What's with black metal ?

Recommended Posts

i didn´t know about that movie, looks interesting. i had my own metal-radioshow in the early nineties in hamburg, germany and euronymous (the guy who was murdered by vikernes) and vikernes were penpals of me. i still have all the letters. was a funny time. a friend of mine who is running a small record label was also euronymous´ penpal at that time, and he knows two more people who were writing letters with him. having millions of penpals is sooooo totally evil eh? :spiteful:

i love black metal. some of it is like breakcore, you love it or hate it. and most of it has a serious tongue in cheek side. it's not worth arguing about, but black metal is awesome.

black metal is great. especially early ulver, striborg, nazxul, and some burzum. i also really like amesoeurs, even though they aren't exactly pure black metal because they mix it with indie/shoegaze, a really awesome combination!

 

i'm also working very slowly on my own black metal project. sounding quite interesting so far! though i don't think i'll ever do the corpse paint thing haha.

yeah some people in scandinavia take this shit really serious, but most people know it's all about getting drunk and laid and playing dress up and being awesome.

 

the main reason for all the dress up is cause girls find it fucking hot and will sleep with you

Don't mind the music (when i'm thrashing out) but totally avoid the women who are into this scene. Just all the piercings and that kinda stuff, you often see pretty girls who have pierced themselves crazy. They are so heavy into the scene.

As with black metal I might like, it's fine until the bloke starts croaking. The music is epic but I can't take the vocals seriously at all. But that's just me.

 

I really dig Darkthrone, and I like these vocals over the cleaner, theatrical stuff by black metal bands now. The early lo-fi releases of the scene are so much better.

 

Darkthrone is also awesome because both members are otherwise normal blokes. They have a sense of humor outside of their music, and their music is arguably darker than most of their peers.

Yes, Darkthrone is the best to come out of the whole black metal movement. I used to follow alot of black metal religiously, but nowadays it's only Darkthrone, old Bathory and some more obscure stuff. Also Ulver, seeing them live next month!

 

Darkthrone's myspace is also a favorite site of mine since the 'band of the week thing' started. Always some pure raw music, and Fenriz' compilation albums always have a few new bands I dig. I also emailed briefly with fenriz (also a big electronic fan) nice guy with heart for real music instead of scene and image. More bands from that genre should have that attitude.

Nice, Ulver should be excellent. Some of Burzum's tracks are brilliant, though some of the purely synth made ambient stuff is absurdly repetative (I guess that's what happends when you record in jail, by youself, and you're misanthrope). Beyond that, I haven't listened to much other black metal and likely won't. I'm more into sludge, doom, post-metal, etc.

 

That's cool you talked to Fenriz, I've been meaning to check out Neptune Towers, his ambient side-project. Supposedly Nocturno Culto, Darkthrone's other member, is now a schoolteacher.

Like another poster here, I also grew up on Slayer, Pantera, Megadeth, Sepultura. I was fairly impressionable and by age 10 Gwar was my favorite band. I'm actually really glad I didn't find out much about black metal until I was older. I saw what bands like Kiss looked like and it made me curious as to what they sounded like. I was pretty let down when I heard them. Was expecting some out of this world demonic shit. Then I found Skinny Puppy and my world was complete. :)

there were some pretty "demonic" blackmetal bands though. for instance, check out most of the bands from the LLN (Les Légions Noires) collective:

good stuff is still happening, but there's just so much utter shit going on that it's easy to see the whole genre as really really bad.

Kokoon - kudos for linking Brenoritvrezorkre, one of my absolute favourites. Paysage D'Hiver is also god damn awesome.

 

There is a lot of great BM, but of course a lot of shit to wade through.

if you mean that those tracks i posted weren't *scary* enough, i can agree. they're not scary, but some of that stuff does sound very otherworldly to me.

funny things are happening too, some bands that should've stayed "underground" keep getting dug up by the likes of pitchfork &co hipster crowd, which results in heaps of their (much lesser) contemporaries. but fortunately, there are quality (and original!) bm bands, coming from all parts of the world!
