    Right, dude, right. Steven Wilson hears a creative style of music like prog and says "how can I make this into the kind of music that soccer moms want to hear in their minivans?"

    There is close, and there is absolutely zero.

    Thanks for the Hideous Divinity rec though, liking it so far.

    Devy puts one of the best live shows I've ever seen. He's charismatic, energetic, and that makes the music that much more enjoyable when the band plays.

    I will never buy a Devy album, however. Just not that interesting on its own. Juular is a cool song.

    I saw SYL at a major festival. Not a good enough taste of his normal shows I suppose, only 30 minute set in broad daylight in a stadium. Seemed fine though.

    I said close because i'm not entirely sure if there is NONE, but as far as I know its almost impossible to have a basement here, because of the water level or something.

    Katharsis is overrated (note: this evaluation based solely on Fourth Reich). Good, but far from a shining beacon of light in a dark world of shitty black metal. Same goes for Sargeist and Behexen.

    Katharsis is certainly not a shining beacon, but I find most of Fourth Reich to be pretty damn exceptional by the standards we have today. Possibly a top 15 or 20 black metal release of the decade for me, though probably not top 10.

    As I was reading on the rhinocervs website, apparently they're no better than crepsculo Negro. Multiple posters there are calling the label a rip off...

    I dont think he is in anyway a ¨god of metal¨ but I do think he is an innovative genius in his own right.

    Oh no you di´ent... Ima let that one slide dispite being a fanboy, because of all the good recomendations you have given me lately.

    Sargeist is definitely nothing worth noting, though still a good listen occasionally.

    Behexen's "My Soul For His Glory" was one of the best black metal releases in the last few years, easily.

    Katharsis is not over rated by any means, but are definitely an amazing band overall. With any album.

    Also, everything I said regarding California black metal bands made no sense.

    As poor as their reputation might be, Crepusculo Negro's was far worse.

    The Fourth Reich is good, but VVorld VVithout End is their best easily.

    Sargeist gives me a huge black metal boner.

    Also, I like Dark Funeral.

    Disagree.. 666 then VVorld VVithout End, then 4th Reich, then Kruzifixxion.


    I remember when Let the Devil In came out, it seemed as if everyone on this board was fapping hardcore over Sargeist.....Including you...?:confused:

    I liked them when I first got into black metal....My balls were just starting to get hair on them and frankly didnt know any better...Now, they are just a fucking joke to me lol

    Admittedly I only know the one album, Diabolis Interium. Love that thing.

    Dordedoh's "Dar De Duh" is the most overrated album of 2012. The band takes a whole lot of time to accomplish very little. And those chanting parts on the opening track soun like they were taken from some Eastern European male cheerleading competition.

    Agree. I like Vobiscum Satanas and Secrets of the Black Arts as well. One of those bands I grew up with.

    Its very underwhelming to me. Its stuff I should love but it just doesnt click. I enjoy the later Negura Bunget way more than Dar De Duh.

    I enjoy the album, however it is far from as mindblowing as many stated.
