  • Black metal appreciation thread 2

    Okay, since the other one got closed, I am going to go ahead and create a new "official" black metal appreciation thread. No politics. That's what got the other one closed.

    I still really wish the old one was open.

      The length of the last track is pretty fucking cool. 13 minutes and 49 seconds. I am listening to the album right now.

        An essential in my opinion.

          It was alright. More aggressive, straightforward black metal, as opposed to the rawer, more atmospheric kind.

            A much better album than the 1349 one I mentioned.

              Didn't listen to the last track...
              I was starting to get tired. I'm going through a few tracks from the album right now, not bad at all.

                  !!!!!! That is funny, Iron Wizard is talking to himself.

                    Talking to anyone who might be reading, not myself.

                      Maybe so, but the edit post function as well as that one that apparently adds a second post to the bottom of one already there (that I've never been able to work out how to use) are there for a reason. It just occasionally looks like you're spamming when you reply to your own posts so frequently.

                      More towards the subject, I have been enjoying some Faustcoven lately. Kind of straddles the line somewhere between first wave (I'm not getting into classifications)-influenced doom, but it's done well.

                        Is Faustcoven anything like Woods of Ypres? Woods of Ypres is the only black/doom band I have listened to. I like them. They aren't as black metal as they used to be, but it's definitely still there, it's just covered up with a lot of doom metal and gothic metal. I am not too in to fusion genres, mainly because I am obsessive-compulsive about labels, and everything has to be "one or the other" in my mind. Behemoth (sometimes considered blackened death metal) is a very good band, though. I personally consider them black metal. Other than downtuned riffs and growled vocals, I really don't see much in common with death metal.

                          They're not so similar to Woods of Ypres. Think more of a slightly blackened (these days) doom band with a lot of influence from traditional metal. I'm not going to get into the whole 'are they rock or metal' thing here, but some of their most notable influences (to me) are Black Sabbath, and Angel Witch.

                            Both of those are heavy metal bands...
