Black Metal
« on: August 09, 2011, 02:22:45 AM »
Okay so I just learned that Wolves in the Throne Room are gonna play in my town on September 8Th and got really excited about that. So my point being : Any fan of that band and/or any other black metal band? Whats your favorite band in this particular metallic area?

Myself : Darkthrone, Wolves in the throne Room, Deafheaven (not a favorite but a good one that I just discovered) and another one that I wont named ;)

i am also starting this thread so that I can find other good black metal band from you guys maybe?

Enjoy the thread!

The closest thing to black metal that I've ever liked were the Mercyful Fate's first two albums, "Melissa" and "Don't Break the Oath" :serpico:
And perhaps the early Celtic Frost, before their disastrous attempt at "glam metal" with their 1988 album "Cold Lake"

Fairly big Blackmetal fan here, but Deathmetal reigns supreme! I love the classics and a few albums here and there. Select albums from bands like Primordial, Thorns, Emperor, Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon, Immortal, Blut Aus Nord, Deathspell Omega, The Shining, Darkthrone, Summoning, Bathory, Dark Funeral, Dissection, Ulver, Rotting Christ and so forth. There's just too many to list.
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

I'm not sure how the album was perceived by the metal community because I'm really out of the loop and not involved in it, but I thought that 2006's Monotheist was damn good.

I dabble in the genre here and there, but I'm much more interested in post-metal/crust. Wolves In The Throne Room seems to touch base with that crowd a lot more, as far as I can tell. I know a lot more crusties into that band than black metal dudes.
"If I could strike one blow to spite their force, though I might bear one hundred more, I would wear the welts like rubies, and the shackles for a crown. And if I had one hundred hearts I would throw them all before their bullets before I'd sell a single one to wield their power. So lest we fall out of love with life, let us give all we have to give - for only a fool would cling to this world."

So true my friend. I myself am more a fan of screamo and sludge. a bit of crust here and there. I find Wolves In The Throneroom  to be a mix of screamo and black metal imo. A bit like Deafheaven on deathwish records. I,m still glad to go to the show though!
