    Directions: There is no better way to celebrate Advent and the birth of our Lord and Savior then by spending the season listening to Darkthrone. Rank Darkthrone's 17 studio albums. Order and number each album 1-17. Ties are OK. Your first place album earns 17 points, your second place album earns 16 points, etc.

    Rules:
    • You may rank as few as 9 albums. Lists with less than 9 albums will not be counted.
    • If you list less than 17 albums, the first placed album will still get 17 points, the last placed album will still get 1 point, and the albums in between will have points distributed proportionately. The average points earned for albums that are not listed will not be impacted positively or negatively, so if you don't rank an album, you neither help it or hurt it.
    • You may not vote if you have fewer than 100 posts on the forum (The TechnicalBarbarity Rule)

    At the end, the albums will be ranked based on their average number of points per vote.

    You have until Saturday January 6th to finalize your list, re-familiarize yourself albums you haven’t heard in awhile, familiarize yourself with albums you haven’t heard at all, lobby for any albums you think are underrated, and lobby against any albums you think are overrated.

    And please, no pseudo-Machiavelli shit. Just rank them as you see them.

    Soulside Journey (1991)
    A Blaze in the Northern Sky (1992)
    Under a Funeral Moon (1993)

    Goatlord (1996)
    Total Death (1996)
    Ravishing Grimness (1999)
    Plaguewielder (2001)

    I dont own Panzerfaust and The Cult is Alive. Might give me a reason to finish off the collection.

    I really love the black/crust/whatever albums. I wonder if we'll hear any of that "but other bands do that style so much better" nonsense, because no they fucking dont.

    The only crust/whatever album I heard was FOAD and it was garbage. I'll stick to the first 4 albums.

    OK I should listen to Arctic Thunder. Haven't really followed the latest few albums, some of what I heard seemed boring, i.e. I remember really liking the song about leaving no cross unturned, but then I got bored listening to that entire album.

    Wish they skipped those awful ‘female’ vocals. Otherwise it’s nasty Autopsy style death metal.

    This was another instance where I started feeling bad about having certain albums ranked so low, particularly Total Death and Plaguewielder which I feel are two of their most underrated, but I suppose that's always going to be case when a bands discography is so large and for the most part pretty consistent.

    A Blaze... is definitely the best Darkthrone if you ask me. Under a Funeral Moon is more refined, but it loses some of the abrasive filth and chaos from the former.

    Lies.

    Pure Holocaust is better than UAFM, though. Controversial opinion possibly - so are the peaks of ItNE and VV.

    I kind of have an issue with the title track from UAFM - the opening riff always sounds really jarring and dumb when I put it on. I always have to reacoustom myself to that song. It’s strange.

    Ildjarn, Forest Poetry and Strength and Anger (and Folkloric Necro Metal) are the best Norwegian black metal albums.

    Nah, I'm pretty much joking even though I love the high art that Ildjarn offered the world. Your list seems fine if we kick Hvis Lyset Tar Oss off and add Pure Holocaust in its place. As long as we agree that Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk isn't even in the discussion for top Norwegian albums since it's pretentious and unfocused garbage.
