Strength and Anger

How about this to fuck up your Valentine's Day? Ildjarn is perhaps the most influential figure in the world of harsh, raw Black Metal, and Strength and Anger is his most caustic and memorable work. This unrelenting piece of filth was Ildjarn's third album and was released in 1996. Not for the casual listeners, dilett,antes, hobbyists, gawkers, or day people, this is pure undistilled venom from the blackest recesses of the forests of Black Metal.

funny you posted this today, been blasting it all last week for the first time in a while, amazing stuff, tracks 4-11 are the absolute pinacle of raw filthy bm for me. Ildjarns best for sure though all his stuff has its charms, i even love the ambient albums though i may be in the minority there.

Yessir, it's unrelenting alright. Hard to tell what it has in common with black metal, though. Because Ildjarn was in Emperor? Because he doesn't like people? Try a nice long walk instead.

These could be Emerson, Lake, & Palmer covers - seriously, who would know?

Impaled Northern Moonforest is the hardest black metal album ever.

such an important album to me. and as always, the description and timing so fitting. it penetrates through everything in a way that many can not. certainly wish i had thought to listen to it last week.
