Best Black Metal Songs

The Top Ten

Freezing Moon - Mayhem Freezing Moon - Mayhem Cover Art

classic band, classic black metal, one of the black metal anthems

This is the song that defines black metal for me, Great solos and riffs. The vocal performance is even better.

This song makes me feel like I'm in the middle of some cold forest in Norway.

The ambiance of Euronymous, furious drums by Hellhammer, vision of Dead (sung by Atilla) and quaking bass by Varg make this song and exceptional piece of art... Black metal at it's finest!

I Am the Black Wizard - Emperor

The vibe the band created here was pure magic... Especially for a debut album!

It is "I Am the Black Wizards" not "I Am the Black Wizard"...

The talent put into the composition of this is amazing, Ihsahn is brilliant at his goals, the others play their instruments well, the atmosphere is brilliant. And on a side note, Necrolord is the best cover artist I've seen and this album was one of his greater works.

Freezing moon is the first black metal song one will listen to, but I am the black wizards is the best one they will listen to

Dunkelheit - Burzum Dunkelheit - Burzum Cover Art

I think this songs must be on first position, because Burzum is best black metal band I ever listened. It's my opinion.

I love this song, It has a great riff and a deep atmospheric vibe. It projects the realist side of black metal rather than satanic cliches and myth. I usually like melodic metal and it has some melody to it, I usually prefer un-blackened metal.. But this is true art!

This is how black metal can be defined. Pure nordic spirit with a raw melody and raw screams of Varg make a general kvlt atmosphere of the black metal of 90's. Hail.

Varg Vikernes; the very definition of Black Metal!

A Fine Day to Die - Bathory A Fine Day to Die - Bathory Cover Art

The reason why Quorthon really was a huge mastermind in Black Metal and one of the founding fathers!

You have to be kidding me! If this song is 26 then numbers 1-25 shouldn't exist. All black metal bands look up to Bathory, and owe a debt to them.

This is the best song on the list and it's all the way down here?!

GOAT Black Metal song.

The Sun No Longer Rises - Immortal The Sun No Longer Rises - Immortal Cover Art

Immortal, the best Black Metal band.

This is the alpha and omega of REAL black metal. If your thing is pure and uncompromising black metal, look no further.

It's good but one by one and beyond the north waves are much better and should be in the top 5.

Pure holocaust should be in the top 3

Progenies of the Great Apocalypse - Dimmu Borgir Progenies of the Great Apocalypse - Dimmu Borgir Cover Art

Its shocking that this song is not in top 5. Dimmu is best black metal band and this is their best song.
This should be in top 5

Very great song. A perfect blend of melody and a fast beat blast drums by Hellhammer and a very heavy guitar distortotion. Hands down to this song. Deserves to be in top.

I'm so shock about this. Actually, this song deserves number one next is freezing moon. Wth? Im a die hard dimmu borgir fan. This list should be reviewed.

I never thought I'd get into black metal until I started listening to Immortal. Then, a friend told me that this song had vocals by Abbath in it, so I gave it a shot and I was instantly blown away. This is a symphonic black metal masterpiece. Abbath does great vocals on it, the background symphonies make you feel like your in the middle of the apocalypse, and Vortex's vocal part is powerful, mesmerizing, and just plain beautiful. This is truly a powerful ball metal masterpiece just to say the least.

Forever Winter - Antim Grahan

This guys are just awful compared to Dark Funeral or Gorgoroth... Really amateurish and the vocals are overrated... Bull

We are proud to say we dare to compete with worlds metal band. Just hands up to antim grahan

I have no words to appreciate this song because it is the best black metal songs ever in the music history. The sounds of keyboard at first is the best part of this song. (bikash)

Man I was a huge fan of this song but never knew it was so great in black metal category, feeling great

Mother North - Satyricon Mother North - Satyricon Cover Art

Song of longing, love and vengeance of the North - Mother of Black Metal

First black metal song I had ever listened to! I stumbled across the music video on YouTube and I was so fascinated by the video and the music! Great song, great band!

Very nice song, frost play like frost storm.

Came here just to make sure this song gets to number 1. Classic

Where Dead Angels Lie - Dissection Where Dead Angels Lie - Dissection Cover Art

Very melodic song, but dark too at the same time. Just listened it and it’s good. The riffs, solo, drumming is so good. That scream though. Not a fan of Black Metal, but this is an exception.

I love how this song is so melodic and creepy at the same time, that gives it a really spooky atmosphere. This song is almost as spooky as the Ghostbusters movies.

The amount of skill and vision Jon Nödtveid possessed is unmatchable for it's time... Outstanding song on one of the best Black Metal records ever...

What the hell this masterpiece is doing on 79th?

Blashyrkh (Mighty Ravendark) - Immortal Blashyrkh (Mighty Ravendark) - Immortal Cover Art

Demons stride at the gates of Blashyrkh!

Might be the scariest metal song ever recorded

Great song! Hands down!

Immortal. enough said

The Contenders

Transilvanian Hunger - Darkthrone Transilvanian Hunger - Darkthrone Cover Art

The perfect example of a music genre called "Black Metal". Darkthrone at it's best!

This song is Black Metal. If you're looking for a better example. You won't find it. I can assure you of that.

What is this doing down here? Why no darkthrone songs up there in top 3? Try the hordes of nebula, quintessence, transilvanian hunger, in the shadows of the horn, etc and just feel amazed

THIS is the purest expression of black metal. #24? Kill me.

Blood Fire Death - Bathory Blood Fire Death - Bathory Cover Art

This is called Viking Metal!

Well to be honest the most influental bathory songs for black metal were sacrifice and enter the eternal fire...

The Call of the Wintermoon - Immortal The Call of the Wintermoon - Immortal Cover Art
Black Metal - Venom

The song that started it all

First black metal band, doesn't make it the best, but this songs deserves more respect

It's more rock and roll than black metal.

The grandfather of black metal - you should pay respects

Lost Wisdom - Burzum Lost Wisdom - Burzum Cover Art

This song just has the best black metal riff ever. Antim Graham is the worst metal band I've ever listen too. And Burzum has Varg Vikernes as boss, who is an incredible figure of black metal history.
Lost Wisdom forever.

Antim Graham? Is nothing compared with this band, burzum is the best black metal band ever! This song is the anthem of black metal

One of those songs, that force me to dance like wild pagan spirit.

Burzum is for me in the top 3. varg makes only masterpieces

Det Som En Gang Var - Burzum Det Som En Gang Var - Burzum Cover Art

I like it a bit more than Dunkelheit. I think Jesus' Tod is a better choice from that album anyway.

The darkest song ever

Best black metal song, absolutely magical

This is what I call music - tr00 music.

All Shall Fall - Immortal All Shall Fall - Immortal Cover Art

I think who are metal heads which do not like All Shall Fall are not the fan of the BLACK METAL. This is amazing, everyone should vote it to make it NO. 1 Black metal song.

Stronger than the Gods we fought, Triumphant for the Dark Prophecies

Nice black metal song

Number 1 for me in black metal

Gateways - Dimmu Borgir Gateways - Dimmu Borgir Cover Art

This is one of the best dimmu songs. The female is PERFEKT it’s eerie and strange

Terrible song.that female part was horrid..


Call from the Grave - Bathory Call from the Grave - Bathory Cover Art

Seriously? 22? This song defines the dark and cold atmosphere black metal should always have.

Hear my call... From.. The grave

Deathcrush - Mayhem Deathcrush - Mayhem Cover Art

Not many things are more black metal than 3 minutes of Maniac doing vocals

Dead doing 4 minutes is.

Should go upper.

Kyy - Azaghal


Enter the Eternal Fire - Bathory Enter the Eternal Fire - Bathory Cover Art

Epic! Quorthon is the metal mastermind! Under The Sign of the Black Mark is a truly metal Masterpiece! Among with Woman of Dark Desires and Equimanthorn are the best of the whole album!

Fools don't put Blood Fire Death tracks in this list.

How is this 21? This is anthem of black metal

L Drago is the more powerful Beyblade than earth eagle. Earth eagle is so weak. I wish I could have L drago. L drago is attack type. I can't believe L Dargo is the forbidden bey.

Jesus' Tod - Burzum Jesus' Tod - Burzum Cover Art

not satanic, but very poetic song of Jesus's death

Mayhem? Really #1? Posers

Essentially everything that BM should be, harsh, organic fast as a shark, with a hint of anti-Christianity and a touch of nature.

Das ganze album ist eines der besten jemals

The Departure - Abigail Williams The Departure - Abigail Williams Cover Art
Black Spell of Destruction - Burzum

Easily the best black metal song ever
