41 The Mantle - Agalloch
42 Blood In Our Wells - Drudkh
43 Dusk... And Her Embrace - Cradle of Filth

If we are going to call COF black metal.. Then this album is awesome! I think if we are going to talk about the true black metal albums I think "Under The Sign Of The Black Mark" and "Burzum" and "In The Nightside Eclipse" are my top 3. - nooreldeen

44 Wolfheart - Moonspell

One of the most beautiful albums of all time...another black metal beauty - Ananya

45 Panzerfaust - Darkthrone
46 New Bermuda - Deafheaven

LOVVVEEE IT. It gets a lotta negatives because of the post-rock,shoegaze fusion thing but that was actually total genius out for me.The drum work is mindblowing for hella sure

47 Heaven In Flames - Judas Iscariot
48 Arntor - Windir
49 Enthrone Darkness Triumphant - Dimmu Borgir
50 Ashes Against the Grain - Agalloch
51 Eld - Enslaved
52 Unchain the Wolves - Destroyer 666

Underrated album, better that many because they don't just rip off Bathory while capturing that early Black Metal sound.

53 Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame - Summoning

Epic and atmospheric! Just awesome!

54 Under the Sign of Hell - Gorgoroth

Everything about this album is killer

55 Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia - Dimmu Borgir

This was an incredible album. Symphonic black metal with all the speed and aggression you can handle!

56 Angelus Exuro Pro Eternus - Dark Funeral
57 Death Cult Armageddon - Dimmu Borgir
58 Thousand Swords - Graveland
59 Axioma Ethica Odini - Enslaved
60 The Laws of Scourge - Sarcofago
