Amanda Kauffman Possibly the best overall black metal album ever recorded, from a strictly quality and legacy standpoint. Somewhat pared back in comparison to its predecessor, but the compositions are tighter and smarter and the musicianship is also a step up. Favorite track: Thus Spake the Nightspirit.

Archmage Orladin An all time classic. This album showed the full potential of black metal as a genre at a time when many bands were still aping the "Deathcrush" style of black metal. Emperor were pioneers and this album was a machete into and a outpost in new sonic landscapes for the genre. This album is to black metal what "Darkside of the Moon" is to prog rock. Favorite track: With Strength I Burn.
