Best Albums to Get You Into Black Metalryanrimmel I made the same list for death metal, but I feel black metal is much harder to get into.
You want to check out black metal, but you don't know where to start? Here's some albums to get you started.
The Top Ten
This was the third black metal album I listened to - Brobusky
It sure as hell got me into this genre
Whole album was so perfect, the word can't be as perfect as this, Holocaust..A fine day to die..pace til death, all of them were so mind blowing. - AnanyaV 1 Comment
This is what got me into the Norwegian stuff. Satyr has a good voice, and it has good riffs, and good sound quality. Also, this isn't "satanic" either. Its actually medieval themed black metal. - ryanrimmel
The driving rhythms of his vocal patterns were so unique and catchy...all of it - Ananya
This album was very cool, I never expected them to be this good - Ananya
You like rocknroll? You like riffs? You'll like this album. Imagine black metal vox with amazing riffs. It feels like taking a black metal band and fusing them with Led Zeppelin. - ryanrimmel
The first black metal album I ever listened to. Just sat down and decided, "hey, this looks pretty cool, plus I've heard a lot of good stuff about it." AMAZING ALBUM! 10/10 - Brobusky
This album may not be the 1st that I've listened too but it gotten me into Black Metal. - SirSkeletorThe3rdV 1 Comment
Symphonic Black Metal! Elititsts love to hate them, but they truly have good music. There's a reason why so many non-black metal fans enjoy Dimmu Borgir - ryanrimmel
Immortal is the first black metal band that I actually liked. This and Bathory's blood fire death is my favorites.
I'm sad that people are forgetting this important album of Black metal world - Ananya
This album got me into black metal. After this I listened to Mayhem and now I love Mayhem - SirSkeletorThe3rd
