The Top Ten

1 Where Dead Angels Lie Where Dead Angels Lie Cover Art

I used to dislike black metal until I heard this song. It's dark, melodic and overall a beautiful song.

Anyone who thinks that Black Metal is just guys in corpse paint screeching about how much they love Satan need to listen to this song ASAP.

Oh Lord! This is so unrelenting and evil. I'm starting to fall in love with extreme metal. Jon's vocals is filled with pure emotion of hatred.

I usually listen to this song merging "At the Fathomless Depths" - the sinister intro with it. It sounds amazing as the build up really sets the tone for the devastating storm that follows engulfing the listener and taking them to a round of an unholy journey to hell. The entire album indeed was very inspirational for the plethora of emerging extreme metal bands back in the 90s. The band did an exceptional job inventing their own unique sound and released two golden masterpieces on the trot, that has aged very well. I'm not all dissapointed that they called it quits at such an early phase of their career, instead it gives such an immense value to their records in my opinion.

So haunting and fast paced. This band was a God-Gift.

Brilliant musically not to mention the voices at the beginning say a line backwards which was later used in where dead angels lie, this song is pure genius made by the mastermind Jon Nodveidt! Hail Chaos! Reign in chaos Jon!
