VARIOUS ARTISTS: Fire on the Brain Volume 1: CD

Assorted black metal shards courtesy of Gorguts, Behemoth, Internal Bleeding, Macabre, Jungle Rot, Withered Earth, and others. As can be expected, some of this is pretty terrible, but there are some pretty smokin’ tracks to be found here as well, most notably Angelcorpse’s “Wolflust.” If you can get past all the ye olde satanic silliness and the fact that the singers sound like pro-wrestlers backed by failed free-form jazz guitarists, you might actually find yourself enjoying some of this.
