Another small update, in preparation for some larger changes further down the road.
Update 06/04/2017: The issue has now been fixed.
As you may have already noticed, the site's search engine is undergoing some technical difficulties at the moment, and it may be some time before it's fixed. Meanwhile, we recommend you use the following alternatives:
- Search Black Metal albums by band » - Search Black Metal albums by genre » - Search Black Metal albums by year » - Search Black Metal albums by country »
Apologies for any inconvenience, and thanks for your patience while we fix this. [»]
This update focuses primarily on the news section and bug fixes.
This update focuses primarily on the search engine and site performance.
We've made some minor adjustments to the site, and added a couple of new features. There is now a News Archive section which should be even more self-explanatory.
In addition to this, there have been a host of other minor changes across the site which are too numerous and unimportant to mention, but collectively they should greatly improve user experience. We've also updated the design slightly in order to make sure that the design elements are consistent and aesthetically pleasing across the entire site. As always, if you detect any issues, don't hesitate to contact us. More minor changes ... [»]
Today marks one year since we last posted anything in our news section (which as it happens is nothing more than a timely coincidence). Despite the site's news section being left in a state of complete abandon for the last year due to time constraints and life in general, we have still been working occasionally on the site behind the scenes, adding new albums here and there, optimizing this and that, and doing general site maintenance, although most of our limited time has been spent sorting through all the album contributions which our users have been submitting, and preparing ...

UPDATE 29/05/2013: We are proud to announce that BestBlackMetalAlbums.com will be featured on the next 10 editions of "War Metal", a weekly radio show which is hosted by Matheus H. Guerra on Dark Radio Brazil, starting this Thursday, May 30th. This differs greatly from our original announcement on Sunday, where we announced that the site would only be featured on one show.

The "War Metal" show goes live every Thursday at 21:00 BRT (every Friday at 2:00 CEST), and is dedicated almost exclusively to the world of Black Metal. Each week's show is also repeated on the ... [»]
Just a quick note to let everyone know that we haven't forgotten about the site. We soon intend to publish all the pending news articles which we have been gathering over the last two months, and we are also going to expand our album database with 1,000 additional albums including many new releases from 2013.
We have added a few more changes to the site as some of you may have noticed, most notably the "News Search" function in the News sidebox, a "Related News" section which appears on each individual News article page showing related news items, and also News Tag links which also allow ... [»]
We have revamped the site's search engine this week, addressing various performance issues and also making the results more accurate. The search function now returns results at least 10 times faster than it did before, while the Search by Band functions are now at least 15 times faster than they were before.
Other notable changes are the "Recommended Album" sidebox, which now works independently and refreshes in real time without having to reload the entire page. The same functionality has been applied to the "Similar Albums" box that can be found at the bottom on any album profile. This ... [»]
U.S. Black Metal band Von have just released their second full length album, which is titled "Dark Gods: Seven Billion Slaves". The album was released on the 22nd of March, only six months after the release of their first full length, "Satanic Blood".
That said, "Satanic Blood" consisted of many songs which the band had already written for their 1992 demo (also titled "Satanic Blood"), so this new album is practically the band's first release to feature entirely new material in 21 years.
The album was released through the bands proprietary ... [»]
