Naglfar

Naglfar ranks as one of the most respected Swedish black metal bands, with perhaps only Marduk more well-known. Formed in 1992, the band released a pair of good albums in the late nineties, but really came into their own with 2003's Sheol. Naglfar doesn't push the boundaries of black metal as much as solidify them, as Sheol contains all the elements of classic black metal without sounding derivative. Sheol's mix of old-school aggression with modern production and musicianship makes Naglfar a solid and recommended band.
