The I.N.R.I. album is some of the best first wave black metal music. listen to it and just try to prove me wrong. should be in the top twenty of any black metal list.

52 Drudkh

Drudkh have shown that great black metal doesn't have to come from Norway. drudkh always delivers great albums my favorites being "Blood In Our Wells" and "Autumn Aurora"

Drudkh brings great albums my favorite being "blood in our wells"

Drudkh is the best black metal ambient/folk oriented style- band of the XXI century. They are unique, folkish melodic and atmospheric. Blood in Our Wells is their best relase to date

53 Skyforger

Best Band from Latvia! - Mikbiter15

56 Tvangeste

They aren't that "great" as described, but I guess it's a matter of opinion.

One of the most underrated bands! Cannot wait to get their third album!

Epic Black Metal Band! Very underrated as they aren't legends or anything but they deserve just as much love. Just listen to 'Birth of the Hero' and 'Storm' - PsychoSandman33
