Svartsyn has to be one of the most underrated swedish Black Metal bands ever. There was a point when I was sure NED would sign them, but it strangely never happened. "...His Majesty" is way up there with Salvation, Casus etc. The secret jewel of orthodox Black Metal.

I checked out Timeless Reign on a whim last year, enjoyed it quite a bit. It's still the only material I've heard, but I did buy that recent 7" during the NWN! sale, the one with the weird/colorful cover.

FANTASTIC and deeply underrated band. Nostalgic reasons would pull me towards His Majesty, but I think Timeless Reign is their peak. The ugliness of the original version of The True Legend is great too.

Haven't heard the 2012 version; how do the two compare?

I'd like to hear some opinions on this one as well.

Both His.. and Skinning.. are godly. Yet with exceptions of their latest efforts and the first album their discography is almost flawless.

One of the most overlooked band of the last 15 years. They're better than so many other bands that pay a similar style, including Watain.

This is one of the few I never even looked up. I've heard something from them, but I can't remember what exactly. Some controversy about the band wreaking havoc at a graveyard or mortuary wasn't quite enough inspiration either. What's the story?

Someone convince me. Discovering older bands is a rare treat nowadays.

The rerecorded The True Legend is much better for me. I just love the band. My vote goes to Timeless Reign, the split with Arckanum is also my fave.

"The True Legend" & "...His Majesty" are their best albums. I voted for "The True Legend", because I really enjoy the atmosphere in the songs.

I'm not a fan of the rest of their discography, but ...His Majesty is really fucking good. The sound alone makes it worth it.
