I found these two bands from playing the demo of Undead Knights, which honestly, seemed like such a sick game at the time, that I'm still mystified by it's existence to this day.
This one is probably my favorite, I got the split between these two bands (the one from above, and this one below) with this track in it's natural element, but this is the only version on youtube I can find;
Really just posting here to have dominion over all the boards. Real Painter is everywhere hours.

No doubt this band is well-known on this forum due to their fantastic take on folklore and the classic German BM style. www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYNy25sZ1JE At any rate, I don't think they get nearly the credit they deserve. Their style of music never grows old, and in fact they're one of the artists who introduced me to the style in the first place. Their early albums are amazing, and I love the more grandiose spin they've put on this new imagining of their most recent album. Any others have some favorites from this band?
Also, in agreement with Balin regarding Ultra Silvam, and have been meaning to purchase this album and "Spearwound" for a while now.
This somewhat ties into my last post - no wonder since the Germans have such a flair for this sort of "epic" Black Metal and Dungeon Synth. Have been checking out the artists on this tape label lately... helhallen.bandcamp.com/merch
Hey Emerge, thanks for the mention of Gates of Dawn - this led down a very welcome rabbit-hole of checking out some related projects and the Death Hymns label. Interesting band with a somewhat-unique approach to the style. It's always great when more "raw" artists mix some unique keyboard parts in.
Is there any enthusiasm here for Iku-Turso and related artists? Personally, I think they've released some of the greatest stuff on the face of the Earth in recent years. korpituli.bandcamp.com/music
