Changed a few things. Added Cadaver, Striborg and Cannibal Corpse.
striborg is an unexpected pick for you!
Back in my old days I got into Striborg because his CD's with bushland cover photos stood out to me. Super fucking Aussie. Then over the years I just lost touch with black metal, but I was in the mood last couple days and surprisingly it held up. Even jammed it a couple times since. Very nostalgic. Probably considered a piece of shit to most seasoned black metallers.
This was my list when I was writing for UM back in 2004:

1. Anata - Under a Stone With No Inscription
2. Behemoth - Demigod
3. Borknagar - Epic
4. Arsis - A Celebration of Guilt
5. Vintersorg - The Focusing Blur
6. Black Label Society - Hangover Music Vol. VI
7. Bergthron - Faust Für Faust
8. Cruachan - Pagan
9. Insision - Revealed and Worshipped
10. Leviathan - Tentacles of Whorror
11. Ensiferum - Iron
12. Vomitory - Primal Massacre
13. The Chasm - The Spell of Retribution
14. Hate Forest - Battlefields
15. Amon Amarth - Fate of Norns
16. Vader - The Beast
17. Deathspell Omega - Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice
18. Drudkh - Autumn Aurora
19. Darkthrone - Sardonic Wrath
20. Malevolent Creation - Warkult
21. Fission - Crater
22. Suffocation - Souls to Deny
