Nokturnal Mortum-Goat Horns (1997)

Absolutely phenomenal debut full-length from Ukraine's kings of pagan/nationalistic black metal, Nokturnal Mortum. This album is full of beautifully-crafted epic/symphonic black metal songs, with a hints of Ukrainian folk influence throughout. An absolute masterpiece, like all of Nokturnal Mortum's music. Highly recommended. MetalAgen Records.

one of the best works from this ancient slavonic beast, very orchestral (I guess 2 synth players were on this album), but not kitchy or too artificial. They werent so radical during these times yet :)
