    I think they're a very elite band. Their use of percussion is unparalleled and the melodies they come up with are more than catchy; they're powerful (Rhun)and they're the band best able to create an atmosphere with their music. I don't care if they're classified as 'middle earth' metal or 'Tolkien' metal. They're awesome. But of course one man's trash is another man's treasure...so to each his own. Respect.

    Everybody in this thread chose Hvis Lyset Tar Oss for a Burzum album, but I'd suggest starting with Filosofem if you're new to the genre. And I'm not saying this because I like it better.

    Summoning are not one of the hundreds bands who just try to do the saw raw black metal thing as everyone else. There isn't really anyone who sounds quite like them. The tolkien theme can be taken allegorically. Even Immortal sings about a fantasy realm; black metal doesn't have to stay with a narrow-minded set of allowed themes.

    So, my update...

    Here's the first wave:

    Dissection - Storm of the Light's Bane
    Darkthrone - Blaze in the Northern Sky
    Bathory - Under the Sign of the Black Mark
    Emperor - Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk
    Summoning - Dol Gulder
    Drudkh - Autumn Aurora
    Deathspell Omega - Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice
    Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss

    Have just finally got them all in and have given a solid listen to the Summoning (it came in first) and think it's awesome.

    The Bathory album - raw and kicks ass

    Am sitting down tonight and tomorrow night with the headphones...

    Now onto Darkthrone...

    Keep the recommendations coming.

    Nice. Sunwheel and Wind of the Night Forests are especially amazing.
