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.

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.
