Drottnar: Spiritual Battle

Band: Drottnar
Album: Spiritual Battle
Genre: Doom Metal (With a Small Mix of Death Metal)
Rating: 10/10
This album is considered a full-length, but it's really a compilation of 2 demos the band released back in the early 90's. This album is definitely one of the best doom/death metal albums I've ever heard (christian or non). The vocals are very well done, have a very much black metal feel to them (about as "black metal" as their logo). The guitar and drum work are very catchy (as catchy as doom metal can get). Each song tends to be rather long, but not annoying in any way. For listeners that are new to the style, I'd highly recommend this album as your starter.
