41 Vikingligr Veldi - Enslaved
42 StormblÄst - Dimmu Borgir
43 Arntor - Windir
44 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

45 Wolfheart - Moonspell

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

46 Incipit Satan - Gorgoroth
47 Evangelion - Behemoth
48 Blood In Our Wells - Drudkh
49 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

50 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.

51 Enthrone Darkness Triumphant - Dimmu Borgir
52 Heaven In Flames - Judas Iscariot
53 Ashes Against the Grain - Agalloch
54 Thousand Swords - Graveland
55 Eld - Enslaved
56 Carpathian Wolves - Graveland
57 Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame - Summoning

Epic and atmospheric! Just awesome!

58 Under the Sign of Hell - Gorgoroth

Everything about this album is killer

59 Chimera - Mayhem

The drumming and bass guitaring in this is out of this world, nothing Iv heard compares to this, most underrated black metal album on the planet. It is MAYHEM literally.

60 Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia - Dimmu Borgir

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