Top 55 black metal albums

My ranking of best black metal albums. Some picks may be unpopular so if you agree or disagree argue like an human. List includes any type of black metal (avant-garde, blackened death, melodic and so on..) but first wave such as mercyful fate and venom which belongs more to heavy metal.
55Agrypnie
Grenzgænger


Nice melodic black with a little bit of post influence
54Transcending Bizarre?
The Four Scissors


Experimental that space from industrial to symphonic
53Satyricon
Nemesis Divina


An iconic anti-religious work with some pagan influences and
52Keep of Kalessin
Armada


Battle metal?
51Burzum
Hvis lyset tar oss


Yeah i know, too low. As much i like his early works and the lo-fi atmosphere i always found Burzum overrated in the metal panorama
50Peste Noire
La Sanie des Siècles


Experimental, primal and dirty sounding french BM. Sound like it's coming from late 80s
49Sigh
Imaginary Sonicscape


Psychedelic avnt-garde black metal that features some of the most trippy atmospheres in metal. The only flaw is that fucking muzzled bland drumming.
48Hoth
Oathbreaker


A blighted hope may be one of the catchiest tracks in black metal, nice blending of folk and meloblack.
47Akercocke
Words That Go Unspoken...


Proggy weird black death with an original sound
46Shylmagoghnar
Emergence


Melodeath meets atmospheric black
45Primordial
The Gathering Wilderness


The band and album's names are some of the most appropriate ever
44Mithotyn
In The Sign Of The Ravens


Cheesy but super fun viking black metal
43Wolves in the Throne Room
Diadem Of 12 Stars


What a debut for an american black metal band. The lo-fi production, the guitar harmonies and the female backing vocals fits perfectly
42The Kovenant
Nexus Polaris


Cosmic atmosphere in a overlooked symphonic work
41Taake
Hordalands Doedskvad


Energetic, angry and passionate
40Forgotten tomb
Songs to Leave


Many depressive suicidal albums flaws into ridiculous, not this one. One of the bleakest albums ever
39Dimmu Borgir
Enthrone Darkness Triumphant


When they were masters of modern symphonic black metal genre
38Panopticon
Roads to the North


A long breathtaking journey that blends atmospheric, folk, melodic black metal and even bluegrass
37Mayhem
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas


While i've never got used to the vocals this remains one of the most iconic and important albums in the genre with it's satanic atmosphere and original style
36Solefald
The Linear Scaffold


Some of the weirdest atmospheres for a black metal album
35Moonsorrow
Verisäkeet


This will send you to a different epoque
34Dragged Into Sunlight
Hatred For Mankind


One of the most misanthropic worls ever. sludgy, soiled dark and depraved.
33Summoning
Stronghold


While it could be a little repetitive at times this will make you trip to medieval times
32Negura Bunget
Om


Proggy pagan BM with some of the most esoteric vibes in music
31Vinterland
Welcome My Last Chapter


Some of the most catchiest and energic melodies in black metal
30Solstafir
Köld


1/3 post metal 1/3type o negative and 1/3 black metal
29Thurisaz
Scent of a Dream


Pure epicness
28Coldworld
Melancholie


will make you feel physically cold
27Empyrium
Songs of Moors and Misty Fields


A journey through nordic landscapes
26Behemoth
The Satanist


One of the most triumphant albums ever, masters of modern blackened death
25Sacramentum
Far Away from the Sun


Occult, melodic, passionate. Aged perfectly
24Celtic Frost
To Mega Therion


One of the most important influences for the genre, truly ahead of their time
23The Ruins Of Beverast
Rain Upon The Impure


The less accessible album on this list. Once you get used to the chaotic production you will hear darkness incarnated into music, one of the darkest albums in history
22Gris
Il Était Une Forêt...


Beautifully depressing
21Shining (SWE)
V - Halmstad


The most original dsbm album ever, the guitar sound is perfect
20Windir
1184


Triumphant epicness
19Arcturus
The Sham Mirrors


Oniric atmosphere and transcendent vibes in one of the best avant-garde black metal albums ever
18Old Man's Child
Ill Natured Spiritual Invasion


One of the most underrated ever, Galder gave us an occult symphonic majestic lp that beats every dimmu borgir album (imo)
17Lunar Aurora
Andacht


Upsetting cryptic and somehow disturbing
16Darkthrone
A Blaze in the Northern Sky


Pure definition of black metal
15Ulver
Bergtatt - Et eeventyr i 5 capitler


While i'm not a huge fan of the later works their debut remains one of the best things in atmospheric black metal
14Deafheaven
Sunbather


A modern masterpiece that brought light into the black lifting you up to the skies
13Nokturnal Mortum
The Voice of Steel


This makes you want to become Ukrainian
12Weakling
Dead as Dreams


The best american bm album ever. Sometimes doomy, sometimes atmospheric and overall upsetting. So cryptic that you can't even find lyrics or physical copies
11Alcest
Écailles De Lune


The most celestial album i've listened in years. Beautifully Ethereal, this makes you feel like you are in the deepest abyss in the ocean
10Ihsahn
After


The reprise in "on the shores/ undercurrent" is stuck in my head. Both relaxing and creepy, an experimental masterpiece from one of the best songwriters in metal
9Immortal
At the Heart of Winter


The soundtrack for winter storms. A melodic elegant and majestic work
8Enslaved
Axioma Ethica Odini


A complex philosophical masterwork that combines perfectly progressive elements to the grim sound of BM. Some of the best clean vocals in the sub genre
7Necrophobic
The Nocturnal Silence


Undiscussed kings of blackened death, their brutality was ahead of their time and still they managed to fit dark atmsophere in it
6Deathspell Omega
Fas - Ite, Maledicti, In Ignem Aeternum


Maybe the closest thing to hell you'll ever listen. A structured chaos that will bring you down with the devil
5Dissection
Storm of the Light's Bane


Both poetic and misanthropic, an occult masterpiece that blends ominous brutality with an elegant use of mwlodies
4Rotting Christ
Theogonia


RC already were one of my favorite BM bands but they certainly outdone themself with this. A combination of bm traditional brutality, Greek musical influences and majestic melodies.
3Bathory
Blood Fire Death


One of the first bands to blend atmosphere, war chants and epicness to a brutal rush of heaviness.
2Agalloch
The Mantle


dark atmospheric masterpiece that features some of the gloomiest vibes in metal, haunyingly beautiful
1Emperor
In the Nightside Eclipse


Everything you can love from black metal in one album, it's occult with it's satanic themes, it's atmospheric with a brief melodic vibe, heavy like hell, the keyboards add that touch of melancholy and the transcendent sound is outstanding
