North-Thorns on the Black Rose (1995)

Debut full-length from now rather well-known Polish pagan black metal band, North. This is raw 'n grim pagan black metal, filled with an old-school vibe, reminiscent of Darkthrone in some places, but with a very distinct sense of melody, and a pervasive pagan atmosphere. Recommended. Astral Wings Records.
