If they managed more than 30-something minutes it'd be at least #2 on my list. Shame they self-destructed and turned into a Depeche Mode thing.
 
Burzum, Darkthrone, and Incantation are three perfect albums. Easy top 3. Then I came up with about 20 more very good to great albums, and then about 7 or 8 more albums I'd still like to hear.
 
What I have listened to from this year. King's-X will be in the Top 3 along with Obituary and Machine Head and I have an excuse to check out that Infester album again. Burzum will be the default #1 so we should just do 2 through 10 tbh:

Megadeth - Youthanasia
Dream Theater - Awake
Testament - Low
Corrosion of Conformity - Deliverance
Slayer - Divine Intervention
Satyricon - The Shadowthrone
Obituary - World Demise
Machine Head - Burn My Eyes
Acid Bath - When the Kite String Pops
Bethlehem - Dark Metal
Enslaved - Frost
Mayhem - De mysteriis dom Sathanas
Cannibal Corpse - The Bleeding
Burzum - Hvis lyset tar oss
In Flames - Lunar Strain
Pantera - Far Beyond Driven
Darkthrone - Transilvanian Hunger
Black Sabbath - Cross Purposes
Dio - Strange Highways
Bolt Thrower - ...For Victory
King's X - Dogman
Aftermath - Eyes of Tomorrow
Incantation - Mortal Throne of Nazarene
Infectious Grooves - Groove Family Cyco
Infester - To the Depths, in Degradation
Pride & Glory - Pride & Glory
Satyricon - Dark Medieval Times
Virgin Steele - The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, Part 1
Cryptopsy - Blasphemy Made Flesh
