1. Behemoth - Sventevith (Storming Near The Baltic)
This album defines black metal for me, although it isn't considered as one of the true classics. What bother me most with most black metal albums is that all of the songs often sounds too similar. On this album you find more variation, and it has some element from most of the black metal sub-genre. It is quite brutal, but also quite melodic, it has some semi-symphonic elements, an accoustic interlude, a dark atmosphere, and also some almost ambient stuff.
2. Behemoth - Grom
3. Lutomysl - Catharsis
4. Furia (POL) - Martwa Polska Jesień
5. Behemoth - Pandemonic Incantations

I have expanded the list to a top 40. As you can see I mostly love black metal from Poland and Ukraine. I love scandinavian death metal, but I don't think our black metal bands come close to our death metal.

Your selection is not wide enough, looked like a fanboy's list.
Very bad actually.

As a BM fan, it scares me a bit how little I've heard from your list (a little less than 1/4th).

I'm well aware I have a very unusual taste in black metal (as well as in death and thrash metal).

I actually like most of these. Also nice to see that Algor is recognized outside Slovakia. Make sure you check their new album, Hierofania.

I can tell you that you are responsible for that, by starting the Slovak black metal thread. I also added Alatyr after that. I will check out Hierofania as well.
