I am looking for good and worthwhile Black Metal solely with themes about Norse mythology and history without the cliche folk flute/medieval lyre background sound.

Also not looking for bedroom drum machine wotan mit uns NSBM crap or the darkened northernland snow elves fantasy MMORPG lyrics.

It can still have some few folk elements on it such as occasional keyboards, acoustic instrumentals/intros, samples, sound effects, and etc, but it needs to be primarily Black Metal without being driven by folk instruments from start to finish.

The few I know of are:

-Some of Bathory of course

-Enslaved

-Kampfar

-Vargafrost

There are some Ván classics, too, of course. Nagelfar, Kermania etc. Especially in the early days, many Ván bands (some have ceased to exist) were pagan themed.

Hades - Dawn of the Dying Sun is the best album I know in this style.

Nachtfalke and the first Helheim album are also highly recommended. That Helheim album is the closest thing I’ve heard to early Enslaved and is somehow rarely mentioned.

In Battle - The Rage Of The Northmen and I'm not even kidding.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFnO9tx8jWc
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZrlPTGjmLE

Helheim - Jormundgand (and Av Norron Aett)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zk7fXXPcb_I

Dråpsnatt maybe...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsMce9JsyMU

Havukruunu probably...

I'll see if others pop in mind later. Right now I need to pop someone in Hitman 2.

Forgot to mention: this is the most historical and serious band you’ll likely find on the subject:

Wish I could buy it, last Hitman I got was the last one that came out in 2012, entertainment is expensive these days.

Anyhow, back to the topic, sort of, this made me remember of Månegarm, I used to listen to it years ago (it has folk instruments so it should not be counted in here), is it worth listening? if so, which albums to hear and what to avoid?

Haha, awesome. I always liked how you can crouch before someone and he'll literally start flying if you blast him with ballers in the head.

Edit: Well fuck, I was talking about Silent Assassin...

You are 100% right! this is perhaps the closest to what I am looking for, serious concept based around Norse literature.

And I remember of Árstíðir, I perhaps listened to just some few songs by them but then I stopped paying attention, I had no idea where they went after all these years.

These are some from the top of my head right now, all old Norwegian bands:

- the mighty AETERNUS (Norse warrior & dark mysticism thematics)

- the last two albums from EINHERJER (the old ones also have these Norse themes but I don't like their old albums)

- the awesome HELHEIM (Norse mythology & philosophy)

- the wild TULUS (Norse scary & grim folktales and the macabre)

- the groovy and wicked KHOLD (the same guys as TULUS - similar thematics)

- the hypnotic and savage TRELLDOM (Norse mysticism)

- the epic and vicious old ULVER (Norse dark folktales & nature)

Quick heads up, if you know about various dark mysticism/folktales-themed BM, remember to post some of these in the Dark Fantasy/Medieval BM thread as well.

Månegarm were at their best on the demos, which have been compiled on CD. Nordstjärnans Tidsålder is otherwise good, but the sound could have been better without the annoying high frequency hiss. I didn't check the following albums but maybe it's about time.

Also also: Twin Obscenity's first two albums. Skyforger maybe.

Early Old Man's Child, alongside with Windir and Kampfar are the best at it. Don't forget Satyricon's Dark Medieval Times and The Shadowthrone.
