Enthroned - Prophecies of Pagan Fire (1995)

Straight Belgian black metal, no chaser. This record is so underrated. Why the fuck do people want black metal to be original? Tremolo picking, blast beats, some keyboards, raspy screams, the occasional ripping solo, and lyrics about the three W's (winter, woods, and wolves) are all you will ever need, and anyone who says otherwise probably thinks that Sunbather is an important black metal record.

Track listing:
1. Intro (Prophecies of Pagan Fire)
2. Deny the Holy Book of Lies
3. Under the Holocaust
4. Scared by Darkwinds
5. Tales from a Blackened Horde
6. At Dawn of a Funeral Winter
7. Rites of the Northern Fullmoon
8. Skjeldenland
9. At the Sound of the Millennium Black Bells
10. As the Wolves Howl Again

The black goat of the eternal woods

Maybe try these too:
Svartsyn - ... His Majesty (2000)
Dark Fortress - Tales from Eternal Dusk (2001)
