Ha Lela
Poccolus
Anubi
Valefar
Zpoan Vtenz

These bands were magical. Does anyone know of more recent stuff that sounds like anything resembling that scene? Are there any great ones I'm leaving off the list?

You should come to Tallinn, Estonia, for Howls of Winter festival as it always features bands from that region or around of it. Try also Forgotten Path zine to search for more info: http://www.forgotten-path.lt/

I strongly believe that the entire Lithuanian or Baltic Pagan Black Metal scene of the 90s was somehow special. Sure, nostalgy plays huge role here, but can't do anything about it. Poccolus, Ha Lela. Zpoan Vtenz was like an unholy trinity for me! Later on Angis or Ugnėlakis continued in similar vain. Add early Dissimulation as well. Actually, I don't think nowadays or even at that time you could find anything similar with the same passion and aura. On the other hand, Estonia had their bands on the share, with some specific hints and authenticity, like Tharaphita, Manatark, or Kalm. For me personally bands from Russia (Thy Repentance) or Ukraine (Nokturnal Mortum) had similar emotional level at that time. But today I don't find any bands, who continue on the same aural and spiritual level.

Anubi, on the contrary, were not as Pagan, but they were much unique. Truly unique, I would say.

On the other hand, Valefar from musical stand point, wasn't anything special, imho. Yes, they had some hints, but take any other raw and primitive BM act, and you will hear similar noise. What made them special for me, were their lyrics, that were created by Martynas Meškauskas (from Anubi) - absolute masterpiece of dark death poems!

Nahash is another story, I would say. Much more traditional BM than all those mentioned above. "Forgotten Path" probably has nothing to with fiding similar bands, except for the fact that we interviewed Nahash recently. I had ideas for an article about Lithuanian BM scene of 90s, but that will require enormous time and effort costs, so I'm not sure if I ever will be ready to take that task on.

I came here to mention Angis.

This seems to be a good source: https://www.youtube.com/user/LithuanianMetalTapes/videos

Although more recent, Sőjaruun also has some interesting songs, e.g. Tumehall (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkCh49vitps). To my surprise, Thonolan also played session drums on Bekëth Nexëhmü's De Glömdas Ursjälar. He's also pretty much the only person keeping the local scene alive.

Hmm... It looks like Baltic states have solid, but overlooked BM scene.

Anubi always struck me as very much in line with Master's Hammer.
