    WHAT!

    Darkthrone destroys burzum. I just dont get why people like burzum so much. The guitar playing is terrible to the point where it seems he is just hitting frets. Just plain terrible.

    >=greater than or equal to. Darkthrone's catalogue is more consistantly good than Burzum's but Burzum is better from an artistic standpoint.

    I like all of Mayhem's material, even the later works.

    Um... destroys? Listen again friend. Burzum is pretty much the best BM ever.

    Indeed, although I really like Deathcrush too. Pure Holocaust ranks with the best BM of all time. As far as Norwegian Black Metal goes, my top five would be:

    Darkthrone - Transilvanian Hunger
    Ildjarn - Det Frysende Nordariket
    Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
    Immortal - Pure Holocaust
    Enslaved - Vikinglgr Veldi / Darkthrone - Under A Funeral Moon

    Ildjarn. His music is an acquired taste.

    Though Emperor strayed a bit from traditional black metal with 'Anthems' and onwards, I believe they are the best from the 'Classic' Norwegian scene.

    I think something to note is that all of those bands changed their sound rather noticably as their careers progressed.

    Emperor and Enslaved at their respective peaks are the best out of the bands mentioned

    Nothing beats darkthrone,blut aus nord and deathspell omega

    Well, if we're sticking to the original scene, going on the best work from each band:

    Emperor>Darkthrone>Burzum>Enslaved>Immortal>Mayhem.

    The top three all have multiple excellent releases, while the others really only touched greatness once.

    Truth.

    However, we have to recognize the futility of "Band X > Band Y > Band Z". All the top bands of the second wave played a fundamental role in developing the genre with their music, and debating who is the best among them is too often a matter of opinion.

    There needs to be more Pop/Black, stuff like Alcest, Lifelover, Amesoeurs, Joyless, Mörksvamp, Sleepless, and Fen.

    Blut Aus Nord is no longer relevant unless they start to record black metal again. They were important three years ago I guess. Bands will come along and do a better job of what they were trying to do.

    Today's black metal scene has become global, the only way to list the current scene's most important bands is to pinpoint the tops of each global scene.

    But to do it loosely, the global scene's most important bands seem to be Drudkh (Slavic/Nationalist), Xasthur (USBM), Deathspell Omega (French/Orthodox) and Watain (Swedish), each toward the top of their respective scenes.

    I couldn't pick the top band from the current Finnish scene, but the likes of Horna, Sargeist and Behexen certainly qualify.

    I'd also add Dark Tribe to that list since In Jeraspunta was probably the most startling and uncomfortable black metal release in quite some time

    I like Sargeist the best of Finland's scenes. Wolves in The Throne Room is developing as a more posterband of USBM.

    Have you listened to Interpol? If you amesoeurs you will like interpol. They are not black metal.....but just listen to them and you will get what I mean.

    But yea light-er black metal is a good idea.
