So I saw Botanist VI: Flora show up on my facebook-feed last week. Listened to it and realized that it was amazing. I've tried to get into Botanist once or twice before, but never really liked it. The gimmick was cool, but I was never really interested in the music itself.

VI, however, is legit. Very unique sounding, really catchy. That is, if you accept this kind of pseudo/post-black metal.

Had high hopes for this one and they delivered.

Of the first five, which would you think is the best to check out if I dig VI?

Tried it, still couldn't get in to it. When I first heard the term "hammered dulcimer black metal" I just about creamed at the level of intrigue, but then when I listened to them I thought their actual sound was poor. I watched a few videos of live performances and they sounded worse. I may be going to see Worm Ouroboros in a couple weeks, and I think Botanist is headlininh that (unfortunately Worm is only opening).

I listened to a bit. A member from my previous band told me about them and showed me a song or two that was interesting. This is maybe something I'd get into more with repeated listens, butttt as it is it's still a bit odd.

I get how the sound could take getting used to, but it was love at first listen for me. I think it's my affinity for fuzzy blackgaze that make it easy to like for me. In terms of sound, I think the one thing that it reminds me the most of is the first Sleeping Peonies EP.
