102 Malevolentia

105 Permafrost
106 Striborg

I have met Striborg, interesting guy. Very underrated and definitely a better Composer than Varg Vikernes. His bleak, distorted, twisted Black Metal is just sex.


107 Behexen Behexen
108 Anaal Nathrakh

85? What? At least in the top ten list..

Good band at wrong category.

Top 30 at least

109 Myrd

Awesome danish black metal band!

110 Sacramentum

The blood shall be spilled

111 Septicflesh Septicflesh

I really like their new ideas in music. Their song writting is always complex with many chords, and they are using melodic guitar links. I miss though, the female vocals they used in "The Ophidian Wheel".

Not exactly 'black metal' sth like blackened death but still pioneers of this black art

112 Tormentor

Why did I have to add tormentor to this list? Shame on you internet metalheads!

113 Mütiilation

Great raw black metal. Really under appreciated
