One act (Burzum) that I'm super familiar with, and one (Darkthrone) that I'm relatively new to. Which of these classic old school black metal acts do you prefer?

Burzum always seemed over-rated to me.  My vote goes to Darkthrone.

Don't like either, but Burzum has made one of the few "traditional" black metal albums I like, while Darkthrone......not so much.
Guess my vote has to be Burzum!

*burns a church*
Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer and Testament. The real Big Four of thrash metal!



Listen to doom metal, worship Satan

I like less Darkthrone but I voted them because they have more songs in english, they're not neo-nazists and in some albums have louder production (not better necessarily). I like more Burzum because of its ambient/electronic element and because Vikernes's vocals in Lost wisdom created the depressive black metal subgenre which I love.

Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

I like recent Burzum much more than recent Darkthrone. But I like Darkthrone's best moments better than Burzum's. Transylvanian Hunger is what Black Metal is about.

Haven't heard Darkthrone Embarrassed but I really like Burzum, especially Hvis Lyset Tar Oss.

Darkthrone.  I'd honestly take A Blaze in the Northern Sky and Under a Funeral Moon over Hvis Lyset Tar Oss and Filosofem.

I also like their punkish output they're doing lately as well, especially their 2010 album Circle the Wagons, which I think is their best album in years.

That one defines a 5 star black metal album for me. Listening to that one on a cold, snowy day is awesome. Thumbs Up

most VIkings didn't afford (broad)swords, they mostly used battle axes and arrows, only cheefs had swords, though it is said that the VIkings smitheringship rivals that of the dwarfs form legends and elfs, ( a known legendary fact)
