Anyone have some surprising finds?

I heard a bit about this album on 4chan and was really wary of it for obvious reasons, but I threw it on the other evening and wound up listening to the whole thing.

I've found that I'm really a sucker for warm/solar black metal like this and Bolzer, both in musical style and lyrical content. It's major ironpill stuff, really affirmative and empowering.

Axis of light, life at its height
Energy spirals strong and pure
Draw the May knife afore bold noon
And the unconquerable tune resound throughout
Without, within, I capture everything
And radiate as the golden crown
The lemniscate rune, destroy all doubt
For I am the almighty Sun-Column

Fertile is the mind tilled with steel.

Not an album but a movie. I thought Pacific rim was going to suck after viewing the trailer. Ended up seeing it 5 times in theaters. Surprised hit doubt others would enjoy it as much as I did.

Rammstein. I thought they would suck, but they're actually decent. Not good, but the simple tunes and beats can stick in your head for the duration of a song, which is more than i can say anymore.

I've poked into Fanisk's later album and the lyrics in that one are even better, though I think I prefer the crispy, plasticky musical style of Noontide to Insularum's more progressive mixing/mastering.

From Insularum:

Where now the world
That glittered once golden --
That through lilt vision,
Perfume and tincture,
Summarily slew,
With potence and ardour,
Such shades verdure
In blight rumination?!
There now, a dream--
Or memoir of a specter,
Stripped of its aura
Plumed drusile serene.
Begowned hues ashen,
Now driftsick, careened,
Remotest dominion,
Thus e’er conceived.

What source, unrest,
Wept ambit sunder,
And dreamer drown
In chalice madden?
Wherefrom thy quest
Which soul sequestereth,
Yet crown to roam
What Sun doth summon
Aye, knowingly so,
He, who with last exhalation
Should answer?
What son, enraptured,
All quarter forego,
Consigneth his essence
To oceans eternal?

THat's prettty hard. I mostly don't even bother with st uff I think is going to suck so it's more often I get let down by one of the few things I endup getting excited about.
