    How can someone make a comparison between German and Swiss BM and forget Heimdalls Wacht, Nachtfalke or Monnblood on one side and Eisenwinter on the other side?

    Either way, German BM is well superior anyway, actually I'd say that it rivals, probably exceeds Norway for BM. The wealth of different approaches and themes tackled is huge in both countries, but subjectively speaking I much prefer German BM seen as a whole, much that has come out of Norway in the past 10 years or so is a little cliché.

    One could argue that Finland rivals Germany for genius in BM, but that's not a Germanic country, so Germany certainly wins hands-down in the "all-Germanic comparison".
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Dream on Siggyboy New projects like Selvhat (RIP) are some of the best we have to offer. About being cliché, but since when did modern black metal start to be about being original? I would say that there are tons of non-Norwegian bands being cliché also.

    I second that.
    In my opinion it's almost laughable to compare these two.
    But well i don't want to offend anyone whose opinion is different of course.

    Yes, Finland and Germany exceed all other countrys in my view.
    Just listen to the raw power of Vordr. My favourite Finnish BM-Band. (and maybe even favourite bm overall)

    I've never liked any sort of metal. In my experience extreme metal is used by people who have had a sheltered upbringing to rebel against their vapid home life. I'm not kidding, extreme metal fans are almost exclusively grown men who still live with their mums in my experience.

    Attending for Germany:
    Absurd - no comment on that crap
    Endstille - live cool, on cd boring nonsense
    Nagelfar - about the only band here able for battling
    Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult - unique, yes; good, rather not
    Bergthron - nice, but not really great
    Nordglanz - depends, the chosen song surely wins nothing
    ________________________

    Attending for Switzerland:
    Samael - the spear of Swiss metal
    Amon - who?
    Morgart - what? (3 out of 10 points for their Türme album, crap)
    Hellhammer - another spear
    Moonfrost - nice, but not more
    Menegroth - same here

    So the battle is played by Samael / Hellhammer against DNS / Nagelfar. Who wins that? The Swiss of course.

    Just good that this is not the creme of German black metal, if this were all we had to offer I'd say, please people stop playing black metal

    There are much better bands who'd vaporise the Swiss... biased selection?
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Sorry to disappoint, I live with my grandparents.
