Must have

A cutting guitar, a bass that sounds like a buzzing of a wasp swarm, a shrill and dying voice, drums beating like chaos-tumult and a filthy production. This is the definition of pure black metal, the one of the renewal at the beginning of the 90's.

This resurrection has a name: Darkthrone, whose Transylvanian Hunger is their fourth opus, an album even faster and malicious than the previous ones. This opus has everything to become a cult: the lyrics, written by Fenriz and Varg (Burzum), and the sentence on the back cover that has brought up so many debates vaguely hinting of "Aryan Norwegian Black Metal", of course, without forgetting the unlimited potential of insanity in this work. With this piece Darkthrone have created a nearly perfect blackmetal pattern (some will say that A Blaze in the Northern Sky is better...) and many bands will try to recreate this atmosphere, but with no chance to ever near it.

During the 20 years that have passed since the release of Transilvanian Hunger, Darkthrone have spewed nothing but non-political noise in various musical contexts (metal-punk, black-n-roll, doom, NWOBHM). So maybe the ludicrous choice of words they used in 1994 to support and defend the album was actually a naïve reflection of their hateful culture and not their personal credo. Regardless, today even the Anti-Defamation League has to admit Transilvanian Hunger was a game-changer worth its weight in blood to everyone from Carpathain Forest to Wolves in the Throne Room. As simplistic its construction, as primitive its sound, Transilvanian Hunger remains one of the best representations of pure, no-frills black metal.
