    "All of the other black metal bands
    Used to laugh and call them names (like 'Queer' and 'gay shit!')
    They never let poor Emperor
    Join in any black metal games (like church burnings)!"

    Seriously though, why does this matter?

    Voted De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, Nightside Eclipse a close second

    .

    Especially since "everyone" outside of Norway made fun of the entire scene it's a weird point. I'm with Leif Edling on this one.

    I had to vote for In The Nightside Eclipse. I like all the others but Nightside has been my favourite for longer than ive known about the others. You left out satyricon's The Shadowthrone and dimmu borgir's For All Tid. I would of thought those would definately be on the poll. I wouldnt have voted for them but they still should be there.

    I disagree. Satyricon and Dimmu Borgir are nothing compared to the bands on this poll, even Emperor.

    so what? i prefer Ulver to Darkthrone in 9 of 10 cases

    ITNE is a masterpiece aswell. HLTO is a great album, but it has a huge flaw which is 'Tomhet'

    voted DMdS by a long way - easily the best BM album imo. Gorgoroth & Enslaved placing 2nd and 3rd.

    don't be retarded. i don't like the third or fourth tracks as much as the first two either, but neither of them are 'huge flaws' - both are perfect.

    "Tomhet" is actually my second favorite song on the album. I see it as the perfect track that allows for reflection on life as a whole, not just the three tracks it follows. It's my runner up for the song that will be played on my deathbed, followed by "A Portal to Nowhere" by The Chasm.

    sacramentum 'cries from a restless soul' is DEFINITELY my deathbed song. well, in metal. mad river's 'eastern light'--->'wind chimes' would win overall.

    mad river are so fucked up and specific to my tastes that i'm actually pretty wary of recommending them to anyone. even i didn't like them on first listen.

    you need to check out captain beyond as well!

    A lot of those bands are pretty good though.

    But come on...

    Fucking Emperor bud. :erk:

    Edit: And Ozzman, Iron Maiden really has only put out 2-3 good songs tbh :V

    I don't consider melodeath/Gothenburg to be good.

    Iron Maiden put out (at least) seven awesome albums.

    That is where we disagree then. I like Aces High, The Trooper, Children of the Damned, and Hallowed Be Thy Name, but other than that, I won't be swayed by those washed-up melody-merchants.

    I just listened to Ceremony of Opposites this afternoon. I can't say I understand why anyone would go crazy over that. It's very well performed, but the songwriting is really bland.

    Prowler
    Sanctuary
    Running Free
    Phantom of the Opera
    Wrathchild
    Killers
    Purgatory
    The Number of the Beast
    Run to the Hills
    2 Minutes to Midnight
    The Clairvoyant
    Be Quick or Be Dead
    Lord of the Flies
    Paschendale

    Not to mention plenty of other songs that aren't classics but are still good.

    You clearly don't know the first fucking thing about Maiden.

    I voted for Transilvanian Hunger.

    I get pretty tired now of hearing the first song off Hvis Lyset Tar Oss. That song is way too long and repetitive...in a bad way I think. The third track is probably the best on that album.
