- "Quintessence" from Panzerfaust, particularly the lumbering, funereal guitar riff.
- Transilvanian Hunger as a whole is considered one of the greatest albums in Black metal history, often considered a contender to another known black metal band.
- A Blaze in the Northern Sky is partially responsible for creating the Black Metal sound and showed the band transitioning into pure black metal from their death metal beginnings.
- The triplet-based riff from "Command" on Plaguewielder. Leave it to Darkthrone to incorporate a pinch of a major key in the riff and still have it come across as densely grim as one would expect from this period in their discography.
