94 Abyssos

We Hail Thy Entrance is the best blast metal song of all time. Give these guys a listen they're absolutely amazing.

Awesome band! Very dark and melodic, listen to "We Hail Thy Entrance",
"Together we Summon the Dark" "Fhinstinian Nightbreed", and "I've Watched the Moon Grow Old"!

95 Nachtblut
96 Belphegor Belphegor Belphegor is a blackened death metal band from Salzburg, Austria. They originally formed in 1991 under the name Betrayer before changing their name in 1993. They are named after the demon Belphegor.

Not only are they death metal, they're an awful talentless group. I'd rather listen to Black Veil Brides all day than this trash.

One of the very best black pagan metal band

98 Peste Noire
99 Zimorog

Great dude, his music is improving and he definitely loves and fights for black metal. I find that he knows even more than he speaks about (he has hard time expresing himself) so I'm looking foward to his future material.

100 Ragnarok

Lesser known, very 'true' 2nd wave Norwegian band. Great Black metal. Should be more well known but lacked the controversy of other bands. 'blackdoor miracle' is a classic.
