Torog - Top 30 Metal albums

BEHEXEN forged their own impure path over the last 25 years. While we wait for the coming vinyl represses and new merchandising, we asked Hoath Torog, their devoted frontman, about his top 30 Metal albums ever. Here are his faves!

30.  DEATHSPELL OMEGA - Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice “Took a while to get into this album, but it hit hard after that. A monument in black metal. Amen
29.  OFERMOD - Mysterion Tes Anomias “Just a stunning atmosphere on this album. Masterpiece
28.  GUNS N’ ROSES - Use Your Illusion II
27.  GUNS N’ ROSES - Use Your Illusion I
26.  GUNS N’ ROSES - Appetite for Destruction “Near flawless album. Kings of rock n’ roll indeed and for sure
25.  ARKTAU EOS - Ai Ma Ra “I’ve listened to this a lot. Important album. Their best so far and the best dark ambient stuff
24.  THE DEVIL’S BLOOD - The Thousandfold Epicentre “Like the previous one but with a darker feeling on this. Great, great album
23.  THE DEVIL’S BLOOD - The Time of No Time Evermore “Usually melodic and psychedelic hard-rock is not my cup of tea, but I like this band a lot. TDB has some kind of weird dark aura upon them. Powerful rock in the name of the Devil!
22.  DISSECTION - Reinkaos “For me their best album. Started to like their music after I heard this album.10/10
21.  FUNERAL MIST - Salvation “Chaotic, raw and devotional. And here are perhaps the best lyrics
20.  LIMBONIC ART - Moon in the Scorpio “Impressive symphonic black metal, the best of those synth BM bands. All Dimmu Borgir etc albums are shameful alongside this
19.  WATAIN - Sworn to the Dark “A bit different from ‘Casus’, but not weaker. Can’t find any weak songs on this masterpiece
18.  WATAIN - Casus Luciferi “Really strong material and includes one of the best BM songs ever made, ‘Devil’s Blood’!
17.  DEICIDE - Legion “Not as strong as the first but classic anyhow
16.  DEICIDE - S/T “Got this just before black metal kicked in. The best death metal album ever made, and in many ways one of the most important albums ever
15.  GORGOROTH - Antichrist “As with the previous album…pure black metal!
14.  GORGOROTH - Pentagram “This was an impressive album. Raw and powerful black metal with good riffs. Vocals impressed me as well
13.  BEHERIT - Drawing Down the Moon “Classic tome. In the early days this was also a significant album for me
12.  MARDUK - Heaven Shall Burn… “The best Marduk album. Not one weak song on this album. Crushing
11.  MÜTIILATION - Majestas Leprosus “Well...I would list their whole discography here, but let’s take this one from the middle. A sick, gloomy and manic atmosphere throughout the whole album
10.  DARK THRONE - Under a Funeral Moon “Their best album for me
9.    EMPEROR - In the Nightside Eclipse “Sound and intensity not as perfect as on the debut, but still a monument
8.    EMPEROR - S/T (MLP) “Maybe the best record ever made. Totally blew me away. Still pure darkness
7.    IMPALED NAZARENE - Tol Cormpt Norz Norz Norz “First black metal band I ever saw live in 1990, just before this album was released. There was blood, fire, crosses, paint etc. made a big impact then. This album is filled with some kind of uncontrollable madness!
6.    MAYHEM – De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas “Pure black metal. One of the most important albums ever made
5.    BURZUM - Det Som Engang Var “Best Burzum for me, one of the best albums ever
4.    BURZUM - S/T “Minimalistic and dark. Something totally different. Vocals made a huge impact as well
3.    DIO - Holy Diver “Easily the best heavy metal singer of all time...the songs and the album cover were beyond everything. Ride the tiger!
2.    TWISTED SISTER - Stay Hungry “Not as evil as ‘The Last Command’ except the album cover. But the tracks really kicked the ass. And still do
1.    WASP - The Last Command “One of the first albums I had. At the end of ‘80 this was something scary and evil for a young boy. Bloody skulls and circular album full of classics
