The second region(s) here is the UK/Irish scene which has a significant tie with black metal like with all genres really in heavy metal.
Here, black metal was not named in this country yet it was personified by Venom and the greatest of the original scene in my opinion.
This scene I have A LOT of artists and I cut out all the demo bands I had and ones that made no real difference to the scene. So this list represents at least one full album and/or are still active and I like enough to list.
