In the Woods... - Heart of the Ages (1995)

A classic of the black metal genre, with ambient and doom influences. No big introduction needed here; this was one of the most experimental and progressive black metal releases of the second wave, and one of my favourites of that period. Mandatory for anyone interested in the genesis of the post-black metal subgenre.
