The Five Points of the Pentagram, Point 1: Black Metal

Last Updated August 30 2014

A collection of all of my personal favorite black, black/thrash, black/death and black/doom metal. One album per band and in no particular order other than alphabetical. List will be updated semi-regularly so remember to stop by every so often!

The ★ signifies an album that is borderline perfect. Can you find them all?

1. 1349 - Beyond The Apocalypse
2. Abigor - Fractal Possession
3. Abgott - Artefact Of Madness
4. Aborym - Kali Yuga Bizarre
5. Absu - Tara

KB's Favorite Albums Of All Time (Only Metal)

Here is my provisional favorite-metal-albums-of-all-time-list! Enjoy!
The first 10 albums are in pretty accurate order. However, after that, it becomes harder and harder to separate the albums clearly. Thus, you can say that I enjoy album x on the list as much as the others in the interval of (x-5) to (x+5). For example album 37 would be as much enjoyed as 32, 33, 34, ..., 42, or something like that.

1. Cult Of Luna - Somewhere Along The Highway
2. Disillusion - Back To Times Of Splendor
3. Grand Alchemist - Intervening Coma-Celebration
4. Opeth - Blackwater Park
5. Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory
