Gentlemen, the stage is yours. Discuss about anything related to the group. Favourite bands, band members, lyrical themes etc.
My favourite band is Satanic Warmaster, as you can probably see from the pictures. Finnish black metal has always had a soft spot in my heart.
Vai että tämmönen ryhmä? Well i like metal music so I might mention Cradle of Filth, as a start.
Lord Aäkon Këëtrëh, probably the best depressive ambient music I've heard.
He probably made these songs while doing drugs, since he was part of LLN, and we should know what kind of scene france has... After Lord Aäkön left LLN, he simply.. disappeared, so did the albums he made. Can't find a copy to buy from anywhere..
Thanks for the invite Galloglaich
Black Metal is not my favorite Metal genre, but I listen to quite alot of it.
Marduk are BY FAR my favorite BM band. Panzer Division Marduk is just awsome, and the latest album, Wormwood is awsome for a recent album
I have alot of respect for Quorthon and Bathory too.
The only good American BM band I know is Von, because I saw Varg wearing a t-shirt of them lol
Other than that, I mostly listen to Norwegian Black Metal. Mayhem, Immortal, Emperor, Burzum, Carpathian Forest, Gorgoroth, 1349 etc etc but there are some non-scandinavian bands that are quite good like Goatwhore, Eisregen, Behemoth, Handful of Hate etc etc
Nice group btw
It took a while to write the description of this group. ^^
I'm pretty sure if you like lots of norwegian bm bands, you surely like finnish ones too. I personally don't mind the norwegian black metal scene. Media is too much around them and it kind of ruins the "idea". I'll put here a few finnish bm songs by Horna. They sing in finnish though, so I't might be a bit hard to understand. ^^
Horna - Tappakaa Kristus = Kill Christ
Horna - Sinulle, mätänevä Jehova
Horna - Skaldiriimu
And two songs from singer of Horna, Satanic Tyrant Werwolf's one man's project Satanic Warmaster. He sings in english. ^^
Satanic Warmaster - Vampiric Tyrant
Satanic Warmaster - Carelian Satanist Madness
Satanic Warmaster might sound a bit "raw" but for me, that makes it even better. ^^ How do you like the finnish language in Horna? I think it's sound's perfectly evil and brutal. Though that might be because I speak it, so I can "fit the words in my mouth".
I just read the description of this group.. What have I done, joining this group? Btw I've listened Immortal, it hurts my ears. But Dimmu Borgir, one of the best. Is Dimmu wanna-be band or do you listen it?
Dimmu was good to 1999, then they sold out. Their music just went more into mainsteam since death kult armageddon.
I really do enjoy Satanic Warmaster's music style. The guitars are extremely well distorted, the vocals are gruesomely harsh and there is a genuinely evil sound to his music which creates a very "True Black Metal" atmosphere. My only problem with him is that he's apparently a Neo-Nazi. If you ask me, Nazism is one of the most anti-BM ideologies out there. That is why i despise NSBM. Black Metal is meant to be pro-individuality and against all forms of herd-like mentalities so claiming to be BM whilst preaching Nazism is grossly hypocritical. But either way, i still love his style. Probably one of the few good Third Wave Black Metal bands/projects out there.
I listen to mainly Scandinavian. Haven't really heard much Black Metal from elsewhere though other than obvious ones such as Celtic Frost, Behemoth and Venom (even though they're Thrash). BM is probably one of my favourite sub-genres along with Thrash and Death/Melodeath.
ISA Gunner, Satanic Warmaster hasn't been into nazism for a long, long time. Was though, and I agree with your thoughts. There might be some signs that would lead to neo-nazism, but he has stated himself that he isn't. Same goes to Burzum. Varg has pointed out that he doesn't support nazism. Did you listen Horna? How was it?
Favourite Black Metal bands: Impaled Nazarene, Bathory, Dissection, Skeletonwitch (if you want to call the BM), Immortal, Emperor, 1349 (GREATEST BM BAND EVVAAR1!!1!1!!!11111111111), Behemoth (maybe), Windir, Rotting Christ, Moonspell, Watain, Deströyer 666 and Dimmu Borgir.
Well that's about it. BM is actually the least of the metal genres I listen to.
