Norwegian Black Metal

I'm willing to say that at least 95% of the readers of this blog got into black metal through the musical exports of one country: Norway. Burzum, Satyricon, Mayhem, Gorgoroth, Darkthrone, Immortal, Emperor, Ulver - whoever, really. The fact is that at one point in time we all flew the "True Norwegian Black Metal" flag while we threw up the horns to some buzzing, awfully-produced riffs, laughed along with Immortal's "Call of the Wintermoon" video, or poured over books and articles about what happened in the early 90's that caused this scene to really be something exceptional.

Today there will be posts here of albums you may have heard many times before, and there may be some that you skipped over, but we all know know where it will be from.
