I hold this album, "Filosofem" by Burzum, to be some of the more powerful, emotionally moving and depressing black metal out there. The monotony, the screeching vocals, the shit-ass (perfect) production, etc, makes it a fantastic black metal record. I am, though, yet to find something in the similar vein.

Although I have a hard time buying the whole depressive suicidal bullshit, i have scanned that genre in search for something that bears similarity to Burzum's opus, without considerable success. Less "i really want to die and i am so sad but somehow i wont kill myself because i am an attentionwhore piece of shit" and more of that suffocating, depressive, utterly sullen atmospheric brand of black metal which constitutes "Filosofem".

So, any recommendations?

I'd personally recommend VEIL (U.S.). Very atmospheric, raw, competent Burzum worship.

Abyssic Hate "Suicidal Emotions", if you can get past the depressed image/lyrics.

Good mix of Filosofem and Brave Murder Day/Discouraged Ones era Katatonia (without the clean vocals)

None really, it's an album that's hard to worship through music.

Velvet Cacoon. I'm fairly sure of that most of their music was composed while jerking off to Filosofem and arguing with me on FMP so I guess you might enjoy them if you're into late Burzum.

Or pins-tapping-sheets-of-A4 drums, opened soda can sizzle guitar sound and 2:00 to 2:15 AM bedroom riffs worth 2 pennies. Yeah if you can get past these AND the depressed image, I'm sure it's a great album.

I never thought this album was depressing or sad or anything like that. I often see it tagged as such. Sounds more reflective and introspective to me. Maybe I could see that comparison being drawn on the most broad basic sonic levels (raw black metal) - but the 'feeling' is totally different for me. Just my useless .02.

TOBC's debut album does sound like it's the sequel to "Filosofem":

TOBC - Heart of Darkness CD

"Jesu Död" style galloping drumming'n'all: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIneXsj2tpM

The title track of the album is pretty much a total "Det Som En Gang Var" rip-off though:

I fully agree on the notion that the album holds significantly more qualities and atmospheres than the average "DSBM" album from the 2000's, and I think "reflective" and "introspective" is two very suitable words to describe the album. Never seen it in that way, but you have a good point. The whole album just seems.. personal. Sobbing with insight, determination, will and introspection.

The atmosphere just seeps of strong, vivid emotion; tranquility and hatred/gloominess at the same time. Fantastic album, too bad he didn't record other songs for it as well. Would've loved to hear "Ea" , "My Journey to the Stars", or "Det som En Gang Var" in Filosofem versions.

Suicidal Emotions is a good album, but it has nothing do do with Filosofem.
