Vocalist shouts out Pantera's 'Far Beyond Driven,' Weakling's 'Dead as Dreams' and more

Burzum, 'Filosofem' (1996)

Burzum, 'Filosofem' (1996)

Despite Burzum's obviously unfavorable politics and world view, this, for me, is the best album black metal has to offer. The production is outstanding, and the vocals are perfect. It's one of the few albums that instantly gives me a certain mood. It's an absolute classic.
