Yes, into Owls Blood. Great name too.
I have the Ostots 7" on Seedstock and really like it, awesome they are Basque, didnt know that. I'll bring it with me this weekend.
Tell me more about other Basque BM bands Remi!
Sam, I don't know many Basque BM bands at all. Basque people are more into heavy metal and thrash, I think.
I know of one band on the French side: http://www.myspace.com/cylenchar but it's not great.
On the Spanish side, I know about Ostots, Numen: http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Numen/3066, Nakkiga: http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Nakkiga/13491 and Mortinatum: http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Mortinatum/11429 . I like the few things I heard by Mortinatum. Numen sound too cheesy to me most of the time, and I haven't listened to Nakkiga. Sorry I can't help more, I guess there's no proper Basque scene in spite of what Seedstock were saying on their website when they sold the Ostots 7" but I suppose they need to find things to say so they can sell their records...

Ostots is actually from the Spanish Basque Country, not Portugal.
heh thought Basque Country was Portugal! Shows how unworldly i am.
Still i think there seems to be a lot of split-sharing between Portuguese and Basque Country bands so that was the root of my assumption.
I would pretty much echo the last 2 posts for essential black metal albums.
Perhaps add Immortal 'Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism' to the list as well.
Dude, saying that the Basque country is in Portugal is like telling a Scot he's Welsh. When foreign bands play in the Spanish Basque country and say "thank you Spain for welcoming us" or something like that, they get boo'ed. Be careful with that
And I don't know about Immortal's album. While it's a classic, it didn't create anything special compared to the other albums I mentioned.
Also, I got my laptop's line-in input fixed today so I ripped all three Skuggeheim 7"es for everyone tonight. If you think it sounds weird at times, it's because the dude behind the band recorded it that way. My set-up is great, works fine and all.
More power to me.
