Immortal - Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism (1992)
Well, here's another underground classic that, until now, I have neglected to listen to. It's a very raw and under-produced album that differs to a large degree from their later albums both musically and thematically. The lyrics address occult matters in addition to the icy, Arctic imagery the band is known for. It's certainly not as brutal, melodic or complex as, say, Blizzard Beasts or At the Heart of Winter, but it's quite worthy in its own right as an iconic black metal album (especially in light of the much-parodied video for The Call of the Wintermoon.)
