As for me best Black Metal band is BURZUM.
I'm looking at the result of voting and i'm just curious why Borknagar has second position (after Emperor) when there are bands like Satyricon or Mayhem. Ok, i also love Borknagar (it's the best of the mentioned bands for me, maybe it can be equal only with EmpEroR) but when the question is: your favorite BLACK METAL band is...? i choose one of the BLACK METAL bands.
Ok, the point should be not why someone vote for Borki but why someone put Borki in BLACK METAL.
I feel that borkies first album is black metal....deal with it.
I don't feel Olden Domain 's black metal. But if you add it in a list, I vote for them because Borknagar rules
Anyone who knows Deviser????
"Olden Domain" is second album, Lord Hypnos spoken about debut album "Borknagar"...
You are right, but I believe 'Borknagar' has been sold out since... well a long time ago... twas more of a collectors item I believe. Forgive me if I'm wrong
i don't think so. first edition by Malicious has been sold out indeed, but second by Century Media?
I don't know... I haven't been able to find it yet. But i believe you're rite about Century Media's re-release. Still can't find it though
ask your local store (cd shop) to order it, it should not be a problem...
Last time i ordered borknagar cd it took three months... I'm not exaggerating (ow... I don;t think that was spelled correctly...)
I voted for the almighty EMPEROR! Second place would be a hard choice between Immortal and Dark Funeral (if it were on the list)
I don't think Borknagar falls under any specific category and that's why they're so kick ass. They're not limited to what they do, and as long as they keep sounding great then keep breaking down those boundaries I say! Not many bands can pull this off without being labeled as "sell outs". Borknagar can and are that damn good.
I voted Immortal, simply because they rule all.
Though I guess I don't really consider them black metal these days (hell, neither really is Borknagar come to think of it). I think my favorite "tr00" BM bands are unknowns like Bloodthorn and Noctes.
nowadays Bloodthorn plays death metal and i don't call their 2 first albums black metal. there is something resembling to bm, but inexactly
You think so? They may be a fringe band, and rather ambient/atmospheric at times, but Bloodthorn is most definitely a BM band. Even their newest album - "Onwards Into Battle" - is pretty blackish. Their lyrics are, their 'demeanor' are, what more do they need to do?
"Onwards Into Battle" was their previous album! one year ago they released album called "Under The Reign Of Terror" via Red Stream records. this album is totally dissimilar to "In the shadow..." and "Onwards...". it's brutal death metal... i was shocked when bought "Under..."
My bad, I had 'em backwards...I just ordered "Under the Reign..." and haven't heard it yet. When you say 'brutal,' just HOW brutal do you mean....? Not that that's a bad thing, mind you.
hard to say, because they still had own style, but i think Aeternus' styl is close, but much faster. btw: they covered Mayhem's "Deathcrush" with Necrobutcher on bass.
whoever voted for abigor gets a big kiss from me!
fortunately, i don't like Abigor
I thought more highly of Borknagar's first album than The Shadowthrone. But it suprise's me that no one voted Satyricon yet. If the vynal wasn't so thick I don't think I'd have any grooves left in it.
I think black metal was redefined so many times that it's almost impossible to tag label's at all. But lest we listen to bands like Venom, Bathory, Hellhammer/Celtic Frost and associated bands an era start's. Now at the Ragnorok of blackmetal, too many arguement's over who's what, who cares?
It does make a wonderful conflict though.
Black Metal Is Dead!!!!!!
And then Borknagar came.
