Major contributors to the extreme metal scene in Poland, Behemoth inflicted this black metal debut on the world in 1995. Bearing the marks of the beast in tormented wraith vocals and expansive structures (but with slightly more deliberate pacing), Sventevith (Storming Near the Baltic) nevertheless fits right in with the purist Norwegian scene. Acoustic guitars and creepy synths make "From the Pagan Wastelands" as weird as any black metal fan could ask for, but it's the tempo shifts and riff-laden breakdowns that invite comparisons to seminal dudes Darkthrone.
