Primordial - A Journey's End (1998)
And speaking of Irish metal bands, none is more well-known than this epic black metal band. A Journey's End represents the band moving away from their traditional black metal roots and finding their own sound. The atmosphere is very dark, and the music is almost progressive. Indeed, it feels somewhat similar to Opeth (or perhaps it should be vice versa?). For an early black metal release, this one is pretty polished and enjoyable. It's not quite as solid as their subsequent releases, but don't let that stop you from listening to it.
