    What is, in your opinion, the best second wave Black Metal band? For me, it was hard to choose but went with Mayhem. I want to clarify that this is a poll for historical bands.

    While each & every one of those bands is great, I have to vote *other and nominate Enslaved. Their early work is as strong or better than that of their peers and what they've done the past decade is without peer.

    Can't narrow it down to one. Burzum, Darkthrone and Gorgoroth.

    Mayhem for DMDS alone.

    Pure Fucking Armageddon and Deathcrush are great, too. But they're more Death than Black.

    Burzum, with Enslaved and Darkthrone just a tiny bit behind.

    Darkthrone, although I could have easily chosen Burzum , Gorgoroth or Mayhem.

    Dissection. I would not just label them as 'black metal' either. Can't say I care for majority of the other bands on the list. very easy

    Burzum, Enslaved and Immortal. If I had to pick just one, probably Enslaved because they still kick so much ass to this day.

    Immortal, with Emperor and Enslaved close behind.

    I've never understood the Mayhem love. DMDS just doesn't compare to the seminal albums of some of those others. Take away the aura of the band, and....well, you do the math.

    It's cool, though

    Burzum, but I easily could've voted for Darkthrone as well

    Darkthrone.

    Nobody matches the amount of quality releases they have.

    Voted for Darkthrone. It would have been cooler if you added Limbonic Art. Another quality band.
