I think Sunbather is a great album, but I think everyone got wayyyy too ahead of themselves with how "groundbreaking" or whatever it was. It was just a good black metal album that had a gaze element to it that really clicked with people. They have style, good for them. I still don't listen to the album more than once a month.
As far as black metal, I like a lot of BM influenced music, but I really can't get into any of the old school or really "kvlt" stuff. I also get really sick of seeing people that love to use BM as a vehicle for spouting their retarded, hate filled rants. Varg Vikernes is a prick and I couldn't think of a worse person to be, arguably, the most prolific figure in the genre. It just attracts bad people.
