Best Gorgoroth Songs

Gorgoroth is a Black Metal band hailing from Bergen, Norway founded in 1992 by Infernus, one of the most talented black metal guitarists. They are one of the forrunners of the Norwegian Black Metal scene to make the genre popular in the underground.
As a Satanic (as well as Anti-Christ) band they have promoted satanism and anti-christianity through their music and their appearance... The top ten songs by them are listed below.

The Top Ten

1 Open the Gates

Nothing compares to the darkness in this song. The real GORGOROTH!

Got to love the production!
Pest kills and the riffs are awesome. - Nord666

Very Beautiful Song
I Love This One MAAN

First time hearing this and becomes #1 Black Metal, Metal, Song I've heard
The riffs are breathtaking, pest sounds amazing and beautifuly pure evil, the chanting takes away your soul with an atmosphere blacker than death, this is the definition of Black Metal hands down!

2 Incipit Satan

This is something that will change your life... Will force you think in a different way rather than the way you used to do... - BrutalTruth

It is a revolutionary song for Gorgoroth, introducing the Mighty gaahl. It truly was black metal.

I can't find this song, What album is this song on anyone?

The album is called "Incipit Satan" as well. Seems like it used to be on Spotify but not anymore. The best black metal song by far (Not including DSBM.).

3 Sign of an Open Eye

Awesome song. Has a haunting tune which sends chills down my spine. Definitely their best. VOTE UP

Them lyrics.
This and Prosperity And Beauty. Epic!

Listen to this and you feel as if you are in heaven - Ananya

He who sits in the dark
is the bringer of light!
call him
the black flame
call him
the bringer of light! - Ananya

5 Unchain My Heart

Like this for Infernus' awesome guitar riffs. - Nord666

6 Satan-Promethues

Once again, another Viking Black Metal sound. Very Epic, especially with the intro, and love the clean vocals here as well. - Nord666

First black metal song that I heard and I still consider black metal a pure beauty, no matter what anyone says.

Amazing black metal with haunting rhythm!
This is just an awesome song by Gorgoroth.

Easily my favourite, but I haven’t heard them all, because I can’t get them anywhere.

7 Profetens Åpenbaring

The awesome clean vocals of pest at the beginning and then transition into distortion never fails to give me shivers and the awesome guitar riffs just own pure and simple - Nord666

Love the melody of the clean vocals juxtaposed against the heavy but catchy riff.

It is just pleasure.

8 Crushing the Scepter

First Gorgoroth song I ever heard. Love the slow part and the ending riff. And I like the live versions with Pest even better than the actual version. - Nord666

9 Rebirth

I love the whole doomish black metal vibe, and of course it's epicness with the buildup and everything. - Nord666

Strong song from this Album, the Rebirth after Gaahl and King left the band
