Just heard some of the new Burzum on radio. Holy poo poo how boring. I don't know if it's because I wasn't zoning into it like I sometimes do but man that was snoozeworthy.

edit: I mean it sounded like Burzum from the instant it started playing, but goddang.

Listen to it with a nice pair of headphones before going to bed. You'll pick up on a lot of good vibes, especially for ambient works. But I thought it was actually really good. It's kind of hard to top Filosofem (personal favorite) or his other earlier works, but I really enjoyed it.

I can't get into any other black metal bands than Peste Noire and Burzum. And what is with the bad synth stuff on the Windir albums? Maybe I should stop looking for more.

Check out Mortifera, both pretty similar. I'm seeing Alcest in NYC in April, check that guy out too, some good poo poo right there.

I humbly present for your enjoyment, a blackened song of loss and solemnity,



Ensrug - "Ghost of Verdance"

Is Ceremonial Castings worth checking into? My friend played a few tracks for me while on a drive and they sound pretty promising. Their albums seem highly appraised according to reviews but was just curious if anyone had any insight or just a good general starting point.

Yeah I think Emperor nailed the "just the right amount of Symphonic elements in black metal" and that's why they own. Plus I think Ihsahn had one of the most badass vocals in black metal but a lot of people don't think so.

This extremely cold week we've been having in New England has really rekindled my love for black metal. I popped in "Filosfem" and it felt just right.

I was listening to The Swan Road by Drudkh a few days ago while driving at night through some mountains and I was lost in a realm of overwhelming beauty, I felt like I was in a poem or some poo poo man it was awesome.

I could listen to Foulest Semen of a Sheltered Elite for months on end, easily one of my favorite black metal albums. Choirs and doom makes for an incredible atmosphere.


Apparently he gathered some session musicians up because he played at Roadburn this year. Little skeptical how it would turn out live at first but listening to it they pulled it off very well indeed. Blood Vaults is gonna kick my rear end.

Cross posting from the Metal thread but the new Shining 8 ½ - Feberdrömmar i vaket tillstånd, is turning out to be a pretty crazy release. Each of the songs are sung by a different front man. Gaahl, Famine, Maniac, and Atilla, each take a song and they are all awesome. It is a lot more raw and dirtier than their previous but I am liking it so far, defiantly buying this poo poo for sure.


Edit-Attila is the loving man

Im sure most people hear have seen it but there is a documentary on Youtube called One Man Metal. It follows the guys the from Xasthur, Striborg. and Leviathan.

It is a good combination of depression, rage, and awkward hilarity.

That makes sense.

I think it was just jarring to have these really up-front no-frills interviews with Whitehead/Connor, and then a goofy full-makeup-and-cape interview with Sin Nanna. I definitely like his take on black metal being an expression of nature and not necessarily full of hatred and loneliness all the time.

Actually, I just need to watch the documentary again. Are there any other "good" black metal documentaries on Youtube? There are lots, but most are just a mess.

Until the Light Takes Us is the only one worth watching in my opinion. The others are just awkward interviews that aren't done very well.

I remember enjoying that doc the first time I saw it, but after rewatching it a couple of weeks ago I don't know why I did (like it the first time, that is). The underlying idea is worth exploring (how black metal went from subversive art form to mundane trend), but the filmmakers never go below the surface and prefer to go over the whole arson & murder angle. They also waste a lot of time with pointless fait divers, like the Darkthrone dude talking to someone on the phone, Frost busy being Frost and Garm's 45 seconds of being a massive douche.

Said angle does have its appeal, of course, it's the reason why black metal went from underground movement to media phenomenon in the early 90s, but personally can't say I'm really interested in it anymore and would much rather see some focus on the music and how the whole scene evolved for the past 25 years.

Yeah I hear you. Part of the reason I probably like it so much is because the other documentaries out there are pretty bad. Vice did one about like 5 years ago or something and the whole thing was pretty much them and Gaahl hiking up a mountain and getting wasted. Another one the quality was so bad I couldn't really enjoy it.

Until the Light Takes Us was OK, but as Cool Corn pointed out, it's yet another take on the Norwegian second wave black metal scene, which is one of the most well-known and well-covered parts of black metal. While the Vice One Man Metal documentary isn't fantastic, it at least offers a look at a different approach to black metal. Personally, I'd love a documentary on the French scene (LLN or their successors), because French black metal is some of the best that's come out recently and is relatively under explored. The Black Twilight Circle might also make an interesting subject.

Yeah I always preferred French black metal to most of the Norwegian ones. Like Blut Aus Nord and Deathspell Omega on Camera would be amazing. They make some really chaotic poo poo.

The Norwegian scene is really hit or miss for me. I never got into Mayhem. I understand they were influential in the scene and all but the only album I really enjoyed was their first one and that Deathcrush ep or whatever. Same with Gorgoroth and Immortal. Darkthrone and Empeor just put out way better music imo. Enslaved would probably take the cake if I had to pick a favorite though.
