The top hypnotic black metal tracks in my opinion.
Although it is not an actual sub-genre, various black metal bands take this approach where the atmosphere or the music induces the listener into a trance.
This specific style was pioneered by Burzum with the album Hvis Lyset Tar Oss. This list although is in no specific order and doesn’t include any track by Burzum.
What do you guys think are some bands or albums or even tracks that you would regard as hypnotic black metal or maybe are your favorites from this style? Would love to have some new music!
Farsot – Empyrean
Krallice – Forgiveness in Rot
Walknut – Motherland Ostenvegr
