give Bergtatt a listen, its a gem of an album and is heavily folk influenced, and therefore not too harsh on the ears.

    I, honestly, like their Black Metal stuff a lot. Its taken me a while to get used to, but it seems to have been worth the wait; I truly enjoy it now. On the other hand, the electronic tunes hooked me from the start, providing such an atmospheric mood. I can listen to the electronic stuff all day long. Its truly beautiful music.
