Gated drums, church organ riffs, and lyrics so stupid you'll get autism following along with them - and still, the charm is undeniable. Please share your thoughts on this much maligned/venerated niche.

Heaven Shall Burn..., because it's the one I remember most. Allegiance come in second and then Setherial third. Lord Belial are good but they've never really been anything more than that, for me.

Triumphator don't really fit in this poll as I don't associate that LP with this sound, though that may well be personal preference and nothing to with general style. The aesthetics differ, which may be bias from discovering Arioch's earlier stuff through FM's Salvation.

Triumphator were definitely part of this scene. Wings of Antichrist was recorded by Peter Tägtgren at the Abyss, and it even featured Fredrik Andersson on drums. Sure the lyrical content is a little more involved, but aside from that, it's pretty much straight up Marduk worship.

Glad to see Allegiance in this list although I prefer "Vrede" and "Hymn til hangagud" over "Blodörnsoffer", but in this case "Blodörnsoffer" gets my vote.

Nord would be the one with biggest overall musical qualities for me, but to make it less obvious I voted Enter the Moonlight Gate. Typical colours of the era on the album cover (even though unusually done by T. Jörgenson rather than Necrolord), ridiculous "dark romance" lyrics dedicated to girlfriends, girlfriends on guest vocals/instruments... But also memorable songs. Been revisiting that one a lot lately, perfect product of its era with all the charms and flaws included.

Because the definition of "norsecore" differs from person to person. For some it's all the Norge/Svenska blastbeat fast black metal. For some it's anything that is even remotely influenced by Norwegian/Swedish bands. It's not very good term to describe anything and I always regarded it more of a mockery. Like this interview of the Barbarian Wrath guy proves it: https://www.metal-rules.com/interviews/BW-WB.htm
