In recent black metal news, though, I hear the new Darkthrone is kind of poo poo. I haven't heard anything since The Cult Is Alive, and I liked that. Anybody heard the new one?

whoever your source is, punch him in the face

then buy the new darkthrone album

in that order

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.

Why does nobody like the newer Gorgoroth albums? They're awesome as far as I'm concerned, they're just not as easy listening as the earlier output.

Question:

What are some criteria that one might use to judge whether a black metal album is good or bad?

It varies a lot from one band to the next. In the case of Gorgoroth, they have a neoclassical thing going on, it's mostly expressive. Listening to a Gorgoroth album, to me, is an emotional journey, and I rate it on how it moves me. The newer albums have great atmosphere, and they never sacrifice the mood/story/concept/whatever to just insert riffs for the sake of being catchy, which they did on some of their earlier stuff.

Edit: in the case of say, Old Man's Child, the entire idea of the music is just to be catchy, so I'd rate it like that. With something like early Satyricon, I'd rate it on both these scales at once.

okay i am trying to track down a band:

there was a short lived thread or subtopic in a thread or something about beloved black metal vocalists, and someone linked a black metal band, french i think? That had absolutely inhuman and awesome shrieking. I recall looking at wikipedia at the time and it said they started out as a NSBM band and moved away from it later, and it may have been a one man project but I'm not sure. The album cover in the youtube track reminded me of black and white plague etchings.

edit: Found it. It was Peste Noire.

On the Satyricon DVD Frost struck me as less-than-sane. I love his work and everything, but he's definitely a weird one.

so i just saw satyricon.

Honestly, it was still a good show, their Volcano stuff onward sounds way better live than on an album, and it was fuckloads of fun. I just wish I'd gone in not expecting to hear early stuff.

Well, I love the heck out of the new Immortal, so you can all eat my butt. It's definitely no Sons of Northern Darkness though, it strikes me as another At the Heart of Winter, stylistically.

But then, Laveyan Satanism is just kind of a more retarded Ayn Rand so it's all equally bad

Hipsters are all "I enjoy Deafheaven, therefore it's not black metal, it's part of some new different thing, I'm too cool to listen to dorky metal stuff, it's ambient-post-blackgaze or something. This is incredible and revolutionary and bears no resemblance to that lowly black metal plebeian music of old" while metalheads are all "other people enjoy Deafheaven, therefore it's not black metal, it is white metal for the casual poser. I will constantly redefine the boundaries of anything I like to exclude people who have girlfriends"

I don't like Deafheaven's music because I dislike the aesthetic but man, they've really managed to upset a lot of nerds and I respect that

Maybe he's trying to position himself in people's minds as the true continuation of Immortal, especially if his new music turns out to be better than Immortal's. He would probably get good publicity out of that paint style since he is in hundreds of memes and stuff, he's very recognizable even outside metal circles.
