I am a real noob when it comes to black metal, but so far the only band I liked is Burzum. The reason for this is that, in my opinion, most black metal bands are not metal. They sound more like hardcore, noise or grindcore. Burzum has a lot of hardcore influence as well, yet it is not as overwhelming. I also enjoyed Dissection, but it's melodic black metal which is also very different from normal black metal.
Am I the only one who's noticed that Burzum is very different from other black metal bands? I mean listen to Lost Wisdom, it sounds nothing like normal black metal. Could you please recommend me some other bands in this style?

I remember the German group Nyktalgia sounding a lot like Burzum...

Maybe try Dimmu Borgir's "For All Tid" album?

Lol, he literally ripped-off Burzum. Heart of Darknesss sounds exactly the same as Det Som Engang Var. Well, he does sound like Burzum, so thank you. :)

Wigrid's demos and debut album are as close to Burzum you'll get without actually listening to Burzum IMO. The entire is brilliant Burzum worship from beginning to end.

I always found Bilskirnir to be really close to the early Burzum sound.

Funeral Rites from Japan

The demos were the best, as the full-length is a bit lacking in sound, but should be worth for you musicwise.

I do like these kind of vocals more than the Burzum ones, which I can't stand at all.

Sterbend is Hvis Lyset Tar Oss worship imo. Someone else said Nyktalgia which I agree with. Definitely dive into DSBM, Burzum had a lot of influence on that whole subgenre.

Hermodr is the best of the Burzumic type of black metal in my opinion. Close enough to be clearly Burzum influenced but far enough away to be it's own thing and highly inspired.

Early Drudkh is a must for any Burzum fan. The riffs and the sound is like a mix of Hvis lyset tar oss and Filosofem, with the vocals being the most different. The 2nd album, Autumn Aurora, is highly recommended.

I would strongly recommend Walknut - Graveforests and Their Shadows.

Burzum, Aske, Det Som Engang Var - Funeral Procession, Akitsa
Filosofem - Abyssic Hate
Daudi Baldrs - Soundtrack to the video game Realms of Arkania: Star Trail, may be hard to find

try buio - seinswende for some recent, really shameless burzum worship. or try nidhoggr - raven over the road of kings for some good stuff from back in the days.

Sounds like you might want to check out more atmospheric BM. Check out early Drudkh indeed, also, Likferd. Early Gris is kinda Burzum-worship as well but with more DSBM influences. If you're not a fan of the hardcore-like sound of some black metal bands I'd also suggest to check out the Polish BM scene in general, lots of mid-pace black metal with good melodic-shaped atmosphere (for example Mgla, Plaga, Furia). Same goes for the Russian scene pretty much (e.g. Skogyr, Forgot, Temnozor)
