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 forerunners 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

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.

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!

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...

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.).

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

These lyrics... Base of Satanism

Carving a Giant

This is a giant one!

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

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

Unchain My Heart

Like this for Infernus' awesome guitar riffs.


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

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.

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.


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

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

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

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

It is just pleasure.

Possessed (By Satan)

One of the best tracks of antichrist, which is my favorite gorgoroth album.

Fantastic song! Very underrated though

The Contenders


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

Procreating Satan

"Are you ready? The incarnating blasphemy! Rise horns of hell! Procreating satan! "
Very very cool, love this song!


Amazingly haunting song. Ambient near the start to set the tone, crushing riff, with haunting sung vocals near the end before finishing in obscurity.

From the first album

Oh... That riff make me cry

From their second album

Teeth Grinding
The Devil is Calling

The lyrics are like a satanic prayer!

Wound Upon Wound

Very very cool! Dark and powerful! Great song!

Of Ice and Movement

In my opinion maybe their best song...

Prosperity and Beauty

This song is their absolute best. I like Gorgoroth with Pest but Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam is a masterpeice and Gaahl voice in it is amazing.

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!

My favorite black metal song of all time

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


Probably my favorite gorogoroth song of all time (and from their best album). Amazing riff, melody, and the alternating sung/growled vocals near the end are fantastic.

I love the ending of this song! So awesome it brings chills up to my spine

This is what the whole black metal should be

Shame this is so low and Carving a Giant isbso high

Revelation of Doom

Bruh, this song is beautiful. I bet most people haven't even heard of it.

Katharinas Bortgang

Best black-metal track EVER written! The guitar-section at the end of this track warns of great danger and evil..

The Pagan Megalith
Funeral Procession

Killer riffs, great vocals near the start of the album.

Ødeleggelse og Undergang

Definitely the scariest vocals

Forces of Satan Storms

Awesome guitar and the song has some magic in it, composition an stereo is great

Absolute brutality. The footage of Frost drumming this song live is something to behold (beyond words).

A World to Win

Most underrated song of them for sure.

Life Eternal
Heavens Fall
Radix Malorum

From their last album, Infernus shows us he still is one of the best (if not the best) black metal guitarist

God Seed (Twilight of the Idols)
New Breed
The Rite of Infernal Invocation
Rite of Infernal Invocation
Exit Through Carved Stones

Dark and brooding. One of their best.
