"Essential Black Metal Albums

Black metal is a wide ranging genre, from the low-fi "kvlt" sounds of the early albums to polished symphonic black metal. It's a genre that has wormed its way into many other styles as well, hence sub-genres like "blackened thrash" or "blackened death metal." Longtime fans of black metal will be very familiar with these groundbreaking releases, but for those newer to the genre, it's a good starting place to explore.   It's a list that could easily be expanded to a hundred or more, and is not meant to be an exhaustive compilation of every important black metal album, just a short list for newbies to check out to better understand the genre.
