It's all a matter of taste, most people only mention the earlier kvlt releases but the later albums display more mastery, it'd be a crime to discount any Graveland release. That being said, I still love the bombastic drumming of Capricoruns in the early releases, like "Following the Voice of Blood" and "The Celtic Winter". No other bands can rival the frozen grimness of those demos.

I wouldn't even consider the later material black metal because it's such a departure from the raw tendencies of the past. I'm glad Darken expanded and matured as a musician, it's a shame when artists hold back in an attempt to remain "kvlt".

"Cold Winter Blades" feature some heavy and cold Viking hooks, the same goes for "Spears of Heaven". Although, I think "Ogień przebudzenia" is the sound Darken was searching for all those years, it features real instrumentation and is truest to the pagan sound.

Carpathian Wolves is my favourite but also the one I heard first. Still puts me in a state of mind that no other record can.

This! Put the kettle on and take an afternoon off to work your way through them! Out of the post-2000/Creed of Iron albums, Will Stronger than Death is the best!

Memory and destiny is my personal favorite, i think it's when Rob hit his creative peak. If there is one Graveland album i'd recommend it's that.
But like the previous posters have mentioned, everything up to and including Dawn of the iron Blades is excellent.

I'm one of those fans that mainly recommends the material from In the Glare of Burning Churches to Immortal Pride. All of the material from these eras is essential, with my favorites being Celtic Winter, Carpathian Wolves, and Thousand Swords.

This is the most black metal material in my opinion. Also be sure to check out other Temple of Fullmoon bands, Veles, Infernum, Legion, Fullmoon, Mysteries, etc.

Thank you all for the suggestions. Can anyone tell me what "Resharpening Thousand Swords" I'll about? Is it a remaster, rerecording,etc.?

Creed of Iron, Memory and destiny and Immortal pride is a good place to start.
