De Mysteriis Dom Sathanus

5.0 out of 5 stars Black and extreme metals finest moment!, 8 Sep 2001
This album along with emperors "in the nightside eclipse" and darkthrones "a blaze in the northern sky"is the finest example of the norwegian black metal.Howevere while both the other releases are good, they dont hold a candle to this masterpiece of extremity.From the begining of this release MayheMs and Euronymous's intentions are made clear with black metals signiture tune the chilling and intnensliy thrilling classic 'funeral fog', The release hits similar heights with 'buried in time and dust','pagan fears'and 'from the dark past'.Overall Euronymous maintains a chillin cold and bleak atmosphere with a trerrificly raw guitar tone and blur speed riffary,Hellhamers pounding and creative drumming is another highpoint of the album taking the albums intensity up to another level.Atillas vocals contrary to some reviewers thoughts are in my opinion very good however they never match the intensity of Deads gut ripping roars and tourtored screams.However the true musical and leading force of MayheM and the black metal sceane is euronymous whose brillance for creating furious and atomspheric riffing became the defyning character of the sceane and of this release this truly was both MayheMs and Euronymous's magnum opus
