Death Metal

morbid angel - blessed are the sick (best of death metal)Morbid Angel steered the extremity of Sepultura and Possessed into complex codices of centrally-fused melodic structures and occult knowledge.

at the gates - gardens of grief (best of death metal)At the Gates used fast lead rhythm playing to create overlapping melodic structures and unsettling atmosphere.

therion - beyond sanctorum (best of death metal)Therion made stirring mood pieces out of primitive death metal by offsetting the tangible with mystically oblique guitar work, then became a progressive band.

demilich - nespithe (best of death metal)Demilich wrote corkscrew songs of evolving lead phrases and jagged percussion, with themes esoteric to observations of life's structure hidden beneath appearance.

unleashed - where no life dwells (best of death metal)Unleashed used simple thunderous riffs in bardlike storytelling structure to create something unknown in the familiar.

massacra - final holocaust (best of death metal)Massacra crafted high-speed phrasal beauty in the midst of battering chaos and an uneasy feeling of missing significance in life.

sepultura - morbid visions/bestial devastation (best of death metal)Sepultura invented early death metal with a pattern language of riffs leading to simple but effective conclusions.

Black Metal

hellhammer - triumph of death (best of black metal)Hellhammer/Celtic Frost made grand Wagnerian operatic journeys out of alienated, dark, heavy music.

bathory - the return (best of black metal)Bathory inspired by classical music, developed raw and primitive metal based on the conflict between leitmotifs of evil.

immortal - pure holocaust (best of black metal)Immortal made restless melody that calls us beyond the safety of technological life to desire combat, tragedy, desolation and triumph.

ildjarn-nidhogg - cd (best of black metal)Ildjarn/Sort Vokter cycled deconstruction back into creation from the simplest, most inherent elements possible.

enslaved - vikinglgr veldi (best of black metal)Enslaved translated ancient folk music into breathtakingly beautiful modern arias to the uncertainty of challenge and the peace of mind in striving for higher purposes.

burzum - hvis lyset tar oss (best of black metal)Burzum awakened the impulse toward fantasy and appreciation of the ancient past in mortals with music that inspires the dark id which desires more than the comfort our egos can provide.

emperor - wrath of the tyrant (best of black metal)Emperor made sweeping twilight sympathies which inspired the capacity for dream in those who had thought life had no more surprises.

graveland - the celtic winter (best of black metal)Graveland rendered a dark ambience from archaic styles of folk melody and rejuvenated our capacity for faith in that which is greater than the individual.
