This is the second of several posts on some of the best, and often criminally ignored, black metal bands to come out of the UK. Many are still active, some are not, but every one deserves a lot more attention. This isn’t about “supporting the national scene”, or anything unreasonably posi like that. It’s about paying fealty to great artistic creations. The best British Black Metal is isolationist music, created by and for the solitary, with little to no input from others in the “scene”. These posts are a celebration of that anchoritic spirit, and the close bond it often has with the landscape and eccentricities of these islands.
