2. Dissection, Storm of the Light's Bane (2002)

Dissection's 1995 classic album Storm of the Lights Bane is simultaneously symphonic and overtly satanic. It is possessed by both a melodic spirit and an evil dark entity. Dissection -- founded in Sweden by guitarist/vocalist Jon Nodveidt in 1989 -- found its niche among dark, extreme, anti-Christian metal, first starting out as a thrash band then evolving into a melodic-yet-blackened death metal group with a distinctive dual harmony guitar sound.

Storm of the Light's Bane was the band's second full length, and is more clean, crisp and polished than their debut, but that still doesn't take away from the haunting effect. Each song is a classic, including "Unhallowed," "Where Dead Angels Lie," and "Soulreaper." They feature moments of despair and agony. Light a black candle before you listen to this one!
