Indeed! I'm gay and thinks it tops even the title track.
By a long-shot, actually. I actually like Blodhemn better than VV/HL.
Nah, VV/HL was the best thing they ever did. Frost was pretty cool too.
found a dl link, will do
I just kind of discovered Blut aus Nord's Memoria Vetusta 1.
I bought it like a year ago and first discarded it because i thought that it is a blatant Ripoff of early Enslaved.
Now i am thinking that it is nevertheless some of the most beautifull music i have listened too. The melodies and riffs are so evocative and hypnotic and the atmospheres so immersive that i can look over the rather lacking originality.
I still wonder how nobody in the reviews i read ever noticed this and how some even explicitly praise the originality of the album.
Vikingligr Veldi is far FAR FAR more engaging and immersing an album than In The Nightside Eclipse.
Vikingligr Veldi is kind of a sleeper hit BM album, not too many people think of it when thinking of classic 2nd-wave black metal records I guess...anyway, awesome album. Part 2 should be good.
On the topic of Enslaved, how's Mardraum?
still never managed to get into vikingligr veldi at all. nightside i quite like but it's still horribly produced. transilvanian hunger rules but it's only my third favourite darkthrone.
I love it. Keep in mind, however, that it's not typical black metal by any means, if it's even black metal at all. They employ a lot of death metal, and there's also something resembling a psychedelic influence on certain tracks, not unlike what Nachtmystium did on Instinict: Decay. It's cinematic as fuck, though, and it's also probably my favorite Enslaved album. Highest possible recommendation.
EDIT: The best Darkthrone, by the way, is Under A Funeral Moon by a long shot, with A Blaze in the Northern Sky as a very close second.
this is contradictory as fuck but i'll run with it, or at least the part about UAFM being the best darkthrone
Wold - Screech Owl
Black Metal/Harsh Noise
The Enslaved I'll probably get first is Eld. I really like the title track off of it. Now I'm listening to Vikingligr Veldi on Itunes, it
s very good so far, very varied, I dont own the VV CD yet though, ohiogrinder sent it to me via AIM a couple months ago.
Yeah, you're right, I guess I didn't read that before I finalized it.
Excellent. It's on my list.
Anybody got any good black metal recommendations other than the known essentials?
We have an entire recommendations board for inquiries like that...
Eld is a great album, the first track is very long, progressive, epic and atmospheric, one of my favorite song from them. I would get the album just for that song.
new Krieg track uploaded..... nothing really new I must admit, sounds like Darkthrone worship.
I would rather have some new N.I.L. material, but this isn't all that far off.
For some reason I do not listen to Krieg very often, but when I do they are pretty enjoyable.
