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

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.).

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?

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

These lyrics... Base of Satanism

4 Carving a Giant

This song got me into Black Metal as well, pure power

This is a giant one!

This song got me into black metal. Such a killer track m/

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.

Pest is a killer singer, this song is so great with its clean epic chorus...

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

7 Profetens Åpenbaring

It is just pleasure.

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.

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 Teeth Grinding
10 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

The Newcomers

? Exit Through Carved Stones

Dark and brooding. One of their best.

The Contenders

11 Possessed (By Satan)

Fantastic song! Very underrated though

12 Ritual

I Truly love that vocal that Hat did in the introduction. Made Him sounds like an alien or something - Nord666

Very very cool, love this song!

14 Sorg

Oh... That riff make me cry

15 The Devil is Calling

The lyrics are like a satanic prayer!

16 Maaneskyggens Slave

Infernally melodic riffs from the middle of the song until the beginning. Heavy and dark atmosphere. One of the best black metal songs of all time.

One of the most epic black metal melodies ever written.

The perfect black-metallic melodies

17 Forces of Satan Storms
18 Wound Upon Wound

Very very cool! Dark and powerful! Great song!

19 Of Ice and Movement

In my opinion maybe their best song...

20 Prosperity and Beauty

This is my favorite song from them.

Come on. How come this is not on the list? Epic guitars. Epic drums. Epic lyrics. Epic vocals. It deserves to be in the top three.

Yes, absolutely it has to be part of the top ten!

Kick ass
