    I was torn between Burzum and Emperor, but I ended up voting Burzum.

    Although, if Darkthrone was on the list, they would have easily secured my vote.

    Burzum, although in 2001 I would probably have picked Immortal or Einherjer.

    Wow, a very old thread. Back then in 2001, i didn't listen to metal, and i wasn't even a member of UM.
    My vote goes to almighty Dimmu Borgir, my first ever Black Metal band, and i still like them, no matter what.

    Enslaved got my pick. Probably would have made the same choice in '01. That or Emperor.

    I picked Burzum. I'm most familiar with them. I'm still missing stuff from everyone else, although Limbonic Art & Emperor own.

    Strewth!


    This thread died just days before the 9/11 attacks. I was in 7th grade that day. I remember we all got called down to the school gym, and being surprised that there were no chairs set up for this assembly. Then the principal spilled the news, and we all went back to class and watched CNN all day.

    Was a crazy day. I think I was too young to grasp the magnitude of it all

    I vote for Limbonic Art because it's the only 90s black metal I haven't got tired of.

    It's also a shame Thorns isn't included.

    Emperor got my vote.

    It's actually nice to bring back some old threads like this one.

    Burzum, with Emperor and Darkthrone (though not listed) not far behind.

    Burzum's music just struck me the moment I started listening to it. I can't describe it, but Burzum just... works.

    In Longing Spirit is a great song, even though I don't think it's considered a part of Anthems.

    AFAIK, it was recorded for Anthems, but got switched out for another song last-minute, and placed on the "Reverence" single.

    But doesn't matter to me; the version of Anthems I got, came with the Reverence single as bonus tracks; so I consider it part of the album. And I agree, great song; my favorite off of the album. :kickass:

    I went for Burzum.

    Burzum has the best consistency with honest music that means more than just the sounds; and this across multiple albums. If Mayhem ever had the chance to make a few more albums like "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" however, it might be closer.
