People want underground metal in instrumental form. I see this everywhere I go; people talk about how they like the guitars and dislike/fear the vocals.

Are there enough instrumental death metal and black metal tracks to put together a compilation album?

All I remember:

Black Metal-

Enslaved - Norvegr (best one)
Burzum - Naar himmelen klarner
Gorgoroth - Heavens Fall
Beherit - most tracks from Electric Doom Synthesis
Havohej - I Arose (second part)

Death Metal-

Rigor Mortis - Six Feet Under

Blut Aus Nord - Procession of Dead Clowns

Burzum - Demo II:
Lost Wisdom
Lord Of The Depths
Spell Of Destruction
A Lost Forgotten Sad Spirit
Lost Wisdom (Taken from original Demo 1991)
Spell Of Destruction (Taken from original Demo 1991)
Channelling The Power Of Souls Into A New God (Taken from original Demo 1991)
Feeble Screams From Forests Unknown
My Key To The Purgatory
Rite Of Cleansure
A Lost Forgotten Sad Spirit

I actually prefer many of these demo version songs.  Some of them are paced more appropriately, some of the songs work better without vocals, and the sound and distortion works better on Demo II.

I like Darkthrone's Goatlord rehearsal (without vocals) as it really emphasises the twisted, algorithmic structures of their early style. It totally stands on its own without vocals. Otherwise I'm very mindful of the correct use of vocals i.e. whether it has the right power or if the texture and style is in keeping with the shape of the riffs etc. Ideally, vocals would be viewed as a component part of a group of instuments which is not so easily separable from the final composition (wherein each instrument is necessary in forming its delicate support structure).

Burzum- Det Som en Gang Var
The album version of this has harsh lyrics.  I am not aware of an instrumental version?
