Saturnus - Paradise Belongs to You (1996)

Essential Danish doom/death. Their first LP, Paradise Belongs to You masterfully splits the difference between melodic, atmospheric beauty and vicious heaviness, and stands shoulder-to-shoulder with anything by Anathema, My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, or any other old-school doom/death band. I swear, this is not hyperbole.

Track listing:
1. Paradise Belongs to You
2. Christ Goodbye
3. As We Dance the Paths of Fire and Solace
4. Pilgrimage of Sorrow
5. The Fall of Nakkiel (Nakkiel Has Fallen)
6. Astral Dawn
7. I Love Thee
8. The Underworld
9. Lament for This Treacherous World

Bloodstained walls
Time is melting
Curtains torn apart
Dark winds leap across the mountains
