Rimsky-Korsakov's "Sheherezade" is completely essential, according to your tastes.

Added new sentence to http://www.wikihow.com/Appreciate-Authentic-Death-/-Black-Metal
I think it pretty fits:

Remember that artistic, high quality music is never fully understood and appreciated at first listen. Give your music several thorough listens, at different days, not 5 times at once. It's really important. Your mind kind of gets acquainted with the narration, structure, melodies of music. Only after that full appreciation of it's spirit and ideas comes to realization.

Would be grateful if someone edited my mistakes..

Rachmaninov's 1-st and 2-nd piano concertos, bring me similar moods as Enslaved. Moods of pure excitement and eternal beauty of nature.

As for the performances of concertos - Ashkenazy and Previn are my favorite.

I think you mentioned way too much albums. Personally, to get someone into either black or death, I would give two CDs to start with. I mean a copy of Filosofem and then Nespithe. Both albums are quite accessible and excellent works with a relatively clear sound making them easy to appreciate by both beginners and long-time fans.

;) Let me quote myself:

I think canonical collection of metal is a pack of albums, which would be just enough for listener to fully comprehend, appreciate and enjoy the Metal. Perhaps, even no other metal albums are needed to be heard aside from this collection..

by the way, what's the deal with Filosofem. I think it falls from that high level of artistry of three first Burzum albums. Even, Varg himself confesses it..

I think I share Aygesha's opinion. It's been my favourite Metal album for a long time. I haven't heard anything else quite as immersive. So entrancing and overwhelming.

I noticed it first in 'Heimdallr', but the lyrics seem to set up an archetypal/ideal state with the music gradually building up in form until becoming fully conscious of it. This could explain the instrumental 'Norvegr' as being finally at one with the land.

It sounds very epic, yet very precise. I can hear some of Grieg's 'Peer Gynt' Suite as a influence inspiration. Perhaps that helped them to acheive this effect?

'Hordanes Land' is my second favourite Enslaved release. It is less refined and works slightly differently, but is again, a very immersive listen. You can also hear many ideas that matured into passages of 'Vikingligr Veldi' songs.

Thanks, I'll try "Peer Gynt" and other Grieg music and see myself if there is a source of inspiration.

I'll confess that, in summer I intentionally took Vikingligr Veldi and other Black Metal to mountains with me to play in CD-player. I got up in the night, climbed up the mountain, walked in the valleys, under the moon, wind to the face, and listened to music. Perhaps, that was the most happy and joyful feelings ever felt by me..

Also, I would like to say that nature of my country Kyrgyzstan is very very beautiful. Kyrgyzstan area is 90 % mountains !! And the music seems to completely coincide with this nature

Hello, dear friends.
It's my first message in this forum, and I wanted it to be an admiration for Enslaved's "Vikingligr Veldi" album.

I cannot describe even the tenth part of my joy and amusement with this LP. The music just takes you in a magic journey, to another world, cold and windy, but nevertheless worthy and much more better than this real world. When listening to Vikingligr Veldi, I get an ultimate experience of nature, relentless weather, misty mountains, and mighty wind. This album is pure experience and sheer musical art, in my opinion.

Of course, all the abovesaid is subjective, but is there anyone sharing my thoughts toward the unattainable greatness of this work of Enslaved??

By the way, almost the same level of felicity and pure joy is obtained by me from Emperor's "In The Nightside Eclipse"

So, I hail Enslaved, and repeat my deep appreciation for their masterpiece"Vikingligr Veldi"

Your opinions are highly welcome! Maybe someone could explain the cause of this album being so great..
