Metal: A Headbanger's Journey

Recommended Posts

If you want to talk to a prominent figure in Norse Black Metal, stay out of England. Go straight to the source and talk to either Galder, Erkkekjetter Silenoz, or Ihsahn. THEY are the forefront of black metal, and for a reason. You can't mention Norway without Old Man's Child, Dimmu Borgir, or Emperor coming into the conversation. I know Galder of Old Man's Child and Shagrath, Silenoz, and Vortex of Dimmu - they are easy to talk to and would easily talk about the "scene" to anyone who asks.

Except that, you know, Dimmu Borgir haven't made a proper black metal album either since God knows how long. Their orchestrated, forcefully "epic" albums have strayed almost as far away from original BM as Cradle Of Filth's filthy goth cock rock. Not to say that they don't have their albums: but they're a few and far between.

I'll agree that Macabre is more grind, but the Murder Music album has some BM on it. As far as Origin goes, I can't call them anything but black metal. They are too technical for Grind, not gore-oriented enough for death, not prog...you get my point.

In all honesty, I am the black-metal enthusiast room mate of the user who I am masquerading as. I will potentially create my own account here in the next day or so though, and will post in this thread when I do.

One question though: what is your take on Zyklon/Thou Shalt Suffer as far as BM goes? (or have you even heard them yet? not to question your ability with Metal, just I only recently heard of both bands)

Haven't listened to Thou Shalt Suffer so I wouldn't know. Zyklon is very talented death metal and I'm actually surprised how well Ishahn suits the genre. Definitively a band worthy of praise and attention.

Man, what's up with all the Dani Filth hate? It's not like the guy ever claimed to be Black Metal. In fact, he always states that they aren't... so what's up with all the animosity towards Cradle in reference to them not being part of the genre?

Oh, and I know this has gone a bit Black Metal orientated, but 'Kill Your Mother, Rape Your Dog' by Cannibal Corpse is the greatest song ever. I mean, what other metal bands have been in an Ace Ventura film?

I have no earthen idea where you got a song like that from, as "Kill Your Mother, Rape Your Dog" is a song by Dying Fetus and to my knowledge Cannibal Corpse have never even made a cover of it. If you're talking about the Corpse track that is in the first Ace Ventura movie, it's called "Hammer Smashed Face".

And yes, it is class (Y)
