I got back from seeing Wolves In The Throne Room last night; what an AMAZING gig. Team effort review here.

It was beautiful. I nearly cried.

Wow, I just checked them out on a whim due to their awesome name, and I'm loving it. Two Hunters is an awesome album so far.

Or the fact that the only two genres left that are unlistenable to most people are noise and black metal, and black metal is easier to stomach.

But saying you listen to Merzbow makes you sound soooo much cooler than saying you listen to Bathory or something.

What the gently caress are you talking about? Who's saying this? (and so help me if you say "hipsters" I'm going to wash your mouth out with soap)
Well, I'll skirt around the word then. I know a number of people that would, for instance, buy band t-shirts of bands they don't even really listen to, own CDs that they've never listened to, etc., just because of the name. The person I quoted was mentioning two genres of music that were "unlistenable" - those same types of kids I just mentioned would say they listen to these "unlistenable" bands/artists to seem, I don't know, like they have some sort of deep appreciation for this incredibly niche genre. It's the same reason they buy band t-shirts or CDs of bands they hardly even like, it puts them on some higher level with their peers. The same reason people say "yeah, well, I listened to them before they got big" - it's all street credit.

I'm not endorsing it, I was just making a tongue-in-cheek response based on people I'm acquainted with in my city. I assume there are the same type of people all over the US.

It's an awesome album cover, at least. i loved everything up to and including Now, Diabolical, but the My Skin is Cold EP was really boring.

I haven't read the black metal threads in a while, but I must be the only person that liked My Skin is Cold. It's the first thing I've really liked from them since Nemesis Divina, even if it is 100% different.

Also, I heard Nachtmystium for the first time on GBSFM tonight and liked it a lot. Where's the best place to start with them?

I've never had any interest in black metal, until I heard Dimmu Borgir's "The Sacrilegious Scorn." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9cqKafnUrk

I usually listen to IDM, ambient, and dubstep, so this is kind of a new thing for me, but goddamn that is a song. The bassist's vocals really help to balance things out.

Yeah, ICS Vortex has some awesome pipes on him. He also sang for Borknagar (on the album Quintessence) and Arcturus (everything after like 2003), so maybe you'd like those?

Borknagar - Colossus - Bad sound quality, but you get the idea. A lot more folky than Dimmu Borgir, but still rad, in my opinion. A lot of their stuff is closer to black metal than this.

Arcturus - Hufsa - Again, kinda folky metal, way more avant garde, not really black metal at all. But, it's got Vortex on vocals so hey

VVV I'm just throwing out stuff since he liked Vortex's vocals. I don't want to go on record as saying that either of these are good examples of black metal or are even good examples of the bands themselves. I don't even like Arcturus at all.

"Brutal" better describes death metal rather than black, i.e. Blood Red Throne is brutal death metal, and old Amorphis is death/doom or melodic death. Borknagar, in my mind, is progressive black.

I'm currently recording a new album for my black metal project. There isn't many good black metal here in Russia, but I'm hoping my music can stand up. Thanks to the OP I'll probably post it here when it's finished.

Mudflap McDirt posted:

Only for you, I am now writing a song about this very subject. It will be dedicated to all goons.

So, with that, I wrote and recorded a song about Baba Yaga.




Ensrug - "Vuki ot lesa" (Wolves from the Woods)

Ensrug on Myspace

I think you can download from Tindeck... have the mp3, enjoy it, it's for you goons anyway, no one else.

Like I said, I am working on a full length recording now (and I think the songs are higher quality than this one - I spent maybe a day on Vuki ot lesa), which I will probably leak via SA when it's done. This song was mostly for me to learn digital recording techniques, since I am completely used to analog machines. Ensrug has been around for a while, but I am just now introducing it to the internet.

Enjoy the metal.

I bought it on vinyl recently, and some of the inner artwork has some weird fairy poo poo going on. I love WITTR, but I must make sure it isn't a black cascade of fairies and unicorns and such.

I wouldn't commit such a heinous act if I hadn't dug deep everywhere to find no results. Asking here seems like a better idea than some lovely metal forum.

Their imagery, album art, lyrics, persona, ideologies, everything - are related in some part to the forest, to old pagan druidic philosophies, that sort of thing. They could very well be singing about fairies.

That said, I think I need to go back and listen to Malevolent Grain a few times. It's so relaxing.

Well, maybe not essential, but some of my favorites this year:

Gorgoroth - Quantos Possunt Ad Satanitatem Trahunt
Skeletonwitch - Breathing the Fire
Belphegor - Walpurgis Rites- Hexenwahn
Marduk - Wormwood
*Nazxul - Iconoclast
*Drudkh - Microcosmos
Anaal Nathrakh - In The Constellation Of The Black Widow
Goatwhore - Carving Out The Eyes Of God
Old Man's Child - Slaves Of The World
*Oranssi Pazuzu - Muukalainen Puhuu
Wolves In The Throne Room - Black Cascade
Wolves In The Throne Room - Malevolent Grain
*Blut Aus Nord - Memoria Vetusta II - Dialogue With The Stars
Vreid - Milorg

That should keep you pretty busy for a while. The four with stars beside them I would consider essential for the year because they're so damned good.
