Averse Sefira is one of the top black metal bands in the U.S. No question. They play a particularly brutal style of black metal with unmatched intensity. This is not cold, Norwegian black metal, this is the kind of filthy, stinking metal that could only come from a bunch of guys in Texas. I have covered Texas's black metal scene in depth in the past and Averse Sefira is the most notable example from that scene. This is harsh black metal that proves that the U.S. can produce some excellent bands in the style.
