1. Strength and Anger - Ildjarn
Strength and Anger is the epitome of everything that is considered as Black Metal. This is what Black Metal will sound like when it has been stripped to it's core. The songs are lo-fi minimalism with a touch of punk beats and simple riff patterns are being repeated over and over again. This is a MUST have for everyone who seeks for the most true Black Metal ever recorded. No bullshit.

2. Hvis Lyset Tar Oss - Burzum
Everything has been said about this one. A true masterpiece.

3. As the Wolves Gather - Forgotten Woods
Forgotten Woods is a truly overlooked band. Their first full-length was quite unremembered, since it was released in 1994 along with hailed masterpieces such as "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss" , "Transilvanian Hunger" and "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas". Blood chilling ancient music with great melodies and haunting vocals. A must !

4. Blaze in the Northern Sky (Dig) - Darkthrone
Darkthrone's second album is not really Black Metal, but it's not Death Metal either. A lethal and amazing mixture of both.

5. Folkloric Necro Metal - Sort Vokter
Hypnotic Black Metal masterpiece, fully created under the influence of THC. Ildjarn fanatics should appreciate these strange and bass-dominated rumbling sounds. Total atmosphere.

6. Blood Must Be Shed - Zyklon-B
Clocking at about 10-minutes, this EP delivers 3 hateful tracks of well-produced misanthropy. Everything is perfect, a true mental orgasm ! Hateful vocals, crushing riffs... Everything comes down on the last song "Warfare", which could easily be the most hateful thing ever recorded.

7. End of Life - Strid
For a band that only released a couple of tracks, Strid really was influential, especially to the coming of the whole "suicidal" Black Metal genre. End of Life paints a portrait of a lost spirit who has given up everything. The pain just grows riff after riff.

8. De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas - Mayhem_III
You saw it coming sooner or later.

9. In the Streams of Inferno - Mysticum
An endless flow of guitars mixed with empty mechanical sound of a drum machine. Aggressive and pioneering album.

People who added this item 16  Average listal rating (13 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
10. Madrigal of the Night (Nattens Madrigal) - Ulver
Raw tremolo guitars mixed with bitter touch of melancholy. Great stuff.

Good album. A bit too avantgarde for my taste,though.
