    Yeah there's two ways to look at it. Phase 1 is the Darkthrone worship material, SMRC is the transition album, and then Kenose onward is the technical era. Or you can read SMRC as the pinnacle of Phase 1. I'm fine with either reading, but I don't consider anything off the first two albums to be so exceptional that I would recommend it. I consider it enjoyable boilerplate black metal.

    Agreed. Everything that comes before and after that riff is divine, but that riff is a little off-putting and telegraphed.

    Disagree here. Miko is arguably the best vocalist in the genre and his performance on Paracletus is quite dynamic and does a great job of coloring the compositions.

    Not much to go off of, but Aosoth has a new album in the works. I loved Arrow in the Heart and look forward to what they come up with next.

    Yeah, I'm not expecting many people to agree. I just don't think he delivers on an emotional level what parts of Carnal Malefactor (and other songs) demand. I don't feel the passion unlike say Varg on Hvis Lyset Tar Oss.

    I don't really mind the vocals while listening to DsO. Btw, is Inquisitors of Satan worth listening?

    If you have any interest in bands like Horna and Sargeist you should listen to it.


    New Hail Spirit Noir is cool. Didn't grab me as hard as Oi Magoi but I've been doing other shit at the same time and missed a few bits.

    Bit of a lull, albeit an enjoyable one, in the middle of the new Urfaust but tracks II,V and VI are great.

    V is unavailable on Spotify, so I'll just leave this here:

    It's a B/B+ album. Solid from start to finish, but pretty boilerplate second-wave worship and short on standout tracks. "Succubus of All Vices" is the only track that really resonates.

    Well Varg's performance on the first three Burzum albums is arguably the epoch of black metal vocals, so that's a tough comp.

    I'd also point out that DSO's probably shouldn't be as passionate as Burzum's just based on what they are trying to achieve. Burzum is very primal and visceral music, while DSO is much more grandiose, abstract, and metaphysical in nature. The pure unbridled emotion of Varg's vocals would fit poorly into a project like DSO.

    SMRC is very emotionally charged but i also think his vocals are perfect for it so w/e

    I just listened to Chaining the Katechon and I'm thinking it's one of the best releases DsO has. It gets right to the point and maintains its assault for the 22 minute running time.

    Wow, it's been a while. I'm sure no one hee is gonna remember me haha.

    Been stuck on the Deathspell Omega. It's album of the year for me. Just incredible.

    Also stuck on Leviathan's Verrater album. I know it's a compliation but it's great!

    I posted this on facebook a couple days ago and my 80 year old grandma liked it. I mean, I guess she's got okay music taste in Celtic Thunder she's always jamming and liked Wardruna oddly enough, but I think Urfaust is a stretch...

    Saturday I am gathering with some accomplices to listen to BM. Each time it's a new theme and we may only listen to bands with specific prerequisites which fit this theme. On Saturday it's bands with current or former members who have died (for various reasons) or killed another person. Live and session musicians count. Please give me some inspiration on what to play apart for alle the obvious (Norwegian) bands.

    Yes, Norwegian, but you gotta go with Windir's 1184

    Mystic Forest (Stefan Kozak, R.I.P. 2015, suicide by train) - see also Eikenskaden
    Endless Dismal Moan (Takuya Tsutsui a.k.a. Chaos 9, R.I.P. 2008, suicide by gunshot)

    In both cases they were the core member of their respective band.

    Endless Dismal Moan is fucked. The first two self titled demos (or the full length comp depending on how you look at it) are completely unique and twisted black metal unlike anything I've ever heard. (And if you've heard something similar please do share)

    Love it. The most inconsistent genre in Extreme Metal but also one of the most compelling and definitely the most disturbing.
