Possessed's Seven Churches is great, haven't heard the one you mention.
Early Celtic Frost [Morbid Tales, To Mega Therion, plus EP's from the same period] is classic, but a lot of people wouldn't agree that they're black metal. Personally I put them on the cusp of black metal and death metal.
Also Morbid Angel are one of the best metal bands ever, period, in my opinion, but they are squarely death metal. I know a lot of these sub-categorizations suck and are confusing - and a lot of metalheads don't even agree - but most fans would say that it takes more than being a bit 'satanic' thematically to be a black metal band. It's also in the sound and style. That's why Deicide are accepted as a death metal band and not a black metal band, and why Slayer are a borderline thrash/death metal band and not a black metal band.
