I honestly think Kaimadalthas' Nedstigning from Belus is one of his best songs.

I love Burzum but this is gonna suck.

@Shuyin: lol this is pretty different from Darkthrone. I'd start out with Filosofem because not only is it their best album (cuz it is), but it's the easiest to get into.

Hvis is without a doubt the best. Filosofem is a worthy second though

Belus was mediocre, and Fallen was less than mediocre, so I can't exactly say my hopes are high for this.

The cover art is pretty cool, though.

Haha thanks Tyr. Btw your list is pretty awesome, im tempted to check out 54.

And Timmons, if you're trying to get into bm you should start with Burzum.

Well all he has to do is write 9 riffs, gurgle a bit of nonsense and he's pretty much done his album

He's 38 years old now. People change, he's not the same person anymore. He has a wife supposedly.

Think of Raskolnikov, how do you think he would carry himself 20 years after the murder, after being
released from jail and living with Sonya?
