Absu. No doubt about it. None of the other bands come even near the songwriting qualities of Shaftiel and Equitant. Though Absu is more a mix of black/death/thrash like Destroyer 666 and the aussie scene,or Desaster,Urn etc.

The revived Absu is unfortunately barely above average. It misses the trade-off vocals 'twixt Proscriptor and shaftiel,catchy refrains and...well,just about everything that made the first 4 fullengths awesome. I've seen them twice live with the new line-up and the quality difference between the new and old stuff is undeniable.

I would like to know why the greatest USBM act of all time didn't make the list namely, TYPHUS. Not only the greatest USBM but one of the very best in the world in league with the masters EMPEROR, IMMORTAL, DARKTHRONE, and MAYHEM. Just check out the reviews that the debut album got on Metal Archives for any further proof needed. Needless to say I voted for none of the above.

Some Points:
1) You are a tool.
2) The reason that your band is not on this list is because of point # 1
3) Your bands lyrics are on the same level intellectually as ones that would be written by a cartoon character "satanist" with down syndrome who fell down several flights of stairs, suffered a traumatic brain injury and then began writing his thoughts on Jesus and the virgin Mary.
4) Are you related to Mike "Bathym" from Perdition?
5) Are you Mike "Bathym" from Perdition ?
6) Either point 5 OR 6 would explain everything, especially why your joke band is not on this poll.

Nightbringer seems to get a lot of praise here, I'll have to check it out.

Major faux-pas leaving out Negative Plane.
No, not really. Leaving GBK out is though.

I gave some love to Lurker of Chalice. The debut is a masterpiece... Absu in close second.

Love it or hate it, say what you will about it.. but the states have NOT released some fantastic black metal in the last two decades or so, with the exception of a few obvious bands.

Feel free to add whomever I didn't mention it.


Why are Nightbringer, Negative Plane and Averse Sefira not on this list? Those 3 + Absu & Inquisition are my top 5.

Demoncy is by a very very long way the best USBM band for me. Reading through this thread made me realize that I only listen to about 3-4 BM bands from this country with any regularity at all.

It's a sad state! (or states I guess)
