Within a very a short period 1999-2001 some of the most important Norwegian bands winked on industrial cold mechanic sounds and released now classic but rather unorthodox black metal albums.

For me 666 International and Gland Declarataion of War (not a Moonfog release but has the same direction fron the same period) are aged very well, especially the DHG album, still delivers that cold inhuman madness just like on the first listen. Rebel Extravaganza is good but doesn’t have the same effect 20 years after. Thorns album is still very good though.

All 4 are considered as classics nowadays, which one is your favorite and why?

1. 666 International
2. Grand Declaration Of War
3. Thorns
4. Rebel Extravanagza

DHG and Thorns - both great, still listening to them after many years passed from discovering. Rebel Extravaganza sounded OK, but not as good - haven't heard it for years. And I always considered Grand Declaration as weak album. Need to try that new remixed version - at least the bass drum kick doesn't sound as bad as on original.

Thorns s/t is a bona fide classic.
I recently got into Rebel extravaganza again, not as bad as I thought it was years ago

DHG for me. RE and Thorns are close behind and GDoW is far behind.

Voted for GDoW, but all 4 are amazing. I'd also add IX Equilibrium, the part at 4:06 in Decrystallizing Reason still gives me goosebumps every time.

My vote definitely goes to DHG. I still listen to 666 often

There's a pretty good article on these albums except for GDoW:

All of these are very difficult for me to get into. The plastic modern production combined with those angular industrial parts don't do anything for me.

Really wanted to get into DHG when it came out, but it never clicked. All their albums and the Satanic Art ep was really good, but this one was not good. The electronic elements seemed somehow dated even then, and i think their albums after have the same faults. It is maybe about preferences, but it seems like they included beats inspired by the worst "chill out lounge" Mo`Wax or Ninja Tune stuff.

After listening to Thorns so much before the album came it just did not work out. Never listened much to the Mayhem album. Already was a bit sceptical against Satyricon at the time for some weird (not good weird) stuff on the ep and stupid posing. Not harsh enough for being industrial and lacking epic riffs.

Thorns.
The perfect combination of harsh norwegian riffing and a nocturnal industrial -cold as fuck- feeling.Lots of claustrophobic moments and atmosphere.
Snorre is a genius.
This album is the definition of Black Metal.
Everything is so dark and morbid..
Aldrahn and Satyr performances are best than ever.Creepy as hell.
Very few bands can reproduce that feeling.
It's the same feeling and achievement with old classic albums of Norwegian BM,but this one welcomes and hails the new age with its own majesty.
Living proof that BM is alive ,even in the 00s.

A monument and a reference point for me personally.

Who can forget that awesome charateristic artwork with the insect?

Plus,I don't like saying for this album it's ''industrial''.
It has nothing to do with ''industrial''.It's pure Black Metal.
There are some ''industrial'' touches,here and there,that's it.

I consider the rest albums of the poll weak,in comparison with that masterpiece.
Thorns are untouchable.
