Black Metal essentials?

 
  • Black Metal essentials?

    I am new to the genre and need to know the best albums and artists i should know about. the bands/albums i have listened to are:

    Satyricon The age of Nero
    Nemesis Divina
    Dark Medieval Times

    Carpatian Forest Black Shining Leather
    Other songs on here

    1349 Revalations..........


    I Really like the age of nero and black shinig leather.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • age of nero is lamer version of "Volcano" and "Now Diabolical", so try these two...

    whole early nineties norwegian scene : try first albums of Emperor, Darkthrone, Mayhem, Burzum...

    Marduk, Infernal War, Ragnarok, Thunderbolt... <- essential black METAL
    Moonblood, Nehemah, Bekhira, Satanic Warmaster...<- essential BLACK metal

    or just try random on youtube...

    Nič nie je stratené, pokial nie je stratené všetko
  • Bathory is THE bm band, first 4 are classics and you can see the evolution from the evil stuff of the mid 80s to real bm.
    If you want Norwegian go for Immortal - Pure Holocaust and Mayhem's first two.
    Try also Impaled Nazarene's discography, Sarcofago - INRI...
    Deströyer 666, Absu, Aura Noir for awesome black thrash...

  • I suppose essentials would be Darkthrone, Burzum, Mayhem, and all those already mentioned.

    Other good albums to look into are:

    Wolves in the Throne Room - Two Hunters
    Wodensthrone - Loss
    Winterfylleth - The Ghost of Heritage
    Monarque - Fier Heretique
    Ash Borer - Ash Borer
    Blut aus Nord - The Work Which Transforms God
    Bone Awl - Meaningless Leaning Mess
    Deathspell Omega - Paracletus

    Fairly pointless to get a ton of name drops from people with different tastes. Read up on the history of the genre and go from there. Theres a few decent documentaries floating around on Youtube.

  • Yes, do that. If you understand Darktrhone you understand the basic principle of 10.000 other black metla bands, if you understand Burzum you understand the basic principle of 10.000 other black metal bands...

    and listen to peste noire.

    So Bm should sound like thrash metal in your opinion ? Ok, ok...

  • Absu isn't bm but Peste Noir is lol? Calling Absu just thrash is dumb, what they have in common with thrash is the Reign in Bloodish riffage they sometimes display, which is closer to death metal anyway, but you've got the point right. Bm should encompass a mixture of influences, and if a band is really kickass and truly oldschool, you shouldn't make the difference between thrash, death or black anyway. Sure enough, some midtempo wank mixed with good atmospheric parts is great at times, some bands do a great job out of that. Master's Hammer ftw.

    Darkthrone-Panzerfaust(forget the myth that Transylvanian hunger is their best..).
    Immortal-Well the guy here already said pure Holocaust,if you want some epic manowarish 80's style though,I'd go for "At the heart of winter" also very catchy.
    Bathory-Under the sign of the black mark and Blood fire Death
    Melechesh-as Jerusalem burns-oldschool barbaric Black Metal with an oriental atmosphere.
    Moonblood-Blut und Krieg

  • Alright. I checked out immortal and gorgoroth and i like them a lot. I also got satryicon's discography and i am in the process of downloading some stuff mentioned on here.

  • ulver-natten madrigal

    no other album is needed. captures the violence and ferocity of black metal in every way. intense, unrelenting, melodic, atmospheric, evil.

    The Force Inside The Opposites
