dosen't it sound majestic..
now i know many don't like Black metal, but it's simply their own loss...
translation: Black metal is a very delicate genre of metal,
delicate because it is hard and challenging to listen to,
i'm not trying to invite anyone to listen to Black Metal, it's after all a private activity, a members only activity,
you have to have a very large musical ear to be able to enjoy it, to others it's just noise..
it's a matter of ability mostly, some listeners like much simpler musical notes,
so challenge your musical ear, and find out weither you can release the rhythm within BM, or not..
and yes, there is a rhythm in Black metal, not just some satanists warming up a bit..
i'm sick and tired of these pretentious, including my own sister, and everyone else around me [yes life can be cruel]
BM music is very rhythmic by the way, and very atmospheric,
it draws pain, rage, darkness in an agressive way, in an artistic way...
it's supposed to sound agressive, because it's extremely sad and rebelious ..
it holds the underground side in all metal genres..
dark atmosphers, dark forests..
deep growlings, harsh vocals, painful screeches, completes the music, to create a world of emotions and darkness...
now for the music, i have this short playlist, if you happen to have a fragile heart, start by first to last,
the last song might scratch your soul...
P.S. this order is from relatively accessible BM music to a more underground side..
and my personal top5, almost...
5- watain - stellarvore
this is not a favorite band, but i just wanted to start off with an accessible sound,
4 - Dark Funeral - Goddess of Sodomy
the amazing Dark Funeral,
after the Obtained Enslavement's disaster... NO BM band should be trusted?
besides i learnt never to expect something good from a NEXT METAL album...
3- Gorgoroth - Carving a giant
although i always liked Dark Funeral better, but in this articale i'm more concerned with some sort of sound particularity, this is a step closer into a rawer sound of Black Metal,
2- Obtained Enslavement - Centuries of sorrow
an amazing song for an amazing band, sadly they went mad without a warning...
what can i say... that last album was a curse...
1- Darkthrone - Inn I de Dype Skogers Favn
now for the raw sound of BM,
and as you may notice, the sound is very poor in quality,
and i always loved the harsh sound quality in Darkthrone's music, it really reflects the core of the genre,
so when Nocturno Culto don't feel like collaborating with the lowest bastard in all Metal history,
i would place Taake, but, well...
yes yellow is my least favorite colour
