Best Norwegian Black Metal BandsNord666
The Top Ten
Emperor had created a unique style in Extreme Metal. From a raw, atmospheric and symphonic Black Metal to a Progressive and complex Metal. One most important Metal band ever...
Emperor Is King! They have truly the most complex music of All in black metal history. Also the are most pure in the way their black metal presents itself.
No way number 1! I can think of heaps that would go above them.
I'm surprised to see these guys at number 1 they are my favorite black meral band of all time - countnightdark13V 4 Comments
Most important band in this list. If there was no Mayhem there would be no Black Metal. They set the landmark for the Black Metal genre and its culture. - Nord666
Before blindly voting for Mayhem, ask yourself this: Do you even listen to anything other than De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas? - farckashkun
Mayhem has continued to produce great music to this day...esoteric warfare was a great album as were all of it's predecessors
Best black metal band ever - LucretiaV 2 Comments
Awesome style... Kick-ass drums with awesome guitars and great vocal range and with adventerous lyrics about the adventures of "Blashyrkh" actually they are lyrically better than other black metal bands in my mind - nooreldeen
Here are the Sons of Northern Darkness! The True Kings of Norway! Abbath, Demonaz, Grim and Horgh... - Nord666
I can see them right now running around on the icefields here in blashyrkh if I take a look outside the Window ov my castleV 1 Comment
I think Burzum is greatest black metal band, all of his albums are great, music and lyrics so beautiful. I think, Burzum must be on first position.
I don't like Varg Vikernes personally, but you can't hate his music. He's a genius Black Metal musician. - Nord666
Best Norwegian Black Metal Band ever and endless.

The best, look no further than the unholy trinity!
One of the pioneers of black metal
Darkthrone released the very first "True Black Metal" full length A Blaze In The Northern Sky. As far as my knowledge goes, The mayhem demos and Deathcrush were out there but this was the first LP that hit the black metal scene. Every album after this is an amazing piece of Norwegian black metal art. you must own the unholy trinity!V 2 Comments
Here only because of their early stuffs (Nemesis Divina etc. ). I hate their new style, now, they sound more like industrial metal. - Nord666V 1 Comment
Infernus (the best norwegian black metal guitarist), Gaahl (one of the best black metal vocalists), Grim (the 2nd best black metal drummer) and many more who played for gorgoroth, Is there any doubt about their awesomeness? - Nord666
Between Mayhem and Gorgoroth, Gorgoroth is the best at what they do, of course not bashing Mayhem in any way
They should be first, I just love them, love infernus, the darkest of the blacks, the gods of the black art - Ananya
For consistency only; Gorgoroth was, is and will always be Black Metal!V 9 Comments
Awesome band...great musicians...groundbreaking early albums up to In Sorte Diablo...last one sucked...waiting for ages for new stuff. Should be at number One...but other bands in list are very good Black/ Death Metal rules...
Old dimmu borgir is best. New one is okay but not that good
Dimmu Burgers best Burgers
TOP 7 BAND OF THIS LIST AWESOME... OTHERS ARE NOTHINGV 5 Comments
Progressive Black/Viking Metal, I love how they mix Progressive Metal with Viking/Black Metal. - GREYBOYY
A RAW black metal band! The vocalist is completely insane! (I saw them live) - Nord666
Awesome thrash sound, evil vocals, and are almost perfect live
I'm the engine in CF!
I really like 1349. But I have noticed that a lot of their material is recycled - ryanrimmel
Actually Windir and Emperor should both be on number oneV 1 Comment
The new album is very nice.
By far the top Black Metal act as of right now. His style is definitely orthodox non-symphonic, but is one of the most diverse and refreshing act's out there.
Despite only releasing two proper black metal albums before moving onto electronic music Ulver is the greatest black metal band of all time. The album Bergtatt blends black metal with folk music effortlessly without one element overshadowing the other, and as a result it is the best black metal album ever recorded. - HvisLysetTarOss
Made only 2 albums, they have made their place among the best bands - Ananya
They released the best Black Metal albums of all time, a brilliant, yet unappreciated BM album, and a debut EP that knocks the socks off most other bands... Not to mention their mastering of basically every genre there is. And what have Mayhem done? Released one decent album that's extremely hyped because of the bands history, a good EP and a couple of mediocre albums.
