Bad Production as Art

You are not true black metal unless you own and love this album. It is as simple as that.

Without this album there would be no black metal.

Some of these reviews make me laugh. Such elitist snobs on here. The only thing I can agree with is that this is an essential album, a true must have. If you're getting into black metal, this should go in your black metal starter kit. While they (along with Mayhem and others) did thrust black metal into the spotlight and call attention to it- they did not single handedly "pioneer" black metal. Remember Venom? Bathory? Mercyful Fate- check your history, these bands got the ball rolling a good ten years before Transilvanian Hunger came out. Masterpiece? Yes. Important to black metal history? Yes. The best black metal album in creation? It's close, but it is far from number one.
