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.

I too thought My Skin is Cold was decent and I'm one of those people who have hated everything they've done after Rebel Extravaganza (and I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who regards that album as the best thing they've released)

What all new worth hearing has come out this year? All I've checked I think is the new mirrorthrone and Keep Of Kallesin, even though Gangrene didn't really catch me even as close to as much as Carriers of Dust, but eh.

Weltenfeind, the split between Absurd, Grand Belial's Key and Sigrblot, finally got released and it's quite good. I'm particularly impressed by Absurd's contribution - it's the best they've sounded in years.

He burned churches to the ground and killed a man. He was convicted for those crimes, sentenced to prison time, had that prison time reduced, and still he tried to escape; I don't see how there's any argument over the justification of his parole being turned down. This is pretty straight-forward.

Never try to reason with 18-year-old norsecore fanboys because they always know so much more about what happened in 1995 than you do and Varg is clearly a misunderstood genius, plus they can relate to him because living in their parents' basement is much like being sentenced to life in prison

Does anyone have any recommendations for bands with a similar sound to Carpathian Forest's early releases, like pre- Black Shining Leather?

On a related note, who the hell still buys and listens to Carpathian Forest? They turned into complete tripe after BSL and have just been going through the motions for almost a decade now. I've heard a couple of tracks from Nattefrost's solo effort and wasn't particularly surprised to discover that it sounds like leftovers from Carpathian Forest's recent albums.

It probably has Beherit or Thy Serpent on there, and they're good raw black metal.

Thy serpent were never really raw, though. Their first couple of albums were kinda girly keyboard-laden black metal and they weren't particularly good. The last EP was a good deal darker and heavier and they broke up after that one, which is a shame.

I still haven't heard any Neptune Towers. Somehow the titles "Caravans to Empire Algol" and "Transmissions From Empire Algol" (iirc) have an amazing mystical air to them. I know I was a huge geek like everyone else here but the titles have that nice air of mystery and discovery that, say, RPGs had when you were like 12.

And this is me saying this purely based on the titles without having any of the music, mind.

It's embarrassingly bad, though, much like just about every other experimental side project (or intro or interlude) by a metal musician I've heard so far. It's amazing how little ambience he has managed to pack into what's apparently supposed to be ambient music.

Deathspell Omega - Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice

The new Gorgoroth album sounds so incredibly plastic. A proper Grieghallen style production would've done wonders (are Pytten and his studio even around anymore?).

Also checked out Ov Hell. The first song is just terrible. It sounds like they snatched random riffs from Snorre Ruch's bin of things that did not turn out that good and asked someone to tap dance to them. The other song drones on and on without any points of interest until it actually gets kinda good at the end.

Remember that wearing Watain merchandise means showing your support towards a divine form of art that has been and will always be rightfully feared and hated by humanity. It is a sign of loyalty or belonging to the hungry ones, the fearless and feared, the enemies of the world as we know it. Support the War!

I also checked out Diocletian's second ep and Witchrist's most recent lp, Decimator and Beheaded Ouroborus, and I really enjoy them. I guess they are both considered blackened death metal and opening me up to exploring death metal as a genre more beyond Entombed and Repulsion.

Hey check out Seven Chalices by Teitanblood if you haven't heard it yet. It's a nice album filled with happy little moments.

It's a short read and the guy is not blabbing about the 'attitude' that BM artists should have. He does express a LOT of hatred though. I am sure that his album will be awesome.

Sorry mate, none of them are doing it for me, its a bit too punk. My favourite black metal tune so far is probably that song dunlop linked, "Jesus' Tod (cos he's got no friends)". I listened to tons of punk for years and those tunes sound like proper bog standard punk tunes with black metal screeching on top, I like it a bit faster and I especially like how repetitive and simplistic that burzum song is.

Repetition is probably the most brutal technique in music, play the most technical & heavy thing in the world and it still won't hold a candle to the same riff being played for 8 minutes solid.
