Did anyone mention Dødheimsgard? My favorite album, and the only album I like is Kronet til Konge, but what an album that is. It has everything you expect from a 90s Norwegian pagan black metal album: Folkloric, norse Atmosphere, beautiful melodies and amazing tortured and original vocals by Aldrahn. My favorite song:
Sadly they jumped on the industrial, avant-garde band wagon that everyone else did around the millennium, and painted their faces with blue corpse paint and abandoned the forest and folklore all together.
Aldrahn, if you read this: Shame on you

I love the Kronet til Konge album but 666 International and especially A Umbra Omega are pretty amazing although definitely pretty different from KtK. The Supervillian Outcast album never sounded that good to me though and Monumental Possession was a bit lacklustre/boring.
But yes, Aldrahn has one of the best voices in black metal. Never heard anyone else like him. His work with Zyklon-B was outstanding although more primal and frantic than with Dødheimsgard:
