Post here some good BM with medieval or otherwise some grim/dark/morbid fantasy lyrics and themes, there has already been a similiar thread 6 years ago but it did not really offer much.

http://nwnprod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=28980

And by Medieval, I mean from at least 1st to 17th centuries AD, if you are going to post something as fantasy, then post something that looks like it has a theme from that time period, or more ancient-looking stuff such as those from LOTR (pretty easy as the majority of BM is based on).

Since the bands mentioned in that old thread are too much modern goth romantic Wampyres/Warwulves of Transylvania in the 1800s and neo-Vikings/Pagans from Scandinavia/Eastern Europe in 1996, not really medieval.

In preference, no Symphonic BM, please, but if you still think it is good anyways, then it is alright to comment (i.e. Abigor's Nachthymnen), and being realistic, I think that it will be hard to find Medieval BM without any symphonic elements.

-Abigor (that part on 0:59 sounds like it was directly sourced from an old DOS knight battle RPG game)

-Absurd, mainly the Raubritter EP, love that intro, gives a village peasants playing lutes vibe.

-Arkona (Poland)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OywXtuF5hbU
-Graveland

Let us make a good playlist, post here the musical equivalent to this art which has been used as album covers at least 100 times:

Satyricon - "Dark Medieval Times" immediately comes to mind.

How about Mightiest's and Depressive Silence's debut split demo? I think it fits the dark fantasy material very much.

Yeah, the basics are pretty easy to find, so I did not even bother to mention this one.

Obsequiae masterfully weaves traditional (medieval) themes into their captivating blend of blackened heavy metal. Probably not exactly what you asked for seeing that this is not your pedigree kind of black metal band, but I'd strongly recommend listening to Obsequiae nonetheless.

https://bindrunerecordings.bandcamp.com/album/suspended-in-the-brume-of-eos

https://listen.20buckspin.com/album/aria-of-vernal-tombs-2


That aside Norwegian Dies Irae comes to my mind instantly as this band, personally, is one of the best examples of raw and stripped down medieval black metal.

Sühnopfer and Aorlhac

I don't speak French, but these two bands sure seem heavily medieval themed.

Godkiller - Rebirth if the Middle Ages.

Absolutely killer.

Also if you can handle the cheese...

Nazgul -De Expugnatione Elfmuth.

It is truly one of the best in the genre.

I second these two as well. That Nazgul album is terribly underrated.

What if both band members wear the Mask of Vulcan? ...its sort of a medieval helmet although the music is nothing associated with the time period.

Bal-sagoth - starfire burning upon the ice - veiled throne of ultima thule.

Possibly the best fantasy themed album ever in my opinion
