Here Are The 40 Best Black Metal Albums Ever According to Metal Hammer

Posted by on August 23, 2018 at 1:31 pm

Metal Hammer has taken to their site Louder Sound to publish what they believe are the best 40 black metal albums of all time.

There are some pretty obvious choices in there alongside some really interesting ones. One that I initially wanted to call bullshit on was Morbid Visions by Sepultura, but I see where they're coming from – it's basically blackened thrash. Whether or not it belongs on this list is a different story.

Check out the quick and dirty list below.
