I searched for a topic like this, but I found nothing. I want some viking BLACK metal recommendations (Not melodic viking metal like Ensiferum or Finntroll) similar to bands like old Borknagar, old Enslaved, Windir and Ulver. Thanks.

Forefather. The 'Steadfast' album will blow you away.

Might as well check out Moonsorrow too.

I'd check early Sólstafir, Manegarm (with more folky-stuff, but excellent), Thyrfing, Kampfar, Falkenbach (old ones better), Myrkgrav or even October Falls (has a similar vibe though not "viking")... and Moonsorrow is a must check ! Better start with the last one (or the first) since it's the most "black" sounding.

I'm not a fan of the genre but Thyrfing is really ok and Steadfast from Forefather is indeed excellent.

BATHORY! That is all you really need right there.

Thyrfing has their moments if you are looking for something more modern, but really Bathory is where it is at my friend. Listen to "A Fine Day To Die." Odin's trusty 6-legged stead trampling over the Norselands....Epic.

Windir's "Arntor" is, in my mind, not only one of the best black metal albums ever released, but is indeed the perfect example of this genre.

Also seconding the mention of Moonsorrow.

Spectral, Windir and Bathory are pretty much what you should check out first

Oh yeah, how could I forget Enslaved? Add them to my Bathory suggestion.

Mithotyn, Svartsot and Falkenbach are also worth a mention
