    I started with black metal back in 1995. Originally I came to it via doom and death metal, the likes of Paradise Lost, Enchantment, Deicide, Morbid Angel, I think the first black metal I heard was Cradle of Filth's 'Principle of Evil Made Flesh'. Some would argue it's not "true" black metal, but when I was 13 it was amazing - and it still is. I love that album, some 25 years later. That was right around the time of the second wave of BM, when the church burnings were happening, which we found out about from Kerrang!, so we began to get into the Norwegian (and Swedish) stuff like Mayhem, Darkthrone, Burzum, Immortal, Gorgoroth, Enslaved, Bathory, Dimmu Borgir, Opeth, Satyricon, Emperor, Marduk, Dark Funeral, Lord Belial, Gehenna, etc.

    My first BM gig was Cradle of Filth, with Gorgoroth and Primordial, in London in Dec 1995 - that was the gig Pest chopped up/tossed out a pigs head in the crowd during their set, and we met CoF after the gig and got our tickets signed. Saw them a bunch of times after that, along with a bunch of other bands listed above. I only ever saw Emperor once, in 1997, and Mayhem once (also in 97). I would love to see Emperor again - 'Nightside' is one of my favourite albums ever.

    I stepped away from the BM scene for a long time - we were really into it as young teens, as many scene kids are/were, but grew out of it and went on to explore/rediscover other music. Started getting back into it a few years back, although I kept regular listens to a bunch of select albums (CoF's first three releases, Emperor's first two, Dimmu Borgir's 'Enthrone Darkness Triumphant' and the first two Hecate Enthroned releases especially). I've long been a fan of doom metal, and began to looking into the DSBM stuff like None, having been into Burzum back in the day (although we didn't know back then that Burzum was pretty much the originator of DSBM)

    I'm not so much into the "classic" (or traditional, perhaps) BM like Darkthrone, Mayhem, etc, these days, but more so the gothic, atmospheric, symphonic stuff. It's weird, I like both the grandeur as well as the minimalistic stuff. I've recently started getting into Funeral Death Metal, and I love the slower, bleaker pace, huge audio landscapes. Hence the DSBM I suppose.

    COF has been pretty solid for the last 6-7 years at least.

    Could have been incorrectly tagged mp3s?

    I revisited the Omhulda album by Grav two days back when adding some older albums on my phone and god it hits hard. It's that sort of misantrophic melancholy that I needed - I remembered the riffs so well too. It doesn't contain the frostbitten heavily distorted guitars that northern black metal bands are famous for, in fact, most of the times the guitars lack distortion completely. There's simple minor chord progressions relying on embellishments.

    It's a perfect soundtrack for this failed winter. I haven't seen real winter here for ages, fuck.

    Anyone heard their new one? Apparently they have something new.

    Ok I just finished listening to the new Nyogthaeblisz and I consider that alone an achievment. It's downright unpleasant. I can cope with all kinds of noise and kvlt fago black metals but here they added this high pitched whistling noise inbetween all the songs and it drives me crazy. Terroristic onslaught on your ears, sure, but I won't listen to this again.

    Isn't it weird that people call Summoning a BM band?

    That's because their first album was... and they've retained elements.

    The Far Away From the Sun lineup of Sacramentum is touring the Deathfests playing that album in its entirety and is supposedly set to record a new album this year. If it is the worthy successor that FAFtS never got, it will pretty much make my year musically speaking. Your mileage may, of course, vary.
